Tom King makes no joke announcing the death of the iconic villain, the Joker. The notorious villain is known for is constant disagreements with the main hero Batman. In the planned series, Batman/Catwoman, this ghastly clown takes his last breath. Tom King, alongside artist Clay Mann, “reunite for the untold tale of the bat and the cat.”. In a recent interview, Tom King talks about the ambitious storyline of the upcoming Batman/Catwoman comic. We may not see the comic soon, but this is planned to be the most popular series.
During the DC Connect #5 interview, we learned more about the upcoming comics. The DC Connect quickly starts with the plot of the planned series:
This sweeping tale is told across three timelines: the past, when the Bat and the Cat first fell in love; the present, where their union is threatened by one of Batman’s lost loves; and the future, where the couple has a happy life and legacy.”
Batman/Catwoman will be the comic we have always wanted in the DC world. Now that we have the plot, we are up to think about when the Joker will die. We may not find out anytime soon, but Tom King has a plan for us.
Tom King’s Thoughts on Upcoming Comic and Joker
We learned during the interview that more information will be released before the comic’s release. Tom King speaks of the work he puts into this comic. He describes Batman/Catwoman as “the end he has always wanted to write.”. This standalone series pushes the boundaries of our expectations. The relationship between the Bat and the Cat, Tom King, describes it as an exploration of Catwoman. How Catwoman evolves from criminal to partner, as well as focusing on how this changes her life. For the news, we are here for, the Joker’s death. At the end of the interview, we have the final question. What is Joker’s role in the story?
