And what Batman, evil or not, would be complete without a Robin, on in this case, Robins? The Batman Who Laughs and his dark sidekicks also appear on September 13 in TEEN TITANS #12, part one of the “Gotham Resistance” tie-in. This four-issue crossover includes NIGHTWING #29, SUICIDE SQUAD #26, and GREEN ARROW #32, pitting DC’s bravest heroes against the threat of evil versions of Batman from the Dark Multiverse! Cover to TEEN TITANS #12 is by Stjepan Sejic and interior image is by Mirka Andolfo.

The Batman Who Laughs (and those dark Robins!!) get a one-shot tie-in, so check out Jason Fabok’s cover to THE BATMAN WHO LAUGHS #1 on November 15. We told you there would be “a horde of deadly beings that appear to be powerful nightmare versions of familiar figures” and we meant it!


Want a better look at The Batman Who Laughs? Riccardo Federici, the artist behind the image of the Dark Knights that we revealed at SDCC, has completed the set of Dark Knights with a look at the seventh evil Batman! You can’t get any more Metal than this!
