DC released a load of solicits for their November titles, including several new images from Scott Snyder and artist Greg Capullo’s newest recreation of the Joker. While the images are quite titillating, they seem to have pissed Capullo off. The artist took to Twitter, saying that these pictures are a watered down version of his and Snyder’s horrifying vision, urging readers not to be fooled. His full statement can be read after the jump along with the pictures. This is good news for us horror fans! How do you feel about the latest joker pictures?
After seeing DC’s November solicits for Batman, Greg Capullo writes on Twitter:
As careful as I’ve been to save revealing our new Joker, the powers that be have let it out ahead if our book. Stay tuned fir MY pics
In my younger days, I’d have punched several holes in the walls of my office by now. Rest assured, I will give you terror when I draw him
When I draw it, THAT will be it
Try not to look at it. Wait for ours if you can
The more I’ve thought about the Joker leak, the more I began thinking that it may have been for the best. The fact is, the way Scott and I.. will give you the Joker may have been too much for some with out this diluted sample hitting the web. DC, rightly so, had concerns about- Our images and story. Perhaps they leaked this intentionally to test the waters or to acclimate your minds to what is coming from us.
Team Batman knows how to do one thing. Destroy. So, even if you do see the leak, you ain’t seen nothing yet. Trust me
I’m still not going to reveal my sketches. I won’t let this incident blow the whole works. Be patient. Terror is heading your way
