The battle for Gotham City rages on as the Joker takes control of Bruce Wayne’s fortune, giving him unlimited resources to take out the Dark Knight once and for all. DC Comics released a preview of their upcoming 48-page one-shot story Batman: The Joker War Zone #1 coming in September.

Featuring stories and art from acclaimed writers and artists including James Tynion IV, John Ridley, Guillem March, James Stokoe, Joshua Williamson, David Lafuente, Batman: The Joker War Zone #1 will feature appearances from other members of the Bat Family. Luke Fox, Cassandra Cain and Stephanie Brown will all make an appearance as the fight against the Joker takes a very personal turn. 

There’s no question that an effort is being made to incorporate more of the legacy characters into the Bat Family these days, and that’s a good thing. Batman really is at his best when his friends and family are there with him, and for too long he has been fighting alone. Now, as he faces the biggest challenge yet, he needs his family more than ever.

Take a look at a preview of some of the art from this not to be missed title:
