‘Batman: Death of the Family’ collection comes with Joker mask

Just in case those Court of Owls masks weren’t creepy enough for you, DC Comics will release the paperback collection of Batman’s “Death of the Family” storyline with a replica hand-painted vinyl latex mask of The Joker, with sewn-on hair.

Yes, that’s a mask based on the one the Clown Prince of Crime made out of his own skin, after having the Dollmaker carve off his face in the relaunched Detective Comics #1. Even if you don’t follow the comic, you’ll likely recognize the mask from DC’s marketing for Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo’s “Death of the Family” arc (above).

Collecting issues 13-17, by Snyder, Capullo, James Tynion IV, Jonathan Glapion and Jock, Batman, Vol. 3: Death of the Family Book and The Joker Mask Set will be available for $39.99 beginning Sept. 24.

Barf. That’s really gross.

Did they ever explain why he had the dollmaker cut off his face and then he sewed it back on? I always thought that was stupid

Tony Daniel explained it pretty clearly in issue it happened in. And Scott Snyder said it all again in Death of the Family. Go back and read it. I thought it was cool, and VERY meta (almost Joker explaining the need for the New 52 in a way)

Amazon has this for preorder for only $27.50.

I love it when people complain about a story that they didn’t even read…………

Not 3-17.

Shut up and take my money!! I’m so pre-ordering this

Should he even be able to talk without his lips?

2 face does……now what?

SWEET! My godson and nephews are going to love this!

My Halloween costume for the year.

One of the dumbest grimdark gimmicks of all time.
