"Rowdy" Roddy Piper Reported Dead at 61
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.
