DC Comics has announced that legendary action and horror writer/director John Carpenter is teaming up with Borderlands 2 writer Anthony Burch to pen a special one-shot comic entitled Joker: The Year of the Villain.

The official logline for the comic reads as follows:

“Now a human-alien hybrid, Lex Luthor has made his appeal to the world, asking its citizens to embrace doom and give in once and for all to evil, humanity’s true nature. In exchange, he will grant them the tools to ascend to their ultimate selves. While some DC villains (and heroes) are willing to hear what “Apex Lex” has to offer, the Clown Prince of Crime isn’t going to wait around until Lex gets to him. This puts The Joker on a mission to get his swagger back in a world gone bad by out-badding everyone else, proving that the greatest evil is always the one that leaves them laughing.”

The comic marks the DC Comics debut for the duo, however it is not the first time the two have worked together, as Burch and Carpenter previously collaborated on the 2017 comic series Big Trouble in Little China: Old Man Jack, an extension of Carpenter’s cult classic action film in which Kurt Russell’s Jack Burton comes out of retirement to defeat the ancient god Ching Dai.

“The Joker is the greatest villain in comics,” Carpenter said. I’m proud to be reunited with Anthony on this project.

”I’m excited beyond words to be writing for Gotham’s greatest villain,” co-writer Burch said. I hope the Joker’s exploits make you laugh, shudder, and grow nauseous all at once.
