With another weekend behind us, we’re now one week closer to summer. Yes, summer. That blissful time of year where the sun is warm, the days are long and the water’s perfect. We love warm weather almost as much as we love comic books here at DCComics.com (we said almost), and if that’s you as well, then you’re in luck. Or rather, you may be if you act quickly.
To me, one of the most interesting things about Batman is how he’s managed to go through so many different incarnations—from a campy live action TV Adam West, to an animated Bruce Timm iteration, to an older post-retirement Frank Miller version—and rather than turning us off or getting fans upset, we’ve embraced so many of them. As a character he’s just so malleable. He has no powers, so anyone could be under that cape and cowl and give him a new vibe.

Earlier this year, DC Collectibles announced that they would be releasing a new line of action figures based on the highly influential and almost universally beloved Batman: The Animated Series. Fans were excited, and so were we. In fact, after we heard the news, we held an entire weeklong event here on DCComics.com to celebrate the series.
Yes, we know. It’s still chilly outside. You’re more likely to spend weekends with a nice cup of cocoa than you are sipping coladas on the beach. But summer’s just around the bend, and you want to make sure you’re ready.

Every legendary hero has an opposite number. The other side of the coin. The darkness to their light. These reflections of evil, death and menace bring out the best in our champions – if they can survive the experience.
But none compare to The Joker – the deadliest, most frightening villain ever to grace the comic book page and the bloodthirsty, grinning psychopath who, in his horrifying return to Gotham City, sported a new, disturbing visage: his own face!
