Everyone’s favorite prankster villain is making his way back into the pages of a comic book near you.

According to DC Comics, the Joker will be making his visual return in an upcoming issue of Batman #13-The New 52 titled “Death on the Family” with new harebrain schemes that are sure to rock not just the Batman clan but all of Gotham City. The adventure will be told by Scott Snyder, Greg Capullo and Jonathan Glapion.

“Joker is my favorite villain of all time,” Snyder told THE SOURCE. “Not just in comics. In everything – film, books, TV. He’s the greatest, hands down. So this story is something extremely important and personal to me – something I’ve been building in my head ever since I started working in Gotham.

“Basically, this is my big exploration of the Joker…only bigger in scope. Bottom line: it’s the biggest, baddest, most shocking Joker story I could tell.”
