SDCC 2019: Jeff Lemire talks his two DC Black Label books, Joker and The Question

Jeff Lemire shares new details about his upcoming Joker and The Question series with DC Black Label.

Reporting on the DC Black Label San Diego Comic-Con panel meant getting the scoop on cool new series like the Harley/Joker series from Kami Garcia. The panel was titled “Building the Future of Super Heroes with DC Black Label,” further putting focus and importance on the year ahead for the label. The panel was moderated by executive editor for DC Black Label Mark Doyle with panelists Scott Snyder, Greg Capullo, John Romita Jr., Kami Garcia, and Jeff Lemire. 

After talking about Snyder and Capullo’s Batman, Romita Jr.’s Superman, and Garcia’s Harley/Joker book things moved to Jeff Lemire who has two books coming out later this year. The first is Joker: Killer Smile with art by Andrea Sorrentino. Mark Doyle said Jeff Lemire’s Joker story is about what the Joker could do to people. Lemire said he doesn’t do quite as much research as Garcia, but wanted to exlore the fear Joker is capable of instilling in others. Given the floor, Lemire said the series will be set in the suburbs, which is a compelling aspect to him since we haven’t seen the suburbs of Gotham much in the past. Check out the art below which feature some unnerving kid art as well as gorgeous early art from Sorrentino.

Joker: Killer Smile will debut on Halloween October 30th.

The panel was winding down so Lemire had to be quick when talking about his next book The Question: The Deaths of Vic Sage. Lemire said each issue is set in a different timeframe, one of which includes a western setting. The Question is fighting an adversary with a thousand faces and the book is about what the Question would be facing in a modern era. 

 

Doyle said he was very excited for fans unfamiliar with the character to dig into this series. You can find the first issue of that series on November 20th wherever comics are sold.
