    3 Jokers is the kind of idea that necessitates a retcon in the future. Like the art though.

    Seriously though, if they explain how the comedian became one of the jokers, i might be down with this.

    While I'm not going to race out to buy it...

    Worse ideas have wound up leading to worthwhile comics.

    I wouldn't mind if Babs shot and crippled a Joker too.

    I would, Batgirl using a gun or crippling any villain is terrible writing for her character, as bad as if not worse than people wanting Batman to kill bad guys.

    I am still not convinced Three Jokers should be something other than a one-shot book. I imagine the story is no longer in continuity but DC could have 2 Jokers. There was a story in Batman right before A Lonely Place of Dying where a criminal masqueraded as the Joker and at the end of the story the criminal admitted to like being the Joker and tried to recreate the Joker's accident (by jumping into a vat of acid) to become a new Joker. Batman told him the acids today where stronger then when Red Hood became the Joker back then. He supposedly died after leaping into the acid. If it was retconned into existing and he survived it could explain why there are 2 Jokers in the DC Universe.

    I think the explanation for it will be the fulcrum on which the series rises or falls. Personally when Batman got in the Metron chair and asked who the Joker really was and was shocked at the answer, I about fell out of my chair. When we found out the answer ("there are three") my mind was double-blown.

    I don't know if this is a good idea or not because I don't know the idea yet. I'm nervous about it but I'm also dying to know what's meant by it. And though I don't love Johns' Batman I do love his superhero writing generally so I have high hopes for it.

    Fabok is on record (instagram) that it’s “...not what you think it is”, Johns had to “sell” him on the idea because he was “Sceptical” (sic). So, take that for what it’s worth. I’m not a Johns fan, but the story does intrigue me a bit.

    I'm still intrigued, but I feel like i would be more interested if this was an Elseworlds comic or an animated feature. Multiple versions isn't really novel in Earth-0 what with multiple universes, timelines, time travel, etc.

    I think someone mentioned it earlier, but if this isn't some sort of bait-and-switch, and is in fact 3 different Jokers, then this will have to be retconned eventually. HOWEVER, I'm hoping Geoff Johns knocks our socks off with this story.

    Wonder if theres a twist involving Clayface and maybe Film Freak that Joker put them up to it to pull a fast one on Batman.

    The problem is, Where are the other 2 Jokers? Right now the main one is trying to ruin the BatCat wedding, but what are the other 2 doing during all this?

    Why introduce 2 Jokers but keep showing us the same one?

    Isn't this story supposed to have multiversal/continuity implications? I thought the three Jokers were supposed to represent the three major continuity eras of the DC Multiverse/Universe: Pre-COIE, Pre-FLASHPOINT, and Post-FLASHPOINT.

    I’m curious to see where this all goes, and Fabok’s Art will be gorgeous no doubt.
