Batman #98 and #99

With Batman #92 hitting shelves today, DC Comics offered a first look at where the story heads and a preview of the covers to Batman #98 and #99.

DC’s Batman comic makes a triumphant return to shelves today with the publication of Batman #92, but come September the Caped Crusader will need his original sidekick’s help! If Nightwing’s memories don’t return in time for “The Joker War,” will Harley Quinn step in and be Batman’s white knight?

“The Joker War” officially kicks off in Batman #95 in July, but when Batman #98 hits shelves on September 1, Harley Quinn steps in to become Batman’s savior! Batman is at his most vulnerable following a massive dose of an experimental new Joker toxin, so while the Dark Knight haunted by demons and visions it’s up to Harley Quinn to protect him while he recovers—because Punchline is on her way!

And then in Batman #99 on September 15, Nightwing returns to Gotham City in “The Joker War” part four! Things have changed, as Batman realizes he can’t fight this war alone. He’s going to need help. Before he faces down The Joker, he must call up his trusty partner Dick Grayson! But can Dick reclaim his lost memories in time to join the battle?

Batman #98 and #99, written by James Tynion IV with art by Jorge Jiménez and covers by David Finch (#98) and Jorge Jiménez (#99), plus card stock variant covers by Francesco Mattina and Jorge Jiménez, will hit shelves on September 1 and 15 and also be available through digital retailers including ComiXology using our affiliate link.
