DC’s October Batman solicitations reveal the end of the Joker War and return of Grifter

The Joker War will finally come to an end this October and DC Comics has given us an early look at how Batman, the Bat-family and his new allies will pick up the pieces in the aftermath of his latest “final battle ever” with arch-nemesis, the Joker. One of the biggest takeaways? The Grifter, who first appeared in Jim Lee’s Wildcats in 1992 and has been conspicuously absent from the DC Universe since the Future’s End storyline, seems to have somehow found a way to ingratiate himself with the Dark Knight… or has he?

Check out the DC’s solicitations for Batman #100, Detective Comics #1028, and Batman #101.

Spinning out of the events of “The Joker War” and Detective Comics #1027 comes a tale of the beginning of the end for Gotham City’s status quo. With tensions flaring and a new mayoral candidate making his anti-masked hero agenda known to the city, Batman and his allies are stretched thin to keep the peace. But just as things couldn’t look any worse, a string of gruesome murders has left a trail of the most corrupt in Gotham City losing their heads…literally. If Batman doesn’t quickly find the killer— the Dark Knight will be next.
