The return of the Joker and his latest rein of crazy over Gotham comes to an end in April with the concluding chapter of Endgame in Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo's Batman #40.

Series writers Brenden Fletcher and Becky Cloonan are joined by Six Gun Gorilla artist Jeff Stokely, Adventure Time character designer Joy Ang, illustrator Clio Chiang, and Anya's Ghost author Vera Brosgol.

The Land of Ooo is home to many emotional souls, but the Earl of Lemongrab is perhaps the most high-strung of them all - and that's the way Adventure Time fans like him. As such, artist Liz Prince will metaphorically crank the character to 11
Generally speaking, variant covers can be a drag. At their worst, they can emphasize comic "collectibility" over their actual content. Every now and then, though, someone gets it right, and Boom! Studios' latest round of Adventure Time and Marceline and the Scream Queensvariants is definitely a great example.
