War of jokes and riddles
Batman, Volume 4: The War of Jokes and Riddles by Tom KingEarly in Batman’s career, the Joker and the Riddler would seemingly be natural allies. But each man determined that he and he alone must be the one to kill the Bat...and either would sooner burn down Gotham than be beaten to the punch line.
Untold until now, one of the darkest chapters in Batman’s history sees all of Gotham’s villains choosing sides in a battle of wits that soon turns into a full-blown war—complete with civilian casualties. In the War of Jokes and Riddles, only one side can claim victory...but the scars it leaves will shape Batman’s future as he makes the most important decision of his life.

Batman Rebirth War of Jokes and Riddles Prelude: Joker's Origin
Tons of great comics information was revealed over this past weekend, including the upcoming re-teaming of Snyder and Capullo on Dark Nights: Metal. Tom King himself was present as well, and he revealed lots of details about what he has in store for Batman. He also went into quite a bit of detail about his current run on Batman , and where the title is going in the next few months. It was a great panel with a lot of information. A year after he began, Batman thinks he understands the pain and power of Gotham.
Behind the theatrics and under the superheroic drama, Batman stories are often driven by one pervasive rhetorical question: is the Dark Knight the problem, or the solution? We know how it ends, clearly. So what, exactly, has been haunting the Dark Knight for so long? It turns out that, after a devastating reveal from the Riddler -- that he had been orchestrating the entire war in an attempt to craft a perfect punchline for the Joker -- Batman snapped. This, of course, would later prove useful to Batman, who was able to convince Charles to betray the Joker and help Batman stage a massive final showdown. A pretty absurd and meteoric rise for a D-list gag villain with a lame gimmick, right?
