One of the best-selling comic titles of the year so far has been DC Comics' The Batman Who Laughs, written by Scott Snyder and illustrated by Jock. A new variant for the The Batman Who Laughs #6 pay homage to one of the most popular Batman stories ever: Hush.
The penultimate issue in the miniseries will receive a variant cover by artist Mico Suayan and colored by Romulo Fajardo, Jr. for online retailer Unknown Comics. Suayan shared the full-color and black-and-white versions of the variant on Twitter.
The variant is a direct homage to Jim Lee's trade paperback cover for his and Jeph Loeb's classic Batman storyline Hush, splitting Batman with his Dark Multiverse counterpart and featuring various heroes and villains in the background and foreground. Lee's original artwork, with Scott Williams, is below.
The miniseries has followed its titular villain from an alternate dimension after being released from the custody of the Legion of Doom and targeting the main DC Universe's Batman. Originally planned for six issues, the miniseries was given a seventh issue by DC which will serve as the lead-in to a new Batman/Superman series by Joshua Williamson and David Marquez.
The Batman Who Laughs #6 is written by Scott Snyder and illustrated by Jock. The issue is scheduled to go on sale on June 12 from DC Comics.
