DCeased #4 Variant Introduces Chilling Zombie Joker

DCeased #4 FRANCESCO MATTINA Joker variant

Star Wars: Darth Vader cover artist Francesco Mattina's variant for DCeased #4 has imaged what a zombified version of the Joker might look like.

This isn't the first variant for the series to feature Joker. Other covers include Joker as Pennywise from IT,  getting murdered by Jason Todd and a zombified Batman biting at zombie Joker. Although this isn't the first cover to feature the Clown Prince of Crime as a zombie, it does show him in much greater detail than that aforementioned cover.
