Geoff Johns has shared the finished variant cover for Doomsday Clock #5, and it's quite a laugh. After artist Gary Frank shared his penciled version over the weekend, the final version, now colored, looks outstanding.
The cover features the Joker putting on some Nostalgia-branded lipstick with a mirror that connects back to Ozymandias' company. In keeping with the clock theme, the Joker is also wearing a wrist watch, but this one has a Bat Signal on the face. A cartoon depiction of a nuclear explosion also hangs on the wall of a rundown apartment.
For those who are suffering from a lack of Joker in Dark Nights: Metal, Doomsday Clock promises to delve into the mystery of the three Jokers that was initially teased in DC Universe: Rebirth last year.
Featuring characters like Superman, Batman and Lex Luthor, DC’s upcoming Watchmen crossover, written by Geoff Johns and drawn by Gary Frank, has its first issue out November 22. Fans who are willing to stay up late can purchase it from participating stores at 11:57 PM on Nov. 21; issue #2 will arrive in late December. Issue #5, which has yet to be solicited, is suspected to hit stands sometime in March 2018.
