Over his decades-long reign, this popular criminal mastermind has caused tons of mayhem. But this time around, he's planning to do something bigger than ever before. This plan is possible because he has more than enough resources to pull this off.

When the upcoming Joker War Zone #1 special issue comes out this September, the Joker's private army will show that he's funded his army using Bruce Wayne's wealth.

This latest storyline in the Batman universe, with Guillem March behind the art and James Tynion IV responsible for writing, has a new villain pulling the strings named Designer.

What Lead To The Joker Gaining The Funding?

Many years ago, the greatest villains of Batman were roped into a consultancy session by the Designer so that they could work together to come up with their plans to make them the greatest ever,

The plans that they worked together to think up are now finally coming to fruition, even if they aren't active anymore. Catwoman has a plan to steal billions of dollars from the Wayne family. However, Batman and Catwoman, who is now reformed, have been put up against the underworld of Gotham who is still going through with the plans of the Designer.

A one-shot comic from DC has been announced, which ties into the Joker War event. It will be called Joker War Zone, and it will feature stories that take place in Gotham City.

The stories will be written by current Batman writer James Tynion IV, The American Way author John Ridley, along with The Flash writer Joshua Williamson. The art for the stories will be done by current Batman artist Guillem March, Batman: Eternal's David Lafuente, as well as Godzilla: The Half-Century War creator James Stokoe.
