Batman #121 Daniel Johnston Exclusive Portfolio -- Joker Slate
**Pre-Sale Only: Ships on March 18, 2022.
This "Joker" Slate Portfolio Edition includes a full set of three comics with covers by Daniel Johnston. It is limited to 250 total production and exclusive to Electric Lady Studios. The portfolio is a pre-production image. Final product may vary slightly in appearance.
Included are three versions of Batman #121 available nowhere else, with different covers by the late singer, song-writer, and visual artist. Collected inside are a Batman cover, a Superman Cover, and a New Gods cover. Published by DC for Electric Lady in conjunction with The Contemporary Austin's retrospective Daniel Johnston: I Live My Broken Dreams, which is on view at The Contemporary Austin in Texas through March 20, 2022.
Electric Lady Studios, which manages the Daniel Johnston art catalog on behalf of Johnston’s surviving family, selected the images to be used for the variant covers. “This is a complete realization of one of Daniel’s biggest dreams—to have his designs featured on a DC cover and sold in his favorite comic shop. It puts a lump in my throat,” says Lee Foster, Electric Lady’s managing partner.
Contents of all three books are the same. Only the covers differ.
