80 years ago, The Joker and Catwoman both made their comic book debut in 1940’s Batman #1. To celebrate the longevity of these fan-favorite and globally recognized characters, timed to The Joker 80th Anniversary 100-Page Super Spectacular #1 and Catwoman 80th Anniversary 100-Page Super Spectacular #1 this April, some of the most iconic looks of DC’s original rogues will be captured in a series of eight character masks with punch-out die-cut eyes by artist extraordinaire Ryan Sook.

Sook’s ability to perfectly chameleon the art style of Bruce Timm’s Catwoman and The Joker from Batman: The Animated Series along with replicating the iconic versions of Catwoman by Jim Aparo, Darwyn Cooke and Joëlle Jones as well as The Joker by Neal Adams, Frank Miller and Greg Capullo will provide fans with a fun way to participate in 80th Anniversary celebrations at their local comic book stores. Shops selling either The Joker or Catwoman 80th Anniversary will be able to deliver instant cosplay to customers arriving in their shops looking for these highly collectible issues.

Which Joker’s face will you wear this April for #TheJoker80? And which iconic image of Catwoman will you use to celebrate #Catwoman80?
