If you haven’t been following along, Neal Adams has been doing retailer-exclusive variant covers for DC’s The Joker. Like the covers for Neal Adams Month in 2016, each is a riff on an Adams classic.

The covers are the brainchild of Ryan Hetkowski of State of Comics in Plymouth, Michigan.
As usual, you can get raw editions, signed editions, CGC editions, you name it. Click here for what State of Comics is doing. The book will also be available at Adams’ online store, which you should check out here.
