Sean Murphy's Batman: White Knight will feature a number of firsts, including a nude love scene starring two iconic DC characters.
Those characters are the Joker and Harley Quinn, whose relationship has been the subject of many a storyline. In all that time though the two have never shared a bed together quite like this, and Murphy gave fans a sneak peek at the panel.
It will also likely be the first love scene Harley shares with a sane Joker. In Batman: White Knight, Joker has fully regained his sanity, and his first step is to make amends with Harley Quinn. From the looks of this scene, it seems like that process went rather well.
Things get stranger though, as the series also features Joker (going by Jack now) as the book's main hero.
“Seeing Gotham for the first time with clear eyes, his psychosis now cured, he starts to understand the absurdity of vigilantism and how Batman's actions are only contributing to Gotham's endless crime cycle,” Murphy said. “Joker sets out to beat Batman by becoming the White Knight that Gotham really needs.”
