One of my favorite comics on the shelves right now, is BATMAN: WHITE KNIGHT. It's such a great out-of-continuity tale of a Batman who's just a bit more extreme, a Joker who's just not quite as evil (so far anyway), and a set of circumstances that are taking the story in very interesting directions. One of the break-out characters of the piece is NEO-JOKER. Who, if you don't read the book, is a Harley Quinn doppelganger who stepped in the place of the actual Harley for apparently many years, quite to the obsessed Joker's surprise. When the actual Harley reemerges and asserts herself back into the limelight, Doppel-Harley assumes the Joker's abandoned role as resident villain and Gotham psychopath.

While reading the Twitter feed of the books creator, Sean Gordon Murphy, he mentioned that while he's happy with the story as well as the reception the books have received he's not crazy about the name "NEO-JOKER". It just sort of happened and he's yet to invent something better. So with this in mind, why don't we use this month's costume contest to make up a new outfit concept for NEO-JOKER? And, you know, if you think of a name that works better, feel free to use that too!

I hope this one will be a lot of fun and get a few folks inspired! Deadline will be one month from today: March 19th. I look forward to seeing what the CV Artists can come up with! Cheers!

I would really like to get this contest off the ground with plenty of entries. Normally, these contests have no prizes involved but today, while at the LCS for New Comic Book Day, I picked up this copy of BATMAN: White Knight #1, which I will offer to the winner of this contest if we can get at least 5 entries. Ask your friends who draw to join, tweet it out. Let's try to get some new blood in here and the winner gets a small gift from me. :)

In effort to facilitate this, I'd like to add an extra week on to the deadline if no one minds. (MARCH 26)

Cheers!

THE DEADLINE HAS BEEN REACHED. NO FURTHER ENTRIES WILL BE ACCEPTED. THANKS EVERYONE!

@ZZoMBiE13: I've only read the first issue, but I definitely need to catch up! Neo-Joker is such a good character design. This is definitely gonna be a challenge.

Ok, cutting it close I know but here are my daughters quick sketches to round out the 5.

The first, I think she shot it off pretty quick.

I added it in after I saw y'alls posts. I thought I did it originally, but apparently I'm a stupid.

Anyway, I'll have the voting thread up here in a little while. No more entries will be accepted.
