With DC Comics about to release Doomsday Clock No. 4 today, comic fans also got a sneak peek at an upcoming variant cover to this incredible series and it shows two iconic characters doing battle.
Colorist Brad Anderson tweeted out over the weekend the upcoming cover for Doomsday Clock No. 7 that features Rorschach giving a beating to The Joker
The series has gone bimonthly, in order to keep it theoretically on schedule while allowing Frank and Anderson the time required to do the highly-detailed, deeply-researched work that the series demands.

In Doomsday Clock No. 4, we see Gary Frank using his sense of humor to create what he calls "pancakes with Rorschach sauce." The Joker will get plenty of cover time, as Frank already tweeted out the "Clown Prince of Crime" is prominently featured on Doomsday Clock No. 5.
In Doomsday Clock, the "world peace" from the end of Watchmen has been laid bare to the world, and Ozymandias is dying. Hoping desperately to save the world before he goes, he recruits a new Rorschach and a pair of minor costumed villains from his own earth to travel to the DC Universe, where he hopes to find Doctor Manhattan and convince him to return home.
Doomsday Clock #7 will hit the stands in late summer/early fall.
