This is a genuine DC RRP (Retailer Representative Program a.k.a. Retailer Roundtable Program) comic from DC's 2008 RRP conference; these meetings were for 60-80 select and diverse retailers (from small one-shop dealers to large retailers).

The sketch cover below features both the Joker and Batman in a single face (!) and has blue shading, which differentiates it from the standard sketch variant:
