I am beginning to suspect that the Joker gets his death immunity by harvesting the life-force of his counterparts, be they international or multiversal equivalents.

*SPOILERS*


And then the two met. Jarvis Poker and the Joker at the end of the issue.

And what he did reminded of why I prefer the Joker who acts more like Jervis, than I do the Joker who acts like... the current Joker.

Not Jervis - Jarvis. I'm particularly annoyed because I read your comment first and then it made ME write Jervis down-thread.

...I'm very impressionable that way.

I would imagine that Joker would murder the hell out of this guy. I'm sorry, but he seems like a bit of a silly little man that no one would take seriously.

That's sort of the point of him. He's never been taken seriously because he's not a serious threat. He's in it for the reason the Joker USED to be in it for, because it was FUN.

Cliffhanger. Some details are mentioned up thread, but the gist is Joker shot Shrike, figured out Jarvis was already on his last legs, condescended to the British meta community as a whole, then threatened Jarvis with something that bothered him rather more than dying a couple weeks early.

How he'll be stopped (probably due to a combined effort by Knight, Squire, Jarvis, and a totally not-dead Shrike) is for the final issue of the series.

From: [personal profile] kumu_cyne
Oh hey, Wossy. Huh.
I rather like Jarvis Poker. I have a soft spot for bad guys that actually have fun with what they do. Not sadistic fun but a kind of giddiness that comes from doing what you love. Which is weird to say in connection to a criminal but hey. *shrug*
I feel like I should be reading Knight and Squire because every time it gets posted I really like what I'm seeing.

I don't get what's happening in the first page. Why is the doctor all calm and impassible and doing nothing while there is gas all around him?

Date: 2011-03-11 07:54 pm (UTC)
icon_uk: (Default)
From: [personal profile] icon_uk
Because it's not gas, it's a smoke bomb, the sort of thing stage magicians use to make an impressive departure; you throw it at your feet, and by the time the smoke has cleared you're gone.

It's an old gag and Jarvis is harmless, so the doctor knows that it's nothing serious, the smoke bomb is something of a dud, and Jarvis can't move fast enough to make use of it for an impressive departure anyway, it's just another example of him being a somewhat failed showman.

I LOVED this. The ending makes me nervous, but the story is so damned charming. A large chunk of this series is dedicated to showing how Knight and Squire are inspired by Batman and Robin, but ARE NOT Batman and Robin. There's a lightness to the whole affair, and this story really highlights the difference.

Knight deciding to give back Jarvis his dignity is a little bit of wonderful, especially with Jarvis' reaction to it. Jarvis' reaction to the Joker himself is equally well done. "[i]I wouldn't have killed that boy, for one.[/i]"
