 Overall Azzarrello's Joker graphic novel didn't do much for me mainly because, among many other reasons, it didn't feel like the title character was in fact Joker. Which is kind of funny given how many wildly different incarnations of the Joker have existed over the years.

That being said there was one exchange between Batman and the Joker that I loved.

Why do you let it be seen? )

Since it's been out long enough now, more from the Harley Quinn Valentine's Day Special.

And I can honestly say I never thought we'd see this old favorite...

Batman: Arkham Unhinged is a series that collected digital comics about the lead-up to BATMAN: ARKHAM CITY.
Why certain characters did what they did, what their plans were, etc. And one story takes a page with the whole "Tell me what you saw when you saw The Batman" thing.

I miss the JSA. It's erasure is one of the many problems I had with the DC Reboot, as it did away with the idea of a generational superteam that could act as semi-mentors to the current lot. Having there be superheroes that came before Superman and Batman that they could look up to the same way that other heroes looked up to them was a nice touch, and one lost by shuffling them all to another dimension and making them all the same age as the JLA folks.

As an example, here is a bit from their attempt at starting a combined Thanksgiving Dinner between the two teams...

A lot of us preferred the old pre-The Killing Joke Joker of the 70s and most of the 80s. Unlike the version since, there was so much variety in the types of stories you could do with him. You could do dark. You could do comedy. You could do dark comedy. It was whatever the writers felt like doing, that day.

Here's a story that was published the same day as The Killing Joke. The Joker has been contracted to kill the JLI. As this is the BWAHAHA era of the Justice League, you can guess how well that's going to go.




A cold, hard look into the terror and violence of insanity. Or something.
