"The Dark Knight series is all from Batman's point of view. But if you look at Dark Knight 2, you'll see a Superman who's much calmer than the one in the first Dark Knight. Batman and Superman are dead opposites. I love Superman. Do I love Batman more? They're not people. They're only lines on paper."

- Frank Miller

... written by Chuck Dixon.

(That said, it's a strong contender for Greatest Joker Story Ever Ever too, at least in my book.)

One of the few Joker-related things done by the New 52 leadership that I absolutely agree with is their including Detective Comics #726 in the Joker: A Celebration of 75 Years TPB. I find Chuck Dixon to be one of the most criminally underrated Joker writers of all time, and they probably couldn't have picked a better representative of his Joker writing than this one (Robin #85, while delightful, is a little too continuity-heavy, and most of the others are too long).

This is a tight little yarn that depicts the Joker at his most primal - no purple suits, no laughing gas, and he doesn't even leave Arkham. And yet he's instantly recognizable in every panel, not just because of the white skin and green hair, but because Dixon gets the heart of the character: that sneering, sadistic edge, always (always) cut with a genuine comedic flair. It's a lesson that certain other Joker writers would do well to take to heart.

Let's take a look.

Brad Meltzer: "For the first time in a long time, you can see Batman's eyes. That may seem like a minor change. It's not. Johns and Frank know that the real appeal of Batman is what hides within him. Now they're letting us take a brand new, breathtaking peek ... inside and out."

Geoff Johns: "A lot of the elements and a lot of the character and a lot of the revelations and mythologies point back to Diana. And this is a journey for Diana and almost a reaffirmation of what Wonder Woman is, and what she represents. So it's going to explore all of that, and then on the story side, it's going to reveal a lot of secrets about the DC universe and our characters that we don't know. Jay [Jason Fabok] and I are really trying to make this an epic event book in the monthly book, but there's also a level of mystery to it."

Corin Howell: Where we do have serious tones in the series, Bat-Mite brings out the fun and weird moments and that's what I hope to really bring out more as the series goes on. I have a lot of fun drawing Bat-Mite, so I hope you guys have a lot of fun reading it!
