 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.

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.

Eh, whatever. Here's something one of my pals from tumblr, the esteemed Juliandroid, drew in her spare time. I contributed the original idea... by which I mean I stole the general thrust behind this, combined it with my sudden and inexplicable desire to see a chubby Joker, and added a few more suggestions, all of which Miss Droid incorporated.

Then I commended mirth, because a villain hath no better thing under the sun, than to eat, and to drink, and to be merry... )

So posting infamously dark storylines in superhero comics seems to be the in-thing to do these couple days, and what better way than to continue the trend than with the comic that (arguably) started it all? But then I realized that everyone's probably already too bone-tired from picking Identity Crisis apart, so I decided to post the (relatively) funnest part from said comic instead.

(Also, I was originally going to title this "Accentuate the Negative", but then I realized there are some things too distasteful even for me.)

Insert Mitch McConnell joke here. )

Even though all of us intellectually know that the cast of Sandman (much like all Vertigo characters) work best when they're outside of the mainstream DCU, my inner ten-year-old has always wondered what a story about the Endless straight-up meeting Batman's rogues gallery would be like. Gaiman himself will almost certainly never write that story, but in the meantime...

... there's always fanart. )

At the cost of being both predictable and cheating the theme a bit, I'm going to go with a piece that already has my five picks banded together. Granted, the artist probably didn't think of them as a team when he drew it, but the idea popped into my head as soon as I first saw the piece, and now it won't leave.

You probably know what inmates will be behind the cut. Can you guess which? )
