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? )

Now, I think I've been very restrained for the most part of late, with a distinct lack of chronically imperilled acrobatic heroes, more or less.

Time to sort of remedy that with some scans from a book I found yesterday which was an impulse purchase and not a bad one at that, It's a hardback book called "The World According to the Joker" (There's also one called "The World According to Batman" which I didn't pick up)

It's a glimpse into the Jokers head-space as part of a series of psychological examinations by Dr Arkham

It goes as well as you might expect )

I seriously, honestly, tried in good faith to have a different entry for each theme, but I'm afraid I'm going to have to break that self-imposed rule here. Much as I loathe him, Grant Morrison's take on the Joker during "Batman: RIP" is supposed to be an in-universe take on the character. More's the pity, since I don't think I've seen any comic-book redesign that's inspired this much rage for me.

There's not one specific design I have in mind, since Morrison had the J-man cycle through several through a couple of variations throughout "Batman: RIP", but in my humble opinion, they all suck.

Behind the cut: 90 percent of the reason behind my apathy toward Morrison's Batman work. )

I currently have a massive write-up of Knightfall sitting in my hard drive right now, but I'm afraid I won't be able to finish it before today is over. So, the short version...

There is exactly one page behind the cut. Can you guess what it is? )

No spoilers yonder for Batman #37 (BECAUSE SH*T WENT DOWN, YO), but there is one nice little callback from Death of the Family, showing how much ol' Mister J loves setting up his punchlines.


Also could someone loan this Joker a wig? )

I don't have the time or resources to make an exhaustive post about all my faves (which would probably take a series of six or seven posts), so I'll just take this time to blather on about the first guy that comes to mind: a certain Mr. Nolan who has created some of my favorite Batman-

Chris Nolan

Wait, who the hell invited you? Hit the road!

The first and best Nolan in the Bat-Business. Accept no substitutes. )

This should surprise no one who's familiar with my posts in this community, nor, really, anyone who pays attention to my username.

I. Love. The. Joker. Always have, probably always will.

Now, I'm fully aware of the "Batman/the police/some civilian should totally kill this asshole Villain Sue!" sentiment on many corners of the Internet, and I can understand them. Hell, in some ways, I emphasize with them. For the last ten or fifteen years, the man who once proudly called himself the Clown Prince of Crime has been headed down a pretty steep slide into mindless, humorless violence (interspersed with those obnoxious events that shove themselves in our faces and scream "SEE! SEE? THE JOKER IS BATMAN'S #1 VILLAIN AGAIN! HE'S NO LAUGHING MATTER NOW, BABY!"), and if anything, the DCnU and Scott Snyder have only exacerbated it.

And yet... and yet, no matter how low his low points get, they can never quite cancel out the highs. Perhaps those high points will never return, but even if that's so, he's already got plenty under his belt for us to peruse at our leisure.

Besides, I just can't hate a face like this.
