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!

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.

I first posted this here three years ago but with I figured with Batman's anniversary it's worth another look. On a related note, Comixology is having a huge Batman sale right now (750 issues for 99 cents a piece) and this story is one of them.

Over in my neck of the woods, there's still a few hours of Father's Day left, so let's celebrate it with one of my favorite Bat-writers of all time: Chuck Dixon! And this obscure little character he created named... uh, what was it again? Oh yeah - Stephanie Brown.

Jokes aside, I'm one of *those* Steph fans. The kind that basically lost track of her as soon as Dixon left DC, I mean. To this day, I'm still not sure whether I like the character in and of herself, or whether I just really liked the way that Dixon could spin an engaging, at least half-decent story out of literally any concept (the guy once wrote a Robin comic that was 22 pages of not-Barney vs. not-Mr. Rogers, for crying out loud). I hope to get to the bottom of that mystery soon, by finally diving into Steph's Batgirl series, but for now, let's take a gander at Steph's debut arc.

So... the Joker. Annoying lout illogically inflated to a supervillain-level threat by a combination of Popularity Power and the DCU's overly permissive good-guys, right? Totally irredeemable murderous douchebag, right? Batman should just go ahead and kill him, right?

All entirely accurate statements, which I cannot and will not contest in regards to today's Joker. Buuuuut...

*Puts nostalgia cap on*

There was a magical time when the Joker had more to him than just mindless cruelty, godlike competence levels to facilitate said cruelty, and an entire line of cheerleaders harping on about how "dangerous" and "unpredictable" he is. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, I refer to none other than that magical decade... the 90's!

The Joker: murderer, terrorist... child protector? )

and the there's Poison Ivy's level of Seasonal Affective Disorder

The art in this is so beautiful it makes me regret my scanner is such a poor qualty one... or it might make me wish I went in for digital comics more, but in any event, I recommend seeking out these issue for yourself, if only for the first four pages, which are amongst the loveliest I've seen in ages.

To everything there is a season... )

A little comic I had in my head for some time since Harley's appearance in Batman Beyond  comic and had a friend on DA do it... we had a bit of a miscommunication, but I think it has a decent turn out.
