Ah, Jervis Tetch. Generally regarded as little more than a third-stringer in the Batman mythos, with a nauseating appearance, a creepy personality, and an utterly stupid gimmick. Batman: The Animated Series is rightfully remembered for turning him into something more: a pitiful and sympathetic creature who was nevertheless just as creepy (perhaps even moreso) than his comics counterpart.

But once in a while, some story from the mainstream comics will rise to the challenge. Case in point: Detective Comics #841, in which the mastermind behind the BTAS version of Jervis, Paul Dini, sees if he can make lightning strike again.

The result? Well... it's not quite as memorable as the BTAS Hatter episodes (though that might be because the former sadly lacks Kevin Conroy and Roddy McDowall). Nevertheless, I regard it as one of the high points of Dini's hit-and-miss run on Detective, and the art from Dustin Nguyen doesn't hurt, either.

Warning: Spoilers for the issue's big twist ending, for those who haven't read it yet.
