The Joker returns to Gotham City! The Joker is through working with the Legion of Doom, and he wants to get back to his roots: giving Batman absolute hell! The Clown Prince of Crime comes back with a bang-and he's not about to take prisoners! As if that weren't enough, Lex Luthor delivers the cure for Mr. Freeze's beloved wife, Nora, freeing her from cryo-stasis at last! But something else is very, very wrong with Nora…

There's not much sweeter than the perfect simplicity of a self contained Joker story. A good one of these is worth a dozen high profile events. This issue may not be "Joker's Five Way Revenge", but it's a very solid three way at the very least. The Joker shows up at a carnival, then Batman shows up. Not only does the story end like so many others before it, nobody gets their face cut off. When a mug dies in this rag, they do it like the old days, with a smile on their face. It'll be just like the one you have on you when you read this one. Highly recommended for anybody needing a four color sorbet after digesting House of X, those who think Pennywise is a pansy clown, and people who think the any Joker story should end with him falling really far, preferably into a body of water.

I give it 9 out of 10 Grahams
