Written by Brian Azzarello Art by Lee Bermejo & Mick Gray Cover by Lee Bermejo
In the all-new, hardcover original graphic novel JOKER, writer Brian Azzarello (100 BULLETS) and artist Lee Bermejo (HELLBLAZER covers) – the creative team behind the acclaimed miniseries LEX LUTHOR: MAN OF STEEL – show an even darker and more disturbing side to the most dangerous man in Gotham: The Joker. After yet another stint in Arkham Asylum, The Joker finds “his city” divided among mobsters and costumed villains. Not content to settle for a piece of the pie, The Joker vows to take back the whole damn enchilada by any means necessary. Look for appearances by a slew of Gotham’s most wanted, including gritty takes on Two-Face, Riddler, Killer Croc, Penguin, Harley Quinn and even Batman! Not since THE KILLING JOKE have you seen such a powerful tale of The Joker – you won’t want to miss this one!

BONUS REVIEW by MATT STREETS

How much you enjoy this graphic novel depends on how you like your Joker. Do you prefer a more silly, Tim Burtony, purple pants wearing, gadget based psycho? Or would you rather have a Heath Ledgerish, pill-popping, booze-swilling, skulking sociopath? Writer Brian Azzarello goes for the latter, creating one of the darkest and edgiest Joker stories ever told. After being released from Arkham Asylum (for reasons which are never explained, but then again, does it really matter at this point?), the Joker, with help from Killer Croc and Harley Quinn, goes on a vicious rampage through the Gotham underworld to reclaim his lost territory. All of this is told through the eyes of newly recruited henchmen Johnny Frost, who quickly realizes the perils of being Joker’s sidekick. Artist Lee Bermejo really delivers the goods on the art side, giving a lush, fleshy, organic feel to the Joker and the bloody mayhem that he creates, and Azzarello creates a fully realized portrait of this madman and his reasons for the unending chaos he inflicts on Gotham (Batman shows up as barely an afterthought). This queasy, dark, brutally violent joyride is not the best Joker story ever told, but it’s certainly unforgettable. Not for kids.

I give it 9 out of 10 Grahams
