While away, his fellow rogues have sliced and diced his chunk of the pie and sold it off for scrap-- thinking he was gone for good.

Brian Azzarello's "Joker" is very dark, scary graphic novel. Focusing on the Joker, newly released from Arkham Asylum after having been declared sane by his doctors, he's ready to regain his former criminal empire.

Drawn from Heath Ledger's portrayal of the Joker in "The Dark Knight" this is one mean, nasty Joker, a hardcore criminal who drinks too much, gobbles pills by the score and kills for the sheer pleasure.

Told from the perspective of Jonny Frost, a small time Gotham crook who volunteers to pick up the Joker at the gates of Arkham when none of the other criminals really want to. Jonny figures that getting in early with the Joker and becoming his right-hand man is the ticket to climbing the underworld ladder and becoming "someone," getting into the backrooms of the illegal dealings instead of just being a hired hand.

As the story unfolds and he spends more and more time with the Joker and sees the Joker for who really is, well, is it too late for him? Can the Batman help?

Great story, brilliant, frightening artwork... ( )

Not my favorite story - but the illustrations in this comic wowed the crap out of me. Dark, gritty, and impossible beautiful. To everyone's surprise the Joker has been released from Arkham Asylum and shit in Gotham is about to get dark. The Joker is none to pleased to learn that his turf has been taken over and his assets claimed so he wastes no time in setting his city back to the way it should rightfully be. He shakes down Killer Croc, the Penguin, the Riddler, and Two-Face and takes absolute delight in putting everyone back in their place. The Joker's insanity is his calling card and to him there is a method to his madness. Dark and gritty; but not my favorite. ( )

A devilish birthday present. Love the art work by Lee Bermejo...vibrant, sharp, detailed, dark spirited and always seemed to choose the best angle. Joker from the Dark Knight film filtered through noir and doom. How dark is dark...turn to the next page and find out. ( )

My first experience with Batman was through the 1966 series as I was growing up in the 80s. I remember watching it and finding it hilarious.


Holy atomic pile, Batman!

Then as I got older I watched Batman with Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer and George Clooney (Keaton was my nr 1 Batman and still is) and Jack Nicholson was a mad and fun Joker. Then came  Christian Bale and with him Hedge Ledger as the Joker and his Joker was a mess, a great mess but very much far away from the Joker of my childhood. And Joker in this graphic novel is very much a dangerous, psychopathic mess just as Joker is in The Dark Knight.

Somehow Joker is released from Arkham Asylum, which is very weird since he is clearly crazy and should be looked up… for good! But he’s back in the street. This story is told through the eyes of Jonny Frost, he’s the guy that picks up the Joker outside the Asylum and he will follow Joker around as he is trying to establish Gotham as his city again. Many famous people will cross path with the Joker and Jonny; The Penguin, Two-face, Harley Quinn, The Riddler, The Croc… and, of course, Batman.



The Joker is very dark, gritty and violent. It’s not a fun read, The Joker is clearly out of his mind and anyone standing in his way will get hurt and those by his side… well they will get hurt too. I liked the artwork. I liked how he crossed path with other villains and how it slowly led the way to the final confrontation with you know who... ( )

Oh man, this is a great graphic novel. The story line is really nice, as are the very iconic character descriptions. The art is absolutely amazing. Loved it. ( )
