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!

    When it was released in 2008, I heard great things about it so I picked it up ASAP. Boy, I wasn't disappointed! Great story and Bermejo shines as always with this artwork. An interesting "realistic" take on some of Batman's notorious villains.

  • Aug 02, 2010 Owen Hanlon from Manorville, NY

    This is a great read. The joker divises a plot to overthrow Gothams mobsters and gangs,and teams up with villians such as Killer Croc,Harley Quinn and much more

    the joker is one intense character. He definately means business, and in no way is a man to mess with... That of course unless your the Bat!

  • Jul 24, 2009 Scotty Winters from Brazoria, TX

    Joker is spectacular look into the behavior of the Joker in a classic plan to overthrow Gotham. The art differs from time to time, from rough, edgy, outlines to smooth, detailed paintings the next, which helps emphasize the important scenes. The point of view, surprisingly, is not of the Joker, but from a henchman who has grown close to the Joker, psychologically understanding his motives. This book, of course, is not for the faint-hearted. Since it was inspired by the Joker from "The Dark Knight", it is a gruesome and gory villain who doesn't always make sense to the reader. If you are looking for a Batman-packed graphic novel, this is not for you. In fact, Batman only shows in the very end. On the other hand, if you enjoy the insane, destructive, and erratic nature of the notorious villain, it is a great read.

    This book is both disturbing ans exciting at the same time.

  • Jan 30, 2009 Luis from Madrid

    Disappointing approach to the Joker. (Un)coincidentally resembles Ledger's Joker, but Azzarello doesn't excel as Bermejo's pencils tend to be excessive.

    Best part: Batman's appearance. (Forgive my english)

  • Jan 19, 2009 Christian from Austin,Tx

    This is a great comic escpically to any joker fans It just shows u how twisted the joker is like skinning a man alive also most of the artwork is awsome but on some pages it looks like crap and is not very good

  • Jan 01, 2009 Michael from San Antonio

    It was a really great read. The art work was very original and definitaly thoughtful. Mainly focuses on the joker through the eyes of someone that idolizes him, so if you want to see a lot of batman don't read this one.

  • Jan 01, 2009 Anthony from wisconsin

    a very good read for anyone who is a fan of the joker. its a good solid story for those who liked the movie "Dark Knight" highly recommended

  • Dec 28, 2008 Kenny from Boulder

    Wow...This book left me with a sickly twisting stomach- and I loved it! Though the art style was a tad inconsistant (some pages looked like oil paint, others like a traditional 2-D comic), it was a gripping and beautiful piece of work from which I'm still reeling. "Johnny Johnny" Frost presents an exceptionally fresh and endlessly invigorating view of the Joker with his thoughts (as written by the brillliant Brian Azzarello). A perfect companion to 2008's wildly popular film "The Dark Knight", this gritty graphic (and I do mean graphic) novel presents not only the newest take on the legendary Clown Prince of Crime, but also showcases other Arkham Asylum alumni such as the Penguin, the Riddler, and Two-Face, reinventing and reimagining some of these epic foes in ways that the comic community hasn't seen since Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale's Long Halloween, as well as bringing two of Gotham's least-represented villans- Harley Quinn and Killer Croc- back into play. Two thumbs up to a great book, I really hope to see more from this fabulous creative team.

    The graphics in this are phenomenal! I really enjoyed the story line. Any fan of the Joker will definitely love this! :)

  • Dec 10, 2008 Steven Wilcox from Clovis, Ca

    Brilliantlt demented and beautifully twisted!!! The third outing from the creative team of Brian Azzarello and Lee Bermejo leaves you feeling dirty. But in a good way. I've heard many people react to this book saying it must've been inspired by Heath Ledger's performance - but this book was two years in the making. This story stands out as one of the best Joker stories of all time. Certainly one of the most disturbing. We are also treated to Azz and Lee's take on some classic villians, like Harvey "Two-Face" Dent, The Riddler, Killer Croc and The Penguin. Oh yeah, the guy who dresses up like a flying rodent makes a cameo...

  • Dec 01, 2008 Sean Ogden from Doylestown, PA

    Picking up right where The Dark Knight left off, Joker's visceral story and visual presentation craft a sadistic little yarn right out of the work in which the Nolan brothers hath wrought. The re-envisioning of some of the most famous of Batman's rogues gallery startling, grimly satisfying and begs for a big screen transition. The Batman himself makes a brief but violent cameo which portrays him as nothing less than the badguy's boogeyman incarnate. If your a fan of the comics, the movies, or even just a great read, pick this one up.

  • Dec 01, 2008 Karl from Dallas

    Great new Joker story. Acts as partial sequel to Dark Knight movie. Could use more depth but brings back the Harlequin in a role that actually makes her bearable. Great read first and second times through but then you start wanting more from it as a whole.

  • Nov 14, 2008 Eric Dudley from Crestline, CA

    WOW! This story and artwork made me feel disturbed. I loved it. I couldn't get the images out of my head for a couple of hours, I just kept mulling it over and over in my head.
