The Joker: The Clown Prince of Crime Graphic Novel review


The Joker: The Clown Prince of Crime Graphic Novel review

Way back in 1975, before Heath Ledger and Jack Nicholson played a part in making the Joker as cool as he is today, the Joker became the first villain to ever star in a solo comic book series. Only the Joker, arguably one of the greatest comic book villains of all time, could pull off a solo title without Batman making a single appearance as a protagonist. The Joker: The Clown Prince of Crime finally collects all of the highly collectible single issues into one trade paperback. The Joker battles fellow Batman foes Two-Face, Catwoman and the Scarecrow in crime-filled capers full of mischief and villainy. Green Arrow, Black Canary, the Creeper and even the world’s greatest detective, Sherlock Holmes, make appearances against the Clown Prince of Crime. Although short lived, the Joker series is surely classic comic book entertainment at its finest. Based on the current popularity of the Joker, and other villains like Harley Quinn, a new series starring the Joker seems to be in order. Any Joker fan would be crazy not to include The Joker: The Clown Prince of Crime into their jokerific collection.

Special Thanks goes out to Queen City Bookstore and Artvoice newspaper.

Along with Solomon Grundy, The Joker is one of my favorite comic book villians and quite possibly the greatest comic book villian ever.
