Description of this Book

The Joker has been mysteriously released from Arkham Asylum, and he's none too happy about what's happened to his Gotham City rackets while he's been away. Briuan Azzarello and Lee Bermejo bring you the most terrifying Joker tale ever written! Joker tells the story of one very dark night in Gotham City--a harrowing night of revenge, murder and manic crime as only the Joker can deliver it, as he brutally takes back his stolen assets from The Penguin, The Riddler, Two-Face, Killer Croc and others. Brian Azzarello and Lee Bermejo--the superstar, critically acclaimed creative team behind Batman: Damned and Luthor--unite to tell a haunting, crime noir story about the Clown Prince of Crime. Joker's 10th Anniversary is celebrated with this brand new, DC Black Label edition. DC Black Label, a new publishing imprint from DC Entertainment, gives premier talent the opportunity to expand upon the canon of DC's iconic Super Hero comic book characters with unique, standalone stories that are outside of the current DC Universe continuity. Featuring an all-star lineup of creative teams that will craft their own personal definitive DC stories in the tradition of compelling literary works like Batman: The Killing Joke, All-Star Superman and Kingdom Come.

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review An ink-dark series about consequence-free revenge. --New York Times Style Magazine Disturbing, violent, oddly psychological and insanely wonderful. --USA Weekend The story has it all: flawed protagonists, dirty cops, conspiracy, guns and that big mistake that makes it all go wrong. --Chicago Tribune A meditation on money, power and morality ... for our money, the best current ongoing series. --Playboy If you liked The Dark Knight, Joker is a must-have for your bookshelf. --MTV.com A deeply disturbing and completely unnerving work, a literary achievement that takes its place right alongside Alan Moore's The Killing Joke. --IGN
UK Review Bertrams Star Rating: 2 stars (out of 5)
