Meghan's Pick of the Month
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!
This book offers a take on the Joker that is both similar to Heath Ledger’s Joker in The Dark Knight but also wholly unique. He is both comedic and terrifying. The artist’s rendering of Joker beautifully repulsive.
