Eh. I gotta take a break from the majors again. ( )

I was in awe of this book. A story told by one of joker's new hires if you will. It was a different perspective from what i'm use to reading when dealing with the joker, in my opinion a must read! ( )

When Jonny Frost picks up the Joker at the gate of Arkham Asylum, he hopes to make an impression on his newly released boss, so he volunteers to help him regain control of the rackets in Gotham in this gritty and gruesome tale of crime and insanity. Also appearing in this dark saga of revenge are Two-Face, Killer Croc, Harley Quinn, the Riddler, the Penguin, and inevitably, the Batman. ( )

After being inexplicably released from Arkham, the Joker goes on a rampage to reclaim what he believes to be his - the money, the criminal network, and the entire city of Gotham. Along the way, a small-time criminal named Jonny becomes one of Joker's henchmen, which he realizes isn't something he should have aspired to in the first place.

The Joker here is dark and insane. There is plenty of murder, theft, and rape - too much for my taste, to be honest. Azzarello does a fairly good job of getting into the Joker's psyche, showing different facets of his personality.

The art is the real seller for this book, in my opinion; it fits the story perfectly. I'd almost call it beautiful if it wasn't for the fact that it's depicting so much horror. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

"Joker is getting out of the madhouse and, though he's laughing, he's not happy. 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. But now Joker's back on the street and eager to make Gotham bleed like it's never bled before. During this long night of the soul, he'll cross paths with the likes of The Penguin, Two-Face, Killer Croc, Harley Quinn, The Riddler and, of course, The Batman-- and heaven help them all" -- dust jacket.… (more)
