Description

You miss the Joker–remember when he was so awfully cool and you just enjoyed watching Batman catch him and beat him in the face repeatedly?

It's just an album of cool, interesting artwork in different locations across Europe with a bit of trivia about them and very flimsy storyline, which had potential to be quite good actually.

As a Joker fan dissatisfied with the character’s current portrayal in comics but a major fan of Batman: The Animated Series and The Dark Knight (2009) portrayals, I found this Joker delightful. It’s a bit jarring because you’d expect Batman would be glad to open the door a little toward a Joker reform. However it does differ and i loved the artwork, how erratic it becomes as the virus begins to spread and batman is hallucinating and joker is doing his best to support the guy, by support i mean torment the ever living shit out of him, but y'know in an endearing way. In trying to keep ahead of each other both men have constantly been forced to improve and as a result have become more than they ever would have been alone.

Their exploration of Batman and Joker with this overarching premise brings them to test our level of comfort and tolerance, but when you look between the lines, you can see that their ideas explore the rawest form of both of these character’s dynamic.In the end, I’d say this is definitely a story that hardcore Batman fans should pick up, if only for the great art and Batman/Joker interactions.

The artwork though is the real star of the book, as it was always meant to be, and that’s the reason to check this one out. Still, I had an okay time looking through it and even went back to the comic a couple times to see how the finished product compared. The idea behind this book is interesting, but it’s one that really needed to be explored in a story that was more than four chapters. To translate this, the artwork also changes from one issue to another and perfectly captures their physical and psychological decomposition.

But here he’s finally been given the time and subject to produce exceptional work: I don’t think Batman and the Joker have looked this good since before the New 52 (and make no mistake, I really like Greg Capullo’s early run–even Joker with his face cut off at the beginning of Death of the Family). In some cases, Batman is delusional from the virus leaving Joker to long-sufferingly put up with his constant insults.
