A comprehensive look at the greatest comic book villain . . . ever. Since his first appearance in 1940's Batman #1, the Joker stands alone as the most hated, feared, and loved villain in the DC Universe.The Joker is the first retrospective chronicling one of the most groundbreaking and game-changing villains of all time, and contains images from his more than seventy years in comics by comic book artists and writers such as Bob Kane, Bill Finger, Jerry Robinson, Dick Sprang, Grant Morrison, Dave McKean, Neil Gaiman, Geoff Johns, Alan Moore, Brian Bolland, Brian Azzarello, Bruce Timm, and Paul Dini. Also included are images from his various film, television, animated, and video game incarnations, such as the timeless interpretations by Cesar Romero, Jack Nicholson, and Heath Ledger, who won his posthumous Oscar for his portrayal of the Joker in 2008's The Dark Knight.… (mais)

I have been a huge Joker fan for many years. The book has wonderful artwork from many of the artists from the comics. The book is comprehensive and informative but I wish it featured interviews by comic book artists, writers, filmmakers and actors such as Kevin Smith, Jack Nicholson, Cesar Romero, Heath Ledger, Tim Burton, Christopher and Jonathan Nolan. I would have loved to have read their opinions and thoughts on the Joker and his ideology. It also would have been interesting to get an actual psychiatrist's point of view too. Toys and clothing and other merchandise are not featured in the book though, just the comics and live-action media. So it doesn't have that scrapbook feel that I was anticipating, it has more of a Wikipedia entry feel to it. You're also not learning any new information about the character that you don't already know so don't expect it to be eye-opening or have a whole new perspective of the character. The Intro by Mark Hamill, the definitive Joker voice in my opinion, was great. If you are a Joker or Batman fan, purchase this. ( )

The Joker is the greatest super villain in comic book history and I firmly believe that this isn't up for debate. Sure, there are more powerful villains. Maybe there are some that have achieved more (i.e. Doomsday did actually kill Superman). However, when it comes down to it, no one is as entertaining, twisted or as unpredictable as The Joker.

His ongoing (albeit never ending) rivalry with Batman has spanned nearly seventy-four years and has produced some of the most compelling storytelling in any fiction medium. Therefore, it’s about time that someone took up the task of crafting a visual history of the Clown Prince of Crime.

Accompanied by an excellent foreword from Mark Hamill (Joker’s most notable voice), author Daniel Wallace brings you a wealth of information regarding Joker’s appearances in comics, television, movies and video games all crammed into a modest 208 pages.

Aside from a few questionable mix-ups on dates (Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight was listed as being released in 2009), the material here is solid as the majority of his most well-known moments and stories are covered thoroughly. There’s even a few laugh out loud moments regarding some of the more questionable stories Joker has been subjected to (The Iranian Advisor to the UN?!).

If I have one complaint, it’s going to be about the size. I understand that the full pages work well given the subject matter (full two page shots of iconic comic book art) but it’s extremely uncomfortable to hold and read.



The fact that Cesar Romero didn't shave off that damn mustache to play The Joker is both awesome and infuriating at the same time. Hey, I love my beard but there’s no way I’d keep it if someone told me I was going to portray The Agent of Chaos. ( )
