Joker: Graphic Novel Reviewed

Yesterday I got myself an early birthday present. In case you don’t follow such the world of Geekdom the new Joker Graphic Novel came out the other day.

Brian Azzarello and Lee Bermejo’s Joker has taken my favorite villain ever further, much to my delight and surprise. I could not put it down. The story was great and the illustrations take cues from TDK’s Joker. The basic premise is, the Joker for reason unknown to anyone, has been released from Arkham Asylum cured of his insanity. The Joker finds that he no longer owns what he calls “his city” and makes quick actions to take it back. Told through the experiences of the Joker’s new driver and right hand man Johnny Frost, the novel takes you on a wild gritty gory ride and incite to the Joker’s personality. Never before has the Joker been so humanized and demonized at the same time. This is a must read for any fan of the character. Great stuff…I think I’ll go read it again now!

    This is kind of late but what a tragedy is was losing Heath Ledger. That was the first and last movie I’ve seen him in (Not running out to see BBM). Absolutely Brilliant! I don’t think very many actors could have taken the joker character and brought such a sense of human realness and trueness of life as Ledger did. Maybe I’ll check this out. Thanks.
