After an engrossing first issue of Joker: Killer Smile gave us a fresh take on an iconic character, the much anticipated issue #2 is on the way this December. I’m eager to see where this goes, after such a solid opening book. Reading like a psychological thriller, with Andrea Sorrentino’s art suiting the style of Jeff Lemire’s story down to the ground, what’s not to love? Issue 2 cannot come soon enough.
Praise for Joker: Killer Smile:
“a slow-burn comic book about people, not superheroes, and the terror and insanity that The Joker can bring into their world.”–Nerdist
“a chilling and effective story of psychological horror.”–IGN
Ben Arnell promised his wife and child one thing: even though he spends his days attempting to reach the bottom of The Joker’s insanity, he would never bring that madness home. No matter how dark the work gets, he would never allow
The Joker’s craziness to tear their family apart.
And in that, he failed.
The Eisner-winning creative team of Gideon Falls kick their black-hearted chronicle of The Joker’s destructive influence into high gear with an issue that turns the entire story on its head, with disastrous consequences for Dr. Arnell!
