Okay I love this picture. Just a LIL bit of critique, everything looks amazing... but Joker's torso looks a bit flat, I know all /my/ stuff is 2-D, and people in glass houses shouldn't throw stones, but just a suggestion to make you more amazing.
I have read the Killing Joke, and it's one of many different interpretations of the Joker's origin. The short story I mentioned above suggests an origin where the Joker had always been the Red Hood, and his madness as the Joker was a ruse to avoid prosecution. But I loved Alan Moore's origin story too.
"The Batman's" Joker? With the staight jacket and tie dye shirt? God help us, that is not the Joker, I don't care what they say. And Batman considering retirement after losing a fight? Works for Spider-man, but with Batman, it's just wrong. Those guys just don't know Batman.
I only saw a few episodes of The Batman, the ones with Penguin, Bane, and half of the one with Mr. Freeze. I have to admit, the theme song is actually very addictive. I've been looking everywhere for a copy of it.
Draw Nightwing? Well, I haven't before, though I think I may have tried it once. I could do that, sure.
Not to mention the recent suggestion that his dementia is a ruse. In a short story drawn by Alex Ross, it was suggested that the Joker only feigns insanity to escape any serious prosecution, and uses it to intimidate his enemies the way Batman uses fear.
aaww, dman, i missed that!!!
still, that does kinna make sense. It would explain whyt he's able to do wot he does so well with out getting himself, u know, jokerized...
woo! its that kind of stuff that makes him so damn cool!
If you're talking about death by Joker venom, he's immune because he has a natural immunity to it. His crazy act doesn't help with that. What it does, is it keeps him from getting the chair. An insanity plea will do that. The Joker is cold, methodical, and highly competent, just like Batman, and even though they never actually say it in the comic or on the show, you can kinda sense it.
In the story I mentioned, this revelation was revealed in an unofficial report found by a couple of Arkham doctors. They get all excited that they can finally put the Joker on death row using the report as evidence, and then they find out that the report was written by Harley Quinn, back when she was still observing the Joker as part of the Arkham staff (and they knew they couldn't use a report written by the Joker's henchgirl, with her being crazy and all), which is the Joker's real victory, escaping judgement and being able to rub it in their faces. You can find it in "Batman: Black and White: Volume 2," it's the first story.
