The Joker Batman!

This type of story where the Joker and Batman possess each others bodies has occurred a few times, most recently about five years ago. This story that I have now posted is the first time that it happened.
I believe that this story was written by Bill Finger and pencils by Dick Sprang and inking by Charles Paris. I base this all on the look of the Joker and the fact that there are some oversized props used in the story (a Finger trademark!).

This One’ll Kill You, Batman!

This was the second Joker story after the end of the Grim Jester’s five-year hiatus. It was written by Denny O’Neil and served as a precursor to the Clown Prince of Crimes’ own short-lived series.





















Surprisingly there were a few DC readers who did not like this story at the time it was printed, which could be why it has since only been reprinted once in Batman In The Seventies. Many people did not like seeing Batman looking like a buffoon laughing all the time, which in my mind just made him a little bit vulnerable and the Joker a little bit more threatening.

The Joker Walks The Last Mile

The Joker would have to be my favourite comic book character of all time. I especially love the ‘old school’ Joker from the 1940s, who was equally homicidal and insane. In this story the Joker comes up with a brilliant idea on how to get away with his crimes, to confess and get executed. I know it sounds crazy, which is perhaps why I love it so much.

The Joker – Rackety-Rax Racket!

I previously posted a few Joker stories on this blog. I posted The Joker Walks The Last Mile here, The Happy Victims here and The Joker’s Movie Crimes here. In the next couple of weeks I will be posting two of my favourite Joker stories from the 1970s, The Joker’s Five Way Revenge and This One’ll Kill You Batman.

Rackety-Rax Racket is a Joker story from the late 1940s (I think), a time when the Joker was in a transitional phase, from a cold blooded murderer to a pest who would pull elaborate pranks to make Batman look foolish.This story features nice art-work from one of my favourite Bar=tman artists Dick Sprang.
