Since his debut in Batman #1 in 1940, the Joker has been the Dark Knight's greatest foe, and has appeared on television in live action and animated series, in blockbuster movies and in video games. Now, just in time for the fall 2019 Warner Bros. film starring Joaquin Phoenix, DC publishes a new "best of" collection of the Joker's greatest stories. In these stories, the Clown Prince of Crime challenges Batman, Robin and the rest of Gotham City's heroes, creating chaos with every step he takes.

Also several early 1940s to 1960s stories by Bob Kane, Jerry Robinson and the famous Batman "ghost" artists, and Irv Novick and Dick Giordano, and sophisticated stories right up to recent works. Zatanna stars in a very well-drawn two-issue adventure, written by Paul Dini and drawn by Don Kramer and Wayne Faucher that is particularly good and new to us. Harley Quinn in at least one story, the final one of the collection. Written by Tim Seeley and drawn by Sami Basri.

I also especially like the Spectre story from 1997--The Joker actually takes over Jim Corrigan's demonic alter ego and is suddenly the all-powerful Spectre, in the style of the 1940s original as first created by Jerry Siegel. It's very cool. -Bud
