Product Description

Enter The Joker’s twisted world as the Clown Prince of Crime divulges his deranged perspective in this psychotic exposé! Revealing his demented thoughts on a range of topics, including choosing the ideal henchmen, the best way to kidnap a Super Hero, and the art of the killer punch line, The World According to The Joker is a terrifying journey into the mind of the ultimate super-villain. Featuring a wealth of bonus features, including a flyer for The Joker’s first stand-up gig, a Joker gas recipe, and the outrageously interactive “Wheel of Dead Robins,” The World According to The Joker gives unparalleled insight into the unhinged world of the Harlequin of Hate.

Editorial Reviews

GeekDad : “Like all my favorite coffee table books, this one is packed with extras like posters, flyers and even a Joker gas recipe to call your very own. Penned by Beware the Batman and Spider-Man Unlimited scribe Matthew K. Manning and illustrated by Joel Gomez, it’s a weird and wonderful title that’ll hit shelves on October 30th, just in time for Halloween.”

From the Batcave: “...a hilarious romp through the demented worldview of one of Batman’s (and comic books overall’s) greatest villains, and takes readers on an unparalleled and distorted trip through the character’s nearly 75-year long history. It’s a must-have for Batman fans, comic book lovers, and collectors alike.”
