The Joker has been mysteriously released from Arkham Asylum, and he's none too happy about what's happened to his Gotham City rackets while he's been "away." Brian Azzarello and Lee Bermejo bring you arguably the most terrifying Joker tale ever written!

The scourge of Gotham City reaches new levels of complexity and intensity in these two uniquely crafted stories from the New York Times best-selling and Eisner Award-winning team of Brian Azzarello and Lee Bermejo (Batman: Damned, Luthor).

He will stand over your body, with your blood on his hands, and I promise you he will laugh. Not because your life means nothing to him. But because death, for him, is the punch line.

The Joker has been mysteriously released from Arkham Asylum, and he's none too happy about what's happened to his Gotham City rackets while he's been away. What follows is a harrowing night of revenge, murder and manic crime as only The Joker can deliver it, as he brutally takes back his stolen assets from the Penguin, the Riddler, Two-Face, Killer Croc and more.

Collects Joker and Absolute Joker.

Praise for Joker (DC Black Label Edition)

"An ink-dark series about consequence-free revenge." --New York Times Style Magazine "Disturbing, violent, oddly psychological and insanely wonderful." --USA Weekend "The story has it all: flawed protagonists, dirty cops, conspiracy, guns and that big mistake that makes it all go wrong." --Chicago Tribune "A meditation on money, power and morality ... for our money, the  best current ongoing series." --Playboy "If you liked The Dark Knight, Joker is a must-have for your bookshelf." --MTV.com "A deeply disturbing and completely unnerving work, a literary achievement that takes its place right alongside Alan Moore's The Killing Joke." --IGN
