It's about time. It's only been a quarter of a century, since she posed nude for him.

When is Batman 16 going to be released?

How many teeth does the Joker actually have? Double the amount of a normal person, by the look of it.
ZombieOverEasy - 1/12/2013, 3:57 AM
32, which just means he has all of his teeth.

Well at least that's how many I counted in the close-up shot.

So how long has Batgirl been able to walk?
ravennpilot - 1/12/2013, 4:39 AM
They needed to do a comic explaining how after so many punches and kicks to the face joker can still keep that many teeth in place.

^ Didnt you know. He can grow teeths back. ;)

By the way when did Joker change into Leatherface. Looks like ive missed alot.

As great of a villain Joker is, he has to die. There are heroes Batman can call in to help. Bats isn't doing anyone any good letting joker live.

There was an issue of Birds Of Prey where Babs knocked all of Joker's teeth out with an escrima stick.

Mind you,this WAS pre-New52...

i only follow the main 'batman' title, so i got a couple questions:

- where is harley in all of this? i cannot imagine she would be happy with him and another girl.

- and i can't see the joker missing an opportunity to 'dress' for an occasion like this. why is he still in that 'joe's garage' jumpsuit? of all people, i could see him enjoying the chance to dress up for his own wedding.

@maxxgone: I think Harley and joker broke up
AlexDeLarge87 - 1/12/2013, 10:15 AM
Thanks for the summary.

I'm trying to get into this but now that The Joker is a bad horror movie rip off its hard to enjoy for me. I'm glad others are enjoying though. No hate.;)

Bruce is not going to shunn any of his group that kills Joker. If it was two face or someone else then yeah. But ultimately knows he would do it if his Robins weren't around.
IronHood - 1/12/2013, 10:55 AM
Ohhh can't wait. Maybe the reason Babs can walk is she got something similar to what Bruce did in the Dark Knight Rises? That's my guess.
NorrinRaddical - 1/12/2013, 11:17 AM
good lord that art is a dated eyesore

@DukeAcureds
"Posed"

In reference to the article, I think this story arc has been one of the best in quite some time. I'm loving the Joker's new attitude. It's delightfully twisted, and I am greatly enjoying it. A must read for all Batman fans. I am really hoping Barbara kills him.

@maxxgone
yea Im getting tired of the Joes Garbage look myself. At least pit him in his classic purple yellow and green for his wedding.
mgeoff88 - 1/12/2013, 9:02 PM
I was hoping with the New 52 reboot they would completely retcon The Killing Joke.

@jphoenix In the panels where Barbara is in the wheel chair talking to her psychiatrist, she is 18 there.

When she's talking about what happened with the Joker, she said she was 17 when her life changed. It's confusing because the panel where she has a flashback it says 'Present Day.'

That threw me off at first too.

I am going to have to pick this series up once it's all in a trade paperback sometime...

I just hope he finally gets his face sewn on for good though sometime soon...

DC are kicking it out of the park with their new titles now...

Marvel can only put out shyte at the moment...

MAKE MINE DC...
