The Killing Joker

The camera shot I took with this is not good, however it is the Joker and I had to upload :D

A commission by a friend. Obviously this I copied from the excellent graphic novel 'The Killing Joke'. Beautiful artwork in there. Recommended.

I love the joke he tells at the very end, with the two insane prison inmates. That was the highlight of the entire comic. :)

Brilliant! ^^ I <3 Killing Joke Joker, though I've only seen pictures of him..D:
Hopefully I'll get the Killing Joke soon...I reeeeaaalllyyy wanna read it!

It's a really good book. I absolutely adore the art in it (Brian Bolland is the illustrator, if I remember correctly). There's a good psychological match between Batman and Joker.

Man. I miss this comic. Gonna borrow one from my uncle once he finds it. I agree, the artwork is AMAZING there. And you did a great job on this piece. How I love the comic Jokers. XD

I managed to find (and purchase!) the LAST COPY of the anniversary edition of "The Killing Joke" at the bookstore where I work (yay discount!). It has rocked my pants off every time I read it. You've done a fantastic job of capturing the feel and tone of the original drawing- only, where's the blood?

:b i've tried to find "the Killing Joke" but i just cant seem to find it anywhere :P
sullen-skrewt's avatar
Are you talking about the graphic novel, or a the ultimate joke that will slay people? :)
MintyFreshNoodleBox's avatar
:XD: the graphic novel...but an ultimate joke that would have everyone and anyone laughing to death would also be a interesting discovery :XD:

but amazon has everything shiny and wonderful so i'll have a goosey on there :XD: (i might also find that joke...)

Hahah, it's a fantastic novel. The artwork is delicious. There's an anniversary edition out which has some colour change in it that might be worth looking at.

I would ruin the ultimate joke by forgetting the punchline...I'm always doing that.

three men walk into a bar and....uhmmm....wait a sec....:XD:

OMG! That is such a good replica from the picture in the graphic novel (which is my fav, btw). This is just fantastic!

Thank you! It's one of my favourites too. I also love Arkham Asylum and am currently trying to get the anniversary edition of the Killing Joke in which Bolland has had a hand in colouring.

Wow! I got the new version of this for my birthday earlier this month (I also have the original...but that stays packed away!) and this is perfect. Go you, you Joker phenom!
