Brian Azzarello brings out a side of the Joker that we all new was there, but no other writer dare bring it out. This side of the Joker is pill popping, drug addicted and very, very violent (he was violent anyway, but this is a new level). Not only is the Joker is portrayed differently, but other villains are brought into a frightening new light as well, such as Killer Croc, the Riddler, Two-Face, Harley Quinn and the Penguin. This is an immense credit to graphic novels, Azzarello is a comic genius, and Lee Bermejo's art really brings out the Clown Prince Of Crime's darkest side ever.
