This reminded me a lot of Joker’s Year of the Villain issue toward the end. It’s interesting to see how people behave once Joker gets inside their head.
Especially after reading Harleen, Joker seems even more frightening just due to his ability to manipulate people. Add on top of that the fact that he’s a complete and total brutal psycho and it’s terrifying!!!
I really liked the whole Children’s Book vibe across all three books… It would be pretty neat to see the actual book at some point …just the book. I kind of laughed at it referring to Batman as “Mr. Pouts.” Even though this isn’t really a book to laugh at.
Joker handing the kid the balloon at the end and this on the inside of the back cover has me really excited for May:
With Wonder Woman: Dead Earth 2 and then this book, this week’s Black Label books really remind me why like Black Label so much!!! I enjoy the fun silly books and there are some Heroes I can have fun with but I just appreciate the gritty realism of these Black Label books. Sometimes the woman is manipulated by the predator…sometimes you just can’t bear to watch people destroy things any more…sometimes you go a little crazy. To me, these Black Label books are just more real!
