S SPACE FOR OL’ ST. NICK!!! In this issue, the Joker spreads some Christmas spirit with his buddy, Robin.

I thought this issue was great. Being a huge fan of the Joker, it had everything I wanted. Humor, some suspense, and more humor. I can’t help but to root for Ol’ Jokes (thank god he’s not real). What do you think, Rudolph?

Tony Mourlot:I’m also a huge Joker fan and thought this issue was great. I love Dini’s writing. He has a great grasp on all the characters. The Joker in this issue was crazy but very calculating. I loved how he planted the car to give Robin a sense of hope. The scene at the fast food restaurant was probably my favorite moment of the book. I’ve never wanted to shoot a fast food employee, but there’s been times I would’ve liked to question their intelligence. My only complaint is Robin not recognizing the Joker before getting into the car. Tim’s a good detective and, to me, he would’ve recognized the voice and known better. Other than that, this issue was just about perfect. What did you think of the art Dancer?

John Lewis: That’s true about Robin recognizing Jokes’s voice but he might’ve been changing his voice or Robin might be thinking too much about getting away from the other criminials.

Art was great. Almost felt like Kramer was made for drawing Ol’ Nutso. What About you, Comet?

Tony Mourlot:Well Blitzen, I loved the art. Don Kramer did a great job of capturing the tension between The Joker and Robin. And you’re right, Kramer draws a damn near perfect laughing boy. He did a fantastic job with all the various facial expressions of The Joker. If The Joker was ever to get his own mini series Kramer would be the man to draw it.

After second thought, I think you’re right about Robin. He may have been so intent on escaping that he didn’t pay enough attention to the voice. Anything else to add Cupid?

John Lewis: Nope, Vixen.

Go here to discuss.
