"The Killing Joke" [Special Re-Release]
With the release of Joker, we decided to share one of our earliest episodes with you all once more! Join us for the third-ever recording we did: The Killing Joke! An Eisner Award winning graphic novel by Alan Moore and Brian Bolland, this is one of the most famous and impacting Batman/Joker stories. The Killing Joke brings the Caped Crusader and the Clown Prince of Crime to new heights, lows, and changes the trajectory of one major character for years to come. Our guest and close friend, Matt Ikner, helps lend his perspective and humor to this episode's analysis.
We have bid a limited-ado to our wonderful co-host, Mike. Luckily he is not truly gone: Mike will be contributing blogs and popping in for some episodes when available, but for the next few months Jacks of Trades will continue under a new format with Greg, Davis, and Dezi at the helm.
Warning: We will be reviewing the book in excruciating detail. If you have not read it and want to, please read the book (and/or check out a previous episode) before listening to this episode. If you want to know what happens without reading it, then let it ride!
