Hello and Welcome back to the Batman Book Club!
Now, I know what you’re thinking: didn’t you just do a thread like this yesterday? Well, yes, but here’s why.
For those who don’t know, when the DCU Community was down for this shiny new make-over, a load of us kind of continued the book clubs via a personal Discord (which if you want to join you can here). So during that time, I posted this for the book club on that Discord. But now that the community is back, I figure that all the weeks should be on here.
So because of that, there is no time limit or anything like that. If you want to read this instead of the current week, cool. If you are already done and want some more Joker in your life, cool. If you started during the downtime and intend to finish it – I’m looking at you, @BatJamags – cool.
So with all that done, here’s the previous post, straight from the Discord:
Week Two of World of LAUGHS Begins! This week, we’re going to venture back to a well known title for this club in Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight #65-68, “Going Sane,” written by J.M. DeMatteis and drawn by Joe Staton. He’s finally done it – The Joker has defeated and killed his arch-nemesis, The Batman. All of his plans and dreams have come to this, and now he has to ask: What happens next? Share your thoughts about the story in the Batcave!
And since this arc is a little shorter than normal with four parts, let’s add a little extra credit. For some more stories of Joker colliding with characters other than the Dark Knight, let’s see how the Dominoed Daredoll fares against him for the first time in the 1997 Batman: Batgirl one-shot by Kelley Puckett and drawn by Matt Haley.
