The cast of guests include Two-Face, The Creeper, Green Arrow and Black Canary (as Dinah Lance), and Catwoman in her classic purple evening gown costume with green cape. The plots are simple and pretty see through, but taken in context of when it was created, it is a delicious treat to nostalgia and a good FUN read. Even though the Joker is still a murderer, we don't experience it in the manner we do in modern comics.
I really enjoy this book (and the Bronze Age Universe in general) and highly recommend this book to fans who desire to have an enjoyable, suspension of reality, comic book reading experience.
Unfortunately,the Comics Code Authority was still enforced at the time,insisting that each story end with the Joker once again apprehended and locked up in Arkham Asylum,the high-security where most of Batman's rogues gallery are incarcerated (and also seem to escape from with regularity).Due to this limitation,the series never found an audience,and was cancelled after its ninth issue...which means readers never got to see the Joker/Justice League clash that was to follow in issue #10.
Nonetheless,this is a fascinating,rarely-seen chapter in the history of the Clown Prince Of Crime,and this volume collects all nine issues,featuring artwork from the likes of Irv Novick,Dick Giordano,Jose' Luis Garcia-Lopez and many more.This book will definitely satisfy all lovers of classic superhero comics.
As a physical product, this is wonderful. This is as good as it can be done. I prefer older reprints to be on white newsprint instead of glossy paper because it's closer to how the original issues looked. Great job on the printing and reproduction.
The art is great 70s DC art. I love Irv Novick's art.
The stories are fun, but just okay. Different writers were assigned to the series and they're all one-parters, so there's no overarching storyline. Plus, DC was not really committed to telling the villains' side of things. The Joker had to come out looking better than his adversaries, which kept the Joker from being his truly maniacal self.
Still, definitely worth buying and reading!
