This short series was originally published in the 70's. I believe it was cancelled when DC nearly toppled over from the sheer volume of titles they had out back then. It seemed everyone in the DC Universe had their own comic. So, a load were cancelled, this one included. Only nine issues were ever done and now nearly forty years later they are re-issued here for old collectors like me on a nostalgia kick or for brand new readers. These do not represent the Joker of the present, back in the 70's he was a slightly less brutal but still maniacal Joker. These stories feature Green Arrow, The Creeper, The Scarecrow and Catwoman and even Sherlock Holmes himself! This is a collection well worth having.

Released in the mid 70s I remember buying the individual comics, as an avid Batman and Joker fan of 9 years old. Beautifully reprinted as one book, the 9 capers of the 70s Joker are brought back life. He may be fairly tame by today's standards, but the evil streak is present I.e tipping a dead body into a furnace, squirting acid into faces etc. don't be put off the artwork is superb, and a unique insight into the evolution of Batmans greatest nemesis.

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 Stars of Fun 21 Dec. 2013
By Jan Tjeerd - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I'm very glad DC found, restored, and collected this series. While much comparison of this Joker is made to the current Joker or incarnations inbetween, I think they miss the good Bronze Age era in which this took place. This series of 9 issues showcases the development of the Joker up to this point and how the DC Universe existed at that time. Having read DC at this time, I find this a fun and refreshing re-visit to the character and the Bronze Age DCU.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Okay,it was a short-lived series,but still.....! 21 Mar. 2014
By Mark C. Scerpella - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Before he rose from simply being the archenemy of Batman to becoming one of the most formidable villains in the universe of DC comics,the Joker was given his own comic in 1975 (In fact,I believe he's still the only lone comic book supervillain to achieve this). With the Caped Crusader notably absent from its pages,it told the monthly adventures of the Clown Prince Of Crime going about his trademark criminal schemes,often crossing paths with another DC villain,one of their many masked heroes,and...in one particular issue...a stage actor who somehow came to believe he was Sherlock Holmes.This is the "Bronze Age" Joker,after being given his insanity and murderous edge by the likes of Dennis O'Neal and Neal Adams the year before,but still retaining the outrageousness of a clown/practical joker.
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic 70's Joker 16 Feb. 2014
By DEADMAN1313 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I love this book, some of the people writing some of these reviews are obviously not comic fans, or they are just picking up new comics and or are just jumping on the batman bandwagon. This collection is from the joker mini series from the late 70's. Yes some o it may not be as dark as people like, but he does kill two people I'm here( unlike another review saying he kills no one in this collection). This is a nice read and to me it's classic Joker, the purple suit and just being the joker. This series I'm pretty sure came out after the Joker could start offing people again in comics after the comics code was a little more lienient. If your a Joker fan or just like reading old comics this is worth picking up,

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for Bat-fans! 19 Jan. 2014
By W. Daniel Preece - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I love this era of Batman comics! And I love reading about villains!

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!

Then- as now- we all sit open mouthed in horror about the weird and dangerous things the Joker finds funny. Read it. Be amazed- by the art, the different portrayals of the character- but most of all by the twisted wrong things the Joker finds funny. Don't worry, it's only fiction.
