@monkeyface15: The current issue with Joker (I believe you mean this one?)
If so, you probably need to read the issue before this one, where the story arc began and I would recommend just reading the whole run cause it's awesome!

Scott Snyder's awesome Detective Comics run starts with Detective Comics #871.

If you can, start reading from #871. But if you just want to read the current arc, start off with #879 I believe. The issue literally gave me chills. The lettering for The Joker was perfect, and the shading gave it even more of a creepy effect. Issue #880 is just as good, and the confrontation between Batman and The Joker was extremely entertaining. Scott Snyder's run on Detective Comics is great, I love what he did with Dick under the cowl. I am excited to see his run on Batman. Detective Comics, in my opinion, is the best comic on the shelves now, or at least the best DC comic.
