Who's work do you think The Joker looks the best in?

@Sheep-Kill: Agree.
But I did like how he looked in "Joker"...though I hated how that book was written. He also looked pretty awesome in Hush. That first time you see him above Thomas Elliot's "body" just really creeps me out. Sam Keith does some interesting work on him from time to time too, idk I like it when people do fresh takes on the character from time to time too...

I have to say I'm really enjoying Frazer Irving’s Joker.  I mean just look at this:

I'm not sure if he's actually drawn Joker, but I'm interested in seeing Leonardo Manco's Joker

While everyone will list off Lee Bermejo, Frazier Irving, Tony Daniels, Alex Ross, etc etc etc all day long...and none of you are necessarily wrong at all for that...I personally love Doug Mahnke's visage of The Joker most.  There is something about the detail in it that makes it almost simplistic.  The line work is incredibly crisp, leaving the viewer to notice the features of Joker's face more than overcompensating any form of sadism and insanity by adding a ton of layer and depth to it.

Brian Bolland.

Alex Ross. 
 

 
 
Otherwise, I'd say Bruce Timm

I love Irving's Joker in the latest arc.Also i like the way Ross drawns Joker. It reminds me of Jack Nicholson.

@junkmasterzero: What is that from?

@Zomboid: Detective 880.

Jock's version of Joker as pretty amazing might be a bit of of an understatement.

@junkmasterzero: I'm sorry, I should've specified... I meant the Frazer Irving one.

#24 Posted by junkmasterzero (257 posts) - - Show Bio
