The coming of Satan
himself could never be half as scary as the return of Joker to
Gotham. Heralded by ominous occurrences, the clown prince of crime
is back crueler and meaner than ever before, and on top of
everything, he is pissed off as well; dark times have indeed
arrived. Snyder makes of Joker's rampage inside the GCPD a horror
fest that gets even more disturbing when he reveals to Gordon how
close he has really been the past year.
towards the return of his nemesis is one of annoyance; he is
alarmed, of course, but he looks more inconvenienced than anything
else; whereas the rest of his allies -with the exception of Damian-
are pretty freaked out about it, which is the right way to feel.
It's possible that after the attack by the Court of Owls, the cape
crusader is confident he can take on anyone... big mistake. Il
Maestro Capullo delivers some of the spookiest pencils of his run in
the title, and this issue is my first official 10 ever!
