Joker is pregnant in DC’s new Batman comic

It’s hard to write a story where the Joker is the main character. This is the case with many villains, but the Prince of Crime’s traditional stream of consciousness approach to crime doesn’t really help.

I mean, sure enough, James Tynion (and associates) Joker It’s a great comic book series – but that’s largely because it’s a secret James Gordon story where he hunts down the Joker, rather than a straight Joker story. However, Matthew Rosenberg (Where is the furthest from here?) and Carmine Di Giandomenico (Batman: Knight) trying to do it: The Joker: The Man Who Stopped Laughing really just a book about the Joker.

And it comes with some real stream of consciousness backing stories, drawn by Francesco Francavilla (Joker) in there, well. YES. Joker seems to be pregnant for a page or two.

What else is happening in the pages of our favorite comics? We will tell you. Welcome to Monday Funnies, Polygon’s weekly list of the books our comics editors loved over the past week. It’s part social pages about superhero lives, part read recommendations, part ‘check out this amazing piece of art’. There may be some spoilers. There may not be enough context. But there will be great comics. (And if you missed the final edition, read this.)

Now, it turns out that what really happened was that he swallowed a pile of mud at the same time as Zatanna was cursing him and something magical might have happened and he created a copy anyway. Joker’s little mud star – and if that sounds silly, that’s a lot of points.

Rosenberg told the press that The man stopped laughingthe back stories are his tribute to the silver age, an era where superhero comics have a little dada, with more modern, violent incarnations of the character courtesy of creators like Alan Moore, Brian Bolland, Scott Snyder, and Greg Capullo. And indeed, in his backups with Francavilla, there are a lot of dismembered bodies, empty executions and machine gun carnage of gorillas, and it all feels like a dream. complete mpreg fever.

“You have passed through the Last Door.  A portal of my own making,” explains Scarlet Witch as she serves tea to her guests.  “It only appears to those in the most urgent need.  Those who feel they have no one left,” in Scarlet Witch #1.

Writer Steve Orlando sometimes favors continuous deep dives and frenetic tempos that overwhelm me, but his first edition of red witch is a lovely fable. If the series continues to frame Wanda dealing with the problems of each new character who walks through her magical final resort door, then I could find myself enjoying more of the adventure comic’s other problems. this fun, multi-episode episode.

Superman Myth got a twist this new year, by giving Superman a secret identity once again. Lex Luthor made some conspiracies with a psychic and now, except for Superman’s closest friends and family, no one knows that Superman and Clark Kent are the same person and if you try to tell they could have a major stroke.

Honestly, I’d rather hang around in the “everyone knows Superman is one of the world’s most trusted investigative journalists” position longer, but I have to admit that Luthor’s reasoning for that is. – “If the world needs Superman, then I’ll give them the best version I can… The world needs to believe you’re a god. That you are above them, not one of them” – it was a shot straight to the bow of The last decade of Superman movies I think I feel my hair move.

But “Susana,” you say, “this image has nothing to do with that,” and you are right. It’s just that this Nick Dragotta page has damn rules and everyone should see it.

Iron Man explains that the plan to hire Skrull to impersonate him and do superhero work was inspired by Squirrel Girl.  “I took Doreen's advice and accomplished more than anyone could imagine,” in Secret Invasion #3.

Dead Boy Detectives — they are two ghost boys from different eras, they solve crimes and run away from Death — is my favorite movie Sand sellers spinoff. Like most of the Sandman spinoffs, the DBD series don’t usually last very long, but I expect this one to last millions of years because I love and cherish How writer Pornsak Pichetshote and artist Jeff Stokely staged this moment when our familiar child detectives meet a few Thai ghost children.

History of Wonder Woman: The Amazons has finally come to a conclusion, which means I can officially say for the first time that its collectible edition will be one of Polygon’s best comics of 2023.
