The Joker

The Joker

The Joker, published in hard and soft cover editions in 2011 is the third book that McD Workshop’s Chris McDonnell designed for Universe and DC Comics. Written by Daniel Wallace, edited by Robb Pearlman and Steve Korté, with an introduction by Mark Hamill, this book provides a look at the Joker’s sordid history through bloody piles of art and comics; a similar approach to the Wonder Woman book that Chris designed previously.
