Review by wethewatched
This is an excellent all-around collection of Joker stories. As a big Batman fan I've read a lot of the old stories, so I had worried going in that there wouldn't be much new here. To my pleasant surprise, DC Comics has selected many great comics that I've not seen in previous greatest hits collections.<br/><br/>With a few selections from each decade, it's really interesting to see how the Joker has changed over time -- from a psychopathic killer to a clown thief and back again, based largely on society's tolerance for violence at that particular time in history.<br/><br/>I'm also happy to say that the book ends with two really strong stories from Paul Dini and Scott Snyder, showing that this character has not only held up for 75 years, but he's actually getting better and better.
