''Joker'' is a 2008 one-shot graphic novel written by Brian Azzarello and illustrated by Lee Bermejo, focusing - [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin just like it says on the tin]] - on SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker, everyone's favourite MonsterClown. The story is done in a DarkerAndEdgier, FilmNoir style and is told by a naive young criminal named Jonny Frost who yearns to be a big man in Gotham. So when (for reasons nobody seems to know) SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker is released from Arkham Asylum and sets out to reclaim the city for himself, [[ViolationOfCommonSense Frost decides he wants in.]] [[HilarityEnsues Carnage Ensues]]! Along the way, they bump into the Riddler, Two-Face, the Penguin, Killer Croc, Comicbook/HarleyQuinn and [[Franchise/{{Batman}} the B-man himself]].

* {{Deconstruction}}: WordOfGod states that the series was meant to make the Joker scary again, after all the anti-heroic and idealized traits he'd acquired by fans.
** Specifically, the book came out soon after ''Film/TheDarkKnight'' had come out. For everyone who treated Ledger's Joker as a DracoInLeatherPants, this book stands as a harsh rebuke, reminding everyone that despite how "fun" or "cool" the Joker's chaos is, he's still evil and you absolutely should not idolize him.

* MoodSwinger: The comic goes to great length to show how dangerous it is to hang around a guy who go from homicidal rage to depression to cheery. One moment Joker is drinking with a henchman who organized a party for him, the second he is skinning him alive and stick a dollar on his ass.

* BreakTheHaughty: Jonny, a good way to see it is in the artwork where at the start he is always standing tall next to Joker, smoking a cigarette, pulling his collar,smugly smiling and all but short to flex at people when he enters the room. Near the end he looks scared, aimless and depressed.


Added DiffLines:

* RealityEnsues: Two-Face's goons are suddenly chasing Joker's gang and open fire at them, Jonny goes off road crashing the car with him and Joker inside in one page. Jonny even points out that he always thought he'll never go down without a fight but turns out no, someone bump your car and start shooting you with one second notice, you go down easy.
