Greetings, Explorers! We return to Gotham to take a look at Batman: Three Jokers. Story by Geoff Johns, art by Jason Fabok. DC Comics published the book in 2020. Three different murders happened on the same night at the same time in Gotham. Therefore, with all signs pointing to the Joker, Batman deduces that there are not one, but three Jokers. Red Hood and Batgirl, both dealing with trauma they suffered as the Joker’s victims, join Batman in solving this mystery.
Dennis and Johnny (Frankie was at a Wayne Enterprises’ party) discuss what makes someone a good recruit to be a Joker. Next, they ponder why it’s OK to kill henchmen but not Supervillians. Finally, the look at how this book ties into the Batman: The Killing Joke and Batman: A Death in the Family. Additional topics include the similar plot twists shared by Metal Gear Solid V and Batman: Three Jokers; if this story qualifies as elevated fan fiction; Gaggy; if Jason Fabok is a Vulcan; and last, but not least, the storytelling and art of Batman: Three Jokers.
