DC Comic’s release of “Three Jokers” is a massive hit. The first issue release of this comic book series is bound to have a second and third printing as issues are flying off local comic book shop shelves. Released on DC Comic’s mature content line, Black Label, Three Jokers is not just violent for violence’s sake. It is shaping up to be an incredibly dark morality tale. Readers who finished the first issue will find themselves questioning whether two classic DC characters have finally lost their way.
The question Three Jokers immediately asks is, “What happens if our comic heroes finally crack under the suffering and violent crimes of the Joker?”
For those that pondering this question, authors have written academic papers on the subject, and can be found through our resources.
