    The Joker: The Man Who Stopped Laughing #2 is mysterious, clever, wild, and inventive all at once. The addition of a certain hero definitely spices up this issue and all while Rosenberg complicates this whos who into something a bit deeper. Readers, Im hooked! This is the concept of Batman: Three Jokers but with a certain unexpected and rather unique wrinkle. Now, I love a good mystery, even if that mystery involves a psychotic villain. And somehow, Rosenberg still finds a way to get the reader to feel for the Joker. The Joker! An insane, sadistic, killer! If thats not top-notch writing I dont know what is. Readers, its still early on into this series meaning you can probably still get your hands on issue one. Head to your local comic shop, or click the link right HERE, and snag both issues of The Joker: The Man Who Stopped Laughing right now. You can thank me later. Let me know what you think, have a great week, and God Bless! Read Full Review

    I liked the first issue, but The Joker: The Man Who Stopped Laughing #2 makes a case for saying something important about Joker. There's a mystery worth exploring while Rosenberg plays with dialogue in entertaining and invigorating ways. Add in a backup with one of the funniest eulogies you'll read in comics, and you have a must-read issue. Read Full Review

    There's too many Batman theme books out from DC these days, but this title has been a pleasant surprise and definitely worth seeing it play out. Read Full Review

    A reunion with Harley goes in a very different direction than I was expecting, and this issue drives home just what a hard time Joker will have clawing his way back to the top. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Theresa Campagna Nov 1, 2022

    For the main storyline of The Joker: The Man Who Stopped Laughing, I still feel pretty lukewarm. Rosenberg is proving himself to be a good choice for the writing of the Joker as an individual character, but we're really not being presented with anything we haven't seen before. I hope we get more clues in the next issue that make this run more engaging, but if not, perhaps Rosenberg will continue to entertain in the back-up stories. Read Full Review
