The Joker’s enjoying the sunny, warm weather of Los Angeles so much that he’s decided to stay…and get involved in local politics! Kate Spencer’s fists might have something to say about that, though!

    Get Your Comic On - Dave Jones Mar 7, 2023

    A book that is starting to expand into a chilling tale as Joker's plans come to fruition. The excitement of what is to come is at an all time high, this series is definitely one not to be missed. Read Full Review

    The Joker is a character who many might think, and rightfully so, that he wouldn't be able to sustain his own solo title, but I'm happy to say that those readers would be proven wrong with this latest outing. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Mar 7, 2023

    Di Giandomenico delivers some beautifully detailed art that perfectly captures the frenetic, intense and insane circumstances of the story. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Mar 7, 2023

    The Joker: The Man Who Stopped Laughingcontinues to be a laugh riot of action, intrigue, and excellent Joker writing. The main story does feel like a long-winded way of showing how dangerous west coast Joker is before he heads back to Gotham, but you can't deny how entertaining it all can be. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Kendra Hale Mar 9, 2023

    While slower in pace than previous issue, The Joker: The Man Who Stopped Laughing #6 gives a break in the narrative that's devilishly dark and merciless in its twists. That, and it's also genuinely enjoyable to chew on too, as the situations are hilarious. I'm ready for the answers to start revealing themselves, and for the much awaited face-off. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Mar 7, 2023

    Rosenberg is juggling a lot of balls, but so far in the series none have hit the ground. This has been an unusual experience, which is fitting for The Joker, and its made for an enjoying read. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Mar 7, 2023

    The bedraggled Gotham Joker is out of commission, so this issue is devoted almost entirely to the LA Jokerand that helps kick this issue up a few notches. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - Dispatchdcu Mar 7, 2023

    The Joker: The Man Who Stopped Laughing #6 is a filler issue. Readers will get no advancement to the story and no big cliffhangers to really hold on to with excitement for the next installment. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Mar 8, 2023

    The Joker has had a lot of close-ups over the years. Compare him against any of the other Batman villains who have their own titles right now, and...he DOES come across as being the least intriguing by far. This shouldnt be the case. The idea of homicidal madness is truly horrifying on a very deep level, which could be a very fascinating thing to explore in a comic book format, but hes just not being seen from an angle that takes advantage of the unique madness that is the Joker.  Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Hannan Mouawad Mar 8, 2023

    The ending brings the appearance of Manhunter (who I personally haven't kept up with within the world of comics too closely) but does pique my interest for the next issue. The overall mystery of the whole storywhy are there two Jokers and what are their true intentionsfeels like it's been talked about for quite some time but hasn't unfolded rapidly. The story plays out in bits and pieces, and how it will all come together and resolve (for better or for worse) awaits to be seen. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Theresa Campagna Mar 7, 2023

    I have no idea where Joker: The Man Who Stopped Laughing is going and, at this point, I don't know what it's even supposed to be about. I feel that DC should just cancel this book and go back to using the Joker as a villain in various Batman books. That's where he works best. Not every popular DC character needs to have a solo book.Score: 2/10 Read Full Review

    Not a ton happens in this issue, but I really enjoy how Rosenberg writes Joker.

    Psycamorean pretty much nailed it in their review. I can understand some readers being upset that the plot doesn't really advance all that much here, however, this is possibly the funniest Joker has been in this series. Either this, or when Joker was talking with the sick kids in Issue 4. Rosenberg just writes Joker incredibly well, enough for me to continuously enjoy this series without even the biggest fan of the character. Plus, Di Giandomenico's art continues to be great in the main story. As for the backup, I do think it was an improvement over the past couple. One of my favorite lines from it had to be from the editor's note where Joker apparently tried to start the 2008 housing crisis in Real Estate Rapscallions #6. In fact, pretty m more

    The mystery of who the two Jokers are is getting a little tiring. The series seems to be going nowhere fast but I'm still reading it so I can't rate it too low.

    Rosenberg has a nice voice for Joker but this book is tiring.
