    This title has a breezy read feel, but with a large mystery at play, itd be nice to see Rosenberg start delivering some answers even if new ones arrive to take their place. Read Full Review

  • 8.0 - Jenna Anderson May 3, 2023

    The novelty of seeing the Clown Prince of Crime go toe-to-toe with (and annoy) the opponents of these fights is definitely the draw, as Matthew Rosenberg's script keeps everything breezy, providing Carmine di Giandomenico's art space to add some dynamic fluidity. Read Full Review

    I'm really looking forward to seeing where this whirlwind story is leading. We already had a false meeting of two Jokers, but there's something else bubbling under the surface and it's high time the pieces came together. Joker: The Man Who Stopped Laughing #8 gives us some of the closure we needed, though I doubt this is the last we see of Kate Spencer. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Hannan Mouawad May 3, 2023

    This issue left me actually more interested in the upcoming issue, all for the fact that there might just be a climatic encounter between all the Jokers and between the members of the Bat-Family and their chaotic-neutral second eldest. Let the good times roll. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff May 9, 2023

    The series continues to make its mark in squalor, madness, and darkness. Its a milieu that has been explored pretty extensively over the decades on the comics page...particularly in those comics set in Gotham City. So its not exactly new ground, but it IS still a bit novel to hang out with the face of madness for a few more pages. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Theresa Campagna May 2, 2023

    Joker: the Man Who Stopped Laughing still isn't a good book, despite the main character being a little more entertaining in this chapter. Readers seem to buy anything with the character's name on it, however. Because of this, you can expect the series to continue, just as it has been.5/10 Read Full Review
