    There is so much going on in this issue it would feel overwhelming in lesser hands, but instead it's probably the best Bat-book at the moment. Read Full Review

    Joker #7 combines the horror, crime, and action genres and stirs them into a delicious mix of new and classic characters to create an irresistible fictional feast. This happens basically every single month, and if youre not reading The Joker, youre absolutely missing out. Read Full Review

    Tynion and March have a great story going here and it's one that even fans who aren't particularly enamored with the Dark Knight or his arch-rival should give a look. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Scott Waldyn Sep 14, 2021

    The Joker #7 adds new players, a bit of romance, and more layers to the globe-spanning conspiracy that Jim Gordon (and team) must solve, and it does it in a way that's thrilling, smart, and subtle. Read Full Review

    The Joker continues to be a nice slow burn comic giving a welcome spotlight to Jim and Barbara Gordon and some underutilized members of the Bat Family. Read Full Review

    While both stories in this issue aren't bad, some parts of each just seem to come off as a tad boring in the long run, even though I'm still interested in what they're talking about. Thankfully though, the art in both sections is great and the Batgirls part of our main Joker story was a real highlight for me as it looks like we're finally doing something interesting with the Court of Owls again.

    Dark Knight News - Kevin M. Gallagher, Jr Sep 20, 2021

    The Joker #7 doesn't capitalize on the success of last month's issue and makes very little forward progress. It does feel like an issue you'll likely need to read to stay current with the story, but the fact that it's missing the titular character is mind-blowing. Read Full Review
