The mystery of “WHO KILLED THE RIDDLER” heats up as Joker, now incarcerated and under interrogation by Commissioner Jim Gordon, retells his version of events, starting with the victim himself on the hunt for an all-powerful weapon. How did the other Gotham villains get involved, and why? What does this weapon do, and why does Riddler want it? Who had skin in the game, and who could stand to lose everything? It’s a whodunit spiraling out of control, retold by the world’s most unreliable narrator. See if you can spot the clues and solve the puzzle!

    This Matthew Rosenberg adventure is not what it seems. When I read and re-read the comic, I think we will eventually see clues all in Joker's accounts to James Gordon that point to the actual killer (if there is an actual murder). On the surface, when you read it, it is far fetched. But taken out of the context of the current timeline, this "puzzle" continues to be worth your time and energy to try to solve!

    The Joker Presents: A Puzzlebox #2 continues to entertain. The second of a seven part series and the mystery and intrigue continue to enthrall. Rosenberg has set his stall out well and I'm loving the twists and turns of this book. I have to keep re-reading to try and pick up the clues to see where it's leading. The addition of Hixson to the art team certainly brings a difference to the book. And not an unwelcome one. Another must pick-up for Joker fans. Read Full Review

    It's an entertaining book, but it's just not as good as #1. The art is solid, but the two featured artists' different styles clash a little bit. I also find that the issue could've been structured and paced better, because now it just kind of peters out toward the end. That said, the first half of this issue is really cool and the mystery of the puzzle box keeps me hooked, so I still recommend this one! Read Full Review
