Joker: Killer Smile #1

By: Jeff Lemire, Andrea Sorrentino
Released: Oct 30, 2019

Everyone knows The Joker doesn't have the most promising history with psychotherapists. In fact, no one's even been able to diagnose him. But that doesn't matter to the confident, world-beating Dr. Ben Arnell; he's going to be the one to unravel this unknowable mind. There's no way The Joker could ever get through the therapeutic walls Ben has buil...

THE GOOD:

-Holy fuck, this was good.

-I mean, Andrea Sorrentino may be my favorite artist of all time. His work just appeals to me so much. I can't really put my finger on it, but it just scratches that itch unlike anything else.

-Jeff Lemire's dialogue is fantastic here. I'm currently reading some of his older stories, and it's clear that he has really grown as more

Almost missed this because of the stupid logo-free cover. I am really not digging the Year of the Villain stuff at all, and I think BMB would have preferred to skip it as well. The stuff with the Invisible Mafia and Leviathan is a lot more interesting, anyway.

But what kills the issue is the usual subpar work from JRJr, who hasn't drawn a comic I like since the 80s. Why did DC poach h more

"Invisible War" part one! It's one of the biggest creator reunions in years as writer Brian Michael Bendis and artist John Romita Jr. join forces for the first time since their blockbuster turns on Avengers and Avengers Vs.

This was a great follow up to the really exciting first issue. As a Kitty / Kate Pryde fan, I really like the new status quo for her and her merry band of pirates. We are still in setup phase with this issue but it continues to be a great setup. My only complaint would be that Lolli's art feels a little strained by the very quick schedule this book is under. Otherwise, I'm happy to have this X-boo more

First my biases: I'm a sucker for Father / Daughter bonds (I got emotional at the end of Stranger Things Season 3 and I hate that show) and this was my first Ice Cream Man.

With that mind, this was a perfect one shot comic for me and I think others without my biases might love it too. It had likable characters, good pacing, art that suits the story and tone, and most important: somethi more

Amazing introduction to Kitty Pryde’s new status quo. She has a very unique problem that really makes you feel for her. The way she chooses to work through that problem is both highly entertaining and a great example of why Kitty Pryde is an all-time great X-Man. Supporting cast is also top notch, definitely the team I’m most excited about in Dawn of X. Text pages that Hickman has been using a more

I love it when we get to takes a break from Batman and get follow the man behind the mask, This issue may be mainly just here for set up but it has great feel to it. The action set piece is interesting. My only problem is that the cover promises Mr. Freeze but he is only in the last page. However this doesn't ruin the excellent story that promises an even better follow up.

Very cool issue.

Don't let the cover fool you, Mr. Freeze is barely in this issue at all and instead, we got Deadshot who's on a mission that we know nothing about right now.

Most of the issue is Bruce doing work for Wayne Enterprises, which is something we barely see these days if at all. Nonetheless, it was nice to see.

The stuff with Naomi was a blast. She is such a fun character. Her banter with Superman and Batman was well written. When BMB wants, he can write good dialogue.

Then we're back to the Red Cloud/Levithan business. Red Cloud got a serious upgrade form Apex Lex. The Man of Steel is in trouble.
