Our pal Seth Hahne, of GoodOKBad fame, came up with this 31 Days of Comics challenge, one of those things where each day of the month you're given a different category that you then make a choice of a comic to fill that category. We did it last year and I figured it would be a fun bit to do again, so here we are! Click here to see each of the categories so far!
We continue with Day 11, which is an Old Comic You Love.
Read on for my pick and then you can share yours!
Last year, I went with EC Comics' Judgment Day.
Today, I'll go with the introduction of the Joker in Batman #1 by Bill Finger, Bob Kane and Jerry Robinson.
Look at this introduction!!
That's stunning. This was a moody, evocative and thrilling first use of the Joker. It was no wonder that the editor of the comic said, "Yeah, no, you're not killing this guy off right away. This is lightning in a bottle right here."
