In the thumbnail, I thought the Riddler was that creepy doctor dude from Nightmare Before Xmas.
This is so dope, awesome work. I love the BTAS influence in your twoface!

These are really great. The style is unique and you can feel their personalities just by the facial expressions.
Love this kinda style. 10/10 would read a book with this art
Classic spidey villain right there!
Man, those old ads in comics were the best.
Will they change him back before he goes to prison? If not will he need food and or have to hse the restroom?
I loved these as a kid! Extra comic reading value!
I also loved how Spidey doesn't do a goddamned thing. You could easily swap him out with any hero. The lack of punctuation also makes it slightly surreal
Hostess ads are canon. I won't be persuaded otherwise.
I LOVE THE GOLDEN SPONGE CAKE, CREAMED FILLING.
Would love to see some of these goofy villains in the MCU. Just an absolute madman who thinks he can turn people into chairs. Lol!
It’s so absurd it’s golden.
Ah, the classic Hostess ® adds.
I think the ads were successful, I remember loving those randoms as a kid... and loving Twinkie’s.
Getting a John Wayne Gacy vibe.
If anything sells me on this movie, it's this actor.
This actually makes me really uncomfortable... and I mean that in the best way possible.
Already better than the DCEU design. It looks a little more clownish than usual, but still very ugly and Jokery.
that looks SO MUCH better than I thought it would
I'm sure this portrayal of the Joker will be great but I don't get why this movie exists.
This might give me nightmares, and that puts a smile on my face. Getting so excited for this, even though it is still a ways off.
If I saw this leering at me from the corner of a dark room i'd just about shit myself to death, so good job on that front - it's piqued my curiosity in a film I gave negative quantities of fucks about prior to this.
Is this his joker persona though? Or is this just him in clown makeup? I feel like this isn’t the final product of what his joker will be.
Parents of reddit, your S/O brings this clown to your child’s birthday party What do you do?
Am I the only one who is unimpressed here?
Don't get me wrong, I think Phoenix is a stellar actor, but I've always felt part of Joker's allure is he doesn't really have an origin story. He just is.
I dunno. I'm just not feelin' it. Yet.
Looks like the mask that Heath Ledger’s Joker wore at the beginning of The Dark Knight during the heist scene
I like it! It looks very shitty, but in a good way. I feel like even Ledger's Joker had a bit too much polish on his makeup at times, like in the mob meeting. This literally just looks like it was hastily done in a mirror in 5 minutes or less.
Here's a side-by-side comparison of the first pic and the latest from today. http://imgur.com/gallery/qyPhJup
Edit: For some of those asking, here's all four pics I have separate.http://imgur.com/gallery/4uQdaTP
Is this official DCCU?
"You wanna know how I got these scars?"
"A congenital birth defect fixed with a simple surgery?"
First legitimately terrifying Joker. Fight me.
This character is not a guy I wanna share any space with. Genuinely creepy. I hope the rest of this project goes well. I don't know why we need a Joker movie but at this point with the DCCU imploding, a gem or two formed in the pressure would be cool.
Makes me wonder how long WB is going to chase Marvel. Surely they must know by now that they don't need to and shouldn't try. Just give us standalone projects with good stories and talented people who care about the characters. I would rather this be a really good Joker movie that doesn't connect to anything than watch another failed reboot/kickstart.
Looks better than Leto but that's not saying much...
looks cool. I don’t want this to be a “comic-book/superhero” movie. I wanna see a gritty crime-drama about Joaquin Phoenix losing his mind and turning into a killer clown.
I'd be more interested in this if it wasn't supposed to be the Joker.
This is gonna be good, bet your bottom...
This is freaking me out way too much.
I know it's not supposed to a part of the DCCU, but I would love to see Phoenix's older, grizzled, creepy-as-fuck Joker go against Affleck's older, grizzled, tired-of-this-shit Batman.
Like a clown serial killer.
Ireally like it. And the transition between the smile to the mad evil face is just awesome!
So this is or isn't in the DCEU? I've read both.
They're going full creepy ice cream cone clown box art with it. Kind of reminds me of sweet tooth from twisted metal.
I like it!
So this is test footage and not the real makeup I’ve gathered. If they incorporate this into his pre-Joker life, failed clown instead of comedian, I’d support it. The hair, if kept, reminds me of a cleaner looking Ledger and honestly is all you really need to do.
I have way more confidence in this film than I should but you can Thank Suicide Squad for setting the bar so damn low.
If anyone can pull off the joker, it’s Joaquin
I painted him up a little to make him look more jokery
I'm watching this movie regardless of it's ties to DC comics.
This should probably go in r/unpopularopinion but I think this performance will rival that of the late great Heath Ledger.
This makeup style looks more like Ronald McDonald than The Joker. Hopefully this isn't the final design.
EDIT: Compare the two: high "eyebrows", red on the tip of the nose, and red around the mouth that ends in the middle of the chin.
Not feeling the red nose tbh
Looks like Bill Murray.
He looks less serial killer creepy and more candy with a van creepy.
Looks like Gotye in clown makeup
its creepy, i like it. I like it alot better than what i saw with Lettos joker.
Looks like a carny
Bottom Right is terrifying
Yes! Stoned joker. He looks like he’s trying to not smile, but like in a I can’t help it and I’ll fucking kill you kind of way.
He looks like he really enjoys the moment. Very present but far away at the same time.
It's all a bit John Wayne Gacy. I hope this isn't the actual look.
I want to be excited, but DC's been nothing but letdown after letdown as far as movies go.
I have absolutely zero reason to expect this will be any different.
Wait wait wait...joaquin is playing the joker? what really?! thats amazing
Im so fucking excited, HOLY FUCK!
I really like it.
Joaquin Phoenix is a phenomenal actor! I have no doubt he will nail this role! Can’t wait
Give me some Bianca Del Rio and I’m sold.
I like this. I really hope they start focusing on creating really fantastic solo movies rather than an entire universe.
A little bit of Drake meme in this
What's the premise of this movie?
I don't really like the red nose
I’ll wait for a trailer before really letting myself develop much of an opinion
I thought it was Tommy Lee Jones for a second.
Looks like Caesar Romero
Those red eyebrows are too much imo
This is such a good design for the character. After The Dark Knight, I wasn’t sure we’d ever see a cinematic version of the Joker that felt as unique, but I love this design.
I really hope this movie is good, and I hope that it leads to Warner Bros. releasing more standalone superhero films rather than trying to ape Marvel Studios’ shared universe idea.
Can anyone reasonably explain the fascination that WB has with The Joker? He may legit be the most overexposed Comic book intellectual property in cinema. You can justify a lot of crossover with other characters but this is yet another iteration and I reforestation that no one asked for.
In my head, I'm hearing the Joker's creepy piano theme from Telltale's Batman. This is going to be an interesting movie for sure!
It's a no from me.
Am I the only one here who sees Bill Murray?
This looks like a joke, no pun intended! Well who can top the joker in the dark knight trilogy... I hope it turn out okay!
Looks like a younger Tommy Lee Jones.
This could have been any random picture of any random clown and would have gotten this exact same response.
I’m sorry but that looks like shit. I’ve seen teenagers dressed up in better looking Joker concept costumes for Halloween.
Is this real or photoshop?
I like Joaquin Phoenix. He’s a creepy dude.
Okay, how the fuck do you pronounce his first name?
Like I can't even say it in my head correctly.
Edit: Apparently the J is silent, and it just kind of sounds like "Yah-queen". I feel so bad for his old teachers.
Not feeling it. But I'm definitely feeling Joaquin. So I'm still hopeful.
Not a big fan of the blue or the paint on the nose but hey I doubted Heath Ledger and he’s my favorite movie character of all time (for superhero films). I’ll give him a shot.
I really don't want another long haired Joker.
Not Heath Ledger.3/10
I don't want to see Batman's penis.
He looks so goddamn creepy. I was uninterested in the movie when it was announced, but everything I’ve seen of it so far has made me really excited for the finished product
Kinda off topic but I tried talking with the suicide hotline over chat.
I was put in a line. There were 40 people in front of me.
I settled for the phone.
Such a great biting satire comic. I loved how “Yabba-Dabba-Doo!” was the mantra of all the veterans in the war to make them feel better.
I recommend this Flintstones series to all.
Did you guys know, that Flintstones got 3 Eisner nominations.
Flinstones was damn good.
This was such a good comic; Read it if you haven't already.
I love this series
Still sad a deluxe edition never came out.
If they ever make another Flintstones movie I hope it will be inspired by this comic book.
One of the funniest bits I have ever seen in a comic. I laughed out loud on a full train reading it.
Worst comic ive ever read
Were any of the other DC/Hanna Barbera comics worth picking up?
Specifically, the Scooby Doo and Jetsons ones?
In case you're wondering, yes, that is a note in a prequel comic saying to read the 3rd issue of a miniseries that hasn't even started yet.
I was so confused when I read that.
I kind of like that, though. Like, instead of referencing a book you can read, it just references something that hasn't happened yet. Or, even better, the ones that reference books that don't exist. "What do you mean, Spider-Man vs. the Sinister Six Thousand #2 doesn't exist?"
I caught this detail the other day, didn't see anyone mention it and thought it warranted a post.
Nice little unspoken and mundane sitcom humor, to match the occasional tone of the book...
He’s evil. I wouldn’t expect anything less.
This is stealing forty cakes levels of villainy.
Yeah, but is he sitting on a couch while double-dipping?
Anti-Life is in bad salsa dip
Have to admit, the offbeat sense of humor is working against the book for me now. As the stakes raise, I find this kind of trite joke to undermine the feel I am enjoying.
To each his own.
For anyone still wondering about Darkseid vs Thanos... well, there's your answer. Thanos would have just taken half the dip. Darkseid dips whenever he wants.
On one hand, this is hilarious in isolation.
On the other hand, this was part of the reinvention of Cat Grant from a nice single mom who happens to have lots of sex into a walking "lol, look at this dumb slut" joke, which... Yeah. I mean, how do you make JOHN BYRNE look classy in comparison?
Clark boutta bust a super nut
I really liked this artist's depiction of Clark, kind of miss it. Who drew this again?
I thought this was going to be some sort of click-bait gotcha. Nope.
Bruce and Dick
is this the first appearance of batman's dick?
BUY BUY BUY
Bruce hangs dong? Very thunder gun.
Wow. I wonder if it was intentional or if someone just overlooked it before printing.
Kinda weird that they censored it in the digital version. I mean it’s not like I have any particular desire to see it, it’s just weird that I didn’t buy the same comic as everyone else. I feel like what goes on the stands in the comic shop should be what goes into my comiXology library, always.
I misread the title. Not what I expected...
So, the order of today is the Little Bat.
Why would anyone want to see the bat dick? D.C. might as well print your dads dick in there.
For anyone wondering, this is a DC Black Label book. It’s more graphic and sexual and shit.
It doesn't have little wings.... :(
The Dark Knight Rises
I don't know what I expected.
First appearance of the Bat Hammer!
I can’t lie, I’m a little disappointed
Bruce hangs dong.
You know that’s cave is cold! Bruce must’ve either been warming up for the picture or isn’t much of a grower.
Batdicks aside, how is this issue? I’m not aware of this series.
First we had the Bat Nipples, then we got the Bat Ass, now we have... the Bat Dick!
why did i click this
why am i here
why did i comment
When you actually want part of history erased and need Superboy Prime to punch the walls of reality, he’s nowhere to be found.
So....that's a thing to unsee.
So this is why I couldn't pick up Batman: Damned today at Comic Town.
This was the only thing sold out.
Batman fan's love the cock.
Wait, is...is he commando under the batsuit? No cup or anything?
Black Label, not cannon batwang move along people.
How dare DC to make me feel so emasculated. Now when my girlfriend wants to hit me with something that stings, all she has to say is, “Batman has a bigger dick than you.”
So thats the legendary Dark Knight
Not to be rude to Danny, but doesn’t the Iron Fist seem like a bit of a low-tier power for Doom?
This is the sixth time since "Doomwar" that Doom has gotten "omnipotent". 6 times in 8 years.
I can't bring myself to care about this plot anymore.
Somehow, that makes God Emperor look modest.
This reminds me of something that a 10 year old would come up with.
I think its finally time. We need Combo Man!
Fun twist here: this issue has all of the 1milBC hero’s powers presented except one. No panther themed hero... yet.
Okay, so now Doom has the powers of Iron Fist, Starbrand, Ghost Rider, and Dr. Strange, and is due to go up against Phoenixverine and Odinthor, while Zombie Ego and a little worm (Loki?) play games in the background.
This is getting screwier than Cosmic Ghost Rider.
GDI, Doom, stop overcompensating!
Does he have the Starbrand, too?!
Marvel conics, ladies and gents.
Woah. Anyone care to fill me in?
I hope this is as tongue-in-cheek as it seems.
Doom's a god again?
This is so stupid. And I'm not talking about the visual design, that is overkill on it's own.
When 900 years old you reach, look as good, you will not.
I don't really read Star Wars comics much anymore but everytime I see them it looks like the art is so bad compared to the first year or so. What in the world happened to art standards for the line???
The Art in Mace Windu was so weird/bad/sometimes good, overall i enjoyed the story tho
Reach deadlines, you did not
He actually looks like a rotting jack o lantern, just why do this?
Clearly it’s Yogurt from Space Balls
He sort of looks like Drax from the MCU
He looks like Yoda if Yoda was a 50 year old white trash abusive alcoholic father
I'm normally not picky about art in comics, but whoever drew this deserves jail time
It's Denys Cowan. Dude created Static Shock. He's always had a grungy Bill Sienkievietch style. But yeah, you take a random, isolated panel, it looks bad. Like you can take a random, isolated panel out of any book and the same thing.
The art in that Mace Windu mini was awful. I gave up on reading it part way through the second issue.
Marvel seemed to be putting their top artists on the Star Wars books when they got the license back a couple years ago. Today, not so much.
