Everyone loves comic book trivia, but with 75 years of superhero comics behind us right now, there’s always some new obscure fact to learn. That’s why ComicsAlliance is going deep into the minutiae of your favorite characters in our continuing video series. You think you know comics? Well, here’s a few things you might not know!

Do you know how I got these scars? It was from writing up this series of twelve pieces of factual information about the Clown Prince of Crime, the Joker! Watch in rapt amazement and terror as we disclose the Joker's inspiration and creation, his ups and downs across the decades, and the strange history of his various associates, as well as several other equally fascinating facts.

Show notes:

  • This video is dedicated to the memory of the steadfast YouTube commenter who faithfully posted "FOR THE LOVE OF GOD DO THE JOKER" without fail for weeks on end on every video we put up. Mourn you til we join you. (I assume you have died since I haven't seen that comment in a few weeks.)
  • If you like reading about the Joker, maybe you should check out this list of the best Joker stories of all time.
  • If you want to read some of those stories, you should buy The Joker: A Celebration of 75 Years.
  • If Joker cutting off his face, strapping his face back on, dying, and then being immortal sounds cool to you, maybe read Death of the Family and Endgame.
