Here’s What The Joker Looks Like as Designed by Movie FX Legend Rick Baker

DC

It’s been a couple of days since you saw new photos of Jared Leto’s version of Joker, which means you probably just now stopped laughing about it (until we see more pics from Suicide Squad, anyway). But here’s something to interest (and maybe frighten) you: special effects master Rick Baker has created his own rendering of Joker, one that is not only great, but kind of unnerving — you know, the way Joker should look. It’s too bad we might never see this version on the big screen.

Ask Chris #237: What The Heck Happened In ‘Batman RIP’?

Ask Chris #237: Batman RIP

Q: Batman RIP: What's going on in this book? I like Morrison, but I do not follow the plot. -- @daingercomics

A: My friend, you have come to the right place. I generally think Grant Morrison gets a bad rap for writing superhero stories that are too complex --- a complaint that you see about almost everything he writes going all the way back to "Rock of Ages" in JLA, and probably back to Animal Man if you go looking for it --- but R.I.P. is a story with a whole lot of moving parts that can be pretty hard to keep track of unless you're the kind of person who has been obsessing over the details of 75 years of Batman comics for their entire life.

Fortunately for you, that's exactly what I am, which is one of the reasons that Batman R.I.P. is probably my favorite Batman story of all time.

‘Suicide Squad’ Star Jared Leto Shows Off His Green Hair and Some Lipstick

DC Comics
DC Comics

Jared Leto’s hair is kind of a big deal right now. It’s become its own entity, mutating until it eventually takes its final form. It looks like we’re very close now, as the Suicide Squad star has revealed a selfie in which he sports some signature Joker-green hair, along with a little bit of lipstick, which really does make his eyes pop, you know? Sadly, we have had no updates on the hair belonging to any of his co-stars, as Leto continues to steal their hair-thunder.

The Batman Episode Guide 1×16: He Meets His Match, The Grisly Ghoul

Batman 1x16: He Meets His Match, The Grisly Ghoul

The 1966 Batman television show was one of the most successful and influential adaptations of comic books to mass media of all time. Over the course of three seasons and 120 episodes, the series became a cultural force with its unique combination of tongue-in-cheek humor, thrilling superhero adventure and celebrity guest stars, and shaped the way the public would view the Caped Crusader for the next five decades. Now, in the midst of a well-deserved renaissance of the show, ComicsAlliance is proud to present The Batman '66 Episode Guide, an in-depth examination of every single adventure, arch-criminal and deathtrap cliffhanger of the series.

This week, the Joker unveils his master plan to make a killing... on high school basketball?!

The Greatest Couples in Comics: Can Anyone Beat Wally & Linda?

flash-linda

Last week we polled you on some of comics' most celebrated couples. Rather than pitting them head to head, we offered a straight vote between 'True Love' and 'Bad Romance,' and as a result, we have a list of twenty couples rated for greatness, with Harley Quinn and Joker down at the bottom, and the perhaps surprising choice of Wally West and Linda Park at #1. But a lot of famous couples are missing from the list, and even though Valentine's Day is behind us, we've not yet had our fill of love.

So here's your opportunity to nominate the other couples that need to be voted on to come up with the definitive list of comics' greatest romantic couples. Wally and Linda are the current king and queen, but can another couple claim their crowns?

Ask Chris #132: ‘Christmas With The Joker’

Untitled-1

Q: Why does everyone hate the "Christmas with the Joker" episode of Batman: The Animated Series? -- @tekende

A: You know, I'm not sure everyone does hate "Christmas with the Joker." I certainly don't, but then again, I can't really say that I like it a whole lot either. It's definitely one of those episodes that pops into mind whenever I start thinking of the worst episodes of the series, although it misses out on being the actual worst by a long shot. But that said, I don't quite know the reason why.

Clearly, a rewatch is in order.
