    Default JOKER'S DAUGHTER #1 Preview/Discussion

    Who is The Joker's Daughter? What horrors lurk in the mind of this deranged lunatic, and why is there more to her than meets the eye? More than just a crazy person who stumbled upon The Joker's face, more than just a woman with a mission, The Joker's Daughter sees herself as a woman on the path of greed, dominance and lordship over the Gotham Underground. This special issue tells a sordid tale in the life of one of DC's most popular new villains!

    This reads like it's trying too hard.

    Why is it that if she's already scarred and apparently has a Joker smile does she need to wear the rotten flesh of the Joker? What's crazier is that that thing i still mostly intact.

    Why is the Joker's daughter so popular with the silent majority? I find it crazy that a hobo who decides to wear a man's sloughed off face could be this popular.

    This character has been around since the '80s (Duela Dent; she called herself Joker's Daughter back then too). I guess for a lot of us, it's fun to see a new take on an old and somewhat forgotten villain. And I like the fact that she's a full-on gruesome, evil female villain, not the tiresome "sexy bad girl" type that infects superhero comics. Catwoman and Poison Ivy are cool and everything but are kind of cut from the same cloth.

    She'd have some more potential if she could just get away from Nocenti.

    She's not actually popular. Her 3D cover had the least printed, because it was one of the least ordered. Then Bleeding Cool got a hold of it, and made it out to be rare, so idiots paid upwards of 50 dollars for a book that was pretty universally panned, believing it's "rarity" would make it worth something some day. DC used this "hype" to pretend like she's relevant, or hell, maybe they honestly don't get it and see the 90s style "OMG THIS BOOK IS RARE AND GOING TO BE WORTH A MILLION DOLLARS SOMEDAY" as genuine interest in the character.

    Nevertheless, Nocenti's Joker's Daughter is pretty much garbage. Maybe Bennett can do something with it, or maybe DC is just trying too hard.

    Anyways... I like those first two pages, nice creepy look to it... but not so much when we get close ups on the characters.

    A "one-shot" is all this character should have had to begin with. If at that.
    The "Son of Batman" movie reminded me of the first reason I hated Grant Morrison's Batman run: Talia raped Batman and got away with it.

    I just want a Lobdell/Nocenti run on the entire Bat Family books just for giggles.

    This is the only element of the preview worth noting....

    i.e who is this woman, where did she come from and what by the grace of the gods is she drawing next?

    Yeah, I actually like the art style... but I don't care about the character.

    I don't know the ins and outs relating to her villain's month issue, but her appearance on the cover of Catwoman #24 clearly had some impact. Catwoman's sales jumped from the low 20,000's in the month prior to villains month to over 35,000 in November in what was a non-crossover, not-guest-starring-Bats issue.

    Course, that doesn't necessarily equate to popularity. And I can't judge either way. I dropped Catwoman months ago, so I don't know the first thing about the character - but certainly the idea of the Joker's Daughter was a big draw, in only for one month.
