BATMAN & THE JOKER: THE DEADLY DUO #1 from DC Comics hit your local bookstore this week. We are going to take a look at four different aspects of the book and why they worked so well in this week’s episode of the Panel Breakdown.
The first issue is written by Marc Silvestri, with colors from Arif Prianto, and you will read Troy Peteri’s letter work.
CHAPTER ONE: THE ENEMY OF MY ENEMY
The Joker will go to any lengths to get Harley Quinn back after she is abducted by a strange culprit. But who? Mysterious, Joker-like monsters are stalking the streets of Gotham, collecting severed heads. But why? Jim Gordon is missing, and after receiving a package containing a bloody piece of Gotham’s commissioner, Batman knows he must be willing to do anything to save him. But how? When The Joker proposes an uneasy alliance with Batman, the answers to those questions begin to become clear— and they will shake Gotham City and the Bat-Family to their core. This meticulously crafted tale of the Dark Knight’s deadliest team-up will introduce you to a grim and gritty Gotham that only Marc Silvestri could bring you.
