The clown prince of crime made his onscreen debut 50 years ago. While The Joker has graced DC’s pages since 1940, his look has (arguably) changed the most through TV and film adaptations—and Burger Fiction gave his many incarnations a proper and thorough send-up.
Aw it's a wittle baby Joker! Don't you just want to pinch its cheeks and coo "why so serious?" at his creepy smeared lips? Let's hope this adorable Joker Doll inspires the internet masses to clamor for a Dark Knight Rises Baby Doll line. It can't be any worse than Baby Voldemort!
In the wake of the Spider-Man musical's total disaster, somehow the Batman Live Arena Tour has gotten a free pass. But just check out these photos. Nothing good can come of a stage show with Schumacher undertones. Or can it?
We're loving Courtney Crumrin writer/artist Ted Naifeh's fresh new take on Batman. Especially his redesigns of some of the greatest Batman comic covers from Detective Comics. Plus his redesigns of Batgirl, the Joker, and other iconic characters.
The Dark Knight's director is finally setting the record straight on a few Batman rumors. And while it's no major surprise that the Joker won't be recast for a third film, we're sad about what else didn't make the cut.

Whether you're looking for superpowered pets, non-moving motion comics, classic tales retold or spelunking adventure the way you want it, there's only one place to look this week: Your local comic book store. Why, yes: These are comics we crave.
This week's Batman: The Brave and The Bold offered parallel worlds, evil dopplegangers and sane Jokers. No wonder this imaginative, colorful cartoon is quickly becoming the best Friday night show that isn't Battlestar Galactica.
Sometimes it's as if merchandisers have never seen the movie they're cashing in on. For example, the makers of The Dark Knight Joker Combination Ski Mask and Beanie. Way to memorialize Heath Ledger, guys.
It was the movie of last year, and at the center of The Dark Knight was Heath Ledger's compelling Joker. But... who really invented the worryingly sane Clown Prince of Crime? Maybe not Chris Nolan.
Warner Bros has confirmed that they are going to be campaigning for Heath Ledger to be nominated for, and to win, a posthumous Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his role in The Dark Knight - becoming on the seventh actor to be nominated for an Oscar after their death - but some are complaining that his Joker…
The movie may still be breaking records in theaters, but does that mean that it's too early to start a marketing campaign for The Dark Knight's DVD and BluRay release in December? Apparently not, as many Twitter users discovered on Friday afternoon, when a familiar face asked to befriend them.Within 24 hours of the…
Why are people still so crazed over Heath Ledger's Joker after a month in theaters? Maybe because he's the first villain we've seen in ages who didn't kind of lick.
