Best comic book covers april 1 (1)

It’s a good thing that I did not fall for any pranks today, on this the first day of April. For if I did, I would have looked quite the fool. An April Fool, one might say. While you can rest assured that the tradition has run its course by the time you read this post (did anyone notice that I’d snuck Half-Life: Episode 3 into the April games round-up today?), I couldn’t let this day pass without paying tribute to everyone’s favourite homicidal prankster: The Joker.

The clown prince of crime may be a force of chaos in Gotham, but he’s also a genius behind some of the greatest pranks ever pulled on the Dark Knight. Just to give you an idea, here’s a few from Batman’s eight decades of action that the harlequin of hate has managed to get away with:

  • Gave out free poisoned cotton candy to a troop of boy scouts
  • Got tricked into thinking that he was going to be dead, managed to Jokerize  the entire super villain community for a last laugh
  • Managed to get Superman to punch a pregnant Lois Lane into space (Read Injustice: Gods Among Us, kids!)
  • Phoned in a hit and run accident…that he committed several seconds later
  • Tried to patent laughing fish
  • Managed to get Batman’s Bat-Family to believe that he’d cut off all of their faces and was about to serve it to them as dinner

That’s a whole lot of pranking right there! So here’s to the Joker, the only villain who’ll leave you with a smile on your face. Now, on to the best comic book covers of the week!

      Dude, every cover so far has been classic stuff. It goes without saying, but that Alex Ross kid is going to go places in the comic book industry I think.

    Man, that Star Wars one really takes you back to the good days of SW.
    …and we all know Geralt and Yennefer rode a unicorn better than Deadpool ever will.
