Welcome back to The Overlooked Dark Knight, the podcast that shines a light on Batman stories hardly anyone talks about!
This time out Andy and Mike take a look at the 1995 graphic novel Joker: The Devil’s Advocate. Written by Chuck Dixon with art by Graham Nolan and Scott Hanna this story explores what happens when the Joker is finally put on trial for his crimes. The problem? Batman doesn’t believe that the Joker is behind the murders he is being tried for. The hook? Batman’s right. The guys talk about the writing, the art, and the deeper ideas explored in this story up to and including captial punishment. After that Andy and Mike go through your feedback from previous episodes!
Below are the cover and select pages from the book discussed during this episode.
