‘Batman: Three Jokers #3’ (review)

Written by Geoff Johns
Art by Jason Fabok
Published by DC Comics

 

Well, this is it! The end of the Three Jokers storyline that has permeated the DC Line of comics these past five years.

This issue also represents the last remaining threads from the Rebirth storyline. It does so with class and ingenuity and this is definitely a well done ending. You actually can’t ask for better than this.

The beginning of this issue has Batman, Batgirl, and the Red Hood standing around looking at some photographs of the Joker in many forms.

They realize here that they have been fooled by the Joker for many years. They also have to figure out how to stop him this time.

But can they defeat him at all?

The Red Hood and Batman have an argument and fight over that very question. The three of them are coming apart.  They have to go out back in the field. This may be their last fight with the Joker. Or it could be something else entirely.

The rest of the issue is insane.

We get to see Batman react to the news that Joe Chill has been taken!

It all leads into one of the best endings to a series that I have seen in quite some time.

And that is saying something.

I don’t want to spoil anything so I am not going to say much more. Geoff Johns has written a script that is worth re-reading after you finish to pick up a lot of the details you may have missed. The same goes for the art by Jason Fabok. He not only does the best work of his career, he has produced exemplary work that will outlive him.

This is hands down the best Batman book in years.

RATING: A+
