Top Five Most Iconic Joker Covers
Here are the top five most iconic covers featuring the Joker (with iconic being determined mostly subjectively by what covers are called to mind when one thinks of the Joker, but with a prominent objective standard of whether a cover is homaged a lot or featured a lot in histories of the character). The notable exception is no covers from a character’s first appearance (which isn’t applicable to all characters, including the Joker)! Here‘s a list of all characters featured so far.
5. Artist: Alex Ross
Ross has been probably the most popular Joker artist for the past decade plus, in terms of posters and prints, and this cover became a popular poster after the issue’s release in 1999.
4. Artist: Jerry Robinson
Joker as a sprite-like figure was a popular motif during the Golden Age (and it just seems right to feature a cover by the first artist ever to draw the Joker).
3. Artists: Marshall Rogers and Terry Austin
“The Laughing Fish” is one of the most iconic Joker stories of all time.
2. Artist: Neal Adams
Adams absolutely nailed the return of the Joker to the Batman comic.
1. Artist: Brian Bolland
Nothing really needs to be said about the Killing Joke, right?
