Top Five Most Iconic Joker Covers

Here are my picks for the top five most iconic covers featuring Joker (with iconic being determined by what covers are most established and most recognized when it comes to Joker, with a preference towards covers that are homaged a lot).

A Month of Iconic Covers!

For the month of September, each day I’m going to feature the top five “most iconic” covers for various Marvel and DC characters with one notable exception – no covers from that character’s first appearance. I think that those covers throw things off too much, as obviously the most iconic Flash cover is going to be Showcase #4, the most iconic Spider-Man cover is going to be Amazing Fantasy #15, etc., so it takes away the mystery of what #1 will be.

I’ll alternate DC and Marvel characters, plus I’ll occasionally give people the chance to vote (via polls) on close calls.

The first one will be up in a couple of minutes! Hope you folks enjoy it!
