About the Joker:
In his comic book appearances, the Joker is portrayed as a criminal mastermind. Introduced as a psychopath with a warped, sadistic sense of humor, the character became a goofy prankster in the late 1950s in response to regulation by the Comics Code Authority, before returning to his darker roots during the early 1970s. As Batman's nemesis, the Joker has been part of the superhero's defining stories, including the murder of Jason Todd (the second Robin) and the paralysis of one of Batman's allies, Barbara Gordon. The Joker has had various possible origin stories during his decades of appearances. The most common story involves him falling into a tank of chemical waste that bleaches his skin white and turns his hair green and lips bright red; the resulting disfigurement drives him insane. The antithesis of Batman in personality and appearance, the Joker is considered by critics to be his perfect adversary.

About the Creation:
With a menacing grin, this original painting by artist Joe Rubinstein features the ‘Jester of Genocide,’ the supervillain Joker cooking up a devilish plot.   “I wanted something weird and different. My Joker is an interpretation of photographs of statues that I had seen of the character and then I made up the colors from character reference. As an artist, you can use whatever color you want as long as it’s the right value; and that means is it dark or is it light.” - Joe Rubinstein
