Masculinity and The Joker in Greg Hunter’s Review of “Batman: Death of the Family”

This is a great review/analysis of The Joker by Greg Hunter over at The Comics Journal. If you are vaguely interested in any of the Batman movies or comics, or if you enjoy the occasional pop culture critique, check it out. We need to rethink how we draw, write, think, and view (on-screen or on the page) evil and villainous characters. Hunter puts his finger on an important issue in the American cultural imagination surrounding masculinity and homosexuality.

Frank Miller’s depiction of The Joker in his acclaimed graphic novel, “The Dark Knight Returns.”

Would love to hear what you all think! Feel free to comment and start the conversation.
