Unpopular opinion alert:
I sooooo prefer the special subscriber’s edition, with its neon-Miami-80s-Warhol-vibe?
It seems so much more iconic and puts the focus on the character design.
This newsstands edition is just way overproduced. Between the aggressive Photoshop shading on every angle in his face and torso, to the computer generated purple-electricity bolts (like, did they really need to be p u r p l e????). Whoever ok’d this is not ok.
This looks less like Jared’s Joker and more like some sort of new villain called The Shocker – who, well….draw your own conclusions.
Like, this cover’s interpretation of Jared’s Joker is basically Joel Schumacher’s wet dream – if he was still doing the Batman series. Which…errrm.
