DC’s Knight Terrors: The Joker #1 Review: A Twisted and Terrifying Tale

DC's Knight Terrors The Joker #1 Review A Twisted and Terrifying Tale

The DC event Knight Terrors will investigate the fears shared by heroes and villains. Readers of Knight Terrors: The Joker #1 by Matthew Rosenberg, Stefano Raffaele, Romulo Fajardo Jr., and Tom Napolitano can experience what it’s like to enter the shattered psyche of the Clown Prince of Crime when he’s unable to wake up.

He is already a terrifying person, so the things that truly disturb him are the antithesis of what would disturb the average person.

At the start of the issue, the Joker sees his darkest dread realized: Batman dies. The Dark Knight’s demise, however, is a case of poor luck and has nothing to do with Mr. J and his gang’s terrible conduct. The supervillain isn’t ecstatic about his enemy’s death; in fact, he’s having a hard time finding any reason to keep going. His low spirits prompt him to seek employment with Wayne Enterprises.

Knight Terrors #1: The Joker is brilliant, hilarious, and a ton of fun. Rosenberg not only injects a nice dose of humor into the plot, but he also manages to depict the warped character of the Joker’s mind and biggest dread. Considering the Clown Prince’s pathological hatred for Batman, it’s not unreasonable to assume that the death of his archenemy would deprive him of all meaning in life.

Rosenberg is especially adept at mocking the pompous trappings of corporate life, evoking comparisons to the satire of Adam F. Goldberg, Hans Rodionoff, and Will Robson’s Damage Control series. Without giving anything away, it seems like the Joker’s psychopathy could potentially help him rise up the ranks of management.

Raffaele fully understands the author’s intent because his/her artistic interpretation matches the text. As the Joker’s mood shifts throughout the story, so do the comic’s panels, which feature a mix of genuine moments of melancholy and hilarity.

Raffaele has a remarkable eye for balancing complexity and minimalism in his work. The artist turns down the fine details to emphasize the characters’ interactions and turns up the line work to convey the monotony of office life.

Joker’s True Fear: Standout Art and Lettering

Fajardo, like the artist, makes excellent use of color in Knight Terrors: The Joker #1. In certain scenes, the colorist goes wild to depict the wild, unpredictable nature of the Joker, while in others, muted tones are used to highlight the soul-crushing monotony of corporate life.

Napolitano has incredible lettering skills. The letterer has developed a distinct font for the Clown Prince’s dialogue, and the special effects are used sparingly yet effectively to give some scenes an extra dash of magic.

The method used in Knight Terrors #1: The Joker was, to be perfectly honest, to be expected. Since the Clown Prince is already a nightmare in and of himself, anything that terrifies him must be very different. However, the execution of the concept by the creative team is faultless. There are scary elements throughout the issue, much like the protagonist himself, but the climax really packs a wallop.
