NotesEdit

  • The first printing of this issue features a "Joker face" die-cut cover, with Batman's face underneath.


TriviaEdit

  • The Joker kills John Claridge, who is mentioned to be the son of Henry Claridge. This is a reference to the original Joker story, where Henry Claridge was his first victim.[2][3] Joker luring Batman to the Ace Chemical Processing Plant is a reference to his origin as the Red Hood, originally told in 1951.[4][5]
  • Several references are made to Batman: The Killing Joke and Batman: A Death in the Family: One of Joker's joke variants at the GCPD involves "a clown in a Hawaiian shirt knocks on a door" from the former, while the script he forces John Claridge to read compares Mayor Hady's death to "a baby bird smashed with a crowbar!" from the latter.
  • The van Joker arrives into Gotham in has "Forget Me Not Catering" written on the side. This is actually a joke. Since the villain has been away for so long, he wants Gotham to "forget him not."
