DC Comics Presents
One-shots & Mini-series
- Knights of Knavery A team up between the Joker and the Penguin.
- A Death in the Family #1-4 The death of Jason Todd.
- Batman vs. The Incredible Hulk
- Dark Knight Returns A decade after Batman retires, he is forced back into
action. Guess who's there to greet him.
- Batman:Kellogg's Special
- Batman & Spiderman The first crossover of this series. Spidey and Bats
vs. Carnage and Joker
- The Killing Joke A disturbing story relating a possible origin of the Joker
and the shooting of Barbara Gordon.
- Devil's Advocate Batman must prove the Joker is insane to prevent him from
going to the chair.
- Arkham Asylum Definitely the scariest rendition. Don't read alone in the
middle of a stormy night.
- Batman: Batgirl Batgirl's first encounter with the Joker
- Batman: Haunted Knight A collection of Batman stories, the Joker has a small
part in one of them.
- The Joker (1997)
DC published an "tangent" Joker comic in which they simply took the name and created a new
character around it. A little heavy, but just zany enough to qualify.

Batman #1, try reading this compilation of early Joker stories.
