The Joker - The Reason - Ben Rosenthal

The Joker has just caused the deaths of hundreds of innocent people. Batman has him cornered in an alley, pinned to the wall.

1. A close up of The Joker’s face, a large smirk on his face as he talks to Batman. A thin line of blood trickles from the corner of his mouth.

Heh heh. So do it already. C’mon Bats, I’ve killed hundreds this time. Be a man, end it.

2. A close up of Batman’s stoic face.

You can’t though, can you? I’ve worked it out. Wanna know why?

3. Same as Panel 1, with The Joker looking more riled up, eyes becoming more excitable, as he prepares for his big reveal.

Not because of some supercilious moral code of the hero. Not because you don’t have it in you. No, you’ll never kill me because...

4. Batman’s stoic face, lips tighter than usual.

You love me.

Heh, heh, heh...



  1. Aww, Ben, that's almost sweet. You should have saved it for Valentine's Day!

    That crazy Batman, he's all about the love.

  2. Ben - I'm pretty sure you've finally lost it. That's all I've got to say, make of it what you will. :)
