    The Joker: The Man Who Stopped Laughing #11 revitalizes the story and gets readers pumped for the finale. Readers get a better taste of who is who while simultaneously packing this issue full of violence and chaos paralleled by none other than the Clown Prince of Crime. Now, we may not know which one is which BUT we do get even more clues, a clever cliffhanger, and a rather explosive issue to drive this series home. Sure, the past couple of issues have been rather stagnant. But, I do not doubt that the fans who have hung around through this entire series will certainly find the excitement in The Joker: The Man Who Stopped Laughing #11 that’s been missing for quite some time.

    We’re so close as the story for Joker: The Man Who Stopped Laughing #11 pushes us right to the climactic battle to follow. Mr. Waffles even leaves readers with the conclusion we were waiting for to be revealed, although what will happen with that information, and what the repercussions will be now that the truth’s been revealed, remains to be seen.

    This series has gone on too long but the creative team have done a good job of mostly keeping this maxi-series engaging. Of course it’s all going to depend on how it successfully concludes, but this was a solid second to last issue.

    It’s the penultimate issue, and both Jokers are finally in Gotham and ready to go to war. One, the actual Clown Prince of Crime. The other, former henchman John Keyser, twisted by drugs and surgery into believing he actually is the Joker. One has a massive collection of hired supervillains, the other can barely keep a motley crew together. The problem is, this issue is such a scrum of explosions and fight scenes that it’s not easy to keep tabs on who’s who, especially since the Gotham Joker now has his trademark suit back again. The last page attempts to throw the entire concept of the series for a loop right before the end, but it doesn’t have the impact they’re hoping for. What does help to save this issue, though, is the interplay between Ravager and Manhunter, both of whom are actually compelling characters and have what the two Jokers lack—actual charisma as leads.

    The wheel turns as the latest Joker maxi-series continues to throw curveballs of just who is and who isn’t the the Clown Prince of Crime. Much like the Harlequin of Hate’s personality, the latest issue is quite chaotic, adding even more Jokers to the pot. Ultimately, with one issue to go, it feels like a lot of ground will need to be covered as readers attempt to get down to the bottom of the mystery of John Keyser. This penultimate issue feels like one of the series’ weakest to date, but that’s more thanks to some of the interesting moments we’ve seen in the series so far. Here’s hoping Rosenberg and Di Giandomenico are able to stick the landing when it comes to Joker’s latest series.

    Upon reflection, it almost feels like the Joker has become a strong enough character to sustain his own storyline, yet a part of me thinks that the story should feel incomplete without Batman. However, the utilization of side characters and multiple other Joker characters, paired with the art that makes the rain that seems to be ever-falling and drenching each and every character feels extremely real, has provided the story with enough leverage to keep the story moving.

    What a stunning issue. I’m both paralyzed by the snail pacing of the previous issues leading up to another chaotic mess of characters running around blowing things up for no reason as well as stuck on each page as my eyes focus on the smallest artistic choices made. The big picture is beautiful and a complete headache to think about. So don’t! Stop thinking about the story because, no spoilers, the ending just explains the mystery anyways! Love how there were so many moments where the truth was hidden for no reason other than to build suspense and then the writer just tells you point blank what’s going on. If you have the misfortune of owning this issue just cut it into pieces and use the art in fun ways, guaranteed whatever mess you end up with will make more sense than this series!

    Joker: The Man Who Stopped Laughing #11 gives readers some answers, but it’s too late to have much impact. The art is stellar, but the total lack of story progression during the first ten issues is glaring as Mathew Rosenberg desperately tries to convince readers that there was ever a worthwhile story here. Oh well, Joker: The Man Who Stopped Laughing only has one more issue to go, and then LAX lovers can rest easy again.
