Aquarius, makers of fine puzzles, have just released a doozy! Feast your eyes on this 1000 piece puzzle featuring the Clown Prince of Crime, The Joker!
He is arguably the most infamous and recognizable comic book villain of all time. The Joker has been tormenting The Batman since his introduction on April, 25th. 1940, in the pages of Batman #1. Batman’s would be arch-nemesis was the brainchild of Jerry Robinson, Bill Finger, and Bob Kane. Many wonder if at the time, they understood the ramifications that would come from the development of this monster. He was Batman’s antithesis in ever way, a complete psychopath with an incredibly warped and deadly sense of humor. In Alan Moore’s seminal Joker tale, The Killing Joke, we learn that Joker was also born out of tragedy. “All it takes is one bad day to reduce the sanest man alive to lunacy.”
Perhaps, a challenging puzzle will do the same thing for you?! While not as puzzle-centric as the question mark clad Riddler, The Ace of Knaves has been known to task the Dark Knight’s mind on more than a few occasions. Now The Joker will task you, with this fantastic 1000 piece jigsaw puzzle. Several different iterations of our dear Mista J grace this fine jigsaw puzzle. It features illustrations from a bunch of artists who have all had a hand in translating the various looks the Joker has evolved over the years. Artists such as Lee Bermejo, whose take on the Joker is one of my favorites, and whose sketches clearly influenced the film, The Dark Knight. The puzzle measures in at 27 inches tall by 20 inches wide, upon completion. Pricing on this puzzle starts at just $15.99 before shipping and handling. It can be purchased by following the link here to our purveyors of all things geekgasmic, Entertainment Earth.
