About the Author

A one-time cartoonist, Ed Brubaker has been working as a writer since the early 1990s, and in that time his work has won several awards, including both the Harvey and Eisner Awards for Best Writer in 2007, and has been translated around the world. His comics credits include Batman, Catwoman, Gotham Central, and Sleeper for DC Comics and DaredevilCaptain America, and Criminal for Marvel. He lives and works in Seattle, Washington, with his wife, Melanie, and many pets.

Born in 1963 in the Year of the Rabbit, Doug Mahnke embarked on a love affair with comics at the age of five. He landed a job drawing comics for Dark Horse at the age of 24. Doug and writer John Arcudi collaborated on Dark Horse’s The Mask and their creator-owned series Major Bummer, originally published by DC. Since then Doug has worked on a wide variety of titles (including Superman: The Man Of Steel, JLA, Batman, Team Zero, Seven Soldiers: Frankenstein, Black Adam: The Dark Age and Stormwatch: P.H.D.) with such writers as Joe Kelly, Judd Winick, Chuck Dixon, Grant Morrison, Christos Gage and Ed Brubaker, just to name a few. He lives in the midwest with his wife and six kids, one dog, and a bunny named Suzie.

5.0 out of 5 stars First the introduction of Joker and second a detective team up. I enjoyed both.
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on December 30, 2018
Batman The Man Who Laughs contains 2 stories, first The Man Who Laughs and another called Made of Wood. While I'm no expert on comics and most of my experience is from Marvel I really have grown more partial to Batman and am still new with only Batman Year One, The Long Halloween, Dark Victory, Hush, The Dark Knight Returns, A Death In The Family, and now The Man Who Laughs, so take my opinions as you will.

The Man Who Laughs is a one shot written by Ed Brubaker, artwork from Doug Mahnke and colours by David Baron. Released in 2005 this story introduces the Joker following Frank Miller's Batman Year One. It's an interesting story because at this point Batman has never encountered anything like the Joker and the impact a single criminal can have on Gotham. The artwork was great and at times can be disturbing complementing the laughing gas to make you visually as well as mentally uncomfortable with the thought of something so terrible. Overall it was a great story, I feel it was an appropriate introduction into the Joker and left me wanting more and luckily, there a lot of Joker to be read.

Next up is Made of Wood is a 3 issue story (Detective Comics #784-786) from 2003 written by Ed Brubaker, art from Patrick Zircher, and colours from Aaron Sowd (parts 1-3) and Steve Bird (part 3). This is a decent detective issue, I think I preferred the artwork in this issue. In these 3 parts the re-emergence of a killer is made after several decades of absence. The case was never solved and now Batman and Green Lantern team up to attempt to solve this case that Lantern couldn't solve and haunts him. I will say I do think the 3rd part is kind of short compared to the previous 2 but still good.

Overall a nice one to have, and an easy recommendation to anyone who has already read Year One. The introduction of the Joker in the first story and a Batman Green Lantern team up being detectives in the second. Both have appealing artwork with decent stories and well worth picking up, maybe not as iconic or as essential in my opinion as A Death In The Family but worth a read.

Hopefully you found this review helpful and happy reading.
