Great Covers – DETECTIVE COMICS #880

This is a brilliant, excellent modern comic book cover by Jock for DETECTIVE COMICS #880. Simple, imaginative, elegant and graphic, it captures the attention and says something about the character–in this case, how the Joker’s fluttering thoughts are all focused on his arch-rival, the Batman. The simplified palate of black, white and red is used to great effect–the Joker’s bat-symbol eyes are like a magnet, and his gashlike painted smile highlights his madness and obsession.
