Compare & Contrast: Detective Comics #623 (1990) & Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker (2000)
I always praised Paul Dini for investing so much of his energy, creativity and time in DC Animated Universe, and for providing us, Batman & DC Comics experts/admirers, with some of the finest and original interpretations of a lot of iconic and memorable characters.
One of my favorite DCAU-related DTV’s happens to be Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker (2000), but… did you know that there is one MAJOR TWIST (something that has to do with a certain Boy Wonder) in particular, that actually happened IN THE COMICS BEFORE the movie WAS RELEASED?
Ladies & gents, I would like to show you a small compare/contrast video project that ties several pages from a forgotten Batman comic: Detective Comics #623 - ‘Death of Innocence’ (written by John Ostrander & drawn by Flint Henry & Mike McKone) with the film.
Issue 623 was first published in November 1990 — 10 YEARS prior to the unveiling of Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker to the world.
