Why We Love Detective Comics

The Joker ran a newspaper!

It's true!

This is from Detective Comics #193, from 1953.

I've never read it. I wish I could! It looks crazy. You thought YOU had some crazy bosses! Imagine working for the Joker!

(The Joker was still in his "eccentric gangster" phase in the 1950s, and had not yet become the lovable mass-murdering psychopath we would come to know and love starting in the 1970s.)

I just love the idea that this story exists. Maybe somebody scanned and put it online somewhere. If I find it, I'll add a link.

Yeah! Here it is! Along with some amusing commentary!
