The Arkham Sessions, Ep. 21: “Joker’s Favor″

You never, ever want to owe the Joker anything. But some poor sap…er, citizen made a wrong turn and now he owes the biggest psychopath in Gotham a favor. This is also the first time we see the Joker’s very special numero uno, Harley Quinn! In this week’s episode of The Arkham Sessions, we talk about whether someone can really “snap,” chat about the Joker’s diagnosis and question why anyone would ever want to be his sidekick!

    It’s interesting to me that you brought up serial killers and planning, because if you’re going to make that comparison when it comes to the Joker, I see him more as H.H. Holmes than Dahmer.

    Holmes, who built a murder-hotel full of deadly traps and rooms designed for torture in a variety of ways without any of the builders catching on, displayed a capability with long term planning– but he was also capable of impulsive behavior as well.
