With the anticipation brewing for Batman: Arkham Origins, which is just around the corner, the developers decided to wet our geeky whistles with a little trip to the New York Comic Con. Everyone, with just a little prodding, convinced one Troy Baker to read his audition piece. That would have been good enough, but his audition piece was the Joker’s monologue from The Killing Joke. This graphic novel, which is considered to be canon as the Joker’s origin story, is widely considered one of the best graphic novels of all time. Well, Mr. Baker decided to lend voice to this legendary character at NYCC are the results are…wow. Just wow. I could gush on and on about how spectacular it is, but why don’t you just take a listen for yourself. After watching, let us know who your favorite Joker is…there could very well be a heated debate here!
