    Meet the Three Jokers: The Criminal, The Clownish, The Comedian - Three Jokers-Interview with Jason Fabok

    It's admirable how strongly Jason Fabok promotes the book. Of course, he's the artist and he spent two years of his life on the artwork - but it's still admirable.

    Nrama: The Joker has not only caused a lot of trauma for Batman, but Barbara Gordon and Jason Todd as well. How did you want to dig into these wounds with your art?

    Fabok: The fun thing about this book was that I was able to draw a group of characters that I've never drawn before. I've drawn a lot of Batman stuff, but I never touched on the Joker much except for maybe a cover. I've never drawn Red Hood or Batgirl other than a few tiny panels here and there over the last few years. So, I really had a chance to get into these characters' heads.

    Geoff and I discussed a lot about who these characters were and what our vision for them was in our story, and that really helped me to get into them and really just understand them. One of your jobs as an artist, essentially, you're the film director; like you're directing the shot, and you're directing the action and the emotion on the page, but you're also an actor in a way too.

    So, a lot of the times you have to really read through the dialogue and you almost act it out yourself. When I was in school for animation that's what our teachers always told us: 'Try to act out the scene that you're trying to animate so that you can better understand how a person would move, talk, think, or the subtle little movements that they would do.'

    I do that a lot just with myself, I'll talk myself through the scene. So, I was really able to get into these characters and try to unlock some of the emotion behind what they're saying and what they're trying to portray. We feel that we've created some really compelling artwork and stories with these characters.

    I've come to really love Jason Todd and Barbara Gordon. I always liked Batgirl going all the way back to the animated series and even the old Batman '66 show. I've always been a fan of Batgirl, but Jason Todd I didn't really know much about. And I didn't really see the appeal for the character, admittedly, prior to this, but as I've worked through this book, I've really gotten into these characters, into their lives, into their story, and into the emotion that they're going through. I've really come to love them.

    Jason Todd, especially to me becomes a real standout. I really feel like Geoff's written something that's going to really resonate with fans. We take them through a very unique journey. And I'm excited to see fans' reactions to all of it really.

    XM Studios is excited to present our next 1:6 DC Premium Collectibles DC Rebirth series statue, Red Hood! Former Robin Jason Todd parted ways with the Batman over their vastly different approaches to crimefighting, eventually founding his own team, the Outlaws. Immortalized in amazingly detailed 1:6 scale cold-cast porcelain, each painstakingly handcrafted statue is individually hand-painted with the famous XM quality finish.

    Note:
    Pre-Order before 10.08.2020, 00:00 a.m. to receive a collectible Metal Plaque of the featured character as your early bird pre-order gift!

    Size matters, but Quality even more so! The new XM DC 1:6 line is specially designed for collectors who desire more space-friendly collectibles, without compromising on the incredible details and quality of larger collectible pieces. At 1:6 scale, XM's creative direction is to showcase more abilities, powers and essence of the characters in a bold, dynamic and story telling style. The new XM 1:6 DC line will amaze you with the details you don't expect at this scale. Smaller scale, smaller boxes, more affordable shipping and pricing means you can fit more of these incredibly detailed collectibles into your collection!

    Background:
    Death can be a strange thing for DC Super Heroes, especially when it doesnít quite stick. Just ask Jason Todd. As Batmanís second Robin, Jason died at the hands of the Joker when he was just a child. But he returned to life with the help of a Lazarus Pit and the literal warping of time and reality.

    Could you elaborate on that, please? i'm curious about your opinion.

    In generally how should his relationship be with each of the Batkids be? I mean I don't mind if it's a love hate relationship. I do think they are still bros despite everything

    Oophh, let's see if I can put it in words. It's just an opinion, not a fact; that, I want to make it clear first.
    I find Taylor's sense of drama... gimmicky, I guess? It's mostly based in the shock it causes, no matter if it has had a proper build up to get to that point. It also tends to appeal to the reader's previous affection to the characters involved: not the affection build in the story it's telling there, but the story outside, in other comics. It also feels like it's asking me "please, cry and feel sad now," somehow forcing me to feel bad, which usually doesn't sit me right when I'm reading or watching a story. And it is toooo fast for me, I guess.

    I also doesn't like melodrama a lot. I mean, I've liked some soap dramas, but it's not the kind of story I usually like. Unbelieabable, for someone who read X-Men and TItans and stuff, I know .

    As I said, it's a me thing. People usually like his drama, but I usualy don't like it. I like how fun and over the top he can be at timss though.
