    Let's not forget that ComicMix's own editor-in-chief Mike Gold was the editor of this volume for DC.

    was that with the one with the laughing fish cover?

    • Linda Gold says:

      Not on the original hardcover. I am not sure what the softcover was but I think so.

      • Rick Taylor says:

        Kyle Baker did the cover on the original hardback.

        • Linda Gold says:

          Yes and it's a terrific piece.

            Can anyone tell me more about the different covers? I keep seeing 3 different ones: (1) the 1988 cover with Joker in the purple suit with the gun coming out of the flower on his lapel (2) the laughing fish cover, and (3) the one pictured above entitled The Joker: Greatest Stories Ever Told. I'm confused…which is the original cover illustration?

    I don't know if it's in this collection, but one of my all time favorite Joker stories is "Going Sane", from Legends of the Dark Knight.Rick
