Re: The Official Batman (1989) Thread - Part 4
That's true of certain interpretations and instances, but not all. Often, The Joker is the "Clown Prince of Crime", and is shown to have rather aristocratic, aquiline features, and a somewhat bon vivant disposition. It then becomes easier to see what Harley Quinn sees in the maniac.
I think he should look surreal and even eerie, but his monstrous nature can often be hidden in a velvet glove.
