Why So Serious?

Paul and Matthew delve into the enigma of Gotham’s Clown Prince of Crime. They ponder the symbiotic relationship between hero and villain: Does the Joker need Batman, or is it Batman who needs the Joker? And they tackle the contentious debate — who was the best Joker?

Riki Hayashi and Matthew Fox explore the ethical questions from the stories geeks love—superheroes, sci-fi, anime, fantasy, video games, and so much more.
