The Joker Psychology, 12 : Evil Clowns and the Women Who Love Them
by Travis Langley and Michael Uslan




Overview -
A fun, frightening, and always fascinating look into the psyche of a madman: the Clown Prince of Crime, the Harlequin of Hate--The Joker

Since he first fought Batman in 1940, The Joker has evolved into one of popular culture's most complex and confounding psychological creations: both a criminal mastermind and an unhinged psychopath now starring in his own film. In The Joker Psychology: Evil Clowns and the Women Who Love Them, Dr. Travis Langley, author of the bestselling Batman and Psychology, returns to Gotham City to explore the twisted psyche of this great supervillain, as well as the personalities who are inexorably drawn to it. Paying special attention to the strange dynamics of relationships like the one between The Joker and Harley Quinn, this collection of 15 chapters (including some very special interviews with the people who brought The Joker and Harley Quinn to life in comics and onscreen), this collection analyzes:

  • Why a bright, laughing monster who looks like a clown could be the ultimate antagonist to a grim, brooding hero who looks like a monster.
  • The relationship between a therapist and her patient--and what happens when a therapist crosses the line, as Harley Quinn does when she falls for The Joker.
  • How a smart person could fall for the most dangerous of criminals.
  • Why so many fans find Harley Quinn inspirational.
  • How different kinds of therapy could (or could not) help twisted minds like Mister J and Harley Quinn.
  • The development of a fictional character that so completely embodies psychopathy (including interviews with creators who have shaped The Joker's character over the years).
