Holy moly, Batman! The Joker's on the loose again. Learn how to draw Joker’s face and put it on a "Wanted" poster.

The Joker is the arch-nemesis of Batman. He appears clown-like, with a white face, bright lips, and unusually colored hair. But like a scary clown, he has a sick sense of humor.

The Joker wasn't always a supervillain. He was a criminal, sure, a small-time crook in Gotham City. But he was driven to madness after falling into a vat of toxic chemicals.

Later, his psychiatrist falls in love with him and becomes a supervillain in her own right - the iconic Harley Quin.
