Hit-and-run in Gotham City

Hit and Run

Detective Comics #826, March 2007

Paul Dini's script has Joker behind the wheel of a SUV, running down pedestrians on the snowy streets of Gotham on Christmas Eve, with a kidnapped Robin alongside to observe. The running dialogue (all rather one-sided since Robin is gagged with a Christmas decoration) has Joker proving his homicidal-maniac bonefides with casual hit-and-runs and a murderous trip through a fast food drive-through.

This Joker is the 'Killer Clown' of Batman's many decades, but letting the character dominate the tale while going about murdering people with no particular grand plan beyond the immediate gratification of torturing Robin (who can do nothing) is unique. Nearly the whole tale is told from within the interior of the SUV as Joker monolgues his way through the murders and Robin desperately struggles to break free.
