Okay, in Joker's Asylum: The Penguin by Jason Aaron, there are some awesome scenes where it shows how much The Penguin rules.

The first is when he's talking about this girl he loves and how much he's changed and you randomly see his bodyguards fighting in the background. You think nothing of it until the next page you see Batman was beating the **** out of his guards while listening to him ramble on. Batman states he'll be watching, and The Penguin replies: "Yeah, yeah, see you next week."

The second involves Penguin taking this girl out to a restaurant. The Penguin is going to tell her how much he loves her when he is interrupted by the chef laughing. He immediately grabs a knife as he thinks the chef may be laughing at him but the girl persuades him not to. He doesn't.

Then the following happens:

And so they ate their dinner and enjoyed their evening, and Penguin never said a word about the chef who’d laughed.

But a few days later, that building had a new owner, and the restaurant was forced to close, its employees all fired.

And the day after losing his job, the chef found that his girlfriend had been suddenly deported to Romania, and his best friend arrested for child pornography, despite his insistence that he was framed.

The day after that, a new tenant moved in next door and began blasting their stereo at all hours of the day and night. The landlord stopped taking his calls.

The church he attended was closed for fumigation, after a bizarre infestation of killer bees. The park where he liked to sit and read was annexed and bulldozed.

And then the chef, who was a recovering alcoholic, woke one morning to find that a 24-hour liquor store had opened across the street from his apartment.

Less than two months after he’d crossed paths with the Penguin, a night janitor found the chef in a bus station restroom. He’d hanged himself.

I LOVED that issue. Clearly the best of Joker's Asylum which has been a crapshoot.

Joker sucked, Penguin ruled, Poison Ivy sucked, Scarecrow was really good, and the Two-Face issue was decent.

So is the Joker's Asylum - prose batman?

THat seems like way too much effort to go through, I mean - I know the penguin would've just told someone to make his life hell, and one of his lackey's did all the groundwork. But how long would it take for them to arrange all that. And the fact that it wouldn't make a public statement - that you don't mess with the penguin, hell the guy wouldn't even know why it'd all happened. And the penguin probly didn't even know, did the chef get to penguin that much, that the penguin is getting updates on the chefs suffering? Nah he probably just said "give him the treatment" and knew what was gonna happen next. I bet he does it several times a week as well.

It's all completely ridiculous....and yeah quite cool...

That kinda reminds me of the BTAS episode where the Penguin tries to become a society bigwig and dates some pampered girl just to realize she's playing him for laughs in her circle of friends. But more badass.
 

thee great one

Master of TOG-fu.
What do you recommend? He did Scalped right...i been meaning to read that for ages.

Looks like he's not written anything in the DCU 'cept for this.

Scapled is the best. I love it.


He is doing the Secret Invasion tie-ins for Black Panther. Which the first issue was unique.

He did a arc on Wolverine that was pretty decent.

His Ghost Rider is really good.

And he did a 2 issue stint on Hellblazer that has me wanting him on it for a run.

That's enough to make me demand a Penguin comic book.
