Special Feature:
The Joker Parade Sequence Storyboards
Part 2

Another special feature brought to you by 1989Batman.com and Batfan Thorsten Lehmann- The Joker Parade Storyboard Sequence! Over the next few weeks, we will be posting a collection of storyboards detailing an early version the Joker parade float sequence from the film. These storyboards were created from an earlier version of the script and differ quite a bit from what ended up on the big screen.

Since there are a large amount of storyboards for this pivotal scene, the sequence will be broken up across multiple posts. Today's post features Vicki and Knox discovering Joker's hidden plot. Enjoy!
