When BOB DYLAN Met Carmine Infantino’s JOKER

Infidels!

Earlier today, I posted that The Times They Are a-Changin’ was Bob Dylan’s greatest contribution to comics, what with the song’s inclusion in Watchmen’s inspired opening credits sequence. (Click here. It’s awesome.)

But on the day that he won the Nobel for literature I’m also reminded of those afternoons on the couch decades ago, during the dawn of MTV, when Dylan’s Jokerman (from the album Infidels) was in heavy rotation.

My favorite part? When the Joker himself appeared. And not just any Joker, but Carmine Infantino’s classic depiction. (Inked by Murphy Anderson, I do believe.)
