Diego Olortegui who a very talented artist from Peru, less than 24 hours ago shared a drawing on DeviantArt that he drew of The Joker in a New 52 comic book style, mixed with the one set look we saw of Jared Leto’s Joker, from the other night’s shoot of Suicide Squad.
Sometime from that moment, until right now as I’m writing this article, someone took the photo, cropped it (in hand removing Diego’s signature) and placed a photo of Leto’s Joker next to it. With that simple doing it, the image spread like wild fire as being an original piece from the comics by some.
Since then defenders of Leto’s Joker appearance in Suicide Squad have been using the art as “proof” that he looks exactly like The Joker from the comics, tattoos and all, as that been a heated debate within the comic book community.
There’s many things wrong with that though, first it’s false information that’s being spread and second someone who created an awesome piece of art isn’t getting the recognition they deserve.
Hence why I decided to write this quick article about it, hopefully people read this and make sure to reshare Diego Olortegui’s art, which the original drawing can be found below:
