Odeon of Death: Joker
The Odeon of Death takes a look at the week’s events through the medium of cinema.
In a crime-ridden city rife with riots and demonstrations, Dominic, a maniacal party clown, causes chaos among the beleagured populace, while pursuing a vendetta against mayoral candidate Rory Wayne, in this deeply troubling origin story.
The Odeon of Death can be found on Twitter at, perhaps not altogether surprisingly, @OdeonofDeath.
