Joker came out last Friday, and it seems like everyone is talking about it. It's already made over a quarter of a billion dollars at the box office, and has divided critics and viewers alike with its portrayal of a man and his mental illness.

Whether or not you liked the film, or have even seen it, there's plenty of Joker fan art populating the internet for you to enjoy. We've picked a few of our favourites below.
