Yes, that's him. His face may have been colored pink by some unknown and probably harried staff artist, but this is the first cover appearance of the Joker, the most-collected cover character in comics fandom. Couple this with the first-ever appearance of Clayface, one of the Batman's most memorable villains, and this is a perfect Bat-collectible.
