I've been studying esperanto for probably a decade now, but technically i've always been one of the eternal beginners (or eterna komencato?). Now i'm wanting to learn the language in full, but I dont have access to a good dictionary. The only one i know of doesnt give me very good results.

I would love a better dictionary, but in particular I'm interested in learning vocabulary for comic book superheroes. In particular I'm having trouble figuring out how to translate their names (joker is one i'm having alot of trouble with, i also cant figure out how to translate his nick-name: the clown prince of crime).

Can anyone help me?

Joker would be Ŝercanto or Ĵokero
Ŝercanto is aperson who jokes, a Ĵokero is a joker in playing cards.

thanks.

and i think i prefer ĵokero since he does use joker cards as his symbol. i dont like ŝercanto since that implies he's some nice funny guy.
