backissuebinBatman: The Killing Joke has to arguably be one of the best, if not the best, singular Joker stories ever written. I dare say it's one of Alan Moore's best works, come to think of it. Watchmen was an epic unlike no other, with characters put into an epic 12 issue series that forever changed the face of comic books. With the Killing Joke, Alan Moore's script takes the Joker and brings him to an entirely new light. Never before had we seen the Joker like this. Never before had we seen such brutality in a mainstream comic. Never before had such an established character been approached quite like this. The cover alone speaks for itself.

Quintessential Joker story. Equally classic frustrated Batman. Poor Bats. What do you think? Does Batman finally snap? Does Joker live to tell another joke? This graphic novel manages to be a fresh after all these years. A must for anyone's collection!

The more I think about the ending, the more I realize it works.

The best portrayal of The Joker in comics. Period. Brutal, tragic, chaotic, and--in a disgusting sort of way--funny.
