A NEW YORK TIMES Bestseller! Presented for the first time with stark, stunning new coloring by Brian Bolland, BATMAN: THE KILLING JOKE is Alan Moore's unforgettable meditation on the razor-thin line between sanity and insanity, heroism and villainy, comedy and tragedy. According to the grinning engine of madness and mayhem known as the Joker, that's all that separates the sane from the psychotic. Freed once again from the confines of Arkham Asylum, he's out to prove his deranged point. And he's going to use Gotham City's top cop, Commissioner Jim Gordon, and the Commissioner’s brilliant and beautiful daughter Barbara to do it.

  • The Joker is finally brought to the light

    By Traw12345
    THIS IS A MUST READ!!! The joker is the main character here, and his origin is something that you wouldn't really think of with all the theories out right now..Its an amazing comic story with outstanding colors. You'll really enjoy the story but the flash backs are what's really important
  • Awesome

  • The Best Joker Story And One of The Best Batman Stories

    By JadenTheMusicGuy
    The Killing Joke is a masterpiece, To me it is the Definitive Joker Story. The Art Work is Amazing and The Writing really draws you in. It's Dark, Gritty, And Disturbing like The Joker Should be. It gives you a glimpse or an Idea of The Jokers Origin story, Who he is, We're he came from, And what caused him to turn into The Best (In My Opinion) Comic book Villain of all time. I give it 5 Stars.
