The killing joke
This is one of the best if not the best batman stories Because it is brilliantly written it offers a history to a twisted man we call the joker
A MUST READ for all Batman Fans. A classic tale that redefined the Batman Mythos!
This book changed the game when it was released and you can surely tell when reading it. It is friendly for new readers and offers multiple reads. I’ve read it so many times and just absolutely love its story. It’s so dark and crazy, unlink Batman at the time, and Alan Moore is such a talented writer. ALL IT TAKES IS ONE BAD DAY! Absolutely amazing story. This iBook is a solid copy, works great on my iPad Mini (2019)!
I like the unique concept of the Joker’s plot and the interesting question he poses. Other people have already said everything great about it, so I won’t waste words. just know that it’s good. The reason I took a star off is because I would like to see the emotional consequences for Barbara and Gordon more because that would either contribute to or refute the Joker’s point. Though Gordon is shown to still be sane, it must’ve still had some traumatizing effect on him, and also Barbara. Highlighting that a bit more would have driven the monstrosity of the Joker’s deed deeper.
