This book is grate
I don’t really like bat man but I loved this book
Urban myth and unspeakable horror
In this volume, with deft keystrokes and digital color, writer Scott Snyder and artist Greg Acapulco provide a Joker story that perhaps eclipses even Alan Moore and Brian Bolland's The Killing Joke. The genre is Lovecraftian horror, and the haunting visual, referenced over and over, is the Joker's own face, which he himself has removed to leave for Batman as a portent of sadism to come. Terrifying.
