    It causes me no joy to give any comic written by Alan Moore one star, but this is how it has to be. Now, before I write a single word more, let me start with this simple disclaimer: I consider Alan Moore the best writer to have ever worked in comics. There are no qualifiers to that; no qualifications. Moore is unmatched.But The Killing Joke? As a Batman book, it's just bad. That isn't to say there's nothing to like here: this book certainly has i...

    “All it takes is one bad day to reduce the sanest man alive to lunacy. That's how far the world is from where I am. Just one bad day.”Now this was good, and I mean good. It’s such a simple idea, but so real and powerful. I mean one bad day is all it takes. One push, one snap, one descent into chaos and it’s over. Once you’ve crossed that threshold then things will never be the same again. And the Joker, being the sly and brilliant villa...

    "If I have to have a past, then I prefer it to be multiple choice." Brilliant, absolutely loved it! This is the best Batman graphic novel ever written. Here we have a collection that includes two of the greatest comic book characters. The Caped Crusader aka Batman and the Clown Prince of Crime aka the Joker. (suck on that Marvel)What can I say about Joker? He is my favorite villain of all time. He's the greatest, hands down. He's been a const...

    A truly masterpiece of the comic books! This is a prestige format stand-alone story.Creative Team:Writer: Alan MooreIllustrator: Brian BollandColorist: John Higgins HAVE COURAGE Nothing’s going to be the same… …not ever again. A writer should have balls, and I don’t mean the organic meat sacs, since a female writer is the same entitled to have balls. But if you aren’t confortable with the “male metaphor”, I am confident that you al...

    (A) 85% | ExtraordinaryNotes: A discomforting, audacious book that compels re-readings and focused, lingering looks at specific pages and panels.

    5.5 stars!!! OH…MY…GOD…I thought I knew everything there was to know about the Joker, one of Batman’s greatest foes. But after reading “Batman: The Killing Joke” and how the Joker was portrayed in this book, the Joker has officially become one of the most VILE, TWISTED, DARK and most DISTURBING villain I have ever come face to face with…AND I LOVED IT! Being brilliantly written by Alan Moore and being masterfully illustrated by Bria...

    Should some origin stories be better left untold? Comic publishers will embellish the backstory of character more than necessary or drag it out and milk it, or they’ll retcon the character one too many times until the reader doesn’t know which way is up. If there’s a month, a week, a day, a couple of minutes left undocumented in a character’s background, it’ll be fodder for a future story.Does the Joker need an origin story? Some basic ...

    MY BLOG: Melissa Martin's Reading ListOMG! THIS BOOK WAS AWESOME! THE STORY LINE! THE GRAPHICS ARE FREAKING AMAZING!I'm sure everyone and their cousin has already read this book, but I haven't so here we go. This is about how the joker turned nutsy cuckoo! He had a good job but left it thinking he could be a stand up comedian and support his wife and unborn baby. Well.... that didn't happen, he apparently wasn't funny --->who knew?Then he goes an...
