Comic Review: Batman The Killing Joke
An origin story about the joker who is trying to break the will of a good man–Commisoner James Gordon. An iconic DC title written by Alan Moore (The Watchmen, V For Vendetta) and illustrated by Brian Bolland (Animal Man, Wonder Woman).
Batman goes to see the Joker in the hopes of trying to get through to him. This of course fails and later the Joker escapes once again. He takes over a run down amusement park and begins to make some changes. Commisoner Gordon is captured and tortured by the Joker. Bringing him back to the amusement park Gordon is forced to sit through a specially made ride of hellish proportions, just for him. With this, Joker hopes to prove his point–we are all just on bad day away from becoming like him.
Another game changer in the Batman universe. Not only do we get to see how the Joker came to be, we also understand more about why he does these things. You will definitely fell a little sick during some points of this comic. Try to imagine yourself in Gordon’s shoes. A must have for any Batman fan. Also if you want your mind blown check out Grant Morrison’s opinion on the ending.
