Batman: The Killing Joke is Alan Moore’s unforgettable meditation on the razor-thin line between sanity and insanity, heroism and villainy and comedy and tragedy. The legendary writer redefined the super-hero with Watchmen and V for Vendetta. In Batman: The Killing Joke, he takes on the origin of comics’ greatest super-villain, The Joker —and changes Batman’s world forever.
The Killing Joke is widely considered to be the be-all-end-all of Joker stories. The art by Brian Bolland is so appealing that his depiction of the Joker became a standard and was imitated by many artists to follow.
