Presented for the first time with stark, stunning new coloring by
Bolland, BATMAN: THE KILLING JOKE is Alan Moore''s unforgettable
meditation on the razor-thin line between sanity and insanity,
heroism and villainy, comedy and tragedy.
According to the grinning engine of madness and mayhem known as The
Joker, that''s all that separates the sane from the psychotic.
Freed once again from the confines of Arkham Asylum, he''s out to
prove his deranged point. And he¿s going to use Gotham City''s top
cop, Commissioner Jim Gordon, and his brilliant and beautiful
daughter Barbara to do it.
Now Batman must race to stop his archnemesis before his reign of
terror claims two of the Dark Knight''s closest friends. Can he
finally put an end to the cycle of bloodlust and lunacy that links
these two iconic foes before it leads to its fatal conclusion? And
as the horrifying origin of the Clown Prince of Crime is finally
revealed, will the thin line that separates Batman''s nobility and
The Joker''s insanity snap once and for all?
Legendary writer Alan Moore 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.
