Critically acclaimed author Alan Moore redefined graphic novel story-telling 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.


According to the grinning engine of madness and mayhem known as the Joker, that''s all that separates the sane from the psychotic.
