A New York Times best-seller
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 referred to as The Joker, that’s all that separates the sane from the psychotic. Freed once again from the confines of Arkham Asylum, he is out to prove his deranged point. And he will use Gotham City’s top cop, Commissioner Jim Gordon, and his brilliant and beautiful daughter Barbara to do it.
Now Batman will have to race to stop his archnemesis before his reign of terror claims two of the Dark Knight’s closest friends. Can he in spite of everything put an end to the cycle of bloodlust and lunacy that links these two iconic foes before it ends up in its fatal conclusion? And because the horrifying origin of the Clown Prince of Crime is in spite of everything revealed, will the thin line that separates Batman’s nobility and The Joker’s insanity snap once and for all?
Legendary author Alan Moore redefined the super-hero with Watchmen and V for Vendetta. In Batman: The Killing Joke, he’s taking on the origin of comics’ greatest super-villain, The Joker—and changes Batman’s world without end.
