    Perhaps one of the best Joker stories, my recommendations!!

  • Aug 04, 2012 André Santos from Rio de Janeiro, Rio de Janeiro

    One of the first Batman's comics i ever read. Great, a classic!

  • Jun 11, 2012 Daniel Young from Traralgon, Vic

    This book is simply beautiful. I have considered buying this book for some time but as an artist I find the original out-dated colouring grinds on an artistic nerve that I just cant stand (kind of like watching Avatar if it had been filmed with a handy-cam bought from Kmart) so avoided buying it all together even if it went missing out on a brilliant story. So when I found out it had been recoloured I jumped at the chance to grab it, and my God I was BLOWEN AWAY! This book is so gorgeous, the new colouring makes it look EPIC, takes it to the level of all out Blockbuster. All in all its a lovely looking book. The story is brilliant of cause as we all know, its a classic and a must have and always has been story-wise but now with the new look modern colouring look just buy it even if you have the original. You will be in awe.

    Short and sweet, but the new colourist is a little overzealous in his bringing this classic to life in a more modern way, and something is lost in the process. Updating and revamping old books like this is a good idea in theory, but often not in practice.

    A classic Batman story that had (and continues to have) a huge impact on Batman's world. The art has been recolored by Brian Bolland in this edition, so it looks more modern.

  • May 26, 2009 Thomas Lozano from Ukiah, CA

    It's one of greatest Joker book I ever read (before The Joker graphic novel). I give this book two thumbs up.

  • Apr 13, 2009 Stephen from Homosassa, FL

    When I opened to the first page and saw how this comic was drawn, I was in awe. The art is so modern, I was shocked to find out it was printed in the 80's. Taking the cover sleeve off, I saw the coolest cover. This was a great way to commemorate (one of) the origin(s) of The Joker.

  • Apr 11, 2009 Stephen Lawandus from Florida

    One of the best comics I've ever read.

  • Mar 07, 2009 Kerry from englewood CO

    great artwork good story!

  • Dec 28, 2008 Kenny from Boulder

    If only there were a better rating than "5 stars", because this book deserves a higher honor. This is so much more than a simple graphic novel- it is a study in insanity, and a beautifully drawn piece of comic art. Being one of the only non-TPB graphic novels to actually influence the modern continuity, The Killing Joke rips out the very heart of Batman's essence and pumps it with the steroids of awesome. From the very first panel, the reader is hooked. The little surprise at the end- a newly-colored exerpt from the pages of "Batman: Black and White" serves as an unrelated -yet somehow quite fitting- epilogue. This is simply modern comics at its greatest.

  • Oct 21, 2008 Danica from Townsville, Australia

    Best of the best.

  • Aug 10, 2008 Ronnie from Texas

    Greatest batman graphic novel ever written.

  • Jul 25, 2008 Jason from Maryland

    I bought this book back in 1989 but could only find a 3rd printing back then. Anyways, its still rather difficult to find because its so good. This is one of the best Joker stories if not best Batman story ever told.
