A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

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.

Stunningly illustrated, BATMAN: THE KILLING JOKE, THE DELUXE EDITION has been lushly re-colored by artist Brian Bolland, presenting his original vision of this modern classic for the first time.

"Very Good" by ArrrTeee (Germany) on Feb 1, 2019

Amazing story in a very good special hardcover edition with slipcase.

"Wanna know how the Joker got his scars...?" by Jeroenh (Belgium) on Mar 17, 2012

Wanna know how the Joker got his scars? No, his father wasn't a drinker. He's a failed comedian without a real job. He's married with a son on the way, but he has no money to raise him so he must turn to crime. We get to see his origin through flashback scenes, but in the present day the Joker tries to prove a point: it only takes on bad day to get driven mad.

The Killing Joke is one of the best Batman stories out there. It's even better then Year One and The Dark Knight Returns in my opinion. It's well-written (Alan Moore was the writer. No surprise there!) and the artwork is fantastic. You deserve to read this book. Go buy it. That's an order.
