Review: Batman: The Killing Joke (Batman)

User Review  - Alexis - Goodreads

It was a weak origin story. Disfigurement and the sudden death of a loved one isn't going to turn a humble, bumbling idiot into an articulate, clearly intelligent psychopath. I can't believe this is ... Read full review

User Review  - SJ - Goodreads

Alan Moore has gotten a lot of flack over this book-- for using a woman's body as a plot device, for relying heavily on shock value without saying anything, etc. I wanted to read it myself so I could ... Read full review

User Review  - Patrick Walsh - Goodreads

The original publication coloured by John Higgins would receive 5 stars Brian Bolland ruined this book with his bland, mundane, frankly half ars*d attempt at colouring. Sorry Brian, but John did a better job. So what if you didn't like it. Read full review

I really disliked this. The story was anticlimactic and forced. It's also just about the worst origin story ever. Read full review
