“Batman On The Edge”

published 08/08/2012

ProBatman... but slightly different.

ContraVery violent!

It’s hard to believe this was originally released in 1988, the story is one that sticks in your mind with regards to Batman and what his close friends are put through by The Joker, however with numerous re-prints and the occasional Special Edition released over the last 24 years, the book is...

“Batman One Shot”

published 16/12/2011

ProNew territory for Batman.

ContraAdult reading.

I’ve always said that things in the comic world happen for a reason and a Batman graphic novel called The Killing Joke had an immediate impact to DC and the characters linked to it. Originally released in 1988 to an audience that were still at the early stages of accepting graphic novels, the...

“The Tears of a Clown”

published 21/02/2009

Progreat storytelling, great art, great characters

Contradiscontinued from what I hear

One of the most compelling origins for one of the most infamous comic book villians of all time, Alan Moore's The Killing Joke, provides a heartbreaking answer to the history and motivations behind the Joker. If you haven't already read it, I am hesitant to give too much about this groundbreaking...

ContraOut of print

This comic book about Batman represents one of Batman's greatest enemies; The Joker. The Joker has tried time over time to get rid of Batman, but Batman has always triumphed over Joker. However, Joker decides to come up with a plan in order to get rid of the caped crusader once and for all. A...

“A classic Joker origin story”

published 24/09/2010

ProPretty much everything

ContraI don't get the Bob Kane picture (you'll see when ...

This is rightly considered one of the greatest Batman graphic novels, although it is concerned more with the Joker than Batman. It does a great job of making you feel sorry for this psychopahic, mass-murdering clown and asks real intelligent questions about the nature of sanity, about the...
