  • Amazing

    I like the unique concept of the Joker’s plot and the interesting question he poses. Other people have already said everything great about it, so I won’t waste words. just know that it’s good. The reason I took a star off is because I would like to see the emotional consequences for Barbara and Gordon more because that would either contribute to or refute the Joker’s point. Though Gordon is shown to still be sane, it must’ve still had some traumatizing effect on him, and also Barbara. Highlighting that a bit more would have driven the monstrosity of the Joker’s deed deeper.

  • The Joker is finally brought to the light

    THIS IS A MUST READ!!! The joker is the main character here, and his origin is something that you wouldn't really think of with all the theories out right now..Its an amazing comic story with outstanding colors. You'll really enjoy the story but the flash backs are what's really important

  • The Best Joker Story And One of The Best Batman Stories

    By JadenTheMusicGuy
    The Killing Joke is a masterpiece, To me it is the Definitive Joker Story. The Art Work is Amazing and The Writing really draws you in. It's Dark, Gritty, And Disturbing like The Joker Should be. It gives you a glimpse or an Idea of The Jokers Origin story, Who he is, We're he came from, And what caused him to turn into The Best (In My Opinion) Comic book Villain of all time. I give it 5 Stars.
