Batman: The Killing Joke by Alan Moore
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Batman has always been my favorite superhero, and this particular book has been said to be the best one, so of course I had to read it. I'm not a big fan of graphic novels (if I'm not wrong, I think this is the first one I read), but I'm glad I decided to give it a try.
The star of the show is not Batman but no other than the Joker. I liked that he was given a compelling backstory. Of course that doesn't justify his actions but it helps to get to know the “villain” a little and to understand his actions.
Something that I'll never understand is why Batman always lets the Joker go. I mean, it's not like he lets him escape; it's that in this particular case, the Joker did something that really pissed me off
The graphics were good. At times they were a little creepy, but they did justice to the story, and really, it was a dark one, so they fitted it. No complaints about them.
It's totally worth reading this. I'll most definitely continue reading more of Batman. I mean, please, it's Batman. He's one of my (many) fictional crushes.
