4 Batman: The Killing Joke

Alan Moore said the Killing Joke wasn't saying anything interesting. I disagree. The whole idea of the Killing Joke, is, quite simply, "all it takes is one bad day to drive the sanest man alive to lunacy". Which is very true. I've had years of my life to ponder the message and meaning of the book, and, even if Moore didn't see it, he created one of the most chilling books to date. It's the ultimate battle between good and evil, right and wrong. And it shows that even the worst of us were once human.

I don't know why everyone likes Watchmen so much. The ending was terrible and lazy. I loved V for Vendetta, and I think that would be a close second to this. People always disregard this book since it's a Batman story, where as others such as From Hell or Watchmen are seen as more mature because they have original characters and what not. But Alan Moore and Brian Bolland merely used the familiar world of Batman to craft the ultimate tale of good and evil, sanity and insanity, and how even the most depraved humans were once regular people, driven over the edge by tragedy. The art from Brian Bolland is the best in all of comics, and the ending too, is the best in not just comics, but in all of literature.

This is incredible, because for the first time ever, you get to see the other side of the joker; and you realize for the first time, that, joker is just a person. He's not a demon, not an evil alien, just a man who lost everything and couldn't cope with it. It really blurs the line between whether joker is really evil or not,

I WANT THIS ON NUMBER 1! Sorry folks, but I'm a humongous fan of this story. I'm so happy that they made tis adaption as an animated movie. Feat. Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill. And even though Alan Moore is a great guy. I still love this story. - asantalo
