    "This is a great story by Frank Miller. This a interesting take on Batman and Robin who is a girl in this version. If you like really gritty Batman and like Superman getting beaten up by Batman like I do, you will like this comic."

    Batman: The Killing Joke

    "There aren't a lot of Batman comics (or any comics, really) more iconic than Alan Moore's 1988 one-shot, The Killing Joke. The relationship between Batman and the Joker is the most memorable and important part of the Batman mythology, and this book captures all the dysfunctional aspects of their twisted connection to each other. Bolland's breathtaking artwork solidified this as an instant classic. When it comes to Batman comics, The Killing Joke is unquestionably among the very best."

    "I love The Long Halloween. The serial killer who is the focus of Batman's search is one of the best villains of any genre. I also love the tie-in to Two Face. "

    "Perhaps this could be a confession by the authors and illustrators of their true attitudes of female characters in their stories? The best way I'd describe this book's relation to the Batman series is a distraction."
