The Killing Joke is a one-shot written by Alan Moore, drawn by Brian Bolland, and colored by John Higgins. The book goes into detail on one of the Joker’s back stories.

This book is mainly based around the Joker’s back story. And the fact that he doesn’t know what his past is, that every day he remembers it differently, and he says, “If I’m going to have a past, I want multiple choices”. So, the Joker shoots Barbara Gordon also known as Batgirl, and paralyzes her. He then has one of his thugs beat up Commissioner Gordon, knocking him unconscious. The Joker then proceeds to kidnap Gordon, he strips him naked and puts him on oneĀ  of those fun house trains showing him pictures of his daughter naked, all the while the Joker is singing a song telling Gordon that he can make it all go away if he goes insane. However, Gordon withstands the psycho treatment and the Batman arrives, he then gets into a great fight scene with the Joker, all the while the Joker tells him that one bad day can drive a man crazy, this is how the Joker went crazy, and the same with Batman. And he proves that Batman is insane, just not the same as the Joker. And this is proven when Batman laughs maniacally at the Joker’s joke.

I personally think that the book is great, however, the writer Alan Moore fells that it is not as good as his other stories and he overall does not find it that good, I very much disagree. The novel is great because it shows how similar Batman and Joker are to each other, and this Joker helped influence Heath Ledger’s Joker in The Dark Knight.

With that, this is an absolutely fantastic Joker story, definitely go buy it.

The cover of Alan Moore's Watchmen

Watchmen was written by Alan Moore and illustrated by Dave Gibbons. Watchmen was originally a mini-series published under DC Comics, it spanned one year with twelve issues and was collected into a graphic novel around 2005. It was the winner of the Hugo Award and was the only graphic novel on Time Magazine’s list of the top 100 English novels.

Watchmen has been widely received as the most celebrated graphic novel of all time. Many times director’s had tried to adapt the book to film, and in 2009 in some ways Zack Snyder (director of 300) succeeded.Many fans did not like the film very much, personally I thought it was a pretty faithful adaption, click here to read my review of the film.

Watchmen, to put it simply, is a great book, and definitely was the pinnacle of the comic medium, or did it ruin it? As I said this is an excellent book, great writing a wonderful story, that was revolutionary in superhero comics. But when Watchmen and Dark Knight Returns, were, as I said, the pinnacle of the comic medium, but to me they brought down the comic medium for quite a while. NOTE: Both books are really violent, and explicitly sexual, so the idiot writers of comics didn’t take the hint to bump up the writing but instead they pile on the gore and tits, and throw the writing to the to the god damned wind. Thus began the ’90’s era where in comics there was nothing but gore and tits. This pisses me off. Whatever, know one even cares what I have to say. And yes I stole this rant from MovieBob.
