Well, there are going to be some serious changes with me. My reviews will be changing drastically. I plan on doing them similarly to my old reviews at TheSkyIsOurOcean (go ahead and click on it and read some of the old reviews, then come back, you may understand a little more). They were sort of like short rants, and I want to get back to that. I want to do this because my current reviews are boring as hell. I find them extremely boring and am going to change as I said. To give you an example something more like my Resistance Retribution review, personally this was my best review. I feel like a driveling drone “this comic is good, the art work is fantastic, the graphics are some of the best I have ever seen”, boring amirite? Resistance Retribution was not boring at all, in my opinion it was good. The reason I feel that my reviews are boring now is because I added structure, at first structure was good, the reviews were detailed and lengthy and no necessarily boring. Now they’re nothing but drivel. So expect these changes soon. There should also be a new top 5 list soon. I’m bored as hell guys. And more Ultra Violence tomorrow.

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.

Batman: The Long Halloween was printed in a maxiseries format with thirteen issues, written by Jeph Loeb and drawn by Tim Sale.

There is a killer slaying members of the Falcone family (a gang that is taking over Gotham City) and marking his killings with holidays, starting on Halloween, and ending the following year also on Halloween. Of course Batman is trying to stop him as all of the super villains in Gotham seem to amassing for an attack. This story also doubles as an origin story for Two-Face.

What really made this book great for me was that usually in Batman books there are either just gangsters, or just super villains, however, The Long Halloween uses both and does it well, no other Batman book that I’ve read besides The Dark Knight Returns. But sadly besides this and Hush Jeph Loeb hasn’t really made anything good, mostly he sucks, besides the two books aforementioned. Very upsetting. However, Tim Sale’s art is very good, it has this sort of Saturday morning cartoon feel, and it is very good. But I will say that Jeph Loeb does not know how to write the Scarecrow, apparently he thinks that all the Scarecrow does is recite nursery rhymes, and although at some times it works, but it is just not needed at some points, and is kind of stupid.

This aside, I do very much recommend this book, one of the best Batman books ever published.
