More Detail :
Batman The Killing Joke is a 1988 DC Comics one-shot graphic novel featuring the characters Batman and the Joker written by Alan Moore and illustrated by Brian Bolland. The Killing Joke provides an origin story for the supervillain the Joker, loosely adapted from the 1951 story arc “The Man Behind the Red Hood!”. The Joker’s origin is presented via flashback, while simultaneously depicting his attempt to drive Jim Gordon insane and Batman’s desperate attempt to stop him.
Created by Moore, Bolland, and Higgins as their own take on the Joker’s source and psychology, the story became famous for its origin of the Joker as a tragic character; a family man and failed comedian who suffered “one bad day” that finally drove him insane. Moore stated that he attempted to show the similarities and contrasts between Batman and the Joker. The story’s effects on the mainstream Batman continuity also included the shooting and paralysis of Barbara Gordon (a.k.a. Batgirl), an event that eventually leads her to develop the identity of Oracle, secret data broker for the DC Universe’s superhero community and leader of the superhero team, The Birds of Prey.
Many critics consider the graphic novel to be the definitive Joker story and one of the best Batman stories ever published, though the story’s exploitative treatment of Barbara Gordon has garnered criticism. The comic won the Eisner Award for “Best Graphic Album” in 1989 and appeared on The New York Times Best Seller List in May 2009. In 2006, The Killing Joke was reprinted as part of the trade paperback DC Universe: The Stories of Alan Moore. In 2008, DC Comics reprinted the story in a deluxe hardcover edition, which features new coloring by Bolland, with a more somber, realistic, and subdued palette than the original. Elements of The Killing Joke have inspired or been incorporated into other aspects of Batman media.
Reception and legacy :
Although a one-shot, the events of The Killing Joke were adopted into ongoing comic book storylines. DC Comics officially retired Batgirl in the one-shot comic Batgirl Special #1 (July 1988), and when Barbara Gordon reappeared in the Suicide Squad series, she was in a wheelchair and became the computer hacker known as the Oracle. This event, along with a Batman storyline that takes place shortly afterward, “A Death in the Family”, involving the Joker murdering Robin (Jason Todd), The Killing Joke, leads Batman’s obsession with the Clown Prince of Crime to a personal level.
The mantle of Batgirl would eventually be passed to successor Cassandra Cain and later, Stephanie Brown. Gordon’s paralysis was later retconned into a temporary event that lasted only three years in DC Comics’ 2011 line-wide title relaunch, The New 52, which saw her restored as the first and only Batgirl.
The graphic novel won the Eisner Award for Best Graphic Album and garnered Alan Moore the Best Writer award in 1989. Hilary Goldstein of IGN Comics praised The Killing Joke, calling it “easily the greatest Joker story ever told” and adding that “Moore’s rhythmic dialogue and Bolland’s organic art create a unique story often mimicked but never matched”. IGN declared The Killing Joke the third-greatest Batman graphic novel, after The Dark Knight Returns and Batman: Year One. James Donnelly of Pop Syndicate called The Killing Joke “one of the greatest comics of the 20th century, period”.
Van Jensen of ComicMix said, “Each time [I read The Killing Joke] I’m amazed all over again at how Alan Moore and Brian Bolland teamed to pack such intensity, ferocity and humanity into those pages.” B.L. Wooldridge of Batman in Comics called the graphic novel “an incredible story, with Moore at his best and awe-inspiring art by painter Brian Bolland”. Comics historians Robert Greenberger and Matthew K. Manning describe it as “the definitive Joker story of all time”. Manning additionally called it “one of the most powerful and disturbing stories in the history of Gotham City”.
Seb Patrick of Den of Geek also had a mixed response, calling The Killing Joke “one of the most revered and influential ‘Batman’ stories ever written and arguably the definitive Joker story”, but adding that it’s “not at the level of [Alan Moore’s] true masterpieces [such as] Watchmen, V for Vendetta [and] The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen”.
