The greatest joker story ever told.
Brian Bolland's line work is fantastically detailed and with the crown prince of comics writing this was destined to become a timeless read.
It's a lean noir story with great repurcussions on the Bat mythos, that continue to haunt many of the stories written today.
Moore blends both comedy and tragedy in this peice and bolland work will make you shiver and smile , often within the same page, with a deft sense of dynamism rarely seen in comics.
a great introduction to one of 20th centuries greatest fictional villians!

If you check the ISBN you will find that this is the original 1988 edition, which sells for a cool £50. It is probably an error on Waterstones part, as they also say "Date of publication: 30/11/1995". Anyway, if you order it'll be interesting to see what comes. Either way. £3.44 delivered is an awesome price for this amazing Batman graphic novel
