It causes me no joy to give any comic written by Alan Moore one star but this is how it has to be Now before I write a single word let me start with this simple disclaimer I consider Alan Moore the best writer to have ever worked in comics There are no ualifiers to that no ualifications Moore is unmatchedBut The Killing Joke As a Batman book it s just bad That isn t to say there s nothing to like here this book certainly has its moments some of which are brilliant in fact But as a story it doesn t workKilling Joke is really two stories told in parallel It provides an origin for the Joker while simultaneously following him on a scheme to drive Commissioner Gordon insaneThe origin is largely based on an old issue of Batman from the 50 s The Man Behind the Red Hood As much as I appreciate the nod to the past the Red Hood origin of the Joker is one I could do without While I am not in favor of attempts to make Batman realistic I do feel that some elements should be handled carefully if handled at allAnd that s really the problem here Not only did Alan Moore use an absurd origin he made it so In the original the Red Hood was a hardened criminal before he became the Joker In this version he was a comedian having a really bad dayI think I understand what Moore was trying to do here I believe he wanted to create an element of pathos in the Joker s past while playing up the absurdity of the mediumBut the result felt sloppy Instead of adding layers to the Joker s personality it just made him less interestingThe real problem with Killing Joke however is the other story line The Joker takes Barbara Gordon by surprise shooting and paralyzing her Setting aside my personal objection to crippling one of DC s best and at the time few female characters Moore missed a huge opportunity here Had Oracle s injury been sustained as Batgirl the psychological effect on Batman could have been developed in great depth as he d have been responsible for placing her in harm s way As it was the story only takes a toll on her father and that s largely wrapped up by the end of the comicThe Joker s motive for all this mayhem to break Jim Gordon and prove that a bad enough day can drive anyone insane comes to nothing In part he s foiled by Batman but really he loses because he s wrong Gordon is strong enough to survive his ordealIn the end after everything The Joker s comprehension of the human psyche is wrong To me this destroys the character s credibility The Joker has no superpowers but madness is his expertise For him to set to prove a point about insanity than fail not due to Batman but rather his own assumptions weakens him Even after shooting Barbara he ends the book less of a threat than he startedNow let s be honest one star is a harsh rating and were this book not commonly called The Greatest Batman Story Ever Told I d almost certainly have been lenient There are certainly excellent aspects to the writing and the art aspects that would buy any other book three starsBut this isn t any other book It s one of the most significant Batman stories written having forever altered the continuity and status of several characters It s Alan Moore s most famous Batman storyAnd it really isn t that good
