Batman: The Killing Joke, Deluxe Edition
BATMAN: THE KILLING JOKE es la memorable meditación de Alan Moore sobre la línea delgada entre la cordura y la locura, el heroísmo y la villanía, la comedia y la tragedia.
De acuerdo con el motor de locura y caos conocido como The Joker, eso es todo lo que separa a los sanos de los psicóticos. Liberado una vez más de los confines de Arkham Asylum, está dispuesto a demostrar su punto de perturbación. El principal policía de Gotham City, el comisionado Jim Gordon, y su brillante hija Barbara para hacerlo.
Increíblemente ilustrado, BATMAN: THE KILLING JOKE, THE DELUXE EDITION ha sido reconstruido de manera exuberante por el artista Brian Bolland, presentando su visión original de este clásico moderno.

Una gran historia acompañada de un grandioso arte por parte de Brian Bolland es lo que esta novela nos entrega que debe de estar en tu colección literaria ya que no solamente explora uno de los tantos orígenes del JOKER, sino tambien la relación que este tiene con BATMAN.
Ademas, nos presenta un acontecimiento que cambiara por mucho tiempo la vida de Barbara Gordon.
Vale la pena tenerlo.
Este es un "Most-Read" para cualquier fanático de Batman o de Joker pero creo que conviene leer un poco más Batman antes de llegar a este punto yo recomiendo Batman: Year One y Batman: The Long Halloween.
El envío llegó antes de lo planeado y en excelentes condiciones

It's a pretty short graphic novel, probably one of the shortest out there, but the story is so well written and the characters so well formed it doesn't need to be any longer.
Not to spoil it for anyone, but the final few panels in the book are so well composed, there is little dialog in them, but the imagery of these panels paints such a powerful story. To a point that you can come to your own conclusion as to what the fate of Joker is in the end....
[SPOILER: Did Batman kill him?]
So, needless to say, though I’m a fan of the comic book genre, I’m not familiar with the typical structures and devices of a graphic novel and I have to say I did find it a bit odd.
Before getting to that though I should say I was grabbed by the story. It is an interesting, daring take on the origins of Batman’s arch nemesis, The Joker. The novel downplays the maniacal, blood-thirsty villain I’ve seen the Joker portrayed as before, and instead shows how any average joe could become a crazed psychopath after just one bad day.
To humanise one of the most caricatured of characters was a brave decision that was deftly achieved.
Avoiding spoilers, it is difficult to discuss my feelings on how the story plays out. But it does leave plenty of room for interpretation and thought. This is not necessarily a bad thing. Indeed, for many, it is exactly why The Killing Joke is such a classic work.
But as I mentioned earlier, I was slightly put off by how the story was told. The drawings and colours were fantastic and wonderful to drink in. But I do feel a lot of weight is put on the reader to decipher the writers intentions. Again, I don’t want to spoil anything for future readers but the graphic novel could have done with a bit more elaboration on certain scenes and points (and I’m not just referring to the ending).
Whereas a regular novel is often cut and shortened dramatically in a cinematic reworking, in order to hold the viewers attentions, it is clear that the opposite would have the be the case for a graphic novel like this, otherwise you would end up with a very short film indeed.
I should stress this is not a criticism as such, although it did cause some dismay on my part. As I said though, I’m not familiar with how graphic novels normal tell their tale and this may be the usual structure.
Also there is a fantastic artwork in a very unique style, which shows of perfectly the grim and twisted world it takes place in.
Much better then its movie counterpart, a little on the short side however.
Overall it's highly recommended, a compact but memorable comic.
The introduction by Tim Sale and the afterword by Brian Bolland are written with sincerity and are totally worth a read. It also includes a morally questionable short story (8 pages) written and drawn by Brian Bolland that is surprisingly good and effective short story, even though it's pretty shocking and off-putting (even more than the actual Killing Joke story) as a boy implies that he would be ready to tie up a little girl and do perverted things to her just to ruin the lives of her family. But it's still a pretty neat extra. The book also includes a double page with some sketches for the Killing Joke as well as for the extra short story and every picture includes a caption from the artist himself. It's good as long as it lasts: I would have liked to see even more character concepts and sketches, but I'm glad that they included some of them anyway.
The overall design of the book is black and beautiful, the iconic art on the dust jacket (which you'll really get only after reading the book)and the black-and-purple hard cover art are just as good as it gets. I think this might be the best comic I'll ever encounter. Or maybe that's going to be Watchmen after I get my hand on that.
I assume it must be good for a comic, but I found it disappointingly short: the story was over before it even began. It felt like a prologue.
I've seen other versions of the graphic novels that have a slightly more interesting and warped colourscheme but this is a much simpler colour scheme that just tells things how they are. It works nicely.
I'd highly recommend giving this a read or watching the movie, both are shot for shot, word for word the same. :)
Highly recommended as either a first read of The Killing Joke or for people who have read the original.
