5.0 out of 5 stars The Last Laugh, 29 April 2014
This review is from: Batman Volume 3: Death of the Family HC (The New 52) (Batman (DC Comics)) (Hardcover)
This story runs through issues #13-17 of the New 52 Batman comic, all collected as Batman Volume 3: Death of the Family HC (The New 52) (Batman (DC Comics)). This is a superb story, and you don't need to read the crossover issues - all collected as The Joker: Death of the Family HC (The New 52) - in order to appreciate it. This is the Batman The Killing Joke Special Ed HC for the New 52, but with a much better punchline than the original. There's really not much more to be said; other than that it has superb scripting and artwork.

I have been critical of a number of the New 52 Batman volumes and series, but this is definitely one of the best, and head and shoulders above the two preceding volumes. It has a beginning, middle and at least two endings, one for the Joker and one for the `Family'.

THE SPOILER ZONE

PS: I was expecting a dead Robin at the end of this story, considering its title. Imagine my surprise when I read Batman Incorporated Volume 2: Gotham's Most Wanted HC (The New 52) first...
