The man who laughs escapes Arkham Asylum (again!) and decides to 'make a point' or example of Jim Gordon and his poor daughter Barbara, which of course, leads to the inevitable showdown with Batman.
Some of the scenes are quite shocking, especially involving Barbara and the torturous carnival trip Jim Gordon is then subjected to.
The artwork here is simply stunning, and having not seen the original I can only think this is an improvement - I only have the liner notes to attest to that mind!
Whilst the quality of this classic comic cannot be denied, I personally consider the price to be a bit much for how much pages you get. True, you get a foreward and an afterword and a few original sketches...but who really cares!? It's not worth the extra cost! The 10 page 'Innocent Guy' mini story, whilst excellently drawn, is a bit strange and pretty unspectacular story-wise and is again more of pointless extra in my opinion than anything that enhances your reading experience or the comic you've just read.
Still, nothing can deny this is a game-changing comic in the Batman world, and an essential comic for fans of the Clown Prince of Crime and of course The Dark Knight.
It's Batman with the Joker. In any equation that makes me happy
Written whilst sat in my batman boxer shorts and socks.
I really need to get a life!
