The Joker is truly despicable,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Batman Volume 3: Death of the Family HC (The New 52) (Batman (DC Comics)) (Hardcover)
I think graphic novels need to be a careful combination of story, pace and mood. The text and imagery needs to support these in suitable proportions to make the medium work. This is an excellent example of the genre. The dialog is realistic, the energy is maintained well and the imagery is superb. All the elements intertwine nicely.
The storyline is well constructed, keeping you guessing and pondering in various places. The Joker is once again revealed as a despicable and truly disturbing character, leading to a quite horrifying showdown.
My main issue, and the reason I docked a star (though I would have preferred half a star), is that it feels like it ends rather suddenly... but that's just me... and perhaps this will mean I get more enjoyment from the other "Death of the Family" book which I believe is written more from Joker's perspective...
If you like Batman / Joker stories, I'm pretty sure this won't disappoint. If you're new to the genre, this is a great place to start.

The other death of the family book is actually all about how joker manages to capture each of the bat-family in each of their respective comics( teen titans, nightwing, suicide squad) it is still really good though
