Batman: The Killing JokeI should start by saying that prior to reading this I was not a fan of DC Comics or Batman. I've always found Batman to be too simple to warrant the title of a superhero. I mean, let's be honest: He's really just a rich ninja with a lot of cool toys. But this book changed my mind on Batman and DC Comics.

The novel is set in Gotham and features three parallel story lines. The main plot involves the Joker shooting a family member of Gotham's famed Commissioner James Gordon, the Commissioner's subsequent kidnapping and the terror that ensues.
