In Batman: The Killing Joke, he takes on the origin of comics' greatest super-villain, The Joker, and changes Batman's world forever.ONE BAD DAY.According to the grinning engine of madness and mayhem known as the Joker, that's all that separates the sane from the psychotic.

Can he finally put an end to the cycle of bloodlust and lunacy that links these two iconic foes before it leads to its fatal conclusion? And as the horrifying origin of the Clown Prince of Crime is finally revealed, will the thin line that separates Batman's nobility and the Joker's insanity snap once and for all?Legendary writer Alan Moore redefined the superhero with Watchmen and V For Vendetta.
