> Crap this was an amazing issue, one of my favorite batman and more importantantly joker stories ever, the nods to the past were brilliant as joker does away with his past in the comic, morrison does away with the past classic joker stories adn metamorphasises the character in both the story and th way he is handled by writers. Bravo Grant, just amazing!!

It was indeed extraordinary, with some magnificent turns of phrase ("The Satire years, before Camp and New Homicidal") and word-images. IMHO It works better as an illustrated text story where you can imagine the events better than the artist could hope to capture them. (Not terribly fond of the VERY CGI bits, but...)

However, that being said, I do wonder how other writers and artists will deal with this "new look and new attitude" Joker. Given Paul Dini's magnificent depiction in Detective 826, this new Joker needs time to develop and discover if he will work in a standard comic presentation.

Tough to read, but once I finished it I was like wow. Felt like I was in Arkham with Joker. And he's always been drawn with tons of different looks. Everyones going crazy, saying this will get retconned. What exactly was altered? Remember he got shot in the face. Hence the new stitchs, damage to his vocal cords.
