Batman: The Man Who Laughs

Batman: The Man Who Laughs - Steve Bird, Aaron Sowd, Ed Brubaker, Doug Mahnke, Patrick Zircher I had a few people suggesting this book, so I went ahead and looked it up. Even though I see some geeks dislike it or nitpick at it, I thought it was pretty good. You get two stories here. One is a Joker origin story, and a second story that features the Golden Age Green Lantern. This does serve as a bit of a sequel to Alan Moore's "The Killing Joke" (which I learned Moore disavowed saying he did not intend for his story to become canonical). Still, these were some pretty good stories from the early days of Batman, which is a time period I tend to enjoy. Good story from Brubaker, and I did really like the nitty gritty art. If you liked "The Killing Joke" or "Year One," you may like this as well.
