Title: “Batman: The Killing Joke”
Author: Alan Moore
Blurb: “Legendary writer Alan Moore redefined the super-hero with Watchmen and V for Vendetta. In Batman: The Killing Joke, he takes on the origin of comics’ greatest super-villain, The Joker — and changes Batman’s world forever.”
Review: “Buy this so you can see what an over-rated book looks and feels like.”

Footnote: We’re going to guess that the ranking has something to do with that new trailer for supervillain dumping ground Suicide Squad — Starring! Jared! Leto! As! The! Joker! — which has the Millennial Fanboys among us soiling their DC-licensed Underoos. And while we will grant that the movie does hold pulpy promise, it exists in the same universe as Ben Affleck’s Batman, and we’re definitely reserving judgment whether that’s a universe worth visiting.
