It is set in a timeline that is not considered as canonical in the current DC Universe continuity (it and its predecessor are said to occur in Earth-31). It differs drastically in style from the original. In fact, it seems to be the antithesis of . It is much more brutal, fatalistic, and is pervaded by a sense of hopelessness, particularly in the third and last issue where, if it is at all possible, it turns even darker. With its future setting, it is a grim and acerbic commentary about a world and a disillusioned public that has lost all hope in heroes. The miniseries received mixed reactions from critics and fans alike when it first came out--it still does--but had more than robust sales, fueled no doubt by its controversial storyline and its angry handling and treatment. Ultimately, will always be judged by, and with, .

Alan Moore & Brian Bolland | DC Comics | CBR | ISBN 1401216676 | Canada, Deluxe Edition | Mar 19 2008 | 64 Pages (c2c) | 52.03 MB

is an influential one-shot graphic novel written by Alan Moore (of fame), drawn by Brian Bolland, featuring the superhero and title character Batman and his archenemy the Joker, and published by DC Comics in 1988. The story would affect the mainstream Batman continuity in that it features (spoiler alert!--but of course you know this already) the shooting and crippling of Barbara Gordon by the Joker, an event which would lead her to adopt the role and identity of Oracle, a vital source of information for Batman and other superheroes. The plot revolves around a largely psychological battle between Batman and the Joker, who has escaped from Arkham Asylum. The Joker intends to drive Gotham City Police Commissioner James Gordon insane to prove that the most upstanding citizen can go mad after having "one bad day". Along the way, the Joker has flashbacks to his early life, gradually explaining his possible origins--possible because he himself is unsure: "If I'm going to have a past, I prefer it to be multiple choice!" It is a tale of insanity and human perseverance, one of the darkest ever in the entire Batman mythos. This insanity is further explored in the subtext that Batman may be just as insane as the criminals and super-villains he faces, only manifesting it in a different manner. Alan Moore sums it best: "Psychologically Batman and the Joker are mirror images of each other." And such dichotomy between Batman and the Joker is never more creatively explored, either in words or in pictures--or both--than in .
