Ed Brubaker is amazing. I picked this up only for the name recognition and wasn't let down in any way. The first story of the trade is somewhat of a sequel to Miller's Year One and I actually liked it better. A young version of Batman and Jim Gordon take on the joker for the first time. Classic stuff. The second half is a great murder mystery and involces the golden age Green Lantern, Alan Scott. It was awesome and would love to read another team-up with Bats and GL. Zircher & Mahnke's art was perfect. Loved it!! Great stuff!!

If your a Batman or Joker fan, then you gotta get this! Not only is the artwork and coloring amazing but it's an essential part of the joker and batman relationship. One of my favorite graphic novels <3

A remake on the first encounter Batman has with the Joker. A fun and enjoyable story however, somewhat juvenile.

Nowhere nearly as cool as I wanted it to be. At the risk of giving too much away, the motivation behind the Joker's crime spree kinda ruined it for me -- revenge is so remarkably . . . plebian. Solid storytelling, great art, and a commendable effort to bring the Joker's first appearance in sync with continuity, but it just didn't work for me.

Great retelling of Batman's first encounter with his greatest foe!  A gripping read, and it includes a bonus story involving the Green Lantern of the Golden Age as well
