In preparation for the upcoming Killing Joke animated movie, how about a storytime of the original 1988 coloring (I usually only ever see the deluxe version here)
I found it on kat, just search Killing joke and one of the first results has scans of multiple versions
At least wait until the triggering scene
Have I mentioned I hate street signs?
My personal Favorite is Arkham Asylum, but then again I'm a huge Morrisonfag
And that's it. Movie comes out this Summer
Well honestly, despite being known as the superhero with the best stories, I'd say most of Batman's "greatest hits" kind of ride the coattails of their protagonist more than they actually achieve praise on their own merits.
Regardless, TDKR is one of the best comics (not just Batman comics) ever. Even with what it did to the character/industry, it's still a great example of comics storytelling.
They're crawfish. You should try them sometime. All you have to do is break them in half and pull the tailmeat out with your teeth.
Moore dislikes it for being the exact type of story he hated bringing in: needlessly dark while carrying little to no true depth/thematic exploration. It's got rape for the sake of rape, a bunch of terrible things happen to Gordon for the sake of terrible things happening to Gordon, and the scant amount of meaningful writing--the analysis of the relationship between Batman and Joker--lasts for about 2 pages (and does not cover any new ground, merely repeating previous ideas in Moore's own voice).
He's absolutely right that it was a failure.
I prefer the paralysis theory.
Bats falls on the pin (>>79079860)
, but it only sticks in his glove. It lingers on him looking at his hand, but we don't see what it is.
He later pricks Joker's shoulder in the final page (>>79079949) , at which the Joker freezes standing up, at which his laugh suddenly cuts off.
Actually, he did say he liked David Hayter's script for the Watchmen movie, but he wanted nothing to do with helping make it because of how much Hollywood fucked him over the years.
I've never seen a source for that.It constantly gets repeated here on /co/, but the closest I've seen to verification is that Dave Gibbons, Watchmen's artist, actually said he loved it
>and the scant amount of meaningful writing--the analysis of the relationship between Batman and Joker-
The main focus of the book is a character study of the Joker, which it has in spades.
>all those pictures of her crying and in pain
>she doesn't remember what happened to her
>as soon as she sees bruce, she clutches him and starts crying
>what he DID
yup, no rape in this comic
>Moore dislikes it for being the exact type of story he hated bringing in: needlessly dark while carrying little to no true depth/thematic exploration
No, he hated it because of the copycat bullshit and grim psychopathic mindset of everything that followed.
That was Morrison's opinion. There is someone more eloquently than me wrote that batman will never kill joker. Here is it:
"bruce believes that human life is sacred and anyone can be saved and he had literally never seen joker more human and vulnerable than the end of tkj so why on earth would he finally choose to kill him then, of all times. he would not"
She had already been Batgirl and ended her career by the time that The Killing Joke came out. It's a big reason why DC didn't really mind paralyzing her - she was seen by a lot of people as a relic of the Silver Age.
This page right here will always confuse me because if Joker can stick his fingers THROUGH Batman's mask's eyeholes, then they're not white lenses...they're just holes...so where does the white come from?
why would anyone not want a storytime?
Even if you hate something so much, if others aren't exposed to it they cannot come to hate it like you.
If you want people to just hate (or like) things like you because that's how you feel about them and everyone else should agree with you I only have one question for you:
