Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Every Batman fan knows that the Joker sliced off his own face and that his remedy for this tragedy (?) was to wear an equally ghoulish mask. Now that comic's favorite psychopath is back in violent action, it's time to celebrate with a trade paperback original collectors set of Batman: Death of the Family accompanied by your very own rubber replica of Joker's alternative to plastic surgery. A major Batman installment with a perfect and perfectly eerie accompaniment.

From the Publisher
"This is a clever and sophisticated Batman—with a dark, edgy, and thought-provoking narrative ably abetted by Capullo's pulpish, detailed art. Readers will find it hard to put down."—Publishers Weekly, starred

"A+. The hero's got personality (and is unafraid to release a quip as sharp as a Batarang), a horde of supervillains, gumption to spare and a whole host of high-tech gadgetry to suitably impress longtime fans and those new to the Dark Knight."—USA Today

"[Writer Scott Snyder] pulls from the oldest aspects of the Batman myth, combines it with sinister-comic elements from the series' best period, and gives the whole thing terrific forward-spin by setting up an honest-to-gosh mystery for Batman to solve."—Entertainment Weekly
