Overview

A #1 New York Times bestseller!

One year ago, the Joker limped off the streets of Gotham, mutilated and scarred when someone had taken the pale white skin right off of his face.  

But now, the Dark Knight’s greatest foe has returned but for once, Batman doesn’t seem to be his target. Instead, the Joker turns his vile hatred towards Commissioner Gordon, Alfred, Robin, Nightwing, Batgirl, Red Hood and Red Robin … the only family Bruce Wayne has left. The Clown Prince of Crime will unleash his most unpredictable, vicious and psychotic assault ever on everyone Batman holds dear.

Can Batman stop his arch-rival’s most deranged assault ever? Or will the cost of a deadly secret be a family member’s life?  

#1 New York Times best-selling creators Scott Snyder (AMERICAN VAMPIRE) and Greg Capullo (Spawn) present the long-awaited return of the Joker, as he unleashes his most terrifying, personal assault ever on the Dark Knight. BATMAN: DEATH OF THE FAMILY collects BATMAN #13-17 along with backup stories illustrated by award-winning artist Jock (BATMAN: THE BLACK MIRROR).

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This is a book you need to read. Whether you're a fan of comics or not. If you're a fan of good storytelling and can buy into the conceit that a man dressed as a bat can make a difference in the world, then there's no better book for you than this one."—Huffington Post

"One of the best Batman runs in the history of the character. The fact that two of the biggest names in the industry are handling the return of the Joker is just icing on the cake."—IGN

When last seen, the Joker had his original scary smile and the rest of his face sliced off; now this smirking fiend is back to wreak his gleeful hatred on the good people of Gotham City. This 456-page edition contains Catwoman 13-14; Batgirl 13-16; Suicide Squad 14-15; Batman and Robin 15-16; Nightwing 15-16; Detective Comics 15-16; Red Hood and The Outlaws 15-16; and Teen Titans 15-16. An adventure-packed graphic novel by rising young writing star Scott Snyder; now in trade paperback.
