This is hands down the best comic series I have ever read (and I have read quite a bit of them). It shows how truly disturbed the Joker is, and I love it.

Overall this was a great book. It ties in perfectly with the main story arc for Batman: Death of the Family. If you are a fan of the Batman Family I recommend this book and the main book as well. If you only like one particular character I would recommend getting the main book and the Death of the Family volume for that character.

In this storyline, we are faced with a Joker that has not been written so maniacal and psychotic since Death IN the Family and the Killing Joke. The Clown Prince of Crime is at his worst and now targets all of the Bat Family who he deems as Batman's weaknesses.
