Following a gripping prologue introducing Barbara Gordon’s heroic adventures alongside Batman as Batgirl, “Batman: The Killing Joke” stays true to the authentic tale that has held fans’ imaginations for nearly three decades – spotlighting the birth of a Super-Villain, the fortitude of a Super Hero and the punchline that will leave you speechless.
