A+ story ...,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Batman Vol. 3: Death of the Family (The New 52) (Hardcover)
I've constantly been wondering what happened to Joker since Detective Comics #1, this book answers that question :) This particular book only covers Batman's side of the story whereas The Joker: Death of the Family neatly combines all of the other applicable tie-ins. After reading both, I can see that this one works well as a stand-alone book but then is greatly enhanced by the tie-ins. If you're looking for a quick read that covers the whole story arc, this one does just fine. But if you're wondering how the rest of the Batman family got to where they did by the end of this story buy The Joker as well.
The art work is masterful and Snyder does not disappoint as usual. A+ for me.
