"Of course this is going to be here. It's the gold standard for every comic that's followed it. A tremendous deconstruction of the super-hero genre and is just the ultimate in thought-provoking reading."
"The most exhaustively-researched graphic novel of all time. And one of the most intensely human tales ever written. It's portrait of the descent into utter madness is truly terrifying to behold. Moore again strikes gold."
"Grant Morrison throws his hat into the Batman mythos ring by creating another story rife with the synergy between Batman and his worst enemies. It certainly doesn't hurt that Dave McKean is doing the art here either."
"This collection is terrific, but what stands this out more than any other collection is BATMAN - THE KILLING JOKE, which not only gives the definitive origin of Batman's most horrific enemy but represents the greatest one-shot comic in history."
"I know what you're thinking.. Moore AGAIN? But we're talking about the best here... and he simply IS the best. And this volume of his run on this comic is by far the best of them all. It fluidly mixes horror with one of the most touching love stories ever in printed form."
