STARRING: Mark Hamill, Kevin Conroy
Of all Batman’s nemeses, The Joker ranks as numero uno.
In the animated world, Mark Hamill (yes, Luke Skywalker) has been The Joker voice of choice, and he’s at his manic best in this take on one of the most highly-rated Batman graphic novels. Adhering closely to the source in both story and look, The Killing Joke sees Batman’s arch enemy kidnapping Commissioner Gordon, aiming to prove that it just takes one really crappy day to induce madness. Batman’s on the case, of course, but there’s a bigger picture, whereby The Joker challenges Batman’s very view of what he is and does. This is gripping and violent stuff, whether you’ve experienced the comic or not.
