During Dewey’s readathon I wanted something quick to read and so Johnny suggested I try this particular Batman comic and I thought why not.
I was pleasantly surprised by this novel because I felt that Batman and Joker were at their best. In this novel Batman is trying to bring the Joker in and there is another player on the board that keeps Batman busy from this goal. However, you get to see how Joker is working through this in order to harm people in the city and Batman himself. The madness that Joker brings is always genius and this book was really great about showing not just Joker’s madness but also his true feelings on being the enemy to Batman.
There is a scene in this book where the Joker and Batman are discussing why they are against each other. Batman wants answers from the Joker. The Joker replies “I don’t hate you ’cause I’m crazy… I’m crazy ’cause I hate you.”
This line is so powerful and shows the true madness of the Joker and what has been going on all these years. I personally think this is the best line and story between Batman and the Joker and I will never forget the line in this comic because it means everything.
