I haven't read a comic book in forever, so when a friend said something about the batman who laughs being his favorite comic I figured if I ever get a chance I'll look it up. Saw a hardcover edition at a good price while just browsing at other items and figured what the heck. Wow I was surprised. Not only was the artwork great, the story was interesting, tight, dark, and didn't feel like it was written by a Junior High Schooler. The hardcover edition I got is great for the price and came in perfect condition ( despite my mailmans best efforts to make it not so. Might go into top 10 favorite batman storylines.
