This book is a highly detailed, chronological account of how it all unfolded. I’m surprised I actually enjoyed a book which pulls from various media sources
This title presents Harley and The Joker in their teenage incarnation. A strange choice for criminal characters in an abusive relationship in a YA focused book.
The Dark Knights, a twisted version of Batman, comes out between worlds. Batman is trapped in the Dark Multiverse and the Justice League must find the metals.
A graphic novel which culminates the story-line where Batman (Bruce Wayne) and Catwoman (Selina Kyle) are set to get married
The Joker rebrand himself as the White Knight of Gotham, the man who will shine a light on all the corruption which is dragging down the city to benefit the few
Batman: Preludes to the Wedding by Tim Seeley is a collection of stories where side characters in the Batman universe react to his upcoming wedding to Catwoman.
The Victim Syndicate has turned Gotham against Batman in protest. They also threaten to release criminals from Arkham unless Batman unmasks himself on live TV
Mr. King lets The Joker and The Riddler to shine in this issue. I have never found The Riddler to be much of a challenge in previous incarnations, but this Riddler is a true equal to The Joker, just as manipulating, devious and evil.
I enjoyed the stories were the fourth wall is being broken and Harley is out in the real world, my favorite was the story where she goes to Comic-Con, it was very funny and I’m sure there were many gags I didn’t even get (bonus points for including Bruce Timm and Paul Dini).
The tale of the man who one day would become The Joker is excellent. I don’t know if Mr. Moore intended to contribute this much to the DC mythology (the largest contribution is that of Barbara Gordon’s tale) but in this story he did.
