Batman: The Killing Joke by Alan Moore
In an attempt to prove a point that “one bad day” is enough to drive anyone to insanity, Alan Moore’s The Killing Joke showcases the Joker in one of his most iconic and diabolical stories to date. Originally written as a standalone story separate to the official Batman timeline, this book gained such a cult following that its events were quickly adopted as canon to the Batman lore and served as one of the inspirations for the 2019 film Joker. Strong nerves are required whilst reading.
