Wow. This was completely dark. I did enjoy it overall. The Joker parts and backstory was really interesting. We still don't find out his name but still get a little bit into his life BEFORE his persona of The Joker comes to be. I actually felt bad for him. I thought his sinister semi-plot was pretty neat. There was some nudity in this story. Which was really off putting for me a bit. I didn't mind it. I wasn't offended but my childlike nostalgia for Batman was thrown off when I saw it. My immediate reaction was "WHOA!" Just didn't expect it. What brought my rating down for this book was the fact that I don't feel it was completely wrapped up enough for me in the end. Also, the subplot for Batgirl was in my opinion not necessary. I understand that she was intertwined into the story for a reason and I get it. But I am not a Batgirl fan and I could have done without. It was still a good story and I would recommend it to any DC fan.

Really hard to stomache at times and outdated in its portrayal of women, let's be honest but truly some of the best dialogue writing I have ever read and that ending is truly fascinating.
