I think this is the third or fourth time I am reading The Killing Joke, and the sheer ingenuity of it will never cease to amaze me. It's a short, straight-forward and sinister story that must have taken a lot of guts to write. While not perfect (too much Joker, not enough Batman), no one can argue the fact that the Killing Joke is an all-time classic.

One of the best! It shows how Batgirl becomes Oracle. I loved how this was indirectly mentioned in Issue 0 of Batgirl in the New 52.
