Batman The Killing Joke Read & Download å PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook For the first time the Joker's origin is revealed in this tale of insanity and human perseverance Looking to prove that any man can be pushed past his breaking point. All it takes is one bad day to reduce the sanest man alive to lunacy That s how far the world is from where I am Just one bad day Now this was good and I mean good It s such a simple idea but so real and powerful I mean one bad day is all it takes One push one snap one descent into chaos and it s over Once you ve crossed that threshold then things will never be the same again And the Joker being the sly and brilliant villain that he is wants to share the experience with the world He wants to show humanity that they are not that far from him The first man he wants to reduce is the stalwart Commissioner Gordon But I think we all know who is intended victim actually is The Joker was once normal He had a girlfriend he had a job but the world shitted on him somewhat chronic And like many people he was forced to turn to crime he was forced to break society s rules in order to survive That s where it all began That first step into the darkness led to many other steps down the road of corruption It wasn t long before petty crime turned to murder and butchery The Joker became ruined and lost himself in his nasty deeds This is a great origin story one that fully lives up to the character immense personality Allan More totally nails it THERE IS NO SANITY CLAUSE SO WHEN YOU FIND YOURSELF LOCKED ONTO AN UNPLEASANT TRAIN OF THOUGHT HEADING FOR THE PLACES IN YOUR PAST WHERE THE SCREAMING IS UNBEARABLE REMEMBER THERE S ALWAYS MADNESS MADNESS IS THE EMERGENCY EXIT YOU CAN JUST STEP OUTSIDE AND CLOSE THE DOOR ON ALL THOSE DREADFUL THINGS THAT HAPPENED YOU CAN LOCK THEM AWAY FOREVER And the ending it s all about the ending The Joker s personality is infectious At least he wants it to be He s always tried to bring down the good He ruined Harvey Dent and he has always wanted to ruin the bat And he just may have The end is suggestive of two things firstly Batman strangling the Joker in one final heroic act there s some irony in that sentence secondly Batman descending to the Jokers level and embracing the insanity of one bad dayI ll leave you with this picture and see if you can decideFacebook Twitter Insta Academia
