"Originally published in a single magazine form in Joe the Barbarian 1-8."
Presents the origin stories of two of the Dark Knight's foes: Scarecrow, who terrorizes Gotham by manipulating fear, and Two-Face, the one-time champion of Gotham City who, after he is disfigured by acid, becomes a homicidal maniac.
Collecting BATMAN: DARK VICTORY #0-13, this epic continues the story of THE LONG HALLOWEEN. It is early in Batman's crimefighting career, when James Gordon, Harvey Dent, and the vigilante himself were all just beginning their roles as Gotham's protectors. Once a town controlled by organized crime, Gotham City suddenly finds itself being run by lawless freaks, such as Poison Ivy, Mr. Freeze, and the Joker. Witnessing his city's dark evolution, the Dark Knight completes his transformation into the city's greatest defender. He faces multiple threats, including the seeming return of a serial killer called Holiday. Batman's previous investigation of Holiday's killings revealed that more than one person was responsible for the murders. So the question remains: who is committing Holiday's crimes this time? And how many will die before Batman learns the truth?

"You will be blown away."-AIN'T IT COOL NEWS Brian Azzarello brings to THE JOKER all the visceral intensity and criminal insight that has made his Vertigo graphic novel series 100 BULLETS one of the most critically acclaimed and award-winning series of all time. This original graphic novel tells the story of one very dark night in Gotham City. The Joker has been mysteriously released from Arkham Asylum, and he's none too happy about what's happened to his Gotham City rackets while he's been "away." What follows is a harrowing night of revenge, murder and manic crime as only The Joker can deliver it, as he brutally takes back his stolen assets from The Penguin, The Riddler, Two-Face, Killer Croc and, of course, The Batman, and heaven help them all. Told through the eyes of his loyal (but naive) henchman Jonny Frost, JOKER is a true noir crime novel: a harrowing journey into a city of rain-soaked streets, dirty sheets and nothing but bad choices.

Publisher: BAO Publishing
Potete fare finta che questo sia solo un altro fumetto scritto da Rick Remender, che è solo uno dei migliori sceneggiatori in attività negli USA. Potete fare finta che sia solo una prova d'autore magistrale di Sean Gordon Murphy, uno degli artisti più hot e desiderati di questo decennio. Ma non sareste migliori di Led Dent, l'agente iperconnesso al soldo del perverso Flak, dominatore di quello che resta dell'umanità dopo che l'umanità si è consumata in una folle impennata verso il privilegio, creando un divario inumano tra chi può e chi non ha nulla. Questo secondo volume conclude la storia ed è forse il più importante atto di denuncia contro l'anestetizzazione dei media che abbiamo mai pubblicato. Potremmo non dirvelo e lasciare che il suo sovversivo messaggio su quanto valga la pena, sempre, credere nell'amore vi arrivasse all'improvviso, di sorpresa, ma vogliamo che quando la bomba deflagrerà nei vostri cuori e nelle vostre menti abbiate gli occhi bene aperti. Questo fumetto vi farà male. Questo fumetto vi farà bene.
