The Joker: Death of the Family by Scott Snyder, 456 pages
Batman and the Joker go together like Tom and Jerry, so when the Joker feels that Batman's sidekicks are slowing him, Joker takes it upon himself to turn Batman into a solo act once again. In "Death of the Family," readers are treated to the Joker's triumphant return to Gotham after a year hiatus, in order to match wits with Batman again, by targeting his sidekicks. One by one, he targets Robin (both current and all former), Batgirl, and even Catwoman, all because the Joker is 20 kinds of crazy. Can Batman overcome his greatest foe once again?
Yes, because he's Batman. I really liked this story. The Joker yet again entertains me, though truth be told I may or may not have read all of his lines with Mark Hamill's voice in mind. Also, Joker's own face as a mask...it was cool. That is all.
