With the announcement of legendary Batman voice cast Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill voicing Batman and Joker in the 2016 animated film adaptation of Alan Moore and Brian Bolland's 1988 one shot graphic novel "Batman: The Killing Joke", Londyn and her co-host Adam Silverstein go in depth and discuss why this comic remains an iconic story within the Batman mythos today. "The Killing Joke" still stands as perhaps the best origin story for The Joker, contains one of the most tragic moments in DC Comics history with the shooting and paralyzation of Barbara Gordon aka Batgirl and presents a brilliant underlying tale of the ultimate battle between good and evil within the Dark Knight and the Clown Prince of Crime. Listen in and learn why "Batman: The Killing Joke" is my personal favorite Batman graphic novel and a triumph in the comic book medium. Listen as we talk all about it on this episode of History of the Batman with Londyn! Presented by Meltdown Comics! Produced by Mason Booker and Adam Silverstein.
