Batman: The Man Who Laughs returns fans to the origin of the Dark Knight’s battles with the diabolical Clown Prince of Crime: a villain calling himself the Joker.
Summary of the Book
When a series of murders rocks all of Gotham, the Batman quickly swings into action. All the victims have had their faces contorted into a strange and unnerving grin, a ghastly calling card left by a murderer who calls himself the Joker. Batman must quickly find where this madman is hiding, for if he doesn’t, more lives are at stake. However, his usual methods of deduction aren’t going to help the World’s Greatest Detective, for his new adversary doesn’t seem to have any particular agenda. Who is this maniac and where did he come from? The Caped Crusader might just learn that to the Joker, there is no greater thrill than vexing someone he thinks is just as mad as he is: the Dark Knight himself. Witness the stunning origin of the battles between Batman and his nemesis: the Joker, in this graphic novel collection bringing together The Man Who Laughs and Detective Comics #784-786, guest starring the Green Lantern Alan Scott.
