内容紹介

A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

Presented for the first time with stark, stunning new coloring by Bolland, BATMAN: THE KILLING JOKE is Alan Moore's unforgettable meditation on the razor-thin line between sanity and insanity, heroism and villainy, comedy and tragedy.
 
According to the grinning engine of madness and mayhem known as The Joker, that's all that separates the sane from the psychotic. Freed once again from the confines of Arkham Asylum, he's out to prove his deranged point. And he¿s going to use Gotham City's top cop, Commissioner Jim Gordon, and his brilliant and beautiful daughter Barbara to do it.

Now Batman must race to stop his archnemesis before his reign of terror claims two of the Dark Knight's closest friends. Can he finally put an end to the cycle of bloodlust and lunacy that links these two iconic foes before it leads to its fatal conclusion? And as the horrifying origin of the Clown Prince of Crime is finally revealed, will the thin line that separates Batman's nobility and The Joker's insanity snap once and for all?

Legendary writer Alan Moore redefined the super-hero with WATCHMEN and V FOR VENDETTA. In BATMAN: THE KILLING JOKE, he takes on the origin of comics' greatest super-villain, The Joker —and changes Batman's world forever.

Stunningly illustrated, BATMAN: THE KILLING JOKE, THE DELUXE EDITION has been lushly re-colored by artist Brian Bolland, presenting his original vision of this modern classic for the first time.

レビュー

"Easily the greatest Joker story ever told, BATMAN: THE KILLING JOKE is also one of Alan Moore's finest works. If you've read it before, go back and read it again. You owe it to yourself."—IGN

"...a genuinely chilling portrayal of Batman's greatest foe."—Booklist

バットマンの宿敵ジョーカーの誕生をアメコミの巨匠アラン・ムーアが描いたということですから、バットマンのファンであれば読んでみたくなる1作だと思います。ジョーカーの誕生というと、中途半端なストーリーでは納得できないということになってしまいますが、この作品は簡潔かつ説得力あり!派手でカラフルな画も不思議な魅力があり、狂気の世界にドンドン引き込まれてしまいます。ゴードンの役回りにはかなり同情してしまいました。

初出は、1988年。旧装版は左下のプリントロゴのデザインが違っていたりします。
翻訳版もあるのですが、かなり値上がりしているので、こちらの英語新装版はお得。

とても重たい話ですが、80年代の作品にしては絵も綺麗で、比較的すっきりと読みやすいです。
バットマンの宿敵・ジョーカーの出自については諸説ありますが、この本ではバットマンのせいでジョーカーが生まれてしまった設定となっています。

バットマンの歴史においてこの本の占める位置としては、ゴードン本部長の義娘バーバラ・ゴードンこと「バットガール」が、何故車椅子の「オラクル」にならなければいけなくなったか、その原因となる事件が起こるキーポイント作品。
ジョーカーの悲哀も丁寧に描かれていますが、バットガールを好きな方にとっては、ジョーカーに腹の底から怒りを覚えずにはいられない本です。

アメリカの銃社会と性犯罪に対して、巨匠アラン・ムーアが大いなる波紋を投げかける名作。

とある精神病院に二人の男がいた
ある晩、二人はもうこんな場所にはいられないと腹をくくった、脱走することにしたんだ
それで屋上に登ってみると、狭い隙間のすぐ向こうが隣の建物で……
さらに向こうには、月光に照らされた夜の街が広がっていた……自由の世界だ!
で、最初の奴は難なく飛んで隣の建物に移った。だが、もう一人のヤツはどうしても跳べなかった。
そうとも……落ちるのが怖かったんだ
その時最初のヤツがひらめいた。
ヤツは言った「おい、俺は懐中電灯を持ってる! この光で橋を架けてやるから、歩いて渡って来い!」
だが二人目のヤツは首を横に振って……怒鳴り返した

「てめぇ、オレがイカれてるとでも思ってんのか!」

「どうせ、途中でスイッチ切っちまうつもりだろ!」

hahahahahahahahahaha

5つ星のうち HASH(0x85276300) One REALLY bad day. 2008/7/14
投稿者 trashcanman - (Amazon.com)
形式: ハードカバー Amazonで購入
"The Killing Joke" is widely considered to be the be-all-end-all of Joker stories, so what better way to pay homage to the greatest comic book villain of all time near the eve of his re-unveiling in The Dark Knight than by reviewing his definitive story? This is the comic that (sort of) revealed the origin of The Clown Prince of Crime, humanizing him to an extent never before, and truly examined -with pictures rather than words- the antagonistic symbiosis that exists between Joker and his arch nemesis, The Batman. A beloved Gotham regular will never be the same and another will be put through hell before this story is done. Oh, and there are creepy little henchmidgets as well. Gotta love the henchmidgets.

The art is outstanding, the storytelling superb, and the character examinations are vital to understanding both combatants. The "one bad day" premise highlights the "two sides of the same coin" argument that Batman and Joker are in fact more alike than dissimilar. As if Bruce Wayne took a right when his arch-nemesis took a left. The controversial ending leaves little doubt as to Alan Moore's take on the debate, and I like it like that. While many critics have strongly resisted both the comparison and the somewhat sympathetic look at The Joker's past, the truth is that every great character -villain or hero- needs that sort of intricacy to their story to remain relevant in the world of modern fiction. Comics are no longer for children and adults realize that the world is seldom black and white, that all monsters were once men, and that unspeakable darkness and insanity resides deep inside each human mind. It can take years of suffering to bring them out or it can take one bad day. One bad day could ruin your very existence and everything you were; it's a frightening reality that cannot be overlooked while reading this comic. The more the reader is willing to ponder the ideas put forth by this story, the more you are likely to appreciate "The Killing Joke". An outstanding achievement in storytelling any way you look at it.

I was tempted to knock this down to four stars because with this book you are buying a single issue of a comic for what you could easily pay for a full trade paperback or graphic novel of equal quality like, say, Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns, which is so good it may very well cure cancer (can you prove it doesn't?). But the fact is no Batman fan should be without "The Killing Joke" and I would rather stick to reviewing based on quality rather than haggling over price. The bonus story at the end (written and illustrated by TKJ artist Brian Bolland) is a killer little mini-comic that serves as a perfect companion piece to the main story and definitely sweetens the pot for those wondering if they should get this hardcover edition. "The Killing Joke" is an absolute mindless must-have for fans of the comic book medium and even more so if you claim to be a follower of The Caped Crusader or his twisted nemesis. End of story.

5つ星のうち HASH(0x85276cfc) Batman: The Killing Joke defines Batman's and Joker's bond! 1999/3/4
投稿者 カスタマー - (Amazon.com)
形式: ペーパーバック
Batman: The Killing Joke is the greatest story ever told about the origin of The Joker. What make this story so brilliant is how Batman, by accident, created his greatest foe. The art in this story is perhaps Brian Bolland's greatest achievement. (No one can draw The Joker better than Bolland. ex: The cover of the Greatest Joker Stories Ever Told). Alan Moore delivers a dark story about Batman and his relationship with the Joker. From the first page when Batman visits The Joker at Arkham Asylum on a dark stormy night, to exactly 24 hours later when Batman confronts The Joker at an abandon carnival is brillantly told by Moore in the format of The Dark Knight tradition. I thought it was brillant to begin and end this story with the same panel (rain falling on the ground) which shows no matter what fates happen to everyone else, Batman and The Joker will always end up where they started..."There were once Two men in a lunatic asylum..." This one-shot format for mature readers is also exceptional how it can merge two stories (Joker's origin and Batman's hunt for him) together. For example, When the Joker's hand is outstreched toward's the clown in fortune teller machine, the panel before shows The Joker reaching for his wife, with the same expression on her face...while his expression is reflected in the backround. It is almost as if he were having a flashback to his orgin. It is also interesting to see Batman confront The Joker and offer to help him, despite all The Joker has done. On the panel where The Joker glances at Batman before he says no to Batman's help is very scary in the fact that The Joker is actually considering to accept help from Batman. I guess the best example of Batman's and The Joker's relationship is on the back cover, with both of them on the same playing card...Forever together and forever apart...like different sides of the same coin...

5つ星のうち HASH(0x852803f0) A review on the 20th Anniversary Deluxe Hardcover version 2008/3/29
投稿者 Not Enough Time to Read - (Amazon.com)
形式: ハードカバー
This is a review for the deluxe version of The Killing Joke released on March 19th 2008, not the differently colored version originally released in 1988 that went on to be a sequential art classic.

It's nice to see The Killing Joke in hardcover and in a bigger page format. The crisp line work of Brian Bolland shines even more on a wider, longer page. His legendary hatching and feathering technique deserves the industry version of "widescreen". This is where my compliments on this edition mainly lie. The recoloring brings out a very different response in me.

The recoloring by penciller Brian Bolland for this edition was a mistake. Gone are the atmospheric tints and lighting effects from John Higgins. Gone are great effects like raindrops on The Joker's shoulder when he appears in the story for the first time. Gone is an important component of the story that stood along Moore's script and Bolland's fine penciling as something that made The Killing Joke a visual tale to be remembered by Batman and comic book fans alike.

Bolland's recoloring job for the most part looks like he turned white lights onto every scene set in the story's present narrative and therefore effectively kills the disturbing mood that Higgins colors had substantially helped inject into the story. Instead of the original presence of emotion and horror, this version takes on some visual blandness. The scene between Alfred and Batman in the Batcave loses its somber tone. The attack on Barbara Gordon loses some of the terror of the original. Where has the strong mood of this story gone DC? I can see adjusting the intensity of Higgins original color palette to some degree like the method they chose with his coloring when they released an Absolute Version of Watchmen. It sophisticated his coloring job without changing the tone of the original. Production services at DC Comics should have just ignored Bolland's plea to recolor it altogether and let John Higgins go back and tweak his original job. I could even see Bolland and Higgins collaborating on a new recoloring but not Bolland by himself.

The flashbacks in the "possible" Joker origin have been changed to black and white with emphasis certain objects that are colored. This seems to work in a foreshadowing sense and it is disquieting to see what is chosen to be labled crimson. However, the flashback's black and white could have used more grays or a darker tint overall on these sequences (with the exception of the red objects). The Killing Joke is a very dark tale and a nice retro feel should not take the place of overall atmospheric disposition. If it was originally done as a play or film a good lighting designer or cinematographer would acknowledge the original intention through the lighting methods, but not dilute the story being told.

I loved the back up 8-pager, "An Innocent Man" when originally printed as a black and white tale for the 1996 Batman: Black and White anthology. However, I don't believe stories originally intended to be printed in black and white should get colored reprintings and vice versa. The only reason it seems to be included it because it is another Batman story by the same artist as The Killing Joke. I would much rather have seen more Joker sketches and covers that Bolland has done for fanzines, conventions, commisons and DC over the years--after all this book is supposed to focus on the Joker.

Alan Moore would not have approved of reprinting any script excerpts but that hasn't stopped DC Comics from going against his wishes as they have in the past. Fans would have loved reading the original script--even just one or two pages! This collection is aimed at fans of the Killing Joke. Give them a decent amount of extras DC! I realize that most of the original penciled and inked pages from the Killing Joke are hard to track down. Still, DC has plenty of Joker covers and art from Bolland that could have filled out the extras section very nicely. Batman: Year One, Dark Knight Returns, Arkham Asylum: A Serious House on Serious Earth have all had satisfying deluxe reprintings but it seems Killing Joke, a story that is certainly in the same league as those others, has gotten inferior anniversary treatment.

Before buying this edition, one should seek out examples online of side-by-side comparisons of pages from the original and recolored editions of the Killing Joke. Compare the examples and see which version you think you would like best. Normally, I'd give this The Killing Joke five stars but this deluxe edition could have been so much better. All the previous printings are worth hunting down.

5つ星のうち HASH(0x85276dbc) Sympathy for the Devil 2002/4/11

The Killing Joke is one of the few Batman stories where you actually feel for the Joker as a character. In most stories he either comes off as a charicature of a killer or a sinister and dispicable murderer who you can't have any sympathy for. One of Alan Moore's masterpieces, it even has a song that you can sing. Its funny, but the tune just comes to your head. You automatically know how you should be singing it. The pacing is very cinematic and it is not overburdened with words. Wordless captions make the story more fast paced.
Bolland (why doesn't he do more interiors these days?) is the best Joker (and Batman) artist of all time. The expressions of dispair that he draws on the faces of Barbara Gordon, the Joker, Commissioner Gordon and others are among the most realistic I have ever seen.

The Killing Joke is one of those classic Batman stories that is hailed as one of the best stories ever. We all know the tale of the Joker escaping Arkham and wreaking havoc on the Gordon family while Batman tries vigilantly to track down the menace once more. However, the story gives us a deeper look into the Joker’s past (or what the Joker thinks is his past) as well as some subtle nods to some other classic stories intertwined in the art. Alan Moore’s writing is top-notch if not a bit controversial for trying to do a Joker origin. Brian Bolland’s art is fantastic as well in showing the dark severity of the story. However, the real reason for this review is the format in which this story is produced.

The book starts with an introduction by Tim Sale followed by the story. Then, an afterward by Brian Bolland as well as a short comic and some sketches at the end of the book. Now, this hardcover edition is of the deluxe format which means its dimensions are akin to that of an omnibus title or what is called an oversized hardcover. It has a nice dustjacket and a lightly embossed all-black front and back to the book underneath the dustjacket. It’s a very thin book at under 100 pages but looks the part. The real controversy is the lack of John Higgins’ coloring. Brian Bolland went and redid all the colors digitally for this version. While I don’t mind the change, others prefer the original format as Brian took some artistic liberties with the book that changes things a little. It doesn’t change the story so much as the perspective and focal points.

Overall, this is a nice book in the best format possible with some great extras. $10 for a single issue put into a deluxe format is a bit steep but the content is worth the price tag.
