The Joker Goes Sane!
Set in a world where the Clown Prince of Crime has been cured of his madness, Batman: White Knight follows the man now known as Jack Napier as he embarks on a quest to heal the city he once terrorized. After reconciling with his long-suffering partner, Harley Quinn, he sets in motion a carefully plotted campaign to discredit the one person whom he views as Gotham City's true enemy: Batman.
His crusade exposes a decades-long history of corruption within the Gotham City Police Department and transforms Napier into a city councilman and civic hero. But when the sins of his past return to threaten everything that he has accomplished, the distinctions between savior and destroyer begin to break down for both the Joker and Batman alike--and with them any hope for Gotham's future.
Superstar writer and artist Sean Murphy delivers an extraordinary examination of comics' greatest antagonists in Batman: White Knight, exploring justice, corruption, activism, and the darkest depths of mental illness. This new graphic novel is the first title from the DC Black Label imprint, which features classic DC characters in edgy, literary stand-alone stories written and illustrated by world-class authors and artists, all intended for mature audiences.

This book felt much more grown up, more detailed and dover into darker places than the past Batman books i've read. The illustrations WOW, just...

These being modern times, Batman is filmed beating the shit out of Joker and force-feeding him pills. Understandably, this s...
