While I felt the origin story for the Joker in here was mediocre (I actually prefer the more open, just some nutjob origin), I did really like the interaction between Batman and Joker.

The Barbara Gordon bit was unsurprisingly frustrating for me, as it was pretty unnecessary to cripple her character in such a way...sadly, yet another instance of using a female character purely for the character development of the men.

Still enjoyed this, but there were issues. I probably would have been more forgiving of Barbara if I hadn't previously known about the creative discussion behind it.
