The Joker has taken over the Wayne Foundation and Gotham City as a whole and Batman is penniless, his allies traumatized and in a disarray.

The main Joker War mini-series is a bit of a mixed bag om in Batman. It finishes really strong with the 100th issue of its run with Batman. It just kind of meanders and limps it's way there, with Batman unconcscious and attempts to be supershocking which are part of the mythos of Batman comics, but are becoming increasingly hard to do without going Mature reader.

However, at the same time, Joker War and all the tie-in issues collected here, establishes a new order for Batman and opens up multiple opportunities for Batman and his supporting cast. Most of the tie-in stories are really quite good, though there are a few stinkers.

So, while I wasn't blown away much of Joker Wars, I did find myself at least cautiously optomistic about where it could lead.
