Sam Kneale Batman the Killing Joke by Alan Moore is one of the best batman comics ever, but is it the DARKEST? YOu could either read the comic or watch the animated film adaptation which I have a link for here:
The film is rated R
By the way skip to to the 30 minute mark, that is when the actual story starts. The first 30 minutes is a dump prequel.

Scott Rees While it is certainly up there, I am sure that there are others that are equally disturbing in their own right for example Batman:Venom - Batman fails to save a small child so in order to become good enough in his own eyes he gets hooked on the drug Venom so if you have ever wondered what would happen if you crossed Batman and Bane ...... it is quite disturbing. Also you have the whole Knightfall storyline possibly Batman's darkest hour especially during the time of Bruce's recovery as he watches Azrael wearing the cowl ( or in his case armored helmet ) .
