the killing joke


There’s something both joyous and fatalistic about this issue. It shouldn’t work, and if we weren’t dealing with two characters who both understand and accept fate and destiny more so than the average super-hero it probably wouldn’t. For those who haven’t picked it up yet, this issue deals with a girls night out with Zatanna, Wonder Woman, and Barbara Gordon (before she became Oracle – and that’s what the issue is really all about). Two friends decide to give Batgirl a night out on the town, one night of brightness to keep the darkness at bay in the days to come. The Brave and The Bold can be a very hit-and-miss title, but this issue is definitely worth a look.
