A New York Times bestselling Graphic Novel!

"A Batman who laughs is a Batman who always wins."

He unleashed the Dark Multiverse in the epic series Dark Nights: Metal. Now superstar writer Scott Snyder reunites with acclaimed artist Jock ( Batman: Black Mirror) to set that evil alternate reality''s deadliest denizen loose in Gotham City--and the original Dark Knight will never be the same!

Half Batman. Half Joker. Combining everything that makes the Caped Crusader a hero and the Clown Prince a killer, the Batman Who Laughs is the Dark Multiverse''s deadliest criminal mastermind. Now he''s come to Gotham to turn Bruce Wayne''s home into an incubator for evil.

And he hasn''t come alone. Emerging from another of the Dark Multiverse''s myriad realities comes the Grim Knight. This vicious vigilante will use any weapon at his disposal to ensure those he has marked for death stay down.

A war like no other--a war of the Batmen--has begun. As Batman''s closest friends, deadliest enemies, and doppelg&aauml;ngers from across the Multiverse get caught in the crossfire, only one question remains: Who will have the last laugh?

Discover the answer in The Batman Who Laughs--a terrifying reimagining of one of comics'' greatest heroes--and villains--from the premier Batman writer of our time!

As a more casual Batman fan who has only read maybe five graphic novels in the last ten years my opinion may not count for much, but at least you can’t say I’m not objective, lol. I was actually only temped to buy this book after a Batman Who Laughs skin was added to the Mortal Kombat 11 video game; I thought it looked so cool I decided to investigate the character a little further.

Overall, I enjoyed it for what it is. The story isn’t particularly deep, and there are a couple of silly loopholes, but it does present several opportunities for Bruce Wayne to veer off into one of his inner monologues which I always find fascinating. The art isn’t the most striking I’ve seen – some of it even looks unfinished, I daresay – but the supplemental artwork and alternate covers gallery are really cool and disturbing. The only true complaint I have is that some of the text is VERY difficult to read. To emphasize the evil and escalating madness of the title character his dialogue bubbles are presented as red text on a gray background, and that just doesn’t work, even with my glasses on. I wish I were exaggerating when I tell you that I finally had to grab a flashlight and magnifying glass.

Nitpicks aside, The Batman Who Laughs is a decent enough psychological joyride. I’m glad I bought it, but at the same time felt my own lack of knowledge about the current state of the DC Universe – multiple timelines and dark universes and all that – made it a little hard to follow, though I got the gist of what was going on one way or another. Ideally I’d rate it at about 3.5 stars but will round up allowing for a small benefit of the doubt.

I really like the story of this book. The Batman Who Laughs is a good character, one of the best parts about Dark Nights: Metal for me. In this story, he''s hatched a plan to make Gotham in the normal DC Universe just like him. Of course, he''s opposed by Batman, who is also fighting becoming like The Batman Who Laughs. I found the writing and the pacing to be really good, it never seems slow or rushed. However, the artwork is just so-so. I usually like the artwork in these comics, but I''m not fond of the style in this series. But, it gets the job done. Other than the story itself, I also really like the character The Grim Knight. He''s my favorite of the Batmen from the Dark Multiverse. Unlike the others, who were created by blending Bruce Wayne with the abilities of another DC character, The Grim Knight is the same Bruce, but with one small change to his origin that makes him not have rules against firearms and killing. I find this to be the most believable of the alternate Batman. So, in the end I''m giving this book 5 stars based on the story and The Grim Knight, even though the artwork is more in the 3 star range.

Soooo... is it a little messy and confusing? Yes. But I’m going to give the flaws a bit of a pass because the creativity is through the roof on this one. I don’t think the authors of this story play it safe or conventional and the little details add up to a fun read for me. I really enjoy some of Batman’s inner struggles even if I’m not always sure why he’s struggling but then, I think of this book more like an experience comic than a straightforward novel .. in other words the experience of reading it is fun even if the plot gets a bit convoluted. Sometimes a well told story can feel bland and a messy story can still feel infused with twinging, hangnail catching electricity... so yeah, the story was somewhat confusing but the stylized tension was on point for me. Worth the purchase.

I haven''t read a comic book in forever, so when a friend said something about the batman who laughs being his favorite comic I figured if I ever get a chance I''ll look it up. Saw a hardcover edition at a good price while just browsing at other items and figured what the heck. Wow I was surprised. Not only was the artwork great, the story was interesting, tight, dark, and didn''t feel like it was written by a Junior High Schooler. The hardcover edition I got is great for the price and came in perfect condition ( despite my mailmans best efforts to make it not so. Might go into top 10 favorite batman storylines.

The Batman Who Laughs does an amazing job of showing how powerful dark multiverse beings are. Their ability to use fear and push heroes to their limits is astounding. The Batman Who Laughs has a grand scheme and is always one step ahead of Batman, all seems hopeless. Until the resolution, it feels so forced to favor our heroes rather than their dark multiverse counterpart. Regardless the art is amazing and worth buying it.

A large hardcover with a dust jacket. The pages are thick enough and the paper quality is fine. You get some sketches at the back of the book and some variant covers. Another reviewer said this book was a few pages? It’s a seven issue graphic novel with a Grim Knight tie in. A fairly reasonable size. I like Snyder as a writer, but the speech bubbles are a long read in comic terms. I don’t mind that, but some people might. Artist Jock, a personal favourite since Snyders Black Mirror (Highly recommended) The art is lovely as usual from Jock but I just get a little lost it in his art. The speech bubbles for Batman later in the comic become hard to read with grey and red letters in a disjointed writing style. Same with Batman Who Laughs with a black speech bubble and disjointed red letters. It has a great effect but I personally got lost in the letters at times. A great Metal story and highly recommend but I’d say read Metal first and their tie ins for this to make more sense. I just love Batman Who Laughs and I just hope they don’t make him an obscure character or some kind of foil.

The Batman Who Laughs finds Batman fighting a different Batman from the dark multiverse, a Batman who experienced events that led him to become the Joker. As bodies start to be found across Gotham, all of them seemingly to be Bruce Wayne, he realises that the Batman who Laughs is dispatching every Bruce Wayne he can find across the multiverse and has now come for him. However in order to protect Gotham from this new threat, the Batman from this universe must also abandon who he is and become something else entirely to defeat this new threat. This is the first book I have read from this universe. Having read it now, I feel I would have benefited from reading Batman Metal first but despite this it does still work as a stand alone feature. This is probably the darkest, most violent and bloodiest depiction of Batman''s fight against evil I have seen during my time reading the Dark Knight graphic novels and I enjoyed it greatly! It''s certainly unlike any of the other stories I have previously read. The story itself is well plotted although it does require a lot of focus when we get into the various histories of all of the Bruce Waynes from the multiverse as a number of times I did get lost and had to reread parts. The illustrations throughout are bold and striking and really bring this dark world to life. If you didn''t think Batman could get any darker then you were wrong

An absolutely brilliant comic. Scott Snyder has done an amazing job of writing, as always, and his understanding of the character of Bruce Wayne (as well as the psychology which makes said character so interesting) is very much on display in this collection. A wonderful and much needed addition to the "Metal" universe (one of my personal favourites.) The Batman Who Laughs is a charismatic and fascinating character who is more than deserving of his own mini series so I was delighted to find this jewel of a comic. Definitely worth reading! Product arrived on time and in perfect condition.

My boyfriend LOVES comic books. especially the new fifty-two issue of batman which is supposed to be one of the best batman stories of all time. I''m not sure how this comic fits into the timeline or publishing line of batman. However, this is a full story which requires little to know extra knowledge apart from the basic backstory of batman and the joker. This means that it is rather easy to simply pick this up and read with no prior batman or comic book knowledge which is fantastic! Its great that this was so cheap for a hardback when i bought this, only £16. This is a huge amount of content for such a cheap price! I would definitely recommend this story as it is honestly, fantastic! Personally, I don''t really read a lot of comic books and am not the biggest fan but i picked up this story very easily and loved it!

And included extra 5 issues. Secondly it''s unreadable for people with dyslexia, because some of the dialogue bubbles are coloured black with red writing. This is throughout the whole book. So I have absolutely no idea what it''s about. The art by jock is very Marmite, you either love it or hate it....kinda upset to be honest, because it''s money down the drain.
