A #1 New York Times bestseller!

One year ago, the Joker limped off the streets of Gotham, mutilated and scarred when someone had taken the pale white skin right off of his face.

But now, the Dark Knight's greatest foe has returned but for once, Batman doesn't seem to be his target. Instead, the Joker turns his vile hatred towards Commissioner Gordon, Alfred, Robin, Nightwing, Batgirl, Red Hood and Red Robin ... the only family Bruce Wayne has left. The Clown Prince of Crime will unleash his most unpredictable, vicious and psychotic assault ever on everyone Batman holds dear.

Can Batman stop his arch-rival's most deranged assault ever? Or will the cost of a deadly secret be a family member's life?

#1 New York Times best-selling creators Scott Snyder (AMERICAN VAMPIRE) and Greg Capullo (Spawn) present the long-awaited return of the Joker, as he unleashes his most terrifying, personal assault ever on the Dark Knight. BATMAN: DEATH OF THE FAMILY collects BATMAN #13-17 along with backup stories illustrated by award-winning artist Jock (BATMAN: THE BLACK MIRROR).

One of the best books of the New 52, Scott Synder really wrote a good story here.

Highly recommended.
That is all.

Creepy and malevolent. This collects several issues of the Batman series tying into the Joker's return. With the villain trying to tear apart the lives of the Dark Knight and his allies, this central story for the crossover goes over the edge into darkness. That's entirely appropriate given the madness of the Joker. Snyder outdoes himself with this volume.

The third volume of the New 52 Batman series contains Batman's meeting an increasingly more psychotic Joker who has cut the Flesh off his own face and now wears it as a mask overtop of bits of expose musculature. It has made the Joker even more creepy looking. In this story, the Joker seeks to drive emotional wedges between Batman and members of his crime-fighting family. This story crossed over into many other titles.
