Non-Stiq: The Killing Joke (Animated) Review

Back in 1988 Alan Moore rocked the comic world (again) with his one-shot graphic novel The Killing Joke. Within the pages of this masterpiece Moore set what many feel is the definitive backstory of the Batman supervillain The Joker. Not only that, but the story would prove as a defining moment for another character, Barbara Gordon (Batgirl). In a vicious assault Joker leaves her paralyzed, something that not only would define her character as much as being the first Batgirl (there have been three others: Bette Kane, Cassandra Cain, and Stephanie Brown) but lead her to becoming a role model to paraplegic individuals when she would later take up the mantle of Oracle. For the last 28 years The Killing Joke has stood as one of the most beloved and twisted Batman tales.

WRUP You Gonna Call?

Well still haven't seen the new movie, but I'd assume it's doing well since Sony wants more sequels already. Lets just check and see what those numbers are. Oh. Well, maybe what should have been a success was the 2009 game Ghostbusters: The Video Game, which we have been playing for the Game Club!

What all else is everyone playing?

  • Thomas (Twitter): I like to make people feel rushed for the WRUP and then not post it :P
  • TruLegendKiller: So I haven't been playing too much: Sleeping Dogs, which I love, very cool to find a sandbox martial arts game. Also replaying Ghostbusters: The Video Game (2009) for Game Club. On a side note, this week is Comic Con so we will learn a bunch of Video Game, Movie and some Video Game news.
  • Yoda0VGs (Twitter): Been playing more Rocksmith as well as Overwatch just about every night. Cant wait for Sunday when I get to play more Ghostbusters for the GameClub!
  • Scrooloose: Still going through Stick of Truth, and I'll be playing more Ghostbusters 2009 for Game Club. I fixed my truck. It's running smoother than it has in since I bought it way back when and I'm feeling more or less healed up from pulled muscles. Also my sister and I both picked up unicycles recently so we're both trying to learn to ride. That's been a fun if not slightly uncomfortable thing to do; good core workout as well.
  • The Ghost of Greywolfe (Twitter, YouTube): I'm old and loose track of the days.

Warning: This article will contain spoilers. You have been warned.

For my first article I wanted to cover something a bit different from what you may read on this site. While I respect that this is mostly a website for Gamers I thought I might try bring another angle from time to time. This angle will be in the form of literature. So, what better place to start then the recent controversy surrounding Marvel Comics?
