Batgirl will have to face her demons from being shot by Joker. What a great story idea. It's so startlingly new and fresh and original...

I'm tired of this. I want Stephanie back. Also, Cass.

*Snorts* I do like the declaration that we're going to find out something new about TKJ that we didn't before. Presumably something from Barbara's perspective, when to be frank, the story was never about her and even Moore regrets her being a casualty of what was going on.

Of course, I'm sure Saint Gail will magically find a way to explain things that doesn't present Barbara as a complete putz when The Killing Joke ends with Joker and Batman laughing it up together. I like TKJ, but honestly, DC, you should've fucked it off to Elseworlds status.

I'm aware of that issue, yes. It still doesn't erase the fact that TKJ should arguably be a career-ender for Batman when the police arrive to find him laughing it up with the Joker. I mean, the entire story has a sense of finality to it. Batman candidly discusses the potential of their deaths with the Joker, the Joker is afraid to get help. The police arrive to find Batman laughing with the Joker - either Batman retires, gets thrown in Arkham, or there's no way in Hell he could possibly explain things to the Commissioner.

Even Moore says it wasn't originally meant to be in continuity. The story with Barbara questioning Batman shouldn't have been necessary, but DC insisted on shoehorning it in there. TKJ is just a very well drawn Elseworlds, IMO.
