    Description

    Brian Bolland Batman: The Killing Joke Page 4 Preliminary Artwork Original Art (DC, 1988). The rough graphite prelim layout page features an early key element in the story... in the last panel, Batman discovers that the Joker has already escaped Arkham Asylum! The Killing Joke was a controversial Batman story for many reasons, not the least of which was the crippling of Barbara Gordon (Batgirl), and the implication that Batman actually kills the Joker off-camera in the closing panels. This rough panel layout page is graphite on 5.75" x 8.25" paper and in Excellent condition.
