Alan Moore’s genuinely creepy/scary graphic novel, Batman: The Killing Joke, is one of the most devastating Batman/Joker tales ever told. In truth, the only way to adapt it for film or home video, is to accept that it’s a nasty piece of work and not try to soften it in any way.

Batman: The Killing Joke is WB Animation’s first R-rated movie, so it looks like they’ve done it right. Check out the deeply disturbing trailer after the jump.
