A feature film that is rated R? Holy ghosts of Team America, please tell me more. Batman: The Killing Joke is an R rated film that will have a two night theatrical appearance via Fathom Events. The animation in Batman: The Killing Joke is similar to that which is used in Batman: The Animated Adventures. The Killing Joke earns its R rating and is not appropriate for children. However, fans of the graphic novel or a deep appreciation of the dark knight will relish seeing a Batman tale where the joker goes too far.
The Killing Joke is a movie. The classic Joker tale and his backstory is animated, rated R and earns every bit of it. Not for the kids, but awesome for those who like their Batman dark and their villains truly evil

It’s a great week for graphic novels and trade paperbacks. It’s not that there aren’t any great new all age comic books, it’s just that there are a couple new graphic novels or trade paperbacks that bundle together some cool series.
Unbeatable Squirrel Girl and Great Lakes Avengers, Dragons Riders of Berk and The Cloud are three different graphic novels. The Cloud is a fabulous fantasy book that’s brand new for fans of Mouseguard or the Jim Henson titles that have come out on Archaia. Dragons continues the adventures of Berk, while Squirrel Girl is a great title that girls will really love. Ignore the T+ rating on this one as it’s great for anyone 7 and up.
In action all age comic books you’ll find 2 new Star Wars magazines, Doctor Who, Back to the Future and a couple others. Humor readers will enjoy two of our go-to books, Lumberjanes and Simpsons Comics, both of which are some of the best humor, content and art for ages 6 and up. Grumpy Cat, Groo, a new Betty & Veronica series, a couple Disney books and Strawberry Shortcake round out the comics.
