Many people don't really "get" this book, but anybody who likes the comedic side of Batman should love this graphic novel, which accuratley displays the phsycopathic mind of the Joker. Sam Keith creates a Picassoesque comic world, which has lots of hyper things going on. The story talks about Joker going on a reality show talking about how he is "changed". This is the thing that many phycopathic people do in real life. (saying they are sorry and reformed when really, they are not) I reccomend this book for anyone who wants a change from the regular Batman stories.

Somehow Batman Secrets fails to truly get your attention. Early Bruce Wayne youth flashbacks and Joker-Batman "conversations" in some dark enclosure does leave you feeling trapped - and hoping you can escape this dreary story. Assist D.A. Ammon's 'harlequin syndrome' [as I call it] is run of the mill. Pass this book by.

Multiple writing mistakes are made in "Batman Secrets". Citizens of Gotham would never, under any circumstances, have forgiven the Joker for his former crimes. Also, Batman is taken down multiple times during the duration of the novel once by a woman with a baseball bat. I can look past the fact that Batman would definetly have heard her but the fact that he was unconcious after she he hit him was too much. Furthermore, Batman is always closed up infront of cameras and usually avoids them yet in "Secrets" he allows them to film him. All in all Batman Secrets is not a reccomended read for anyone, certainly not fans of the medium.
