strictlyfromdullville asked: Pretend you're an editor at DC comics back in '88, and Alan Moore says he wants to have the Joker shoot Barbara Gordon in the spine. No idea of Oracle has yet been floated. Would you allow the story to go forward?
Not as written, no. People will hate me for saying this, but just dumping Barbara like that, it was just cheap crap shock value, like she wasn’t a person at all.
Alan Moore’s a genius and even he disavows the book for the most part.
