Everyone’s going bananas for the upcoming animated adaptation of The Killing Joke, the popular and controversial Batman comic written by Alan Moore and featuring art and coloring by Brian Bolland and John Higgins respectively.
The film adaptation has generated a much, much milder controversy of its own among fans – apparently, quite a few people are miffed that the film doesn’t match Bolland and Higgins’ visuals from the comic. And as we all know films that take creative liberties with the source material are always terrible, while films that stick rigidly to the established form are, of course, universally acclaimed.
Emil Ryderup, also known as Plan Making Mammals, has taken it upon himself to grab hold of WB’s trailer for The Killing Joke and give it a tweak and a fresh coat of paint to make it look a bit more the original graphic novel. You can check out his version, as well as a comparison of the two, below.
