So, just wrote my review of the hardcover edition of Batman: Death of the Family on "I have read the original issues for the Death of the Family arc, and let me tell you, I LOVED IT. It was AMAZING. So why the 2 stars? I'm giving it such a low score because of the needless homophobic censorship within. Nearly every other thing the Joker says was changed to please the largely heterosexual teenage boy audience and for the other people who complained about the Joker being "gay". I do not blame Scott Snyder. He was probably told to rewrite parts for this hardcover (and probably in the paperback too) edition. Also, the art has remained untouched (or so I think, I'm going to give it a closer look later). However, I do blame DC, as a business, for caving in to the pressure of homophobic fans and idiots and needlessly and insultingly changing Joker's dialogue. Some of the new stuff he says seems very out of place and really doesn't hit home as hard as the originals. And for those of you who think the original dialogue was TOO GAY and BOO HOO THE JOKER LOVES BATMAN WHY IT MUST NOT BE TRUE HE JUST THINKS OF HIM AS A FRIEND, I have this to say to you: first of all, the Joker is not gay. He's in love with Batman. Just him. No other men. Certainly not Harley. Just Batman. That doesn't make him gay. The Joker isn't pinned down by silly sexuality categories; he just IS what he IS. And Batman is his world. This love goes beyond love, and I know a bunch of you people (and "experts") have tried to explain it away as a demented bond, a friendship even. Well, no, you're wrong. It is PAINSTAKINGLY OBVIOUS that Joker loves Batman in the romantic sense. Now I'm not saying that it is sexual; quite the opposite really. He is so IN LOVE with Batman that his world revolves around him. And that is what the original version of this and many other Joker comics were trying to convey. I applaud Snyder for what he wrote originally for this and also all of his previous dealings with the Joker's character. He is such a phenomenal writer and it is truly a shame they had to censor his original work. So please, if you are thinking of buying this or you haven't read the original issues because you wanted to wait for a compiled edition, DO NOT BUY THIS. I WILL NO LONGER BUY ANYTHING NEW 52 RELATED UNTIL DC STOPS THIS NEEDLESS HOMOPHOBIA. In this day and age, there should be equality. Sadly, DC has proven that even some of the best and most loved companies can be swayed by a whiney and homophobic/sexist/racist audience."
