Fangirls, I feel like I’ve missed out a ton, not having read this book. Batman: A Death in the Family by Jim Starlin, Jim Aparo, and Mike DeCarlo is a crazily controversial book about the death of Jason Todd. It’s controversial not only because he died, but because readers voted for him to die. There was a phone poll, that readers could call and pay 50 cents to vote if Jason Todd should live or die. The poll was incredibly close, and death won by by just 72 votes, so Todd was doomed to die by Joker’s hands.
