Hey, I've just finished reading The Man Who Laughs and I've read Year One a few days ago. I enjoyed both a lot but some things seem not right:
1. At the very end of Year One, Gordon says the police got some threats about poisoning the reservoir from someone who calls himself the Joker. First of all: How did they not know (in TMWL) what the joker intends to do? And second of all: In TMWL it says that the Joker did not call himself that way, but the police did. But in Year One, Gordon states the the Joker calls himself the Joker.
2. Year One is the first action Batman had (right?). So if Joker is Red Hood (as Batman suspects in TMWL) then shouldn't there be some time between Year One and TMWL so Red Hood would fall into those chemicals and turn into Joker, and only then send threats to the GCPD about poisoning the reservoir?
Can someone clear things up for me? I'm a bit confused.. :S
