Ah, maybe you're right. I own the books but I'd need to reread them to make a proper comparison.

The general story points they took (although obviously changed to fit their own film needs) from each:

The Long Halloween: Dent, Gordon and Batman trying to bring down the Mob and the Mob trying to find a way to launder it's money. Dent's transformation into Two Face (although that was altered to fit into the story and world created within the film with the addition of The film created Rachel character).

The Killing Joke: Trying to prove the most upstanding citizen is capable of being driven mad. In the book it revolved around Gordon being his target and has a very different story line.

the main point being that they took the generalized plot points of these and altered them into what worked in the world on film created and what would work best as a movie.

I don't shop at B & M shops, but Amazon is selling it for $30. That's a bargain.

Yeah, you go to a B&M you'll be lucky if it's as cheap as $45, but at Amazon it's only $30...

I picked this up at Amazon for $30, so I have an extra code at WB store for anyone who wants it:

KZ3A-24BU-2GK3-GS6C

I believe their price is $38 for the blu-ray so it's a couple bucks cheaper than amazon with that code.
