A Death in the Family (Batman)

Jason Todd finally reunites with his estranged biological mother, but unfortunately for him, the Joker is also waiting for him. Captured by the Joker, Jason and his mother are savagely beaten by a crazed Joker. As a final insult, Joker arms a bomb linked to Jason and his mother. Can they possibly escape with their lives?

This issue shipped with two versions, one containing phone numbers to either save or kill Jason Todd, the other without the phone numbers.
This cover was the version that featured the phone numbers.
