Starting in October 2012, ''Death of the Family'' is the second ''Franchise/{{Batman}}'' crossover spinning out of Creator/ScottSnyder and Greg Capullo's [[ComicBook/{{New 52}} relaunched]] ''Batman'' title, featuring ComicBook/TheJoker's return to Gotham City. Like ''ComicBook/NightOfTheOwls'' before it, ''Death of the Family'' isn't a traditional crossover in the sense of the reader needing to read each title in a specific order. The main story is told in the pages of ''Batman'', while the other titles tell their own stories within the larger arc. Titles that tie into the story include ''ComicBook/{{Nightwing}}'', ''[[ComicBook/{{Batgirl 2011}} Batgirl]]'', ''Batman and Robin'', ''Detective Comics'', ''ComicBook/RedHoodAndTheOutlaws'', ''ComicBook/{{Catwoman}}'', ''ComicBook/TeenTitans'' and ''SuicideSquad''. While the story begins in the 13th issue of ''Batman'', the tie-in books begin their stories in issue #14 or #15.

* DependingOnTheWriter: Harley Quinn. Snyder portrays her as an, at best, begrudingly willing participant in the Joker's scheme in Batman #13-14 (it's notable that her one appearance had her lamenting that the Joker she ''knew'' wasn't around anymore), but Adam Glass, who has "ownership" of Harley in SuicideSquad, focused as little time as he could with what Snyder wrote in Batman #13-14 in his tie-ins, resulting in the tie-ins showing Harley only assisting Joker to keep her team safe and her rejecting Joker after being made to serve him again.

* BewareTheSillyOnes: [[spoiler: Harley Quinn, despite usually being Joker's costumed moll, proves surprisingly BadAss when she realizes Joker really wants to kill her. She escapes from Joker's attempt to dump her, whilst straitjacketed, into a pit of acid -- almost throwing the Joker into the pit in the process. Then she fights, and kills, with her ''bare hands'', the rabies-infected hyenas Bud and Lou after Joker sets them on her. She bites off some of Joker's tongue, gives him a savage beatdown and then, when he chains her up in a cell and leaves her to die as he claims he's done with every Harley Quinn before her, she yanks her way free of the manacles and escapes, voluntarily going back to the ComicBook/SuicideSquad for protection from him.]]

* ShoutOut: The "tapestry" in Arkham showcases famous images from iconic Joker stories, specifically "The Laughing Fish", "Joker's Five Way Revenge", "A Death in the Family" and the end of "No Man's Land." Oddly enough, TheKillingJoke is absent.

* GenreSavvy: [[spoiler: Damian is smart enough to realize that Joker is very good at turning people's words into weapons to use against them. So he declares, "I have nothing to say that would help you manipulate me, clown." Unfortunately, it caused Joker to go into a rant about the term "clown", but at least Damian tried to be careful]].
