Try the recent Joker storyline from Batman Chronicles 7-12. DC have already released it I believe in hardcover.
That's "Lovers and Madmen." The art is pretty bad, and the story is so-so. A very different take on the Joker's origin. I prefer "The Man Who Laughs," but you might want to at least check this out. Be prepared for dissapointment, however.

Then there's also Batman Year 2, a four part story in Detective Comics that was released straight after Batman Year 1.
I thought Year 2 was terrible. Just a bad story all around. It's also been retconned out of existence. Thankfully.
