Need practical advice on lettering a graphic novel book project.

The illustrations have already been drawn on card stock and inked, for an actual, physical project inspired by this kind of handmade "star book" design... but now it's time to tackle the lettering. Are there any good, professional ways of doing it without hand lettering everything? If so, can you link to examples / tutorials? Or is hand lettering the only good option available? (Scanning the illustrations, adding lettering, and reprinting is not an option.)

Where is this batman panel from?

There's a Batman panel I have a clear, but possibly flawed memory of.. where is it from?

Likely written well after, but taking place shortly after The Killing Joke, I have a clear image of Barbara Gordon, in the hospital, talking to Batman (or possibly Bruce Wayne), realizing she'll never walk again, never be batgirl again, that this incident has derailed her entire planned existence, and essentially saying something to the effect of "I've heard when the police pulled up, you were standing there laughing with the man who did this to me, and I wanted to know.. were you laughing at me?" Where is this from? It can't just be in my head, can it?

Graphic Novels

I'm looking for graphic novels to read and am hopelessly out of the loop. Years ago my favorites were the Alan Moore Swamp Thing Collection, Sandman, Hellblazer, Daredevil: Born Again, Dark Knight Returns, Arkham Asylum. Can anyone suggest any essential graphic novels in that vein from the past ten years? [more inside]
