No, Alfred isn't the Joker. The story was about Batman's "funeral", which was attended by various versions of his allies and enemies, all of them having a different tale about Batman's death. But none of their stories were canon (we had Batman dying in a fire, Batman drowning, Batman being mortally poisoned by the Joker, Batman sacrificing himself to save Gotham City from a bomb, Batman bleeding to death, among many others).

Yeah, the overall story was really more of an homage to the different interpretations and eras of Batman. None of it is canon, but it made for a great comic.

Great book. It's a love story about Batman. It grabs bits and pieces of his history and says a fond farewell to him.
