Year One just served as my introduction to graphic novels and I believe I chose quite well. It was a gorgeous read and a pleasure. I feel as though the biggest complaint for me about graphic novels is the price in comparison to the time spent reading. That said, this deluxe edition has some really cool early work in the later pages and comes hardback, which I'm told is not usual. Batman is easily my favorite super hero of all and this particular story encapsulates much of what early Batman is about. ( )

A re-sart of the Batman story, as only Frank Miller could do! We see Bruce Wayne's first adventures as the Batman, Lieutenant Gordon's arrival in Gotham, and the Catwoman's beginnings! All in one story arc! ( )

Nice origin story of the caped crusader. I do feel, however, that this was more about James Gordon, and his relationship with Batman than just a Batman tale. Good, easy read. ( )

This tale tells the story of Batman's first year as the protector of Gotham City. Written by the legendary Frank Miller, this collected comic gives wonderful insight into the psyche and driving force behind Batman's crusade. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0930289331, Paperback)

Whether you grew up reading Batman comics, watched the campy television show, or eagerly await each new movie, this is the book for you. A retelling of the events that led to Bruce Wayne's becoming Batman, this book combines Frank Miller's tight film-noir writing with David Mazucchelli's solid artwork.
