There are some books that transcend the medium and this book did just that. Everything about this book is so embarrassingly personal that I feel for Paul Dini. I don’t know what to write about since there’s so much to write about that I would rather leave it for me to find out again why I liked this book by reading it agin; I don’t want to ruin the rediscovery of enjoying this title

Favorite parts:
-Almost everything


I don’t give it a perfect score since I reserve giving 5 stars to something that changes me or I recognize this is the highest caliber book in its medium ( )

I bought it without really knowing about the storyline. It was the Dark Knight so I bought it. At first I was disappointed to realise it was a comic book autobiography of Paul Dini. However as I read it I was captivated and moved by the story.

A great way to write an autobiography and I would fully recommend. ( )

This book hangs on the gimmick that the introspective protagonist interacts in his mind with DC Comics characters as he recovers from the physical and emotional trauma of a mugging. In the end, I grew tired of the gimmick and the thin story it was trying to carry. ( )

Unexpected--and unexpectedly touching--Dini's autobiographical graphic novel is not your typical Batman story, but it's a touching reminder of what Batman means to so many. ( )
