Batman: Year One by Frank Miller

Batman: Year One by Frank Miller, 136 pages


Bruce Wayne is that I got that out of the way, on with the review.  Everyone knows Batman and his passion for dishin' out sweet vigilante justice.  We all also know that his parents were killed when he was young and that his rogue's gallery is well fleshed and eclectic.  But what about how Bruce Wayne became Batman?  What about his first year back in Gotham after traveling the world?  How about Commissioner Gordon, what's his deal?  Well, these questions and more are answered in Miller's Batman: Year One.  Read as Batman takes on his toughest enemies yet: inexperience and a corrupt police force.

Sarcasm aside, all heroes start somewhere, and Batman is no different.  I really like how Miller split focus between Batman and James Gordon, but kinda felt the Catwoman origin story was unnecessary.  Overall though, it was a good story.
