Written shortly after The Dark Night Returns, Miller's dystopian fable of Batman's final days, Year One set the stage for a new vision of a legendary character. This edition includes the complete graphic novel, a new introduction by writer Frank Miller and a new illustrated afterword by artist, David Mazzucchelli. Completing this collection are over 40 pages of never-before-seen developmental material such as character and layout sketches, sample script pages, sketches, and more that provide a glimpse into the making of this contemporary classic.

Classic looking artwork, classic Batman! It even shows an illustration of one of those old Mickey Mouse phones... you know which ones I'm talking about? The one where Mickey is holding the yellow receiver... yeah that one! 🤣🤣🤣 Year One is definitely one to have on your shelves if you're a Batman fan.

This is my first of Batman, was this not where I should've started? Can someone point me in the right direction?

Bookwomble There's soooooo much to read, and I'm certainly not up to date with Batman continuity, but Year Two is an obvious next read - it does develop the arc started in Year One. The Killing Joke, Arkham Asylum: A Serious House on Serious Earth, and The Dark Knight Returns are all classic, but possibly best enjoyed when you're more familiar with the tropes they subvert. I'm sure others will make suggestions to fill in the gaps 😊🦇🐧🤡 2mo
Bookwomble This Goodreads list, The Best of Batman, might give you some ideas. There's over 500 titles on it, though, so it's not exactly curated! https://www.goodreads.com/list/show/450.Best_of_Batman 2mo
js0315 @Bookwomble Great, thank you! 2mo

"Hey kid! Ever dance with the devil in the pale moonlight?" Frank Miller's work has no equal. And his Batman is forever my Batman. Year One is an origin story for all of Gotham's iconic character: Jim Gordon, Selena Kyle, Alfred, Bruce...

This Batman origin story was gritty and powerful. Shows Gordon in a light I have not seen him before. The art is amazing and the characters as compelling as always. Batman keeps pulling me in and leaving me wanting more. The rich playboy ;)

These are the two I read yesterday to finish up my #LetsGetGraphicMonthlyFeature weekend. I didn‘t get through my whole stack of GNs, but I did get through the ones specifically about Batman (most of which were on my TBR list). Year One is awesome! There were a few little strange details, but mostly I loved it. And Scooby-Doo Team-Up was really fun—I definitely got that sweet, animated Scooby-Doo or Batman series vibe to it. Both picks!

The last two weeks have been pretty much either working or studying and absolutely no time for reading so today was a nice change when I finally had time to read this Batman graphic novel! It's considered one of the "must -reads" and rightful so, because it is a very good origin story for bothering Batman and Jim Gordon.
Looking forward to getting some more Batman stories.

#bookmail some comics I've been meaning to check out in a while! Batman: year one, the first volume of Powers and the first volume of Gotham Central!
They all look great! Wish I didn't have to study some articles for work or I'd be reading them already!

Well, I've had my first experience of reading a graphic novel on a kindle fire, and it was great! You can double tap on each cell, and it will stand out and enlarge! And that's the kind of thing that impresses me!😆 Anyway, I thoroughly enjoyed the story itself - this isn't my first Batman comic - and the artwork and 'graphic' violence is always good!

🌟🌟🌟Better than The Dark Knight Returns, but still over hyped.

What makes a man put on a costume with a bat motif? What makes an idealistic cop come to one of the most corrupt cities on the planet?

The lives of Bruce Wayne and Jim Gordon will intersect as they try to come to grips with a city and role that is alien to them, fighting them as they try to save it. This is the start of one of most enduring partnerships in comic book history with great story and art.

This is the first Batman comic I have ever read. I really enjoyed the story and now look forward to reading more Batman in the future.
