    In this story, writer Frank Miller manages to creating a stimulating new story by implementing traits that were nonexistent in any other Batman origin. Rather than focusing on the brutality and fear that the Batman strikes into his opponents, he chooses to focus on the morality of two men, both trying to find their true purpose and trying to spread hope in a city where it’s merely a word. Batman: Year One is only truly surpassed by Miller’s Dark Knight Returns, and even still, this is a saga in the Dark Knight’s life true fans should never be able to resist.

  • Boring

    By Bat-Excellence
    It has a lot of creative elements, but it's more of a cop story rather than a Batman comic. The third chapter is the only interesting part of this book. The angles in each of the panels are incredible too. But other than that, this really didn't spark my interest. I just find "Batman: Earth One" a more superior origin. I just wonder how Scott Synder will do...
