A good Batman story
Everything has gone very bad for Batman recently. He is being blamed for just about all of the gangland crimes of late, particularly the brutal murder of Stephanie Brown, AKA The Spoiler, AKA Robin, AKA a teenage girl who didn't know any better. There's more than one player in this game, and it's going to take all of Batman's detective abilities to figure out who did what, and why.
OK. Well, you can't please all the people all the time. Just recently I wrote a scathing review of a very popular Batman graphic novel, I just didn't like it. This one, on the other hand, really spoke to me. Batman is certainly the Dark Knight in this story, pummeling the bad guys, still seeking justice for what was done.
Overall, I found this to be a very interesting read. I liked the action, the mystery, the angst, the search for justice in a world gone more than slightly insane. So, as for me, I thought that this was a very good Batman story, one that I really enjoyed reading. I don't hesitate to recommend it.
Somewhat pointless Batman/Ra's story!
I'm not sure if this was released when Batman Begins came out just to give new readers a look at Ra's al Ghul but this really missed the mark. I don't know why this was titled Year One because lacks everything that some of the great Year One stories had. Batman is faced with a crazy plot about death no longer existing and he solves it without batting an eye, no pun intended. Now, is that because Batman is the best or because of sloppy unimaginative writing? I'm guessing the latter. The only thing that keeps this book above 1 star was the phenomenal art by Paul Gulacy. He's able to draw Batman completely classic and modern at the same time. Excellent work on his part. Sadly he had to deal with this script. If interested in Ra's al Ghul or Batman fighting the supernatural, there are far better collections than these meek one.
Good follow up to war Games
I was out of comics for a while, and picked this Graphic Novel, great way to catch up! Batman finally gets some answers following the WAR GAMES saga
