Batman: Year One by Frank MillerTo me, Batman is kinda like Pizza. By which I mean that even bad pizza is still pretty good.
But for me, the best Batman is written by Miller. Maybe its because I like his writing style, or maybe its because his fairly dark writing style really suits Batman.
Or it could just be that the very first comic I read as adult was Dark Night Returns. Thats the comic that made me realize that comics werent just a bunch of silly bullshit stories for kids.
Whatever the reason, this comic is in that fine Frank Miller style. Showing Batman and Gordon at the beginning of their lives. Both of them making mistakes. Both of them learning about their city. Both of them paying for their mistakes....
Yeah. If youre into Batman and you havent read this one, youre missing out. You should try it.
