This is a reinterpretation of the origins of Batman, and I must say it is awesome.  I loved watching both Bruce Wayne and James Gordon come to Gotham.  What each of them had to deal with.  The city, the police force is corrupt.  Which is worse- a possibly crazy vigilante or a bad cop?  Where is that line that one cannot cross?

Other names are popping up here too.  Selina, Harvey Dent.  It’s all here.  I loved seeing these iconic characters like this.  Add to that, the plot was fantastic and the artwork was just amazing.  Five Stars!

While adults will love this book, I feel like most comics are geared toward the youth.  There is a lot of violence and some cursing here…. but I would not think twice seeing this in the hands of a 13 year old or older.  Parents, just understand that these comics are violent and can often be disturbing.  Parental Guidance

The book is out- check it out and let me know what you think!
