Random House, Inc.
A New York Times Best Seller!

A new trade paperback edition of one of the most important and critically acclaimed Batman adventures ever, written by Frank Miller, author of THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS!

In 1986, Frank Miller and David Mazzucchelli produced this groundbreaking reinterpretation of the origin of Batman — who he is and how he came to be.

Written shortly after THE DARK KNIGHT 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 pro-vide a glimpse into the making of this contemporary classic.

This volume collects Batman #404-407.

Baker & Taylor
Chronicles the events that led to Bruce Wayne's becoming Batman and his first year fighting crime.

Great read, and kick off to my summer reading pilgrimage. Love the parallels between Gordon and Bruce, and the rise of our beloved Dark Knight.

This is the quintessential Batman graphic novel. It gives a different light on the character by showing his rookie mistakes, giving him a sense of humanity that isn't often found in his other graphic novels. The art is really cool as well; Batman Year One has my favorite Batman out of all of the graphic novels that I have read. If you are a Batman fan, you must read this graphic novel.

Enjoyed it greatly, I really liked the scene when inspiration struck Bruce. It was a moment where I just had to nod my head in acceptance.

Along with "The Killing Joke" by Alan Moore, "Batman: Year One" is arguably the best Batman graphic novel ever written.

Year One was much of Christopher Nolan's inpspiration for Batman Begins. A brilliantly told origin story, Frank Miller's style is dark, clever and intense. The illustrations are also brooding.

Very dark, but captivating. A very intense portrayal of Batman's beginning. I really enjoyed reading it.
