Batman Year One

Summary Batman Year One

A new edition of one of the most important and critically acclaimed Batman adventures ever written by Frank Miller author of The Dark Knight ReturnsIn 1986 Frank Miller and David Mazzucchelli produced this groundbreaking reinterpretation of the origin of Batman who he is and how he came t This is one of those books that's been absorbed into the public consciousness so fully that reading it now it can be hard to see what was revolutionary about it This book has come to define the way we think of Batman today and was influential on the darker grittier cape comics of the eighties and early ninetiesBut it is also instrumental in introducing what made that period of comics so ridiculous It's been praised for its gritty realism but like any Miller book it's sensationlist than realist a hard boiled patina over an idealized superhero coreSure Batman screws things up a few times in this and seems to get shot beaten and burned in every attempt to stop a crime but these are primarily to push the melodrama not to enforce realism We'll get a classic Miller line about a bullet's 'searing hot flash of metal numbing my leg' but then Batman gets up runs around kicks through a brick wall and at one point takes a ski vacation to rehabilitateThe wounds aren't there to make Batman human they're to make him totally manly and awesome It's an eighties action movie where our hero gets shot in the shoulder just so he can wrap it up grit his teeth and take out some armed men with karateBut Miller's a good writer He has a strong voice and a compelling sense of pacing and if this story brings realism to Batman it's in the small human moments particularly Gordon's story though he scraps like a Sin City tough too uipping to himself it's been years since I had to take out a Green BeretThe way Batman takes death defying risks every few pages isn't a sign of greater maturity or realism it's just a switch to a different kind of ridiculous epic melodrama Sure it's much bloody and grim but if adding blood and sex to a story was all it took to write mature realistic stories film critics would spend their careers analyzing slasher moviesOf course it wouldn't be a Frank Miller story without whores which is where we get to his rewrite of Catwoman she's a leather clad prostitute with a child prostitute sidekick She doesn't have as much character as the men in fact Gordon's monologues run right over her scenes denying us insightBut even with the mandatory prostitutes and Die Hard injuries it's a fun book with character and story and some well crafted dialogue More than that it's a vision of how to create male fantasies without catering to preteen boys It forms a part of that influential genre shifting period defined by 'Wathcmen' and it stands as an integral part of the modern Batman character My Suggested Readings in Comics The Darkest Evening of the Year the most important and critically acclaimed Batman adventures ever written by Frank Miller author of The

Rtist 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 that provide a glimpse into the making of this contemporary classicThis volume collects Batman #404–40 You know the classics of literature War and Peace Crime and Punishment Middlemarch There are aspects to them to appreciate and patient readers can be rewarded greatly with those books But let's be honest most of us view classics as a bit of a chore But what about classic comics Kind of the same thing but not for so many Some classic comics Marvel and DC especially are tough to read because the stories from the 40s and 50s are so badly written and cheesy and the art is hit or miss though most of them possess a guileless charm to them that makes them easier to stomach When it comes to comics no character stands taller than Batman and no Batman book has of a reputation than Year One Is it a chore to read No Has it aged poorly Not even a bit Does it deserve it's title as a true bona fide classic Austin Powers voice Yeah baby Year One is Frank Miller and David Mazzuchelli's retelling of Batman's origin and through their retelling they set the tone and standard for all other Batman books that followed A 25 year old Bruce Wayne returns to a nightmarish Gotham City riddled with crime at the same time as an older but still young James Gordon recently transferred to the GCPD and entering Gotham City for the first time Both men have a clear mission to clean up the streets of crime and make Gotham habitable for decent hardworking folksSome readers have wondered why Gordon gets as much space maybe as Bruce Wayne in this book and the answer is simple they're both two sides of the same coin The very first Batman story opens with Bruce and Jim sitting talking about crime and Jim is arguably Batman's best friend Batman's origin would tie in with Gordon's as their lives will be linked forever once they dig their heels in and bring justice to GothamIt's been a few years since I read Year One and I really hoped it would hold up and it did Whatever your feelings are about Frank Miller today and he has unfortunately gone from genius writer to crackpot old man his work in the 80s ranks amongst the best the comics medium has ever produced and Year One is arguably the pinnacle of that work He went from telling the last Batman story ever with The Dark Knight Returns to with his next book going back to the very beginning and telling the first Batman story ever and both are masterpiecesIn just four issues we see Bruce get into his first fight as an unmasked vigilante to realising he must don a disguise to the famous Yes Father I will become a bat scene to his fledgling first missions to clear up corrupt police mob bosses and the iconic dinner party scene where he appears to Gotham's most powerful and evil to inform them they have eaten well but from now on none of them are safe And the scene when Batman takes down the SWAT team Brilliant Still tense exciting and fantastic to readIt's a testament to Miller's writing that he's able to take Gordon who for many is little than a one note background character and makes you care about him as much as you do Batman Gordon becomes Gotham's first non corrupt officer fighting his own colleagues literally and figuratively to uphold the law and become better than the criminals they chase while his wife is pregnant with James Jr see Batman The Black Mirror for what happened to James Jr when he grew up and the stresses of the job leading to him make some bad decisionsWe also meet Selina Kyle for the first time working as a dominatrix in Gotham's red light district as she decides to become her own costumed character Catwoman after first seeing Batman Mazzuchelli's art in this book is flawless but my one criticism of the book is Catwoman's outfit I hate the whiskers and tail What use are either to a cat burglar And it just looks stupidAnyway Year One is a must read for all Batman fans as if you didn't already know Everyone who has even a cursory knowledge of Batman comics knows Year One is one of the first to read And it is but it's also one to re read and come back to again and again because there are a LOT of Batman books but few of such high uality as Year One A great beginning for the Dark Knight and the man who would be Commissioner Just don't read Year Two Bihar Is in the Eye of the Beholder this collection are over 40 pages of never before seen developmental material such as
