The first in Frank Miller’s Batman series. This is the first Batman graphic novel/comic I have read, but from the storyline and others opinions, it appears to be the Batman series that relates most closely with the newest movie series.

Batman: Year One focuses on the beginning of Bruce Wayne as Batman, but the focus is more on Gordon than on Batman himself, as Gordon tries to solve crimes and catch the new masked avenger. The ending is much like the ending of the film, Batman Begins, and there are many similarities.

I have another in the series that I am looking forward to reading, but I’m not quite sure the exact order they are supposed to be in, so hopefully there will not be any confusion.

This was a great introduction to Batman, from the eyes of great creator.
