    more from this reviewer

    Neil Gaiman could make the phone book interesting...

    I found part two of this two-part comic arc on a Christmas trip to Canada.

    Upon my return to Indiana, I had my local comic shop find the first part before I read the story.

    I immersed myself in the wonders of the Batman mythos; swimming the eddies and currents that Neil Gaiman left in the wake of his writing.

    I won't attempt details or synopsis...I can't make the words sing or the punctuation keep time.

    This is a story that makes all Batmen one. Bob Kane to Frank Miller, Adam West to Christian Bale-they all belong, they all make sense.

    I bought this hardcover because the story deserves a permanent place in my library. The extras chapters are excellent as well.

    The deciding factor was the personal, touching dedication that Neil penned to his recently deceased father.

    Perfect.

    Exceptionally Original

    I'm not particularly a huge batman fan but I grew up watching the cartoon etc... I am, however, a big fan of adult comics, especially those with more complicated plots and themes. This one was put together spectacularly from start to finish and really bent my mind as to what a basic super hero comic could do. The art is equally compelling but not just for its immediately aesthetic appeal....
    I have read "The Killing Joke" Alan Moore, "Joker" by Brian Azzarello and this. I would place them in this order, which may seem like blasphemy to some

    1) Caped Crusader
    2) Killing Joke
    3) Joker
