This book has to be one of the best *superhero* books I have ever read. From beginning till end, the story just didn't let up. I'm glad they went ahead & went deep into Batman's origins. I like the pace of the action as well. The interaction with the main villains, and the interaction with Batman's friends & associates was well written. If you're in the mood to read a well written book about a man who takes a long journey to become the Dark Knight, pick this book up. You won't be dissappointed.
