These are all words that describe Batman: Venom. After Batman fails to save a little girl from drowning before his very eyes, he begins to question his abilities. The little girl¿s father has the perfect solution, a new designer steroid called Venom that will build Batman¿s muscles as he sits doing detective work. He begins taking it with strictly good intentions, but soon finds himself turning his back on everything and everyone he holds dear, turning into the type of monster he fights. Soon he¿s lost in a world of designer super soldiers and designer drugs that tests his faith in himself. Though not mentioned in this story it is interesting that venom is later the drug that would help create Bane. O¿Neil and Von Eeden are at the top of their game with his brutal, cold story, that ranks among the great works by Miller such as Batman: Year One, and Batman: The Dark Knight Returns. It also is every bit as gritty as The Killing Joke. I can not recommend this strongly enough. Batman Venom reprints Batman Legends of the Dark Knight #16-20.

Batman: Venom puts Batman/Bruce Wayne in his first year where he fails to save a girl and resorts to the drug Venom. The graphic novel shows a side of Batman you rarely see in comics! Great to add to your collection!

The description given describes Shaman, not Venom. Venom is an inspiring story to anyone who has had, is having or needs a warning about the dangers of substance addiction. Dennis O'Neil scores with a masterpiece!
