Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Praise for Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo's BATMAN:

"This is a book you need to read. Whether you're a fan of comics or not."—Huffington Post

"One of the best Batman runs in the history of the character."—IGN

"A+. The hero's got personality (and is unafraid to release a quip as sharp as a Batarang), a horde of supervillains, gumption to spare and a whole host of high-tech gadgetry to suitably impress longtime fans and those new to the Dark Knight."—USA Today

"Brilliant. This is a modernization of Silver Age optimism replacing camp with today's dialogue expectations of introspection and smart wit. Pure comic gold."—Ain't it Cool News

    New 52 Origin

    This volume gives us a look at Bruce becoming the Batman in the New 52 but seems to be more of a set up for Dark City than anything.

    The Dark Knight saga continues even after I thought to have 24 of them already, but in addition to those 24 issues (see full details
    about this in my Batman Incorporated Volume 2 customer review, but for a whole story of my customer review saga, look in Allegiant,
    the Lightning Thief, Yu-Gi-Oh Zexal Volume 3 and Frozen the Junior Novelization in addition to Batman Incorporated Volume 2) I also
    received hundreds of Nook Sample Versions of Batman and other DC Super Heroes (including the rest of the Justice League
    members).

    Now I no longer have these issues and titles because the 24 issues were donated to Goodwill and the rest of the DC Universe (and a
    hint of Marvel) were deleted as Nook Samples. Thus my Summer Reading Program also continues, but digitally though. Hopefully I
    won't be so addicted to Trading Cards (as mentioned in one of the customer reviews I've made) in the future because apparently I'm
    too old for them and it must end immediately.

    Date of Origin: June 29, 2014 (same day as this issue's arrival)
