Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Praise for Scott Snyder's Batman:

"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

"[Writer Scott Snyder] pulls from the oldest aspects of the Batman myth, combines it with sinister-comic elements from the series' best period, and gives the whole thing terrific forward-spin by setting up an honest-to-gosh mystery for Batman to solve."—Entertainment Weekly

Praise for Scott Snyder's American Vampire:

"At a time when vampire stories engulf pop culture, this one's actually fresh and original"—Entertainment Weekly

"American Vampire is full of amazing dialogue and great characterization, simply an amazing book that begs to be picked up."—Ain't It Cool News
