This is a great read for any Batman fan. It takes place during his early years.

Batman: Prey, is yet another solid book that takes place during the `Year: One¿ timeframe. Still alone except for Alfred, Batman has not yet earned Gotham City¿s trust. That leads him down a dangerous path as psychologist Hugo Strange leads a police hunt to bring the Caped Crusader to justice once and for all. By obsessions lurk everywhere, and for some in this story, obsessions prove deadly. Doug Moench and Paul Gulacy do a great job of providing a dense, rich read. They also conspire to highlight this very dark work with some moments of bright, delightful comedy in such a way that is not out of place with the rest of the work. Some character highlights include the creation of the Batsignal, and further bonding between Gordon and Batman. Catwoman appears briefly throughout, but she seems out of place in the story, just flittering in and out without doing much at all. This volume could be enjoyed by a newcomer to the Batman mythos, or a veteran collector, but silhouetted nudity might not make it appropriate for very young children. Recommended.

Very enjoyable read. I've definitely enjoyed the 80s and 90s collections of Batman. The newer stuff, exception being the court of owls, has not done it for me at all. If you've enjoyed year one and the long halloween, then pick this up too. It actually has two stories, prey and terror. Both center on the very early years of Batman. The cops still don't fully trust Batman, however Jim Gordon does and tries to vouch for him despite the mayor's protest. Prey introduces Hugo Strange and how tries to deduce Batman's identity while framing him for crimes to break him psychologically. Terror is the follow up to prey and is surprisingly also very good. Both are 5 part stories. Pick this novel up, you won't be disappointed.
