Most Helpful Customer Reviews
A lot of times publishers try to strike lightning twice. Batman: Year One was such a huge critical and probably financial success that DC Comics and other companies have tried many times to do other properties "Year One" style. I don't think they've been successful overall. Here, however, Andy Diggle and Jock have crafted such a remarkable story that this belongs right along with Frank Miller & Davis Mazzucchelli's Batman story. Diggle's version of Oliver Queen is maybe my favorite. His turn from nearly worthless socialite to emerald archer is fantastic. Jock's art is fantastic and fits perfectly. Overall, this book is tremendous. I can't imagine someone not liking this book!
