Review quote

"After successfully re-imagining the Man of Steel in Superman: Secret Origin, Geoff Johns and Gary Frank have unleashed their talents on Bruce Wayne and proven, once again, that under the right stewardship, the Batman legend is endlessly malleable. Alfred as a former Royal Marine. The Penguin as a genuinely creepy and sadistic villain. Awesome."--David S. Goyer, co-writer of Batman Begins, The Dark Knight Rises, and Man of Steel

"For the first time in a long time, you can see Batman's eyes. That may seem like a minor change. It's not. Johns and Frank know that the real appeal of Batman is what hides within him. Now they're letting us take a brand new, breathtaking peek ... inside and out."--Brad Meltzer

"Just when you thought there couldn't possibly be a fresh take on Batman, along come Johns & Frank to prove you extraordinarily wrong. Original, surprising and emotional, Batman: Earth One is a must-read."--Damon Lidelof, co-creator and executive producer of Lost "After successfully re-imagining the Man of Steel in Superman: "Secret Origin, " Geoff Johns and Gary Frank have unleashed their talents on Bruce Wayne and proven, once again, that under the right stewardship, the Batman legend is endlessly malleable.

Ick. I very much disliked this. Usually I love everything by Geoff Johns. I don't even get the point. I'm confused. Published in 2012, which is after the New 52 started, this is *another* re-imagining of the origins of Batman?! It is a stupid story; I hated all the characters especially Alfred and Harvey Bullock. The only thing good I can say about it is that the serial killer was pretty nifty.show more
