Description

A "New York Times" Best Seller! A new trade paperback edition of one of the most important and critically acclaimed Batman adventures ever, written by Frank Miller, author of THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS! In 1986, Frank Miller and David Mazzucchelli produced this groundbreaking reinterpretation of the origin of Batman -- who he is and how he came to be. Written shortly after THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS, Miller's dystopian fable of Batman's final days, Year One set the stage for a new vision of a legendary character. This edition includes the complete graphic novel, a new introduction by writer Frank Miller and a new illustrated afterword by artist David Mazzucchelli. Completing this collection are over 40 pages of never-before-seen developmental material such as character and layout sketches, sample script pages, sketches, and more that pro-vide a glimpse into the making of this contemporary classic. This volume collects Batman #404-407.show more

About Frank Miller

Frank Miller began his career in comics in the late 1970s and rose to fame while first drawing, and then writing, "Daredevil" for Marvel Comics. He was also the creative force behind "Batman: The Dark Knight""Returns," "Batman: Year One," and "Batman: The Dark Knight Strikes Again." His many works have not only redefined classic characters, but also, on a few occasions, revitalized the comics industry. His creator-owned "Sin City" hit the page in 1991, and then the silver screen in 2005 -- with Miller on board as co-director. His multi-award-winning "300 "graphic novel was brought to full-blooded life in the 2007 motion picture of the same name, and in 2008 he directed the feature film of "Will Eisner's The Spirit." David Mazzucchelli drew his first professional comic book while majoring in painting at the Rhode Island School of Design. After a handful of jobs for Marvel and DC Comics, he became the regular artist on Marvel's "Daredevil," where he first collaborated with writer Frank Miller to produce the highly successful and critically acclaimed seven-part story "Born Again." David's most recent project is the self-published "Rubber Blanket." His work on BATMAN and "Daredevil" has earned him both an American Comic Book Award and Spain's Haxtur Prize. In 2009, Pantheon Books published Mazzucchelli's "Asterios Polyp, "which was met with critical acclaim. In 2010, "Asterios Polyp "won three Eisner Awards for Best Graphic Album-New, Best Writer/Artist, Best Lettering.show more
