Review Text

"This is a story no true Batman fan should be able to resist." School Library Journal
 
A gritty and atmospheric retelling of Batman s earliest days as told by the author of the seminal Dark Knight Returns (1987). Mazuzuccelli s art brings a new level of emotional instensity and realistic, muscular action. Booklist
 
Year One worked as a fine piece of urban crime fiction it was just a bonus that the arc also brought new depth to iconic characters that had been around for nearly 50 years. A.V. Club
 
[One of] the most influential Batman stories ever told. Vulture
 
You know that saying, "If you read just one book, this is the one to read"? Well, that applies to Batman: Year One. It's not only one of the most important comics ever written, it's also among the best IGN
 
The best thing that Miller has ever written about Batman is the Batman: Year One.   Wired.com
 
This may be the best Batman comic ever. io9

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.
