5.0 out of 5 stars prelude to Sin City, January 2, 2000
This review is from: Batman: Year One (Paperback)
This book is an excellent read for me. It focuses less on Batman and more on Jim Gordon. It sets up Gordon as a man instead of someone Batman can get info from. What Miller did for Batman in The Dark Knight, he does here for Jim Gordon. The Gotham Police Department is truely shown as the cesspool af graft and corruption it was always reputed to be. It works great as a kind of for runner to Miller's SinCity tales in later years. It is also a great lead in to Jeph Loeb and Tim Sales excellent "The Long Halloween" and "Dark Victory" stories. Mazzucchelli's art is simple and powerful. Batman looks like a guy in a funny costume with a cape, yet it somhow works. I just wish Miller had a little more room to tell his story. There is only one real action scene, when Bats is cornered by the police. still, it is very good and well worth a read for all Miller and Batman fans.
