Format: Hardcover
You have to feel bad for Alfred Pennyworth. A one-legged ex-soldier saddled with the guardianship of his late friend's traumatized son, he hadn't signed up for surrogate parenthood on a visit to Gotham City. Likewise, Detective Jim Gordon had long ago learned to look the other way while the city went about the business of eating its young. He didn't need a gung-ho new partner -- former reality TV cop Harvey Bullock -- to start shaking things up and turning over stones that were better left ignored. Not in Mayor Oswald Cobblepot's city.

This neo-noir reboot of Batman's origin story is as dazzling a feat of reimaginative virtuosity as any comic I've read this year, more radical even than the various "Before Watchmen" miniseries. Bruce Wayne's Batman is sloppy, angry, almost out of control, but obsessed with bringing down the man who ordered the killings of mayoral candidate Thomas Wayne and his wife, and putting Gotham right. But his mother's family home, the crumbling, mazelike Arkham house, haunts Gotham like a hungry ghost, and now shelters a serial killer with a taste for adolescent girls.

Noir is the imaginative territory where our hopes and dreams go to get the crap kicked out of them, and in true noir even the winners have nothing to show for their efforts but another day of survival. While today's Batman stories are (and have been for a generation or two) urban cowboy fantasies with neo-noir trappings, our emotions take a beating in this story, especially when we learn the extent of the ongoing atrocities in the Arkham house. Geoff Johns's lean, hard, time-hopping narrative will be easier to follow the second time through, and that gives us another opportunity to savor Gary Frank's heavily Brian Bolland-influenced pencils (abetted by sensitive inks and colors from, respectively, Jonathan Sibal and Brad Anderson).

The book ends with a wonderful splash page teaser ad for volume two. Which I'm eagerly, eagerly awaiting.

If you're a Batman fan, or you're just new to the comic book Universe. I strongly suggest checking out Batman Earth One.
I'm not going to give away any spoilers, but it's an awesome direction Geoff takes in this reboot.

Just read it! You won't be disappointed.

I was expecting a similar experience to Superman: Earth One with this product. That is to say, a nice setup for future stories, solid art and character work, but an overall "just alright" experience. What a surprise Batman: Earth One was! I was absolutely gobsmacked by this take on Batman, Gotham and the residents of the crime-ridden town. The storyline is beautifully rendered by Gary Frank's realistic style, fantastic facial work and is coupled with an extremely original interpretation of a classic character. Without going into spoilers, this is a radically different Gotham than you are used to.
Batman: Earth One works both as fan service in subverting our expectations of characters, situations and locations and as an introduction to the Bat-world for anyone with cursory or no knowledge of Batman and his rogues. A few of my friends and family also enjoyed the graphic novel despite having little prior experience with the medium and character. I would not hesitate to recommend this to any fan of comics, Batman or those who have taken in the latest Caped Crusader's film and are hungry for more.

Format: Hardcover
This is yet another batman origin story done just different enough from the rest to be worth reading, but it doesn't stand out in any way. The villains in particular are forgettable. I have to say though that The supporting cast (Alfred, agent bullock) were really well done and aren't like anything we've seen previously. I'm not going to read it again anytime soon, and if I could go back I'd spend my money on something else.

Yes. Batman year one is better. No surprise. But this is another excellent take on Batman's origins. Great art. Can't wait for volume two whenever they decide to make it.
