Format: Paperback
This is a surprisingly good Batman graphic novel. Initially the artwork of the main cover put me off a little bit, and so did the fact that the origin story of Two-Face has been covered quite a few times.
However, this is a book that i really enjoyed. It is split in to two separate stories and they do not overlap in anyway, so don't expect a team up of Two-Face and the Scarecrow going against Batman. What it deals with is the two origin stories of the the two bad guys.
As i mentioned, Two-Face has been given plenty of time elsewhere in classic Batman stories outlined in Batman: The Long Halloween, and Batman: Dark Victory. But this story sort of picks up where they left off and shows Two-Face trying to be elected as District Attorney. And it is quite an interesting choice, as we have the decidedly unhinged Two-Face and a corrupt candidate, Mort Weinstein. The story shows this, but also a lot of Harvey Dent's past before the start of the storyline that created Two-Face. There are visits to the psychiatrist to unravel the darkness he feels inside himself, and a lot of inter-play with a younger Bruce Wayne. It is very cleverly done, and quite interesting to read.
In the other section of the book, the origins of the Scarecrow are dealt with. I liked this section a little bit more than the Two-Face story, mainly because Jonathan Crane's past has had less coverage than Harvey Dent's.Again, it has flashbacks into the past in as Batman tries to solve a kidnapping by the Scarecrow. I won't spoil the twists and turns in this section, but i think it is a good read, and one worth discovering on your own. It is much more in keeping with Batman's Dark Knight Detective persona, rather than the well-trained fighter side of his character.

Now I love Batman and have read lots of Bat related graphic novels but this one is awful.
Well specifically, it's half awful. The Scarecrow story is alright and would get 3 stars but the Two-Face tale terrible, barely a one.
Foe instance while Batman tussles with Two-Face, 4 barely armed cops take on a roomful of Gotham superpowered villains like Solomon Grundy, ClayFace, Killer Croc, Mr Freeze, Poison Ivy and Man-Bat and win!
Really, spend your money on something else.

Batman: Two-Face and Scarecrow: Year One Review 22 Jun. 2014
By Kady Turner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
"I haven't read any of the Batman year one stuff, but I don't really see the point in them since I already know what happened, and we all know that Batman lives so goodbye dramatic tension. Then again you could say..."
