"The staggering storytelling of Frank Miller... quality stuff!" NME"
The story of Gotham City's Dark Knight ... who he is and how he came to be. One of the most successful and critically acclaimed Batman stories of all - now back in print. From master storyteller Frank Miller comes the most incredible Batman story of all ... one that at last reveals the truth behind the Dark Knight's very first year as a crimefighter!
Lieutenant James Gordon takes up a new post in the crime-ridden and corrupt city of Gotham, while billionaire Bruce Wayne returns to the scene of his parent's deaths, intent on punishing the criminal element. Each faces trials and challenges of their own, only for their lives to become irrevocably and potentially tragically intertwined. And as the shadow of the bat falls on Gotham, so a legend is born.
