This review is from: Batman Year One Hundred TP (Paperback)
This book plays brilliantly with the Batman legend by weaving the changing styles, costumes, characters and key canon storylines into the fabric of its elseworlds Gotham. While the book is undoubtedly for the fans (and you will get the most out of it if you know a lot about the characters and can spot the references), the story is still compelling enough without these knowing winks. At its heart Year One Hundred is a great detective adventure story.
While Paul Pope's artwork may not be everyone's cup of tea, personally I think his style is a perfect for Batman. It feels dangerous, weird and scary; exactly as Gotham should. Happy to recommend it.
