"The dark prince of comix takes Batman thirty years into the future ... Pope's grim style is perfectly suited to drawing Batman."

Format: Paperback
Batman has represented dozens of things over his various incarnations, and this take, which presents him as the last unknown entity in a world where nothing is private, will (I strongly doubt) ever be considered the definitive interpretation but it sure is a hell of a lot of fun.

Characterisation is light, we know who the characters are and it allows the story to hit the ground running. A pace which the comic maintains as the authorities become delightfully frustrated and batman becomes beaten, bloodied, and exhauseted but just keeps going.

Not only does Paul Pope maintain the grit and grime of his black and white artwork but also the character and presence, there isn't a panel that could be mistaken for another artist, it's lush, dark and dynamic. I'd also venture there's something from hong kong action and gangster flims mixed in, but the author makes every influence into something that's so much his own that it's hard to tell.

In summary, this is a brilliant realisation of the character and after DKR/Batman Gothic probably my favourtie Batman TPB.

There's even the Berlin Batman story included as an extra!

Format: Paperback
Set in 2039 (100 years after Batman debuted in Detective Comics #27 in 1939), Gotham has become a police state and the overbearing authorities know everything about everyone. A cop is killed and Batman is suspected as he was at the scene - an obvious frame job. It's also the first appearance he has made in public for years and people have forgotten his existence - is the mythological Batman real? He is nonetheless hunted by psychic cops, robot dogs, and other futuristic crime-fighting tools. In the course of finding the real killer, Batman discovers that there's a doomsday weapon being sold on the black market by the (clearly corrupt) cops in charge. Will he stop them in time...?

Year 100 is a very uneven book that I really wanted to like. There's the dystopian future angle, and the attention-grabbing title adding to the mystery of whether Batman is still Bruce Wayne (it couldn't be - could it?), both of which I liked, but while this is an initially exciting story, as it goes on Paul Pope keeps readers at a distance from the characters and this world by revealing very little information about them.

How did things get to this point - Gotham as a police state? What event triggered such an extreme reaction? If this is Bruce Wayne as Batman, how is that possible - Wayne would be somewhere around 120-150 years old, so who is Batman? What happened to his fortune? What of the rogues like the Joker? What happened to the Justice League? We're never told the answers to any of these questions.

So it's quite a limited view of the future.

My favourite Batman storyline so far. I'm new to Paul Pope's work, but was intrigued by the art style and the premise of Batman Year 100. This is a fast moving story set in the near future, with exciting artwork and characterisations. You should buy this, no question.

Firstly i just want to point out i only occasionly buy and read graphic novels...

I found this to be a thrilling and inventive take the Batman legend, putting the caped crusader into a future dystopian Gotham. The artwork is loose but flows in a way that gives the action scenes great vitality and each page is packed with interesting ideas, robot dogs, telepathic fbi agents, and a batman without the hightech gadgets.

What i liked the most is you dont really find out who or what this batman is, at first anyway, so he is creepy and allusive.
A great read worthy of second visits
