I really felt that this story captured an interest facet of the Batman character. The art style is not typical for comic books and the story may seem a little plain for those looking for a Batman movie experience in paper form. If you are a little more sensitive a reader though you may enjoy this book. There were some points in the story where I felt the writer was trying a little too hard to be deep and dramatic. But overall they pulled this story off wonderfully.
