Review: Batman: Year One (Batman)

User Review  - Montse - Goodreads

3.5 So, my first Batman comic and it was pretty good, not great but if somebody knows nothing about the character it must be marvelous. However, it was entertaining and explains a lot about the relationship between Gordon and Bruce, and also a good background of Selina. Read full review
