Just in time for Batman Day 2017, one of the most important and critically acclaimed graphic novels of all time is now presented in a new deluxe hardcover edition, including many of the extras and bonus materials from Absolute Batman: Year One.
A rookie Batman must forge his own legacy in Gotham City amidst rampant crime and police corruption in Frank Miller and David Mazzucchelli’s masterful graphic novel.
In 1986, Frank Miller and David Mazzucchelli produced this groundbreaking reinterpretation of the origin of Batman–who he is and how he came to be. Written shortly after The Dark Knight Returns, Miller’s dystopian fable of Batman’s final days, Year One set the stage for a new vision of a legendary character.
This new edition includes artist David Mazzucchelli’s original pencil pages, sketches and script pages from Frank Miller, along with other bonus materials. Collects Batman #404-407.
The book will be released on September 12, 2017 and retail for $49.99.
