Book SynopsisA #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER Batman is not a hero. He is just a man. Fallible, vulnerable, and angry. In a Gotham City where friend and foe are indistinguishable, Bruce Wayne's path toward becoming the Dark Knight is riddled with more obstacles than ever before. Focused on punishing his parents' true killers, and the corrupt police that allowed them to go free, Bruce Wayne's thirst for vengeance fuels his mad crusade and no one, not even Alfred, can stop him. In the tradition of the #1 New York Times bestselling Superman: Earth One, writer Geoff Johns and artist Gary Frank re-imagine a new mythology for the Dark Knight, where the familiar is no longer the expected in this long-awaited original graphic novel from DC Comics.
"Geoff Johns, the chief creative officer at DC Comics, has written us a Batman for Earth One that will knock your socks off. --Huffington PostJohns has planned well beyond this first chapter, and the worst part about the end of this title is the long wait until the next installment." --The AV Club "Geoff Johns and Gary Frank's Batman: Earth One is here, and best of all, has been worth the wait." --IGN "Gary Frank's fantastic art is the best thing about Batman: Earth One." --Crave Online
