I am in love with this zero year story, Scott Snyder is one of the best writers in comics right now! Well at least that's my opinion

Zero Year has been amazing so far, can't wait for more. CAPULLO IS A GOD!

MAC- They're rewriting Batman's beginings, and it obviously doesn't happen in 1940, if they were writing the series like that, Batman would be dead in modern times.
DangerDuck83 - 1/17/2014, 12:38 PM
Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo can do it all! Looks so damn good!
Klone - 1/17/2014, 12:39 PM

Yeah, but why does it say 6 years earlier? Why would this apparently take place in 1940!? Does this story even feature other Batman characters like Alfred, Gordon, Harvey, etc, etc.

Its saying that what is happening in Gotham is happening 6 years earlier than the current time. Tokyo 1946 probably plays into the story at some point.
Klone - 1/17/2014, 12:48 PM
Ah alright. The way it was done made it seem that way.
staypuffed - 1/17/2014, 12:50 PM
Never seen Capullo draw alluring ladies. I like it.

Nobody does that to Batman!
BaneSmash - 1/17/2014, 12:54 PM

Good art, the colors can be better but it' aight..
Interestein - 1/17/2014, 1:30 PM
The first two arcs were awesome, can't wait to get this one.
MarkV - 1/17/2014, 1:32 PM
As much as I enjoyed Miller's Batman year one, I prefer a more seasoned Batman. That being said, it's nice to see Batman get his ass handed to him. Batman is always coolest in the second round of a fight. After he's shaken off an early loss.

And Gusto, that is just so wrong man. Have you no shame, good sir?

JoeMomma29 - 1/17/2014, 1:42 PM
Maybe they will go back to Batman using a gun!

@MAC - Gordon is there, he's a luitenant still. Alfred is there, they're building the batcave and vehicles together right now. PICK UP THESE BOOKS! They're really damned good! Hope you check this thread again pally.
Indy - 1/17/2014, 2:25 PM
Amazing!!! can't wait to read love the art as always.
TheDpool - 1/17/2014, 2:38 PM
@MAC - Have you ever read a comic before? or are you just very slow its pretty obvious what it meant
aRandomSinisterClone - 1/17/2014, 3:25 PM

@indignantwaffle, wow what lazy plagerism by josh wilding. he should change his icon to shia labeouf. its more about being the 1st to post on here then what's in it.
seantwakafilmyguy - 1/17/2014, 3:28 PM
HOLY SHET! This is brilliant, I can't wait to buy this.
FlashFacts - 1/17/2014, 3:32 PM

TimDrake87 - 1/17/2014, 11:12 PM
It does feature other characters but this batman is completely different to miller's batman whilst the present day batman is very has quite a few similarities to miller's batman.
