Slaggmation Reviews: Batman: Earth One
The long-awaited untold tale of The Caped Crusader is finally here, but does it live up to the propaganda?
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.
Batman: Earth One delivers everything necessary in a comic book; It has the hero, the plot, and the evil mastermind who set the entire dilemma for the protagonist. Batman: Earth One is nearly 139 pages long and is written by Chief Creative Officer of DC Entertainment Geoff Johns and is illustrated by Gary Frank.
Gary Frank brings much to the table by showing off the streets of Gotham City with such an artistic style even giving real emotion to facial expressions of characters such as Lieutenant James Gordon. Frank does a splendid job with action sequences that involve hand-to-hand combat brawls in settings such as Arkham and the rooftops of Gotham City.
Geoff Johns also does a terrific job like always and gives his own re-imagination of iconic Batman characters such as Alfred Pennyworth who is better known for being the butler of Bruce Wayne. Johns also renders other characters into new renditions and brings a new antagonist and twist to the story and even delivers and ending that opens doors for a second volume.
I give Batman: Earth One a rating of a 9.5/10, the graphic novel was really good and I recommend all fans of Batman should pick this up the day it comes out.
