    It s not your Daddy s Batman We all know Batman s origin story Joe Chill, the string of clutched pearls falling to the sidewalk, a young boy witnessing his parents murders We all know this is the beginning of the Batman Geoff John s Batman Earth One remixes, remakes and remolds the Bat s mythos, and, for the most part, he is largely successful.Genealogies are changed Backstories are thrown out Alfred is embittered, Gordon is almost unrecognizable, Bullock is a heartthrob And let s not It s not your Daddy s Batman We all know Batman s origin story Joe Chill, the string of clutched pearls falling to the sidewalk, a young boy witnessing his parents murders We all know this is the beginning of the Batman Geoff John s Batman Earth One remixes, remakes and remolds the Bat s mythos, and, for the most part, he is largely successful.Genealogies are changed Backstories are thrown out Alfred is embittered, Gordon is almost unrecognizable, Bullock is a heartthrob And let s not even attempt to describe Cobblepot.These changes are unsettling at first, but they shake things up enough to throw the reader for a loop Martha Wayne s life is of particular interest and has a lasting impact on not only Bruce, but on Gotham City as well Geoff John s Bruce is soft, weak, and unprepared We rarely see Bruce as a failure, but he fails spectacularly here Here he is foolhardy, stubborn, and impulsive He lands in trash bins rather than on rooftops Bruce is bound and determined, but he s hardly the smartest Batman we ve seen.What is refreshing about this volume of Earth One, is not seeing the costumed crazies that populate the pages of other takes on this story There is no mention of Joker or the Catwoman Madhatter, Killer Croc and Two Face are not even blimps on the radar What we get is a straight forward Batman versus a serial killer story and it is creepy But the biggest villain Batman faces is Gotham City herself Is this a perfect story No But, there is greatness here Earth One is an edgier, grittier,contemporary take on Batman s origin John s Batman is the angriest Batman I have read to date The real star here is artist Gary Frank He draws and amazing Batman His Gotham is spectacularly drawn he brings every detail of this tragic city to life The details in his drawings are rich Frank may be my favorite of the contemporary artists now drawing the Bat Frank brings this Gotham City to life like only he can.Not everyone will approve of this take on Batman But as an alternate universe Batman story, it s very good

    Thank God.I ve had a shitty reading week I really needed for something to not suck And Batman Earth One did not suck.The reimagining of Batman s origin was interesting, the story was crisp and engaging, and the artwork was stunning.It was a slice of heaven ExceptWhy the hell did Gary Frank feel the need to make Bruce Wayne look like Christopher Reeve I understood his creepy fanboy art when he drew Superman Secret Origin However, it makes no sense in a Batman comic.Stop it already, Frank Thank God.I ve had a shitty reading week I really needed for something to not suck And Batman Earth One did not suck.The reimagining of Batman s origin was interesting, the story was crisp and engaging, and the artwork was stunning.It was a slice of heaven ExceptWhy the hell did Gary Frank feel the need to make Bruce Wayne look like Christopher Reeve I understood his creepy fanboy art when he drew Superman Secret Origin However, it makes no sense in a Batman comic.Stop it already, Frank We get that you loved ReeveStill, I highly recommended that this one gets moved to the top of your to read shelf

    Holy great book, Batman This is the first volume in a DC Comics Elseworlds series, setting Batman in a different Earth than the used for its main storyline Instead of being a monthly comic book title, it s published as a graphic novel per volumes with non determined publishing schedule.Creative Team Writer Geoff JohnsIllustrator Gary Frank A TALE AS OLD AS CRIME I think that the best thing about Batman character, his origin, his interesting cast of supporting characters, and the rest Holy great book, Batman This is the first volume in a DC Comics Elseworlds series, setting Batman in a different Earth than the used for its main storyline Instead of being a monthly comic book title, it s published as a graphic novel per volumes with non determined publishing schedule.Creative Team Writer Geoff JohnsIllustrator Gary Frank A TALE AS OLD AS CRIME I think that the best thing about Batman character, his origin, his interesting cast of supporting characters, and the rest of his dark world, is that it can be not only being updated and or addapted for each generation, but also it can always being added delicious details, here and there, keeping the pretty same basic tale presented at the end of the 1930 s, but each timepowerful,intriguing,twisted.I loved this new take of Batman s origin, doing bold and brave changes, adding new characters, adding new angles for known characters, developing new graphic designs to the characters and elements, but at the bottom, it s still Batman as it was too when the comic book title began in 1939.The graphic novel acomplishes to show a very human Batman, where he is on his very first days as the Caped Crusader, making mistakes, needing help to perfectionate his gadgets and even focused only into avenging his parents murders and not looking to fight a war on crime in general THE WAYNES AS DEEP AS NEVER BEFORE You think that you knew all the needed stuff about the Wayne Family, but once you readandabout the twisting background of the Waynes, in special Martha Wayne and her own family side, you know when you re into a treat for this book.An interesting detail in this version is that Wayne Enterprise is focused on medical technology, that I think is quite logical since Thomas Wayne studied Medicine, but in the past versions, you only know that Wayne Enterprises was a profitable company but always it was blurred about the specified fields of industrial development.And even it s logically explained how an Alfred Pennyworth, so skillful in military training, could be ended as a butler in a rich family manor PERFECT SUPPORT One of the most powerful elements in Batman books has been the quite well established gallery of support characters, not only the villains but also the regular people living at Gotham City.And in this impressive graphic novel is no exception but even exceptional in the way to exploit in logical needed roles for known villains, but also the twisting but logical addition of new characters that you have to think How the heck this wasn t thought before It s so logical and perfect.Definitely a masterpiece

    Nowadays portraying Batman as anything less than a total badass is not de rigueur therefore, Geoff John s back to the drawing board Batman as candy assed greenhorn crime fighter shows a bit of game.Bruce Wayne s new at the pummeling ne er do wells into unconsciousness thing, so he s bat grappling by the seat of his pants therefore, coming to behind the Gotham City Waffle House takes some adjusting too.Note to Batman At least you re still wearing pants.He s single minded in his attempt to take Nowadays portraying Batman as anything less than a total badass is not de rigueur therefore, Geoff John s back to the drawing board Batman as candy assed greenhorn crime fighter shows a bit of game.Bruce Wayne s new at the pummeling ne er do wells into unconsciousness thing, so he s bat grappling by the seat of his pants therefore, coming to behind the Gotham City Waffle House takes some adjusting too.Note to Batman At least you re still wearing pants.He s single minded in his attempt to take revenge on those responsible for his parents death..and even has to prove himself to a less quippy,bad ass Alfred.Batman s got a long way to go before the bat spark plugs are firing on the metaphorical bat mobile Alright Okay He s still Batman.And he s headed in the right direction.Bottom line Unlike some of my friends read Anne , I ve never been much of a fan of Geoff Johns he s put out decent stuff but never anything to really wow me Super hero origin stories are always ripe for a re boot and it s curious to see how much the creator is willing to rework the original tale and how inventive they can be with the character elements that have been around for decades John s does a decent job, but just how many times can these iconic characters origin stories get a shiny paint job An wer the ky the limit I wish Geoff Johns was this good all the time

    Starting with the positives the art work is great, the plot is strong, and villains are truly despicable You see thecold blooded side of the Penguin I am all for modernising characters, to make themrealistic and relatable, but I don t feel they got Batman right at the core I understand that he is young, inexperienced, emotional angry and sloppy This take on Batman is Bruce dressing up in a bat costume and deciding to take on the Gotham underworld When the thing about Batman is Starting with the positives the art work is great, the plot is strong, and villains are truly despicable You see thecold blooded side of the Penguin I am all for modernising characters, to make themrealistic and relatable, but I don t feel they got Batman right at the core I understand that he is young, inexperienced, emotional angry and sloppy This take on Batman is Bruce dressing up in a bat costume and deciding to take on the Gotham underworld When the thing about Batman is that Batman is the true personality and Bruce is the disguise.This batman is not the consummate planner, he does not care about tactics, he see an opportunity and jumps in head first andoften than not falls face first I also did not like the fact they there is not kind of emotional bonding between Bruce and Alfred This Alfred is colder, then the dapper Mr Pennyworth we are used to,at home in comfortable jeans or function clothes then the black suited butler All we are told about Bruce s training is Alfred is a former Royal Marine and he trained him, and aged the one legged Alfred whips the 21 year old Bruce in a fist fight because he fights too emotionally The person who shows the most development is Detective Gordan from a scared broken down cop to gruff tough cop we all know All in this entire book feltlike a filler then strong stand alone story As much as I hate to admit it Superman Earth One Superman Limited Gns DC Comics R was a lot better

    3.5 stars Soooooooooooo Earth one, by Geoff.Not bad, not bad indeed You get to see young little Bruce be a little shit then his parents get killed because he was being a little shit Slight exaggeration, but it gives better prospective to his guilt.I wasn t hot on the artwork for the characterisations, apart from maybe cobblepot I liked that it wasadult themed and I enjoyed the fact that they themed and framed it about the death of his parents, almost like a year one.The way bullock was 3.5 stars Soooooooooooo Earth one, by Geoff.Not bad, not bad indeed You get to see young little Bruce be a little shit then his parents get killed because he was being a little shit Slight exaggeration, but it gives better prospective to his guilt.I wasn t hot on the artwork for the characterisations, apart from maybe cobblepot I liked that it wasadult themed and I enjoyed the fact that they themed and framed it about the death of his parents, almost like a year one.The way bullock was portrayed was excellent, I even felt sorry for him.One question though, does Geoff not get bored of writing for DC only

    Batman is just a man, his legend unbuilt Bruce Wayne, young and arrogant, makes mistakes, takes bullets, and falls from buildings to discover the truth And with the help of Alfred, ex mercenary, he finds it.

    Back in the day Earth 2 was where the Justice Society of America lived separately from the Justice League of America on Earth 2 but then that all changed after FINAL CRISIS and a number of other graphic novels too long to list here.Tale focuses upon a very new Batman who is trying to find out if his parents were murdered by a Mayor Cobblepot yeah, The Penguin but he s thinner in the artwork He s still learning to use gadgets he designed himself and the tale opens with him making a big mistake Back in the day Earth 2 was where the Justice Society of America lived separately from the Justice League of America on Earth 2 but then that all changed after FINAL CRISIS and a number of other graphic novels too long to list here.Tale focuses upon a very new Batman who is trying to find out if his parents were murdered by a Mayor Cobblepot yeah, The Penguin but he s thinner in the artwork He s still learning to use gadgets he designed himself and the tale opens with him making a big mistake as a superhero.Alfred is ex military and trains Bruce with some reluctance He isn t much of a stodgy butler The best part about this tale is that it flips a lot of typical Batman elements around yet keeps things we know well enough to stabilize the tale and not force a huge information dump upon the reader Vivid artwork by Gary Frank and written by Geoff Johns ARTWORK PRESENTATION B plus to A minus STORY PLOTTING PANELS B plus CHARACTERS DIALOGUE B plus to A minus ACTION SCENES B to B plus BATMAN MYTHOLOGY B plus OVERALL GRADE B plus WHEN READ early December 2013

    Not really my favorite Batman cycle Just OK But them, I read it in French so perhaps the original English would bump it up a star or two.

    Well, that was pretty awesome Another Batman Origin story But since I haven t read any others I went into this without any baggage.Well, of course I know the character And I m accustomed to him being very dark and very bad ass But here he s still trying to find his feet And it led to a few awkward moments in the beginning.Anyone else thinking of Dirty Dancing here Well, he doesn t end up in the lake or in Patrick Swayze s arms This is Gotham City And Gotham City is what made Batman And i Well, that was pretty awesome Another Batman Origin story But since I haven t read any others I went into this without any baggage.Well, of course I know the character And I m accustomed to him being very dark and very bad ass But here he s still trying to find his feet And it led to a few awkward moments in the beginning.Anyone else thinking of Dirty Dancing here Well, he doesn t end up in the lake or in Patrick Swayze s arms This is Gotham City And Gotham City is what made Batman And it s the same here As we once again see him losing his parents I was dreading that scene and it was done very well, I think.The murder of the Waynes is the driving force for several characters in this book But there are other abominable things going on.And so Bats and the cops better hit the ground running.The development of all the characters over a mere 144 pages is ultimately what makes this book stand out for me.Add to it the truly fantastic artwork and I m really looking forward to pick up the second volume.Oh, and the bad ass Alfred in this one That was rather cool He has And I think he s going to teach Bruce quite a few things
