Absolute Batman Year One


Formats & editions


One of the most important and critically acclaimed graphic novels of all time is now presented in a stunning Absolute edition. 

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 oversize Absolute edition includes artist David Mazzucchelli's original pencil pages, sketches and script pages from Frank Miller, along with other bonus materials, all presented in a gorgeous slipcase. Collects BATMAN #404-407.

Praise for Absolute Batman Year One

“"A gritty and atmospheric retelling of Batman's earliest days, as told by the author of the seminal DARK KNIGHT RETURNS. Mazzucchelli's art brings a new level of emotional intensity and realistic, muscular action." --Booklist "If there is one book that deserves mention in the same breath as WATCHMEN or THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS, it's BATMAN: YEAR ONE." --Miami Herald "This is a story no true Batman fan should be able to resist." --School Library Journal "You know that saying, 'If you read just one book, this is the one to read'? Well, that applies to BATMAN: YEAR ONE. It's not only one of the most important comics ever written, it's also among the best." --IGN "There's never been storytelling quite like this. It took someone who views comics as an art to create it." -- The Washington Post”
