starkiller809's Batman #0 - Bright New Yesterday; Tomorrow review

Batman #0

THE GOOD: 
Greg Capullo's art is fantastic. He manages to define Gotham City in every panel and it makes the book feel much darker. He also manages to make a ridiculous costume look really good. The facial expressions are also very strong in this issue revealing a much younger Bruce Wayne and James Gordon. The story is no doubt a strong part of this issue as well. We see the Joker before, the Joker and it really ends on a cliff hanger that may be answered in Death of the Family. Bruce Wayne also comes off much different then he is currently and this is good because we can really see how he has evolved as a character. The backup also provides a little hint at everything that we know is going to happen and it makes you smile as well. 
 
THE BAD: 
Jason Todd is innocent, but the law probably doesn't see it that way. 
 
THE VERDICT: 5/5 (Perfect) 
Scott Snyder turned a issue that we all though would have no relevance to the highly anticipated Joker story arc and he pulls it off to where we are even more excited for the story. If you have been reading Batman but are going to skip this issue, you are going to be missing out. The ending of the first story alone, might have a connection to the story and it looks like it might be an interesting twist. I highly recommend this, and is the best comic of the week.

This story fleshes out what Bruce was doing when he fist came to Gotham and before he became Batman it's an interesting choice for a zero issue and it's really interesting. What makes this even better is the appearance of one of batman's old enemies (although I'm not saying who) but what makes the choice even better is the fact that they...

    More Background to the Beginning of Batman's Crusade 0

    I have loved this series and have been very pleased with the work Snyder has produced on this series. I wasn't a huge fan on his Detective run and didn't like what I read of his Swamp Thing series but he has certainly done a good job on this. This issue also has the amazing art work of Capullo which was sadly missing from the last issue.This story starts with a party getting crashed by a gang called the Red Hood gang (nothing to do with the Jason Todd Red Hood). They find out one of their member...
