DISCUSSION:
Batman: Earth One
Writer: Geoff Johns
Artist: Gary Frank
Publisher: DC Comics
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.

In the tradition of the #1 New York Times bestselling Superman: Earth One, writer Geoff Johns and artist Gary Frank re-imagine a new mythology for the Dark Knight, where the familiar is no longer the expected in this long-awaited original graphic novel from DC Comics.

    I just read Batman Earth One and loved it! I am a fan of the movies but have never picked up a Batman comic before. I am really glad you discussed it on the show or I wouldn’t have picked it up this time. Thanks for the great reviews! Torq rules! Oh… sorry wrong show. :-P
