I see we've talked some about Batman Zero year over here. However, it seems to have gotten lost amongst other Batman talk. So I thought I'd start a thread devoted to Zero Year. I've read two issues so far and the annual which just slightly ties into the arc.

 

So far so good. It's a pretty interesting and fun take on Batman's origin. The back up stories of how Bruce acquired certain skills  are pretty clever.

 

I've got to go to work so I'll post some more thoughts later. In the meantime, if you've read any of the Zero Year, post your thoughts.

Caught up with issues 24-26 this weekend. The first part is closed out with the apparent death of the leader of the red hood gang. Then the lights go out in Gotham. We also meet a pretty disturbing character named Doctor Death.

The relationship between Alfred and Bruce seems to be getting better. However things between Gordon and Bruce/Batman are pretty rocky. We get a glimpse that in this version of the Batman mythos that Gordon may have had a checkered past.

I liked that bit myself. Even someone like me who gets tired of the "Its a small world after all" universe characters live in. I actually find this more interesting than Dr. Death who is okay I guess as a villain.
