So what was the plot?
>>
I don't think you actually read the book.
>>
Are we talking high school? Because that's about the reading level you need to comprehend this.
>>
>>77745451
It was pretty bland and not worth the money that I paid to put it on my shelf. The best part was when Bruce goes after the asshole who tries to shoot the cat.
>>
>>77745451
Bruce and Gordon want to make Gotham a better place. They do it on their own. By the end they realize they can make a difference working together.
>>
Is Batman goth?
>>
>>77746920
No he's a vamp kid.
>>
Honestly Year One is the best Batman story ever written. It does everything right with Batman itself.

The thing I remember liking about it a lot was that Batman wasn't super reliant on gadgets and his wealth wasn't a huge focus in the story. Probably not surprising considering that Miller also liked writing Daredevil, he more than likely wanted to present Batman as a bit more vulnerable and a bit more "street" in a sense.
>>
>>77746947
Isn't that the movie version of a goth kid?
>>
>>77747068
No

Vamp kids are not goth. This has been discussed and explained before.
>>
>>77747108
Okay, because I'm pretty sure vamp kids want to be goth and goth kids dream about being vampires at one point or another, they look the same.
>>
>>77747170
Are we still making a reference, or no?
>>
>>77745451

uhh... an origin story of the batman as an identity???
>>
>>77746845
Man, what about that art, though? Mazz was already using that kind of European expressionistic linework, surely Mazzucchelli at the top of his (superhero) game isn't worth the money?
>>77746990
I think I agree, although I have a soft spot for the Wagner/Grant/Breyfogle 'Tec/Bats run, Year One is as closest to perfection as possible. Also perfect use of narration boxes as "thought bubbles"....but like I said, just look at that draftsmanship, and Mazz was, what, 24/25 when he drew the book? It's some of the most accomplished cape cartooning ever put to paper.
>>
>>77745451
Oh, and sorry to double-post but I read Dark Knight Returns (another Miller Bats work) when I was about, 9, I think it'd just been collected and there were lots of parts that I didn't fully understand 'til a coupla years later, even though I had a really high reading comprehension level at that age it was too sophisticated for 9 year-old me.
>>
>>77750513
>even though I had a really high reading comprehension level at that age
*tip*
>>
>>77746736
I did, But I still don't understand the story it was just Batman and Gordan kicking ass

>>77746741
>yes m8

>>77746865
That's a pretty 1 dimensional story

>>77747867
Didn't seem like it when I was reading it

>>77750513
I read the Dark knight it was kinda boring, felt slow paced, I guess it was because I put most of my hype "Batman vs Superman" (Although I liked the movie more )

>>77751447
Wow, your such a fucking faggot, holy shit.
>>
>>77751447
Sorry it wasn't deep enough for you. Sometimes it's alright to be straightforward.
>>
>>77751447
You can make any story sound 1 dimensional when you give a brief summary.Why did you love it then? Also the plot was Batman: Year One.
>>
>>77747108
FUCKING POSERS! GAW
>>
year one or dkr?
I like year one more, mostly because I vastly prefer Mazzuchelli as an artist, but DKR is legendary. Miller's art with Janson's inks has a huge sense of weight and there's a lot of visual motifs and symbolism encoded in it.

that all being said, i'm just a sucker for first few years batman stories
>>
>>77751788
Sorry about that......NOT!

>>77751950
The fights were the main reason why I enjoyed it
>>
>>77752706
That SWAT fight was pretty cool. Did you like Gordon at all? I loved seeing things from his perspective.
>>
>>77751973
DKR
Mazz might be a better artist as in designer, and equally good as storyteller as miller in general... but DKR was on a whole different level
>>
>>77753020
Gordan was cool, I like just about all of his fights but my favorite had to be where he was about to get jump
>>
>>77753315
I loved when he beat the crap out of Flass later.
