> Does anyone agree with me that Batman: Year One is a little bit overrated. I do think it's pretty good, and I really like the (Jim) Gordon parts, but I don't really see why people hold this storyline as the best or second best Batman story. It did have really good art. Maybe I'll re-read it again, but I think the Long Halloween was better.

Personally I think it is an amazing story.I think it helps to take into account the time of its release.At the time Batman NEEDED to be brought back to street level.That book did it.

However my favorite is the original Dark Knight Returns.That book captured its time perfectly,using the Batman mythos to comment on the culture of America in the 80's.Great stuff.

Year One was good. Not exceptional, but good. The Long Halloween and Dark Victory are the two that really blew my mind. And it would be wrong for me not to mention Hush. Shame they really ruined a good character there.
