  • Holy great book, Batman This is the first volume in a DC Comics Elseworlds series, setting Batman in a different Earth than the used for its main storyline Instead of being a monthly comic book title, it s published as a graphic novel per volumes with non determined publishing schedule.Creative Team Writer Geoff JohnsIllustrator Gary FrankA TALE AS OLD AS CRIMEI think that the best thing about Batman character, his origin, his interesting cast of supporting characters, and the rest of his dark w [...]


  • Thank God.I ve had a shitty reading week I really needed for something to not suck And Batman Earth One did not suck.The reimagining of Batman s origin was interesting, the story was crisp and engaging, and the artwork was stunning.It was a slice of heaven.ExceptWhy the hell did Gary Frank feel the need to make Bruce Wayne look like Christopher Reeve I understood his creepy fanboy art when he drew Superman Secret Origin However, it makes no sense in a Batman comic.Stop it already, Frank We get t [...]


  • Nowadays portraying Batman as anything less than a total badass is not de rigueur therefore, Geoff John s back to the drawing board Batman as candy assed greenhorn crime fighter shows a bit of game.Bruce Wayne s new at the pummeling ne er do wells into unconsciousness thing, so he s bat grappling by the seat of his pants therefore, coming to behind the Gotham City Waffle House takes some adjusting too.Note to Batman At least you re still wearing pants.He s single minded in his attempt to take re [...]

  • It s not your Daddy s BatmanWe all know Batman s origin story Joe Chill, the string of clutched pearls falling to the sidewalk, a young boy witnessing his parents murders We all know this is beginning of the Batman Geoff John s Batman Earth One remixes remakes and remodels the Bath s mythos, and for the most part, he is largely successful.Genealogies are changed Backstories are thrown out Alfred is embittered, Gordon is almost unrecognizable, Bullock is a heartthrob And let s not even attempt to [...]


  • 3.5 stars Soooooooooooo Earth one, by Geoff.Not bad, not bad indeed You get to see young little Bruce be a little shit then his parents get killed because he was being a little shit Slight exaggeration, but it gives better prospective to his guilt.I wasn t hot on the artwork for the characterisations, apart from maybe cobblepot I liked that it was adult themed and I enjoyed the fact that they themed and framed it about the death of his parents, almost like a year one.The way bullock was portray [...]


  • Back in the day Earth 2 was where the Justice Society of America lived separately from the Justice League of America on Earth 2 but then that all changed after FINAL CRISIS and a number of other graphic novels too long to list here.Tale focuses upon a very new Batman who is trying to find out if his parents were murdered by a Mayor Cobblepot yeah, The Penguin but he s thinner in the artwork He s still learning to use gadgets he designed himself and the tale opens with him making a big mistake as [...]


  • You can find my review on my blog by clicking here.Let s get something out of the way Sometimes, you just got to dive into a book without having expectations Expectations are destructive and prone to send you reeling down deception and disappointment It is true that one out a thousand times, expectations has you jittering, at the edge of your seat and ready to jump out of the comfort of your bed and sky rocket through the concrete ceiling This isn t due to the fact that the author conveyed a sto [...]


  • This had strong writing and great art I have no major complaints My Batman critical meter is high and I felt that while it did revisit the genesis of Batman with some unique tweaks, it really concentrates what makes Bruce Wayne Batman who he is You see Bruce as a raw vigilante, making plenty of mistakes, with a worried Alfred looking on and discouraging his kamikaze approach I liked how prominent Alfred s role is in the story It almost seems to go closer in the direction of Gotham , but still wi [...]


  • Batman Earth One is essentially a reworking of Batman s origin with enough tweaks to recognize it, but with enough differences to make it quite different than the origin we ve all read hundreds of times It seems to combine elements from Frank Miller s Batman Year One and Christopher Nolan s Batman Begins, adding material to make the story unique At the start of his crime fighting career, this Batman is far less experienced he s quite human and gets hurt, alot This makes the character much inte [...]


  • Is this still my Batman Geoff Johns hotly anticipated Batman Earth One is a familiar tale barely Don t get me wrong you ve got the right notes being hit Bruce s parents being murdered, his desire to wage a war on crime, Alfred s unwavering dedication to Bruce but it s the key that s different This Batman origin tale is not unlike finding yourself in a place you ve visited before, long ago And instead of finding it as you left it, the world has changed into something disturbingly familiar Disturb [...]


  • I haven t read a lot of Batman stuff, so I can t really judge how this one is compared to the others, but what I can say is that, I absolutely enjoyed this Batman Earth One is Bruce Wayne s origin story Yeah Origin stories have been done multiple times, and I get it if you re going to roll your eyes and say, Shit Not again But hear me out, this is not like any Batman origin story I have seen yet But you also keep in mind that my knowledge of Batman s origins depended solely on what the movies ha [...]


  • How many times can DC tell Batman s origin story Apparently, they haven t hit critical mass yet At least Johns s take is actually good, and has some interesting new twists The differences show up early on Alfred isn t a genteel butler, he s a former soldier who served with Thomas Wayne The Wayne s aren t murdered by a random mugger, but as part of a political assassination Gordon isn t exactly on the make, but neither is he a spotless cop in a sea of corruption They might seem like small tweaks, [...]


  • Many fan boys don t like it when writers mess around with their favorite characters and try something new But for me, one of the most frustrating things about getting into superhero stories are the convoluted histories and plot lines, so I always welcome a restart DC s Earth One line of graphic novels do just that They take our popular heroes and granting mostly complete freedom to the writers to start from scratch and bring entirely new ideas to the characters for the modern era In this first v [...]


  • Earth One puts Batman in a parallel universe where his well known story is flipped around so different aspects of it read differently to the Batman canon This is Year One written another way and Geoff Johns does a fine job with it.Bruce Wayne s parents were killed by an unknown murderer and Bruce was raised by his parents faithful friend Alfred When he becomes a man he decides to hunt down his parents killer and bring him to justice while wearing a suit designed to terrify He will become the Bat [...]



  • Geoff Johns is a golden god But Batman is just a man His legend has yet to be built There s no Joe Chill in this universe, but the Waynes were still murdered Bruce Wayne, a cocksure young man, makes mistakes, takes bullets, and falls from buildings to discover the truth And with the help of Alfred, ex mercenary, he ll find it.


  • So the Earth One series is picking up the mantle of the old school What if series in the DC universe Here we have a re imagined and updated origin story for Batman set in an entirely different continuity Is it plausible Yes Is it good Not really I like Geoff Johns a lot and he definitely can write It s just incredibly difficult when you mess with the staples of a beloved franchise and try to make them different Example In Earth One, Alfred is not the humble Wayne family butler He s a veteran hir [...]


  • Why Why does everyone have to try a hand at re writing Bob Kane s character Well that rant apart is book is decent It is not half as bad as you think it will turn out to be once you ve started The characters are very gaudy very b grade cinema Interesting twists on Gordon s character the one i loved the best but overall very forgettable While I am at it s this is one of the better earth ones when compared to the Superman stuff but that said this one suffers because it competes in an areas where t [...]


  • Before being a legend, a vigilante and even a billionaire, batman is a human and like all other humans doing stunts, he gets hurt Batman has always been shown as a superhero, someone who is indestructible but this volume puts Batman much closer to reality A hero in the making for sure, but a hero who gets beaten, gets hurt, whose gadgets not always work and who at times don t make successful jumps across buildings It is a very fresh take on the origin of Batman, his parent s murder and his relat [...]


  • A very interesting story by an excellent writer Geoff Johns I ve had the pleasure of reading some of Johns other work in a variety of his comics and he has joined a short list of modern writers whose comics have always been top level The art of this series is beautiful The story is one we are mostly familiar with It s the origin of Batman but with a different take on it hence the Earth One designation There are many things that people familiar with the Batman legend will find, but there are subt [...]


  • I was highly reluctant to pick this up, partly because it seemed like DC was trying to make Year One obsolete by remaking Batman s origin story, and also because chances are, everyone who will pick this up knows Batman s origin already Why continue to shove it down our throats and Well, I was actually quite surprised, because this book does a damn good job of revitalizing the Dark Knight legend.What really caught me off guard about this was how dark and twisted the story goes I ve always seen [...]


  • I really wanted to like this than I did I think both of the Superman Earth One titles were very well done, and if anything served as a template for the Man of Steel movie which I think I m in the minority opinion I like the movie Here Johns goes to his familiar writing well, that of going to the work of those who came before him.But, instead of going to classic Batman writers such as O Neil, Moench, Miller, etc Johns goes to the Christopher Nolan.David Goyer Batman The result is a dull Bruce Wa [...]


  • OK this is an AWESOME book Geoff Johns strikes gold once again I really enjoyed the Superman Earth One story, but this one was gold Alfred re imagined as a badass mofo Bruce as a spoiled rotten kid Harvey Bullock as the Gold standard supercop Lucius Fox getting some much needed love There s so much to enjoy here First watching one of Bruce s homemade gadgets malfunction and how badly it ends up hurting him you NEVER see that But it makes great sense Also, the decision to have a costume that show [...]


  • Seems like Batman s origin story has be retold countless times Is there really any room for yet another Johns and Frank put forth a good argument in a brisk, exciting new take on Bats Surprisingly good.


  • Batman Earth one is the retelling of an iconic origin with a new twist With the earth one series from dc comics there is a lot of wiggle room to explore Again another collaboration by Geoff Johns and Gary Franks means another hit Geoff Johns creates a fresh take on batman origin the way only he can An amazing cover and signed by the writer and artist starts this book off in the right direction In the beginning we are shown an inexperienced batman who does a lousy job at capturing his pray The ki [...]


  • And odd, dark, yet interesting take on the origins of the Batman Enjoyable enough, but not one I would reread Though the parallels with the new show Gotham are a bit uncanny Was this used as somewhat of a basis


  • I really did like this beginning and how it set the path for Bruce and Alfred s bond That lighter was priceless You can finish this in one sitting if you re any type of fan of Batman.



  • People have often said that DC don t take enough risks with their characters Particularly with their staple two, Batman and Superman, that they are over protective of their personalities, relationships and settings That every revelation is often met with a conservative re tread I for one think this an over generalisation The new 52 has alone proved that much And Batman Earth One continues to push the boundaries of DC storytelling of its staple characters to a new zenith The tale that Johns and F [...]
