This is the first Batman comic I’ve read and I really enjoyed it.
The graphics looked older, so it looks like a classic Batman comic. This is great for such an iconic character, like Batman.
I liked the way the story arc was completed through the whole graphic novel. It was a great mystery that left a cliffhanger at the end of each issue. This made me want to keep reading.
Though I know of the Batman characters, I’ve never read a Batman comic before, but I really enjoyed this one. I didn’t feel like I was missing out on anything. This is a great graphic novel!
