Batman Begins - Dennis O'Neill

Solidly done.

O'Neill again does not disappoint with a Batman story, as he follows the young Bruce Wayne in his wanderings and violent confrontation that leads him to the mysterious al Ghul and his training, and back to Gotham to become a legend.

Most of the time the author stays with Batman, but occasionally the viewpoing character is Gordon, Alfred, or Rachel, as far as that side of the law goes.

He conveys the tone rather well, and has a lot of fun with Lucius Fox, too.

Definitely worth reading.

3.5 out of 5
