read Batman Volume 4 Zero Year – Secret City characters È eBook or Kindle ePUB ☆ Scott Snyder Scott Snyder ☆ 3 review The New 52 origin of The Dark Knight delves into Bruce Wayne’s past with the Red Hood Gang. This one made me waffleIs it 4 stars or 5 starsIt didn t uite punch me in the gut like Batman Vol 3 Death of the Family but I still loved itSo45 stars it isZero Year is the New 52 origin story for Batman and Snyder does not disappoint Gather round Nocenti DC writers cuz this is how it s doneThe idea behind it according to the afterword was to lean away from Miller s Batman Year One He praises Miller s work for changing the tone of the Dark Knight while explaining that his goal was to bring back a lighter version of Batman Not that this was done in a campy Adam West style but this New Batman took a few baby steps back from Miller s older darker and uite a bit grim incarnationMy personal opinion The pendulum needed to swing back At some point Miller must have taken a long ride on the Crazy Train Because when he finally decided to get off he subjected readers to All Star Batman and Robin the Boy Wonder Vol 1Dark and GrittyThat s one way to put itMassive Steaming Pile of Warm Gooey ShitThat would be anotherLet s all say a prayer that Snyder remains in charge of Batman for a little while longer m kayIt s a bit early to call it but I m betting Zero Year is eventually going to be reuired reading for BatfansAnd I also think Snyder s name is going to become synonymous with Batman in the same way Brubaker s is with Captain AmericaOr Geoff Johns with Green Lantern That s right I said it Johns brought Hal back from the dead in ways than one So PbhhhtSesana mentioned this in her review but since I think it s a high point in the story I can t help pointing it out tooRed HoodNot Jason Todd The original guyThe one who wore what looked like a red test tube on his nogginYeahIf you ve been reading this stuff for years you re going to see the twist coming from a mile away but I think you ll like it anywayAnd newer readers who aren t familiar with the way this character has been played with in the past are going to get the surprise of their livesGood stuffNo uestion about it this is another Must Read

read Batman Volume 4 Zero Year – Secret City characters È eBook or Kindle ePUB ☆ Scott Snyder Scott Snyder ☆ 3 review Ment that Bruce becomes Batman Collecting Batman #21 24 Batman Zero Year The Director's Cut. 12This year I wanted to jump back into reading about some of the superheroes that I loved when I was a kid one of my favorites being Batman Cause he s awesome At first I was totally confused with where to jump in again because there are so many damn comics But after some research I ultimately decided on reading the books from DC s New 52 relaunch as well as their recent relaunch Rebirth And the New 52 books had a well received origin story arc so I decided to start there Why not rightMost people with even a very pedestrian understanding of the Batman character from the comics shows or movies are familiar with the origin of Batman and it s been revisited many times over Frank Miller s great Batman Year One is considered the definitive classic book on his origin But here I like the fact that Scott Snyder decided play with it a bit not rehash Bruce s family s murder and start at the point when Bruce is back from his experiences learning overseas and is already awkwardly trying his hand at vigilantism in Gotham fighting the Red Hood Gang He hasn t yet become Batman And I like that unlike Miller Snyder barely focuses attention on Jim Gordon which made Miller s Year One book less of a Batman origin to meI love Snyder s idea of showing Bruce using a variety of human costume masks while first trying to fight crime I thought that was a cool visual idea and a believable disguise before Bruce decides that he needs something effective And while I do prefer my Batman stories dark and brooding I appreciated that the book tried something else and went in a different route with the artwork leaning towards a colorful look that seemed closer to the animated shows and animated movies And there are some really snazzy short extra tales at the end that provide some greater insight into what Bruce was doing in his world travels that led to his skills as Batman I really wish that Snyder focused a bit on that fascinating stuff Maybe in a future arcSnyder took his cue from a variety of other iterations of Batman stories like Batman The Killing Joke in his depiction of the Red Hood Gang and the fact that the man that would become the Joker was under the mask at some point But I loved the fact that he made it even interesting by making it ambiguous Snyder combines standard ideas from early stories and puts his own stamp on Batman s first time in Gotham

read Batman Volume 4 Zero Year – Secret City characters È eBook or Kindle ePUB ☆ Scott Snyder Scott Snyder ☆ 3 review And his run ins with aspiring District Attorney Harvey Dent You won’t want to miss the mo. Origin stories are hard they re even harder when you re redoing the origin story for a character whose origin has been tackled numerous times and in the form of stories considered landmark classics of the genre Granted they re not as hard as say gracefully and uietly sans slurping eating a slice of watermelon but they re pretty tough So how do you evaluate yet another Batman origin story It might be endearing to watch some heroes stumble and bumble around as they learn on the job see below for an insanely nerdy recounting of a not so epic session of the old Marvel Superheroes Roleplaying Game a recounting that I m pretty sure only Paul will appreciate but you don t really want to see Bats getting hit in the back of the head because he fails to catch his own batarang I mean it s Batman The guy s a no nonsense competence machine Comedic stumbles undermine the core of his character so that means that of necessity you need to keep it serious which heretofore has been synonymous with grim and gritty not unlike the way my dating style was once characterized Snyder goes for a slightly different take here lighter in tone than its predecessors but not in a pratfalls and funny shots in the giggleberries kind of way rather it s Batman s lack of a support network and the lack of awareness that he needs one that underscores his inexperience I ve been reading a ton of Batman lately for reasons unknown it s entirely possible I was bitten by a bat andor Michael Keaton and the thing I keep noticing is that the books aren t so much about Batman as they are about the Bat family Alfred Batgirl the many young men Bruce Wayne has taken in under uestionable circumstances and clad in fancy boots and exceedingly tight leotards etc It makes for an interesting story but not an epic must read addition to the canon Now then you want an origin story Here s what you do you set a Marvel Super Heroes RPG campaign in scenic Kalamazoo Michigan You have your young heroes spend a good 20 minutes debating how to get to the scene of a crime in progress because if they drive their own car someone might take down their license plate number and figure who they are but arriving via bicycle doesn t seem particularly heroic I ll note that this campaign took place long before Uber which I suppose wouldn t have been ideal either as the driver would certainly have known our heroes identity You have them ultimately resolve this issue by parking relatively close to the scene of the crime on a side street a few blocks away running as fast as they can to get there arriving out of breath and ultimately missing out on catching the bad guys You have them accidentally blow up a building owned by the largest employer in the area a company several of their friends and family members work for And you have them mocked by mallrats in Portage a SUBURB OF KALAMAZOO outside the city limits of a small city even yes even Kalamazoo has suburbs Now THAT is an epic and awesome origin story right Bret

    Scott Snyder ☆ 3 review [PDF/EPUB] Batman Volume 4 Zero Year – Secret City BY Scott Snyder Let me start by saying I thought this was a good story Still do we really need another Batman origin story? Every time we turn around there is another take on the origin story I guess that just goes to show just how powerful that origin story is that every writer wants to put their own spin on it Red Hood is also rehashed here I actually thought this was better than the 1988 origin of Joker here It was less crazy in s
