"Another Batman origin, but unlike any before"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This novel is a fantastic read for any and all Batman Fans. While the Caped Crusader' s origin is nothing new, this is set in a totally different world. Taking characters we know and love, and changing them just enough to keep you guessing. It's Batman set in a realistic world. It feels like it could be any city in the world if things got just s little out of hand, and one man is willing to step up to defend s tragedy in his own life. Fantastic.
