    Who caught the tiny reference to The Joker in this issue? The leader of the Red Hood gang made a reference that had to be about the Joker. Overall this was a great issue. I wasn't a big fan about the whole hologram thing being used in conjunction with the "I will become a bat" scene but it was still mighty effective. The stuff with the Riddler was also very excellent. The artwork was just gorgeous as well. This is such a great book, and one of the few DC titles I'm still reading on my quickly dwindling DC Comics pull list. Perfect writing and fantastic art - another great instalment.

    My only real complaint is the cover price. $7. That is way too much. I get that this was a double-sized issue but still that price is too high and DC should really reconsider that price point in the future. If the storyline wasn't so good I would've skipped this comic.

    The comic itself was really fantastic. A great first outing for Batman and it looks like the leader of the Red Hood was probably the Joker but I like how it's left open to interpretation. The leader of the Red Hood definitely knows who Batman is and I like how that kind of plays with that scene from "A Death in the Family" when Bruce confronted Joker in his jail cell during a flashback. A really great Batman comic book and the comic to read if you can only choose one Bat-title.

    Throughly enjoyable issue. I especially liked the nod to Detective Comics #27 splash page. They even kept Kane's purple gloves. I actually like the retro suit more than the new 52 costume.

    I did wonder if Red Hood 1 will actually become The Joker or not, but as Spider-Man said, it is open to interpretation.

    As a irrelevant side note, Alfred is from York, where I was born. Cool beans.

    Yes he is, he is from York, not New York. His dialogue is not very Yorkshire however, but still... Pretty cool all the same.

    Is that supposed to be Jason Woodrue, that big skeletal guy turning people into these twisted bone trees? The cameo by Pamela Isley seems to lend to that. Otherwise this is another really great issue of Batman. This flashback storlyine has been really enjoyable so far.

    Fantastic issue. This "Zero Year" arc has been nearly flawless from the get-go. I like that Snyder is setting up Gordon of having secrets of his own. Obviously he's not crooked like Bruce Wayne thinks. I'm sure he's working on some type of plan to uncover some of the police corruption in Gotham but I like the dynamic it sets up between Gordon and Bruce early in his career. It's a neat twist. I was disappointed there was no back-up story even though the price tag stayed at $3.99.

    I loved that we got more scenes with Gordon and Alfred. Both of them got these great long speeches that I thought really hit the characters really well. Gordon's flashback explanation was really satisfying, and I love how tense things remain between Bruce and Alfred. And the big reveal at the end when Batman discovered the bigger threat is awesome. Not the best issue of the arc but a nice breather. Really great stuff.

    Spoiler! How cool is it to see Stephanie Brown again! And Selina Kyle the new kingpin of the underworld? And Bluebird? Snyder was right when he said this issue would really deliver a lot of surprises. It was a real page-turner. It was a very quick read but the artwork was gorgeous and the story was genuinely interesting. I can't wait to see how all of this plays out when the Batman Eternal book starts up and Batman returns to the present. Easily DC's best superhero book right now.

    Did anyone else get a laugh out of that "the gd [censored] Batman" line? A hilarious reference to All-Star Batman and Robin. In fact this issue was full of nods to Frank Miller but thankfully they were all handled nicely (and actually better than anything Miller has actually done in ages). The art was amazing. Snyder really let Capullo really carry the issue and it was a beautiful issue.I'm glad we got to learn a bit of Ruddler since his whole "I'm going to destroy the city" thing felt like it came out of nowhere. I should've known Snyder had a plan for it. The back and forth between Gotham's destruction and the murder of the Waynes was nicely handled at the end.

    Amazing issue. I just have to give it to the art team here. This is honestly some of the best comic book art I have seen in a long time, I am very glad Capullo and Snyder get to do this origin story for the new 52.

    Totally agree, Dragonpiece. This was probably the best issue of the Zero Year arc so far. The artwork was amazing, the story was great, and I can't help but wonder how Gotham is going to pull itself out of this. This title was been consistently great since the first issue and I'm glad it's DC's top title as it really deserves it. I wonder how Batman is going to eventually stump Riddler with that answer-less riddle thing.
