i actually borrowed this from the library believe it or not. anyways, great story and great art. the art really compliments the story very well; it has sort of a realisitic look as opposed to art you see in typical comics today. i have a few questions though: 1) i kind of got the feeling that gordon knew bruce was batman at the end. was that frank miller's intention or did i read this wrong? 2) gordon had a son. where is he now? is he in the batman continuity at all? 3) gordon gave essen a bracelet. was it supposed to be a way of gordon saying, "sorry, i can't see you anymore"? thanks.
