One of the most important and critically acclaimed graphic novels of all time is now presented in a deluxe hardcover edition, including many of the extras and bonus materials from ABSOLUTE BATMAN: YEAR ONE. In 1986, Frank Miller and David Mazzucchelli produced this groundbreaking reinterpretation of the origin of Batman--who he is and how he came to be. Written shortly after THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS, Miller's dystopian fable of Batman's final days, YEAR ONE set the stage for a new vision of a legendary character. This new edition includes artist David Mazzucchelli's original pencil pages, sketches and script pages from Frank Miller, along with other bonus materials. Collects BATMAN #404-407.
