This is quite possibly the most fascinating re-envisioning of Batman's story line that I ever encountered. The artwork melds traditional Batman motifs with more modern accents and dark tones.
Jeff Loeb and Tim Sale, the dynamic duo of the graphic novels!
The World's Greatest Detective tries, and fails. And he loses worse than he could've imagined. This is a semi-sequel to Batman: Year One (as Jeph Loeb alludes to in the introduction), and it's fast-paced, gripping, and, in the end, heartbreaking. The people closest to Batman are always the ones that get hurt, and LH is no exception. Holes are filled in, and a plethora of new questions form. There really aren't enough good things for me to say about this story, so I'm going to stop now.
Loeb and Sale bring Batman back to his detective roots. This story is complex and intricate enough that it can be enjoyed by anyone takes pleasure in a great mystery story. Featuring exceptional art, story, and characterization this is a must for any comic book fan and anyone who enjoys a great storyline.
