The first image of Batman in the Zero Year storyline was intriguing. It showed the hero astride a steam-powered motorcycle, wearing ripped para-military attire, and armed with a lasso and a crossbow, as seen on the front cover of this hardback book. This tantalising image was a flash-forward. Now, over half a year later, it was about to be explained. The story so far Gotham City had a new hero. Inspired by the bats that haunted the network of caves beneath his family mansion, Bruce Wayne had created a new identity – the Batman. With the Red Hood Gang’s crime wave seemingly at an end, Batman has to face the dual threat of Doctor Death and the Riddler. Aided by allies Jim Gordon and Lucius Fox, Batman faces a desperate battle to take back control of Gotham City power supply and stop the catacombs from being flooded. But will the memories that haunt Bruce Wayne help or hinder his vital mission? Batman #27 + 29-33

    And so on to the second part of the story and I have to say things have gone from bad to worse. Now like so many stories of the Batman - you can never be sure what parts influenced others as this certainly has aspects it that feel familiar both to other comics and graphic novels but also to films that have recently come out. That said this book does not feel detracted from such similarities rather it weaves them in to a story that is both compelling and unpredictable. So in short a great read an And so on to the second part of the story and I have to say things have gone from bad to worse.

That said this book does not feel detracted from such similarities rather it weaves them in to a story that is both compelling and unpredictable. So in short a great read and some interesting takes on some familiar characters - the question is and yes I think some more research is called for - is to see if scott carries on this brave new world (or at least Gotham) or if this was a creation made specifically for this story. I suspect there maybe a few more Legend of Batman books in my future

    I'll be honest: I only picked this up to complete the story told in Zero Year: Part 1. With that issue the first in a planned new series/re-issue of hard-backed Batman stories, and with each issue costing something over £10, I doubt I'll pick up all 100 such issues, but may pickup the occassional one as the whim takes me. As the second issue in that planned series, the price of this was creeping up higher to, but not yet quite at, the full cost.

Following on from Zero Year: Part 1, this is set during the early days of Bruce Wayne/Batman's return to Gotham city, and features the lesser-known(?) villain The Riddler as the main antagonist of the tale, instead of (say) The Joker or Penguin. That, the intro to this states, was a conscious decision, with The Joker having recently starred in The Death of the Family story-line. With the Riddler, a different kind of story is required: unlike the chaos-loving Joker, or the (usually portrayed as) gangster Penguin, The Riddler is simply out to prove that he is smaret than everyone else: a case of Brain over Brawn, as it were. Such is the background behind how he manages to cripple Gotham City, cutting it off from the rest of the country, and declaring it to be his new Zero Year ...

    So part two was amazing, maybe not as heart-wrenching as the first part but for sure worth a five-star rating to me. I am so excited about these new Snyder books, cannot wait for the third one. Why did I love this edition so much though??? The last three pages, where Alfred envisions an alternate life for Bruce, just broke my heart. The Riddler as a villain is my favorite of all the Batman villains because Eddie is an egotistical twat honestly and there's just something so funny to me about that, So part two was amazing, maybe not as heart-wrenching as the first part but for sure worth a five-star rating to me. I am so excited about these new Snyder books, cannot wait for the third one. Why did I love this edition so much though??? The last three pages, where Alfred envisions an alternate life for Bruce, just broke my heart. The Riddler as a villain is my favorite of all the Batman villains because Eddie is an egotistical twat honestly and there's just something so funny to me about that, especially his relationship with Selina (cannot wait until that is introduced in these books) and he was who this whole collection was about. It was so scary to me he got so far, far out, he's meant to be kinda incompetent but oh no, not incompetent not at all. Glad he got his arse kicked. And mostly through this whole story, I was picturing playing (being in) the Arkham game series solving Riddler's riddles and saving the world of Gotham and I just loved it. I'm a dreamer, wholeheartedly and these books enriched that whole thing. I can see myself giving these books high ratings right through but I'm not super critical and don't claim to be any sort of comic genius but part two, it was moving, it drew a tear, I laughed, so five star from me. I'd rather just enjoy a thing you know?

    13/100 (2018 Reading Challenge) Thoroughly enjoyed the second part of the legend of Batman, though not as initially gripping as part one. I started off thinking was going to be far less sucked in than ended being by end of GN) Still some great Batman goodness, loving the art work still. & the writing still manages to pull me into the story. Looking forward to more volumes in the Legend of Batman. Expanding my number of Batman stories read, though sure will be some duplicates.

Happy to read again, nice hardcover edition & would be cool if can collect them all. Ticks a lot of my boxes, Batman , hardcover, collectibles. & goes well with my resolutions to read far more comics/gn’s/manga (well more in general across all fiction and non fiction books, just more reading really lol)

The narrative kept you engaged, there was a great character arc for Bruce, and I'm not ashamed to admit that I almost shed a tear at one point. Give me more Snyder and Capullo!

    3 out of 5 stars. This book was okay. I wouldn't say it's anything special, especially when it comes to Batman, but it was a lot darker than I was expecting it to be. Mostly because the main villain of this one was the Riddler. I don't know. Maybe I don't know enough about the character to make a proper judgement, but he's always seemed more of a comical villain to me. I guess I'm just blinded by Jim Carrey's version of him. Eh. Either way, this book was a pretty quick read and I wish Eaglemoss woul 3 out of 5 stars. This book was okay.

Hell, I wish they'd just send the bastards out in Volume order because I'm starting to get pretty freaking bored of waiting.

    I think it is actually even better than part 1. The setting and the villain especially are way cooler. 4.5 stars!

    A surprisingly enjoyable origin story, even with the riddler as the main villain of the story.
