by  in Comic News Comment

Here is the latest cool comic book moment in our year-long look at one cool comic book moment a day (in no particular order whatsoever)! Here‘s the archive of the moments posted so far!

We continue our look at Batman: Year One moments!!

I think after today I’ll do just two more moments. So you folks should write in to bcronin@comicbookresources.com with your suggestions for which two moments I should do for the last two days of Year One moments!

Okay, so in Batman #404 (by writer Frank Miller and artist David Mazzucchelli), Bruce Wayne has finally decided to fight crime after training for it his whole adult life. The thing is, his initial disguise (normal clothes just with a big scar to disguise himself) has not been exactly met with much in the way of fear or respect, and on his first night out he is waylaid by some of Gotham’s finest citizens (while he’s trying to help them) and then shot by a Gotham cop.

What happens next is, as they say, history…








As for “the” moment – come on, I shall become a bat!!!
