Batman: Nightwalker (DC Icons) (Hardcover)
Before he was crusading around Gotham as Batman, Bruce Wayne was just a young billionaire who wanted to help keep his city safe from the violence plaguing it. Unable to stay out of any injustices he sees, Bruce ends up serving community service in Arkham Asylum where he meets a mysterious young prisoner who is part of a murderous group responsible for a crime wave striking the elite of Gotham. With Bruce a potential next target, he finds himself drawn to her while determined to find and stop the other members still out there. Marie Lu does a great job of portraying a young Bruce Wayne while paying homage to the decades of Batman comic lore. Nightwalker is the perfect step in seeing Bruce start to become the caped vigilante he will be known as someday.— Miranda
