Pretty well written and drawn the story itself seems kind of rushed though. The end just seemed to come rather abruptly and Catwoman's presence seemed rather pointless. Miller's take on Catwoman was interesting but she didn't really seem to have much to do with the story.

Also this really seems to be more about Gordon's story than it is about Batman's. Not that that is a bad thing, seeing things from Gordon's point of view is fairly interesting. I would have liked more Batman though.

I think overall I just wanted more to happen in the story, it just seemed like there were a lot of gaps and that characters and situations were introduced and not followed up on. That may be the point though, this is just Batman's first year. I guess the point was just to introduce things.

Despite those flaws I still really liked it and would recommend it to any Batman fan.
