"This may be the scariest book I've ever read. People say that "1984 was a warning, not an instruction manual." Anyone who thinks that's where the US is heading has NO idea about what horrors that truly indicates. To say that the US is in a state of "1984" is to downplay the horrors of what people in the actual, real life dystopia that is North Korea go through. Everyone should read this book."

Batman is not a hero. He's trying to be one. And failing.

This is, in short, a(nother) reimagining of the Batman origin story. In this one, Batman is consumed with finding his parents' killer, and uncover the conspiracy responsible. In the process, h

In short, this book is what shaped the Batman we know today.

It's hard to make a superhero story more realistic without further emphasizing the ridiculous core upon which the idea is built. In short, that's pretty much what happens here. In truth, th
