As my OCD wouldn't let me skip this, I ended up buying it, even though I knew it was a 'collection' of tales rather than one arc.

The art is still strong overall, but the stories themselves are a very mixed bag.

I honestly think you could miss this vol

My second Batbook of the day, and the second in this wonderful series.

Away from all the hoopla of the Scott Snyder Zero Hour storylines, which I do enjoy, this book treads much of the same ground and re-uses familiar characters in new ways.

Volume 5 of the 'definitive origin' story.

No huge surprises here as Mr Snyder and Mr Capullo are very comfortable in Gotham by now.

“The farther you go...the harder it is to return. The world has many edges and it's easy to fall off.”
Anderson Cooper, Dispatches from the Edge: A Memoir of War, Disasters, and Survival

Mark Billingham
“He was a big man; fifty or so, with greased-back grey hair and an expression that looked as if it had been kicked into position.”
Mark Billingham, In The Dark

“There is nobility in the struggle, you don't have to win.”
Sharon Pollock

Mark  Lawrence
“No half measures. Some things can’t be cut in half. You can’t half-love someone. You can’t half-betray, or half-lie.”
Mark Lawrence, Emperor of Thorns

Bernard Cornwell
“The first sound was the bowstrings, the snap of five thousand hemp cords being tightened by stressed yew, and that sound was like the devil’s harpstrings being plucked. Then there was the arrow sound, the sigh of air over feathers, but multiplied, so that it was like the rushing of a wind. That sound diminished as two clouds of arrows, thick as any flock of starlings, climbed into the gray sky. Hook, reaching for another broadhead, marveled at the sight of five thousand arrows in two sky-shadowing groups. The two storms seemed to hover for a heart’s beat at the height of their trajectory, and then the missiles fell. It was Saint Crispin’s Day in Picardy. For an instant there was silence. Then the arrows struck. It was the sound of steel on steel. A clatter, like Satan’s hailstorm.”
Bernard Cornwell, Azincourt
