Re: Batman: Earth One
his "Earth One" serie is for those who don't wish to follow monthlies and want a modern take on Bruce Wayne Batman. It's pretty much for Nolan fans and other modern Batman fans who don't wish to get into the 70 years of Batman but want a fresh bold start.
I both agree and disagree with this... I don't follow monthlies, Never Really have, yet I have delved into Batman's 70 year history extensively. I may be a rare case because I have been reading Bat books for almost 10 years and I still like Nolan's films & AM VERY ANXIOUS TO PICK THIS UP!
This book is not necessarily for newbs like you imply!
Jerry and Joe were gentlemen. Bob Kane was a thief and a glory-hound who was more concerned about profit and prestige. I cannot bring myself to believe the same things about Stan Lee in regards to his two main contributors, Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko. I'm inclined to believe Stan's version of events as he has usually been very willing to credit his co-conspirators, but the truth is because different versions of credit exists, we will never truly know.
