Batman Begins | Dennis O'Neill

As some of you have learned about me, I am a “little“ obsessed with Batman...😂, I know, more like a little, overly, obsessed with Batman.

And this remains my absolute favorite story about my favorite superhero.

The first “reread“ of a book without a single, pretty illustration 🤔, and I loved just the same as I had the first time reading this book. 👇

AnnCrystal Some of this feels “reported,“ yet it seemed to fit the flow of the story.

An origin story that perfectly wraps the beginnings of Bruce Wayne's character and his making of Batman.

Wish I had kept a book journal when I was younger...read how my younger self felt about some of my gold star reads. I've only devotedly began one since becoming a Litten 😉👍.

This one keeps all of the Gold 🤩 Stars I originally gave. Excellent!

TieDyeDude I'm surprised superhero prose novels aren't more of a thing. When I was younger, I remember reading the novelization of No Man's Land and I really enjoying The Stone King JLA novel. 2d
AnnCrystal 👏☺️👍.@TieDyeDude I always wondered the same thing. Seems strange when it could be an interesting way to intrigue young readers into reading more complex stories...📚😉👍. 2d

Bruce Wayne: “I thought I could help Gotham, but I've failed.“

Alfred Pennyworth: “And why do we fall, sir? So that we might better learn to pick ourselves up.“

The spontaneous marathon is complete! Just got a good momentum, and realized I really wanted to know how everything ended. The answer is: the only way it could. After everything that's happened, all the loss and mistakes, tying off some loose ends means acknowledging things won't ever be the way they were. 1/?

Robotswithpersonality 2/? Redemption and reconciliation are very much still question marks for a number of characters but the idea that peace, getting people to the table to talk is hard thing, really resonates right now, maybe its one of those perennial truths that we keep having to learn the painful way. 2w
Robotswithpersonality 3/3 Blue Beetle and Booster; Harley with her olive branch (tree); the moment with Bruce and Clark; Lobo's Lantern 'creations'; there were a number of memorable highlights in this final volume. But boy oh boy am I glad it's not the main continuity! I think it's time for a cheerful Superman comic. 😅 2w

Wow, that went by really fast. Definitely has its share of dark moments, seemed to be almost entirely fight scenes and planning to fight scenes. Highlights were Hal Jordan's hallucinated 'Jiminy Cricket', and Javelin joy ride complete with alarm saga. ⚠️Animal death

“Starro the Conqueror.“
You named the evil galaxy-eating space star fish STARRO? You felt it necessary to CREATE an evil galaxy-eating space star fish? I- you know what, why not?!🤷🏼‍♂️

Eeeee! I love 💕 where this volume ended, kind of feels like one nemesis down, one to go, but that's really last on my list of reasons why I love it. Everybody helping out, and the relationship confirmation- the hand placement?! 👀. Just squeeing with joy over here, which is exactly what I want from this series. ☺️

Babs + Bitewing + Grayson = Best. Team. Ever.

A few classic storylines from O'Neil and Adams featuring Ra's Al Ghul. A mixed bag, but a solid collection.

I needed that. This series continues to have a lightness and sincerity I wish I saw in more modern superhero stories.
The emphasis in this volume on the importance of support groups, that there are people you can rely on who are happy to help you, was particularly touching. 1/2

Robotswithpersonality 2/2 We get to see more Bitewing, more Babs, more 'hot super powered people are allowed to be goofy and vulnerable', more breathlessly competent fight scenes.
Perfection.
One plot arc is wrapped up and another is started in a way that feels satisfying rather than frustrating. On to the next!
Side note: If you've read the extant Superman: Son of Kal-El volumes, part of this volume will be a repeat (it's not deja vu! 😅).

Have I mentioned lately how much I love this series? I also love that DC and the fandom have all just collectively gotten together on the idea that everyone acknowledges Dick Grayson/Nightwing is a babe. 😉
