Batman: Year One Trailer!

Thanks to MTV and Ain’t It Cool News for posting this very nice looking trailer for the classic Batman: Year One animated film adaptation.

In 1987 DC Comics published this epic tale, issues #404 to #407, showing readers the early days of Bruce as he begins to stalk the streets of Gotham City as Batman and his working relationship with James Gordon. The Batman films by Christopher Nolan have used certain characters and events from Year One.

Batman: Year One was written by Frank Miller (Daredevil, The Dark Knight Returns, Sin City) and illustrated masterfully by David Mazzucchelli (Daredevil, Rubber Blanket, Asterios Polyp), it was added to IGN’s list of Top 25 greatest Batman stories stating that, “It’s not only one of the most important comics ever written, it’s also among the best.”
