Batman – Earth 1 is an ongoing graphic novel series that details the start of Batman’s crime fighting career.  As the title suggests, Earth 1 is one of the many alternate Earths that currently exists in the DC Comics universe, with Prime Earth as the one where the current canon story line of the New 52 takes place. With a fresh canvass to work with, the series is not burdened with all of Batman’s history and should appeal to new readers or anyone who just wants to read a straight forward adventure with the Dark Knight. What I like about this is how realistic Batman is. He’s not the seemingly invincible hero who wins every time. Since he’s just starting out, we get to see him make mistakes and learn from them.
