This weeks sees the highly anticipated release of Batman: Earth One, an original graphic novel retelling the Batman legend in a contemporary setting. The collaboration between New York Times bestselling author Geoff Johns and critically acclaimed artist Gary Frank, Batman: Earth One also marks the first original graphic novel for Johns – who is best known for his work on fan favorite ongoing series for DC Comics. Together, Johns and Frank have put together some of our absolute favorite runs, from Action Comics to Superman: Secret Origin. And here they give Batman the same treatment that J. Michael Straczynski gave Superman in the Superman: Earth One HC, which came out several months ago and was very well received.
