The early days of the Dark Knight as envisioned by the legendary Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo!

Gotham City has been destroyed in a devastating flood, and from the chaos and carnage a new leader has emerged: The Riddler! Now it is up to Batman to save the city, and the first step is clawing himself out of the jaws of death itself! In this bold reimagining of Batman’s earliest days as a superhero, all-star creative team Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo weave an epic story of both mystery and mayhem that has long since become a foundational text in Batman mythology! This hardcover Absolute edition includes every issue of the Zero Year story, as well as the Director’s Cut issue.
Collects Batman #0, #21-27, #29-33, and Batman: Zero Year Director’s Cut #1.
