  1. Yeah. Screw this release. DC, you should know better.

    • Jup. Saw the article with mazzucchellli and canceled my pre-order right away. A shame, I really wanted a deluxe version of Batman Year One, as it should be.

  2. My old first printing trade paperback of this is still holding up well, but I’d love to have a sturdier version.

    It’s not going to be this one, though.

  3. I got the HC that was released 6-7 years ago. Still looks great and has held up well…..despite having a silly jacket cover that was has a poorly designed cut in half thing going on.

    For those looking for a great HC version of this book, get the same one I got. You can still find lots at some fair prices.
