Not as good as "Under the Red Hood", but certainly not bad either. I'm kind of indifferent on this one. It clearly continues the darker, more mature look and feel of the Batman series, but it was disjointed and boring at the same time. The story is pretty bare bones and doesn't really show how Bruce Wayne became the masked crusader. It's more about how Jim Gordon got his start, which really isn't that interesting. There's a reason he wasn't the main character originally. The animation also isn't nearly as good as "Under the Red Hood" or the voice acting. Year One clearly has its fans and it is something different for the long-running series, but I'm not among those that enjoyed it.
