I Am Batman Vol. 1
Bruce Wayne is dead. Lucius Fox and Foxtech own the technology developed by Wayne Industries. Jace Fox has a lot to prove to his father. He also needs to make a difference. He lives two lives. He wears a business suit in one and a mask in the other. His father depends on him, and his city needs him. He is the new Batman.
I Am Batman Vol. 1 is new from DC. It is written by award-winning author John Ridley and illustrated by an all-star team of artists, including Olivier Coipel, Stephen Segovia, and many more. Comic book heroes have always filled a need to combat the problems of the day. This new Batman is no exception. Ridley tackles issues from pollution to police brutality, and more important, the representation of people of color in comics. With Gotham representing NYC, it’s about time he had a Black Batman.
Continuing with the themes of more recent Batman adventures, the artwork is just as dark and exciting. The story is action-packed and very relevant. With a compelling narration and illustrations I Am Batman Vol. 1 is a fantastic graphic novel for new and old Batman collectors alike.
