I'm not sure your wife is going to like it when Jim Gordon cheats on his spose though.

I love Year One. 

I am actually forcing my wife to read it as we speak. I told her it’s worth her time. 

Here are my two copies. I am so anxious for Graphitti Designs to release their artist edition of it.

pretty gruesome cover when you stop and look at it.

p.s.   late 1980's were an interesting time to be collecting comic books.  There was a lot of buzz in the market when that Batman movie with Michael Keaton, Kim Basinger and Jack Nicholson came out.    That, plus the first "Dark Knight", Batman: Year One, and relaunch of titles like Superman and Justice League made collecting and reading very fun for me.  I remember thinking something like this about "The Dark Knight":  "This looks like dooky but I can't stop reading and I'm fascinated".

For some reason, the early to mid-80's Batman - or basically pre-Crisis - feels more bronze than copper for me.

Copper keys for me would be: DKR, Year One, Killing Joke, Death of Jason Todd, Introduction of Tim Drake, Breaking of Batman's back, Azrael Batman.
