We Need To Talk About This Incredibly Underrated Comic

Hey guys! I'm in a great mood today because I saw War for the Planet of the Apes last night and it's my favorite movie of all time. Seeing it again tonight too. I digress. So, I am doing Chapter Three of The Diary of Bruce Wayne and in my research I came across another gem that I wanted to share. 

So back in the day, DC had a title called Secret Origins. When they decided to collect a trade paperback of them in 1989, they threw in a Batman story in there. It was excellent. 

It is called "The Man Who Falls", written by Denny O"Neil and drawn by Dick Giordano (one of many legendary inkers that can hack it just as good with the pencil).  Unfortunately, the main flaw with this story is that it's the standard issue length (around 24 pages), so there is not much to review. The writing was poetic, capturing perfectly the fire inside of Batman that drives him over his obstacles. O'Neil proves that he gets the character to a legendary (Finger, Miller) degree. 

Even though Batman's Origins have been covered what seems like 2000 times, there is an emphasis here on the training Batman went through that is not discussed in detail often. Christopher Nolan's Batman movies owe a lot to this story. I do too, it was an excellent resource to have. 

Giordano's art looks like that of his frequent collaborator Neal Adams mixed with some Norm Breyfogle. In other words, it's pretty good stuff.

Now go check it out!

BOBBY
Bobby Chrisafis is an aspiring Comic Artist and Writer who idolizes Batman and has always cited Frank Miller as his favorite Writer and Artist since the first time he laid down The Dark Knight Returns and realized his calling. He was euphorically happy when he finally met his hero, Mr. Miller (see profile picture). Outside of comics, he is an avid fan of the New York Yankees and Oakland Raiders. He also loves Punk Rock and listening to it way too loud.
