Summary, etc.:
"A ruthless new gang of criminals known only as Nightwalkers is terrorizing Gotham, and the city's elite are being taken out one by one. On the way home from his 18th birthday party, newly minted billionaire Bruce Wayne makes an impulsive choice that puts him in their crosshairs and lands him in Arkham Asylum, the once-infamous mental hospital. There, he meets Madeleine Wallace, a brilliant killer...and Bruce's only hope. Madeleine is the mystery Bruce must unravel, but is he convincing her to divulge her secrets, or is he feeding her the information she needs to bring Gotham City to its knees?"-- Provided by publisher.
Reviews

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2019 October #2
    For more than six decades, Batman's youth remained untrammeled narrative territory. Now, it's an industry unto itself as superhero publishers challenge the very concept of market saturation with products like this graphic novel adaptation of a novel that adapts a mythology drawn from comics, TV, and movies. Batman is particularly ripe for coming-of-age tales, given his early trauma and his brooding appeal. Here, 18-year-old Bruce Wayne, on the verge of inheriting his parents' vast empire, fumbles an early attempt at crime-fighting and ends up with community service in the dreaded Arkham Asylum. There, he makes a connection with Madeline, the leader of an anarchist gang targeting Gotham's rich and powerful. Like Bruce, she's hiding many secrets and plans, and Lu and adapter Moore hit some enjoyable notes finding parallels between them as they match wits and traumas, simultaneously poking some relevant questions about privilege. Already own the novel? The striking black-and-white art creates a rich noir tone, while bursts of yellow create a crisp counterpoint that cleverly suggests the hues of an imminent costume.
