This was a solid, enjoyable read that ended up being very different from what I expected, but it still held my attention well. It was appropriately broody for a pre-batman story, though young Bruce Wayne himself wasn’t too broody or angsty, at least, not for a teenager. It’s more like the whole overall story has that dark cloud hanging over it, and the antagonist is delightfully hostile.
It’s definitely a bit more psychological thriller than action story, though there are still action scenes. We also got to experience some high-tech gadgets, as is necessary for any Batman story.
