The year 2009 was the year that I bought my first graphic novel - and this was the last I read last year.

Unfortunately, it meant I left the year on a bit of a downer.

I’m not sure exactly what it was that meant I didn’t enjoy this as much as the others, there as just something that didn’t quite catch my attention.  It’s not particularly bad, it’s just not particularly good either!  In my opinion obviously…

Reading other reviews from people on Amazon, it would seem that I’m in the minority on this as several claim that this book has single-handedly reinvented the genre, the Batman story in particular. Maybe I should try reading it again!

No doubt I’ll give another couple of graphic novels a try on 2010!
