    4.5 starsExecuted to near-perfection, Year One recalls Barbara 'Babs' Gordon's tumultuous and never-boring debut year while wearing the cape & cowl. It's stylishly illustrated with bright, popping col...

    We all have our origin stories, even us regular people. The tales we tell people when we are getting to know them in order to explain why we are the way that we are: I won the Spelling Bee in eighth g...
