    A good intro to Bruce/Batman for kids. You meet a lot of the standard players and rogues gallery, so if you have an older kid who?s looking to start on Batman stuff, this isn?t a bad place to begin. As someone whose favorite part of Batman is usually Alfred, and Bruce and Alfred?...

    Angsty teenage Batman graphic novel. About what you?d expect. I?ve never loved Batman/Bruce Wayne as a character so I liked this about as much as I could have expected but it was a quick, fluffy read for me. ...

    3.5 stars overall. This was a sweet story of Bruce Wayne's younger days. Kind of predictable, but also super heartwarming. I like stories that give Alfred his due, and also that show Bruce Wayne as the emotionally-dense-moron he can be. I enjoyed the story on its own, but I rea...

    3.5. I think it's a fun enough intro story for those not already familiar with Batman's beginnings, if a little simplistic. Felt like it would appeal more towards younger readers than tweens or teens. I liked seeing Bruce with actual friends and I always love to see him getti...

    This graphic novel recreates Bruce Wayne's backstory in a fun, exciting, and different way. People who are very invested in a particular image of Batman may not like this, since the author makes lots of creative choices that aren't in line with typically accepted canon, but I...

    Quite a different take on Batman's origin story. Yes, Bruce is still an orphaned billionaire being raised by his butler, but this time he's a teenager when he decides to become a vigilante, and he's rebelling against poor Alfred. Yes, this book is just as much about Bruc...

    Young Bruce Wayne is weeks away from getting his driver's license, and decides to repair his father's classic car, and maybe give it some upgrades, and maybe start calling it the Batmobile. Bruce is tracking a car theft ring, and hoping they will lead to clues about his paren...

    Everyone knows that Batman and Bruce Wayne are the same guy, but do you really know the Caped Crusader's story? This comic book delves into the Dark Knight's early years, showing how he went from rich orphan to vigilante, and the creation of the Batmobile. While some of this ...

    I like how this focused in on the Batmobile - this story gets told so many times and it was a fun twist, especially with the mechanical side of the story. I did notice a few errors and the story felt like it was written pretty young, but it was still enjoyable. ...

    "Batman: Overdrive" is the prequel story to the worldwide phenomenon known as our current Batman. "Overdrive" starts three weeks before Bruce Wayne's sixteenth birthday; his parents have been dead for the past eight years, but that doesn't mean it's a...

    Thank you to Netgalley for the opportunity to read and review this graphic novel. Over the years theree have been many attempts, both in print and the movies, to explain and describe the origins of Batman. This story actually revolves around the origins of the Batmobile and Bruce Wayne...

    Batman's origin gets mashed up with the Fast and Furious franchise and given a Disney channel spin, as a 15-year-old Bruce Wayne teams up with Mateo "Doc" Diaz and Selina "Cat" Kyle to restore his dead father's cool classic car and solve his parents' ...

    Thank you to NetGalley for a free review copy of this. This is a great introduction to the Batman lore if someone is unfamiliar with it. This would be a great jumping off point for kids to get started reading Batman if they've never read it before. I really liked the dynamic be...

    Batman gets a Fast & Furious makeover in this graphic novel for kids. Bruce Wayne is fixing up his dad's old car to turn into his Batmobile. He makes some friends along the way in Mateo and Selina Kyle. Of course, there's a car theft ring in town as well. The art's s...

    A good story, aimed a young readers, but nothing wrong with that. I do like the way Young Bruce Wayne is portrayed. He acts like a rich entitled teenage, because he us a rich entitled teenager. The authors got tte characters obsessive behaviour right and well as the teenage ego to ...

    Was not a huge fan of this book. It was kind of obvious that it was made for a younger audience, and don't get me wrong like it's good for a kid but I've read quite a few graphic novels directed at a younger audience and they were more enjoyable to read than this. It mig...

    A retelling of the Batman origin story. I love Alfred in this book, and the art is cute, but Bruce being a whiny, selfish brat in every iteration is getting annoying. He straight up puts people?s lives in danger from being self-absorbed in this book. Didn?t feel like the story did...

    An interesting read. A bit slow at the start but if you stick with it, it?s a very interesting what if style story. Leave all your pre conceptions about Batman behind and read this with a fresh mind. The art style is very engaging and nice. A good addition to any Batman & DC libr...
