The Batman: Year One story was released back in 1987. Meaning that it’s just older than I am. It was written by the legendary comic book writer, Frank Miller and illustrated by David Mazzucchelli over at DC Comics. Then in 2011, the story was adapted into a feature animated film. This means that 2021 is the ten-year anniversary of the release of the film.
To celebrate the occasion, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment is releasing a fully-remastered version of Batman: Year One. It will include the newly-created bonus feature, Reinventing Gordon. Along with a variety of featurettes, audio commentary, and an animated short. You can get your copy on November 9th, 2021. It will be available for 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Combo Pack & Digital.
Here is the synopsis for Batman: Year One
Originally released on Blu-ray and DVD in 2011, Batman: Year One is based on the landmark 1987 DC titles from 12-time Eisner Award winner and Eisner Award Hall of Fame member Frank Miller and illustrator David Mazzucchelli. The film depicts young Bruce Wayne’s return to Gotham City in his first attempts to fight injustice as a costumed Super Hero. The playboy billionaire chooses the guise of a giant bat to combat crime, creates an early bond with a young Lieutenant James Gordon (who is already battling corruption from inside the police department), inadvertently plays a role in the birth of Catwoman, and helps to bring down a crooked political system that infests Gotham City.
Batman: Year One is a must-read comic book arc for all Batman fans. Heck just comic book fans in general. Having an animated film to accompany it just makes it that much better.
