Batman Noel Lee Bermejo

Batman Noel is an 112 page hardcover graphic novel written and illustrated by
Lee Bermejo and published by DC Comics on November 8, 2011.

Inspired by Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol, the Dark Knight must come to terms with his rogue's gallery of the past, present, and future, while exploring what it means to a hero.

While most assuredly a stretch for both Dickens and Batman fans, with a review score of 8.5 on IGN review, and described as "an instant classic," on Ain't it, by all accounts the premise works.

Just getting into Batman graphic novels recently. Killing Joke and Arkham Asylum so far. This looks great, and Christmassy too!

Greetings dear friend :) Taken to the digital versions, cheaper, but to be honest, while the graphics and story don't change, miss the feeling of wood pulp in my hands.

It always seems better to have the physical version to look at doesn't it. I'm not totally sold on the digital concept yet, but I like the idea of not having to find space to store them!

Never feel like I quite "own" anything I have in digital form.

(contemplates concept of ownership, lasting legacy and why carrots help you see in the dark...)
