I’ve been meaning to read DC Icons series since they released but hadn’t had the chance to get to them, so I was excited to have a chance to read the graphic novel adaptation!
Batman: Nightwalker takes place before Bruce Wayne actually becomes Batman. We see him as an eighteen year old who just inherited his family’s fortune and company who has a need for justice. The beginning idea of becoming Batman is definitely there in his character as Bruce is drawn to catching the criminal gang the Nightwalkers . . . and drawn to the mysterious girl Madeleine, who was arrested at the site of the Nightwalkers’ last murder.
The art itself was great. I loved the look of young Bruce Wayne and the layout of the panels. The art is all in shades of a blue-ish gray and black with an occasional pop of yellow. This really helped create the dark atmosphere and setting and added suspense.
Overall, if you’re a fan of Marie Lu’s Batman: Nightwalker you’re going to want to check out this adaptation! And if you’re like me and haven’t read the novel, the graphic novel is a great way to experience the story.
