9YEAR ONE

Frank Miller and David Mazzucchelli's "Year One" storyline that began in Batman #404 took place in the first year of Bruce Wayne's career as a crime fighter, which coincided with Jim Gordon's first year in Gotham as a police officer.

While Wayne formulated his

identity of Batman (largely by trial an error), Gordon was forced to find his way on a corrupt police force that didn't have his back. "Year One" developed Batman and Gordon's ongoing partnership during the darkest days of Gotham City, two soldiers coming up in the trenches told wonderfully by Miller and Mazzucchelli.
