When Warner Bros.' Batman hit theaters in the summer of 1989, director Tim Burton's masterpiece of action, atmosphere, and art direction smashed box office predictions and rewrote the conventional wisdom on what comic book movies could achieve--both financially and artistically.

In the wake of the film's success, DC Comics--keepers of the Dark Knight Detective's foundational four-color adventures--set out to bring as many of those moviegoers as possible into comic bookstores, and their first step was an official comics adaptation of Burton's newly minted blockbuster.

Crafted by comics legends Dennis O'Neil and Jerry Ordway and released at a time when home video was still in its infancy, Batman: The Official Comic Adaptation of the Warner Bros. Motion Picture became the "rewatchable" version of the movie for countless fans--and for many, it opened the door to a whole new world of sequential storytelling.

Batman: The 1989 Movie Adaptation Deluxe Edition presents this celebrated retelling of the Academy Award-winning film for the first time in a dedicated hardcover volume. This comprehensive 30th-anniversary collection features the complete original title as well as high-quality scans of Ordway's original, never-before-seen, black-and-white artwork for every page.

Ni de lejos el mejor trabajo de O'Neil o de Ordway pero con dos autores tan competentes la adaptación de la película de Tim Burton al cómic se quedó en un divertido entretenimiento. La mayoría de su encanto, para mí, es el dibujo de Ordway al que he admirado mucho siempre. El guión se nota que estaba condicionado por la película y aún así creo que O'Neil intentó darle sentido a los personajes y a la trama. No es una obra maestra, pero es bonito revisitarlo de vez en cuando.
