    Default Zero Year Finale in BATMAN #33: Preview/Discussion

    It's been one hell of a year in Gotham City, and it all comes down to this: Batman vs. The Riddler! Gotham City and the Dark Knight will never be the same! Don't miss this special, extra-sized finale of "Zero Year!"

    Full preview here.



    This is the end. Been a great arc but I'm glad it's wrapping up. Batman punching tigers, cool robots, hobo commando Gordon and his glorious beard, perhaps a final page return of the Red Hood?

    Saw the full 5 page preview over at DC's website and I have to say I'm very excited for this conclusion.

    Things I hope to see:
    Red Hood/Joker appearance (even a mention would be nice)
    Dick Grayson
    Selina Kyle
    Riddler in Arkham Asylum

    Wow...the quiz seems really good. Looking forward to this.

    I hope Zero Year will get the Absolute treatment. Might be the first one I get

    Expecting a Haly's Circus reference(show is gonna be in town in a few weeks) and definitely wanting a Joker final page.

    Glad to see Capullo and Snyder move on though.

    Anyone gonna read ZY from the beginning? I think that might be the best way to thoroughly enjoy the finale.

    I'm incredibly excited for this issue because in addition to what will probably be an action packed finale it means we're finally done with Zero Year! Yay!!! We did it!

    I don't think zero year has been bad by any stretch of imagination. It's been consistently good and sometimes even great but this final run has stretched plausibility beyond breaking point and this particular form of the Riddler doesn't really work for me.

    I'll look forward to reading the whole story from start to finish soon.

    I'm waiting for the trade before reading this serie's does it contradict miller's year one book much and other books set in batman's early days like long halloween and such?
    Good companion to other year one stories? Or an insult?

    Not even close to a companion or contradiction of Year One at all.

    Zero Year is completely it's own and can't be compared to any other Batman origin story. It was kind of tough to follow issue to issue for a year, but now that
    you can read them all in one sitting I'd definitely recommend it.

    It's not an either or situation - they're very different stories that compliment each other marvellously despite many of the finer continuity details not lining up perfectly (to be expected when they're written 25 years apart). Scott Snyder has a deep reverence for Year One and rather than try to override it or work strictly within its boundaries he's done a 180 which lets them be their own thing, and where in my head I have no problem at all fitting them into a larger cohesive Batman story.

    I'm surprised people aren't going nuts for that one panel that seems to allude that Bruce spent some time in a mental ward.

    It looks great! Can't wait to read the finale, then reread all three arcs as one story!

    That being said, I do hope the next few stories are 6 issues or less.

    And I bet you that mental ward is......(drumroll)........Arkham Asylum.

    Nah. I don't think it will be Arkham. That might be a little too extreme for vandalism.

    I have enjoyed this story up until this final issue. I found this to be a rather weak ending to the story. Yes we already knew that Batman was going to win, but it could have been more exciting.
