Story Structure in Graphic Novels — Batman: Year One
Last week, we discussed the plot structure for a tragic love story with Maus. This week, we’ll talk about a love story with a happy ending: Batman: Year One, by Frank Miller and David Mazzucchelli.
Lt. Gordon is new to the Hellhole that is Gotham City. To be a good cop in this town, he’ll need help; he’ll need a friend. His worst choice for a partner – the masked vigilante, Batman – may be his best.

(Spoiler Alert: If you have not read Batman: Year One, yet, I will be discussing the entire story.)
