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.

To see how Batman: Year One works as a three-act story, visit here: Batman: Year One Story Structure.

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