Batman: Year One
the Graphic Novel
Written by Frank Miller (!) and art by David Mazzucchelli, and Richmond Lewis inking.
96 pages full color, my copy is cover priced at $10.
Old as it is (1988) and as often as I'd read it still in good condition so I know they used good glue for the 'perfect bound' edition. This is the novice days of the Dark Knight. See him fight a pimp in the street before he even had a costume selected. See his first encounter with Catwoman, in and out of costume. Why does James Gordon trust someone he doesn't even know? All in this book as well as the first ever rooftop meeting between Gordon and Batman.

the animated feature
This movie produced by Bruce Timm, Lauren Montgomery, Andrea Romano, etc. Follows the graphic novel so closely yet still managed to make me sit on the edge of my seat (the warehouse scene is radical). The disk comes with a DC Showcase short starring Catwoman that even manages to tie into the feature presentation. Also, a sneak preview of Justice League: Doom and All-Star Superman. I didn't get the 2-disk set so I couldn't tell you any more about the special features. Definitely worth getting, imo.
