Batman: Year One

Jim Gordon and Batman meet face to face for the first time, realizing that they are not enemies, but are both fighting the same war. Jim Gordon takes to the police department, turning in several corrupt offices, drawing the ire of the rest of the department. Meanwhile, a strange new figure calling himself "The Joker" has arrived in Gotham City, so Gordon has a feeling that the Batman is needed.
