Six years ago, a vicious murderer terrorised Gotham City - and Batman couldn't stop the killings. Now the murders have begun again, and Batman has a chance at redemption. The Journey will take him through a terrifying hinterland of mystery and witchcraft. From the dark streets of Gotham to the darker jungles of wartime Vietnam. Success is Batman's only option - because if he fails again, all Hell will break loose...

Let me start by saying that Harvest Breed is one of the best looking graphic novels I have read for some time. George Pratt's artwork is amazing - most panels look like they belong in a gallery rather than a comic book.

The story is also engaging and original to the Batman universe. I haven't seen illustrations as sick and twisted as these since Dave McKean's work on Arkham Asylum.

Sadly there is a section of the book which is almost unreadable. I don't really want to squint, or ask other people: "What does that word say?" in order to enjoy a book.

Ignoring that, Batman fans should still be able to enjoy this beautifully presented graphic novel.
