Batman: Overdrive is the prequel story to the worldwide phenomenon known as our current Batman. Overdrive starts three weeks before Bruce Wayne’s sixteenth birthday; his parents have been dead for the past eight years, but that doesn’t mean it’s any less difficult for him. Keeping himself busy with self-defense classes has sparked an interest in his life and has made him think of possibly taking this hobby a step further. Bruce has always had a special interest in his parents’ murder case, but after a string of car thefts, he feels like he is destined to do more with his resources and power as the heir of the Wayne estate. Making a few friends along the way, they work together to form the ultimate crime-fighting group and help mold Bruce Wayne into the Batman he is currently known to be.
Written in sequential art format, the story is simple to follow for almost any age of reader. The pictures are dark, much like the subject of the story. The length is just right and allows for the right amount of action, excitement, and self-growth to take place. This story is recommended for any fans of the Batman series, or DC comics in general.
