9 cups of tea out of 11

Summary: Bruce Wayne goes to his eighteenth birthday party and then deliberately crashes his car into a criminal trying to escape police. As punishment he has to do community service at Arkham Asylum.

Likes: Bruce Wayne is sassy and I love it. Overall the tone was smart. Plus psychology and technology is a huge deal throughout, this is consistent with Batman comics. The art is expressive and the use of color works to emphasize.

Dislikes: I wanted a little more to flesh things out. I little more between Bruce and Madeleine, they were fascinating. Also a little more with his best friends, Dianne and Harvey Dent.

Overall I enjoyed this more than I thought I would. I even want to read the original novel because I imagine there will be more content.
