I'll just put this right here.

Finally read BATMAN: YEAR ONE this week. I’d seen the movie before, but this was a) still something I wanted to read and b) a birthday gift. Of course, I loved it. 
*
What I like most about this story is that it focuses a bunch on Gordon. 
*
What I like most about this book is the extra stuff at the back showing the work in-progress, loads of notes from David Mazzucchelli and looks at pages from Frank Miller’s script. 
*
I guess I kind of just love everything about it - story’s good, art’s good, panel layout is so easy to follow (I got kind of lost reading THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS, by contrast), and now I pretty much just want to watch the animation again. Three cheers for Batman~

Finally dessert. The plate had two items on it, but they weren&#8217;t too photogenic. The first (not pictured) was some mango ice cream. It was just lying on the plate and sprinkled with what tasted like broken waffle cone (yum). Pictured is chocolate brûlée. It was da bomb diggity. And I don&#8217;t even care for #chocolate all that much. #french #japan #food #foodstagram #dessert #karuizawa #nagano #軽井沢 #長野

This was the &#8220;meat entrée,&#8221; which was some beef, wasabi sauce on the side, and a few bits of veg. The wasabi sauce went surprisingly well with this. #food #foodstagram #french #japan #wasabi #steak #nagano #karuizawa #軽井沢 #長野

Next up, the &#8220;fish course.&#8221; We had some salmon in this awesome cream sauce, some random veggies on the plate. A+ entree. #food #foodstagram #japan #nagano #karuizawa #fish #salmon #軽井沢 #長野 #french

Our third fancy course was cold (because it&#8217;s summertime) beet soup. It looked suspiciously like raspberry purée or something at first, but it only took a spoonful to discover the truth. Garnished with a bread stick. #beets #soup #food #foodstagram #japan #nagano #karuizawa #軽井沢 #french #赤カブ
