In 1994 the collection legends of Batman (Legends of the Dark Knight in the original) already had been canceled long ago like many others. Those were times complicated even for a series of such quality as this. Zinco was gradually closing the format series staple to the Tome, which allowed them to include much material on a few new features a month. In what the Publisher refers to Batman legends published one collecting the first two per year for the years 1991 and 1992.

The first was entitled "Duel". It was written by Dennis O'Neil, and the drawing was in charge of a varied roster of authors: Jim Aparo, Joe Quesada, Keith Giffen, Michael Golden, etc. The truth is that legends of Batman always had been highlighted by having very reputed authors in all its plot arcs, and in that sense this first Annual was no less. "Duel" was a rather curious history since it Batman was going a site to another. Hell to the second world war, for example, all without apparent reason. Although the style of the artists was very varied this not disturbed in reading. The story was clearly divided into several parts (one for each scenario in which moved Batman), which also came as ring finger to the artists by their styles. The only link between some parts of the story was the mysterious backpack that Batman carried at all times, and that seemed to be important for some reason. The reason for this strange journey is included only at the end of the comic.

The second story included in this volume was "Vows". In English, Yes, Zinco did not translate the title. O'Neil repeated as a screenwriter, this time with pictures of Michael Netzer. The thing was James Gordon and his partner, Sarah, finally going to marry. As usual in comics always sounding bells things are complicated. Bad shift was Flass, character created by Frank Miller for your one year and which had not become namely since then. O'Neil recovered it for the occasion as a man who seeks revenge on Gordon to ascribe him losing his job as a policeman. By the way, Legends of the Dark Knight was raised so that it is centered in the early days of Batman, however this second annual it was well framed in the immediate present (in 1992, is clear). And you don't have to be very clever to imagine that at the end of the comic the couple is married.

Two very different comics, with radically different but equally interesting arguments. Jobs highlights one would be the first, if only by the good artists that participate in it. Regarding the issue of zinc, as usual in those days, with pages that are taking off with tremendous ease of the spine. At least included the cover of the annual second and a pair of beautiful illustrations, which is always appreciated.
