By Mr. S. W. Steel VINE VOICE
This is the conclusion to the epic Knightfall trilogy that is preceded by Knightfall 1: Broken Bat and Knightfall 2:He Who Rules the Night.
This picks up where volume 2 left off, where Azrael has asumed the mantle of the Bat, and has taken down Bane to rule over Gotham. However, he plays a very different Batman to that of Bruce Wayne's original; he is prepared to step over the line to get the job done. He is reckless and doesn't protect innocent bystanders, and is not far away from becoming a one man judge, jury and executioner! The visions he has of Saint Dumas are getting stronger, and he is now less his own man, and more the brainwashed drone of ruthless brotherhood.
Meanwhile, Bruce Wayne trains to get his body and mind back into shape to take on Azrael and reclaim the mantle of the Batman.
This final volume is concerned with the epic fight between Bruce Wayne and Azrael, and is not as subtle as the previous two volumes - which is mainly because there is less plot in this one, and more action. If you like huge fights, with a bt less story, then this will be your favourite of the trilogy. In my opinion though, it doesn't have the depth of volume one and two. There are some good pieces where Nightwing and Robin work together to help Batman, and by far my favourite bit of the entire volume is where Bruce Wayne steels himself to jump out off the skyscrapers and swing through Gotham like he used to. He does this a few times, and i thought this was an excellent piece of work, as it shows the doubt in his mind as to whether he can recapture his glory days.
The artwork in this final chapter is probably the best of the whole series, and the set pieces are well done.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great story! 28 Jan 2013
Great conclusion to the knightfall story arc. Great value for money. Only criticism is that with the conclusion for robin, knightwing and catwoman it does go on a bit.

3.0 out of 5 stars Could've been better 4 May 2010
This book starts with quite jarring leap ahead in time from part 2. Between these two volumes is, an as of yet unpiblished story called Knightquest. As a result this book begins with a number of major plot developments that happened between this and volume 2, and it would've been very useful to include a summary of this at the beginning.

After consulting wikipedia to fill the plot gap, I found the juxtaposition of Bruce Wayne building up and Jean Paul Valley breaking down to be quite interesting. After some epic fight sequences, however, the climax leaves something to be desired. I thought the ending was wrapped up too hastily, leaving me a tad unsatisfied after three massiv volumes.

Overall it was pretty solid but could've done with an initial synopsis of Knightquest and maybe an epilogue providing some sort of aftermath.

I am not a great fan of comic books but graphic novels provided an ideal way of satisfying an interest in the darker comics available in a more mature medium. So my first graphic novel experiences were with the 2 Batman : Knightfall and Knightsend trilogy and of the three the last one was by far the best. The action is fluid and constant throughout and the fights are by far the best of any batman comics I have ever read. But the build up to the finale is remarkably well constructed and made the final confrontation the best fight I have ever experienced in a graphic novel and certainly enough to make this one the best of the trilogy.

3.0 out of 5 stars Missed Oppurtunity 10 Jun 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Batman: Knightfall Vol 3 - Knightsend, after the epic Vol 1 and 2, feels like a huge missed opportunity.

The pacing throughout the Knightfall series is excellent and the beginning of Knightsend is no exception. We see Bruce Wayne ascending to his peak, in tandem with Jean Paul Valley (aka Azareal) descending further into madness. When the immovable object and the irresistible force meet, the opening skirmishes are enthralling and lead to a showdown in the Batcave.

It is in the Batcave, for me, where the wheels come off. The epic final battle is missing. Really, we need a moment that reverses Bruce Wayne's battering at the hands of Bane. Then when Bruce Wayne emerges victorious (as expected), his first decision back as Batman is puzzling. He hands the cape and cowl to Dick Grayson!?!

So the back end of Vol 3 is about Dick Grayson's first forays as Batman. They're good tales, especially when he takes on Two-Face. However, this' meant to be Bruce Wayne's rebirth as Batman. So it'd be much better suited to see tales of Bruce re-asserting himself against the likes of the Joker and repairing his relationships with the likes of Commissioner Gordon and Catwoman.

I found this to be not quite as exciting as Knightfall one and two. The beggining with Lady Shiva was some what boring and repetative- however it did get better near the end, if slightly silly ... Generally it was quite dissapointing.

Only the start really carries over from the previous volumes. The rest is pretty much unrelated. The whole of Knightfall could have been wrapped up in two volumes. Read more
