What can a normal Human being do when the earth rumbles, What can a normal human being do when all the buildings fall and when children, women and men scream without anyone being able to hear them. Batman and his fellow protectors of gotham explore the tragic experience of being victims of an earthquake with no posibilities, beyond the ones their own skills can give them, also being victims of the pressure of a society full of sick and mentally divergent criminals. That will take advantage of any opportunity that luck,time or nature will give to them. An earthquake is one of them. ! Now, it's time to get Gotham city back! No man's land pictures how a group of Heroes try to return and reclaim the ruins of a city that once was their home. with all odds against and a community ruled by crime, madness and despair. this mission is almost impossible for a Normal Human Being, the thing is: Is Batman a Normal human Being.
The cool thing about Batman is that people can relate, I'ts like when there was an earthquake in Colombia and one in Turkey, I showed my father (who works in Disasters Prevention and aid, all over the world) the series of cataclysm, aftershock and No Man's Land and he could totally recall some events.
