Great story! Great drawing! Take care however...., 14 Oct 2010
This is by far one the best graphic novels i have ever read! The storyline is so intriguing it keeps you wanting more and the art work is so vivid you can't take your eyes off it! I had read a few reviews on this book before i bought it and i must say, they did not lie when they said it is a must have! However the book itself is another question.
Batman is given one of his greatest challenges yet when he must figure out why some of his worst enemies are suddenly acting up and if so, how are their crimes connected? On top of that he must try and figure out who the mysterious character watching him is and what he has to do with all this. This is a great story with so many so many misdirections which have you wanting to know how the dark knight will react and whether or not he can beat this menace. This is a fantastic read and will
have you on the edge of your seat before you know it!
My only concern is the fact that the book has a slight problem keeping itself together. Sadly i did not heed the warning from one of the reviews about the quality of the binding holding the pages in. On my second or third read through i noticed that the pages began falling out, and i don't mean when i'm turning the page i mean when i'm holding the book they just started falling out! Now i managed to keep the book together using one of man kind's greatest inventions... the clip! However i strongly advise either buying the hardcover version of this book or finding a better quality paperback.
Aside from that little skirmish, this book is by far one of the greats which shows batman and his enemies at the top of their game.
A definite for everyone whether you're a novice to comics or a hardcore collector!
