5.0 out of 5 stars First part of an unnatural trilogy, 8 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Batman Knightfall TP Vol 01 (Paperback)
KNIGHTFALL - Vol 1.

Volume one represents the first part of the Knightfall trilogy and is followed by Knightquest and Knightsend, all averaging over 600 pages making for an 1,800 page epic storyline. Volume one was originally published as two separate volumes, 'Broken Bat' and who 'Rules the Night', what these editions didn't have was the 61 page 'Vengeance of Bane' origin story which is included here and really kick-starts the saga by explaining Bane's motive and ambition. Thereafter, the content is identical to the previous editions, charting Batman's infamous first battle with Bane, Batman's subsequent reinvention and the resulting rematch. Bane's scheme of using the full arsenal of Batman's enemies against him brings all the big names into the frame. The sub-stories are still great and all contribute to the overall story arc. The primary story arc is terrific and a genuine touchstone in comic history. Considering this is part one of a trilogy, however, the ending doesn't leave many loose ends other than how the new Batman will cope with the responsibility of the mantle of the bat.

The paper and print quality are both excellent. All three volumes are well bound. The only issue here being that all the real drama of the Knightfall saga is effectively captured within this one volume. Purists will probably be unable to resist collecting all three volumes but in truth there Vols 2 and 3 are a little padded out, particularly Vol. 2, and Bane isn't seen again.
