"Finch's quality of art lives up to the hype with his detailed panels and sharp lines - all designed to explode off of the page"--"Tampa Bay Examin"er

About the Author

David Finch began his comic book career at the age of 22 at Top Cow. There, he created Ascension and Aphrodite IX, both of which were top sellers in the business. In 2001, he made the move to Marvel. His 15 issue run on Ultimate X-Men saw sales of the comic jump 40%. On Avengers, David's presence doubled sales with starting with his first issue. Eventually feeling the need for a change, David took on the monumental task of bringing a perennially low-selling, cancelled Moon Knight into the mainstream. His run on Moon Knight skyrocketed this title into the main Marvel universe and saw it sell over five times the all the title's previous releases. Now, David is working with Jeph Loeb on Ultimatum. In addition to his comic career, David has also worked on video games, music, and film. He has worked with Zack Snyder, Guillermo del Toro, Clive Barker, and Michael J. Straczynski, among others. His artwork can currently be seen in stores nationwide on the CD cover for the band Disturbed.

The most original plot device opens this Batman book: the inmates all escape from Arkham Asylum! Oh wait, that's not original, that's basically every other month. Newly freed, the inmates begin wreaking havoc on Gotham (so many windows smashed!) except some of them as displaying inordinate muscle mass and strength - almost like they're on venom... This new toxin has the added bonus of removing fear from the user so they are no longer afraid of the Dark Knight or any of Gotham's other masked vigilantes. But who's behind this new toxin? And a new character pops up, a skimpily dressed woman in bunny ears and tail - time for Batman to follow the White Rabbit; he doesn't want to be late...

The plotting of the book isn't bad, even though there are way too many characters crowding the pages. There are so many cameos from a whole range of the DCU, you'll feel swamped. But the story is fairly interesting and keeps you turning the pages, if only to find out who this White Rabbit character is. Her appearance though is fairly contrived - she is dressed as a lingerie model throughout. There is so much gratuitous T&A in this book purely for the boys to gawp at.

There's a lot of Lewis Carroll/Alice in Wonderland references in Batman generally isn't there? Besides the White Rabbit, writer Joe Harris (who?) pens a one-shot featuring Jervis Tetch aka Mad Hatter and Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum as if to hammer home the Wonderland references - to no real effect, other than making the reader wonder why that children's book has such an impact in Batman's world.

Writer Paul Jenkins has real trouble with dialogue and I found his characterisations wildly off.

I have been a fan of the Marvel universe for years and only knew a little about the DC universe. This bookn really is the first real read I have done of a DC book. Its fantastic. I knew that DC had relaunced all their titles and thought this would be a good place to start, I was not disapointed. The writing is excellent however I think its the art that steals the show. David Finch provides fabulous artwork throughout. I was even suprised to see some guest appearences from Superman, Flash and Wonder Woman. Thanks to this book I have decided to explore more of the DC universe. MUST HAVE.

Really sad to see the dark knight series is to be stopped. I always found it more adult, violent and down right darker than the stand alone Batman new 52 series. ( which I liked greatly) My advice is simply, get all 4 volumes in tpb in the dark knight series. Fantastic and hard-hitting.

Format: Paperback
The storyline running through issues #1-8 of the New 52’s Batman The Dark Knight is collected, along with issue #9 – a City of Owls crossover – as Batman The Dark Knight Volume 1: Knight Terrors TP (The New 52). This is the most enjoyable of the main New 52 Batman titles that I have read so far (Batman volume 1 & 2, Batman & Robin vol 1, Detective vol 1 & the City of Owls collection).It is a self-contained story with a beginning, middle and end, though with a few sub-plots to keep continuity going into future stories. It has excellent scripting and superb artwork, and while not a “The Brave & the Bold” comic, it does feature some JLA members as guest stars in several issues, and they are part of the plot, not just there as decoration. There are several members of the Batman Family in a few scenes to show that the main threat is taking place in a wider theatre of operations, and is being contained while Batman takes care of the source, and Alfred is a central figure and equal partner in much of the story, and as always, gets many of the best lines:
“A half-naked girl in white lingerie. No doubt the world wide web is replete with such images, Master Bruce. I shall do my utmost to sort through them all.”

Just to clarify, there is a new female costumed character in Batman’s life, and, always a suspicious event when taken together, a new female character in Bruce Wayne’s. The fact that they both have little scars on their noses does lead you to wonder if they are connected, but we are assured during the story that both have been seen at the same time in separate locations (“Yea” you say, “just like Batman and Bruce Wayne or Clark Kent and Superman”.

One of the better new 52 tales with an epic scope which includes a lot of familiar faces from the justice league in some short but welcome cameos. A very adult tale which includes a lot of batmans old adversaries and companions. Very enjoyable and definitely recommended.

Awful. Awful. Awful.
For the random reader it could be fun but im not even going to waste my time on an in depth review. Finch, stick to drawing as your writing is terrible. Batman says and does things he wouldnt and doesnt interact properly. The pages are over crowded and the story is just trying to squeeze as many characters into one book as possible creating a pointless mess. Do not waste your time and money.
Anyone who gives this more than one star is not a Batman reader or collector and probably just a casual fan or they would know better.
