The first time I read the original Knightfall TPB Collection I was very confused by gaps in the story. This Edition is the previously-unpublished-in-collected-format Knightquest saga.

Thankfully it doesn't overlap with the old Editions, so I can put it in my bookshelf in between Who Rules the Night and Knightsend without missing or duplicating any issues.

This whole saga is fantastic. A must read and obviously with The Dark Knight Rises coming out, people are wanting to know more about Bane. Well this is where he started and isn't it brilliant?

Not like the dumb henchman in the movie Batman & Robin, Bane is a smart Master Criminal who is capable of going head to head in a battle of wits with the Dark Knight, as well as beating him in a battle of brawn.

Following on from the dramatic and well-known, but I won't spoil it ending to the 'Broken Bat' arc, much is changing in Gotham and we have a very different Batman to respond to the ever-evolving threats.

The whole saga is an absolute must-read.

My review focuses primarily on the same pro and con as everyone else, the pro is that at last Knightquest has been released allowing me to at last read this part of the story (being able to actually see the Abattoir business everyone was talking about in Knightsend was a major plus) and the con that a key part of the story is missing, namely the part that doesn't involve Az-Bats as he is called.

Occasionally we get brief cutaways to Tim Drake and extremely rarely Bruce Wayne, without context for where they are or exactly what they're doing, with hints to plot points and other things that I know are explained somewhere, but they aren't here and that is frustrating.

The big problem, is one others have said, namely that Bruce Wayne goes from crippled to healthy without any reason given to how this happened, or why Dr Kinsolving (who he went to rescue) is nowhere to be seen, I can see on Wikipedia what happened, but I don't want to have to check Wikipedia for a plot point this book should have in it.

I thank DC for letting me read this but in truth the title is misleading, this is the Knightquest: The Crusade storyline and thus I request that in turn the Knightquest: The Search storyline be released as well so I can finally read the entire epic storyline.

I've been waiting for the Knightsquest volume to come out for ages only to discover that the bit that interests me the most - Bruce Wayne's journey, has been extracted, so that's a little annoying. However, there are some good stories within this one. I liked how they developed the transformation of Batman. It's peaked my interest to wonder how Frank Miller would have told this story. His love of the psychological could have made this even more complex and interesting.

KNIGHTQUEST - Vol 2.

Knightquest continues directly from Vol 1. with the all new hi-tech Batman becoming aware with the moral burdens of the mantle of the bat whilst also being haunted by persuasive visions from his past. Unlike Vol. 1, Batman has no main antagonist this time other than his own conscience and the story arc continues to build upon the issue of his failing sanity as originally alluded to in Vol. 1.
This theme continues throughout the volume as Batman batters a selection of low rent thugs while gradually slipping into a state of egoism and self delusion. This story arc sounds much more interesting in concept but in practice it does tend to draw out what is an obvious outcome. Outside of this, there are some decent Joker and Catwoman stories, but the volume generally, huffs and puffs in making it's point as the majority of readers will have already worked out that Jean Paul Valley was probably mildly psychotic before the end of Vol. - confirming this would take little more than a handful of pages rather than the 600 contained in this volume. Somewhat jarringly, the last 21 pages put the main story arc on track as a main character returns, having made a miraculous, but unexplained recovery. Up to this point, however, much of this remainder of the volume feels like filler.

As with Vo1. the print production, colouring and binding are first class.

At Last- after many years 'KnightQuest' has been released in a bound graphic novel. Strange at it has taken years to be released as the fantastic 'Knightfall' (first part of this story) and 'Knightsend' (the Concluding part of the story) were released about 20 years ago. This focuses more on how Azrael acts as the Batman......he changes the suit, becomes more violent and distances himself from Robin...becoming a Batman that is not recognisable to Catwoman or Gordan. Essential for the whole fantastic story. If you haven't read Knightfall - read it first as it is one of the best Batman graphic novels ever.

This book made me feel my age! It's been nearly 20 years since I bought the Knightfall and Knightsend collected editions and tried to fill in the blanks inbetween by scouring comic shops for the Knightquest back-issues.

Just seeing this book makes you appreciate why the collection may have originally been left unpublished - it's a weighty tome the size of Knightquest and Knightsend combined, not to mention the fact that the jumping between paralell stories from each of the monthly Batman/ Catwoman/ Robin titles can make for a less streamlined story, as threads from the different comics start to intertwine.

Also, we're still waiting for KnightQuest: The search (the Bruce Wayne arc) in collected format - as it stands, this arc is left hanging inbetween Knightfall and the very end of this edition, although the fact that KnightQuest : the Crusade is here makes me optimistic that it won't be long until it's sister edition is released.

That said, The Crusade is still a vital read for anyone who has already bought the other volumes. Especially as it fills out Jean-Paul's character for probably the first time (continuity wise) since "The Sword of Azrael" - making the reader that much more sympathetic towards him - the Tally Man arc is especially good, as is The Immigrant.
