Overview

In 1994, DC Comics brought readers a landmark story featuring Batman. The Dark Knight has been Gotham City's protector for years, challenged by its many villains. But now there's a new villain on the scene, determined to conquer where others have failed. Known as Bane, he starts his campaign against Batman and Gotham by emptying Arkham Asylum, where so many of Batman's enemies are imprisoned and have spent their time plotting revenge. Almot single-handedly, Batman fights off these long-time opponents only to find himself so exhausted after it all that his strength fails him when Bane follows the onslaught to face Batman himself. Now Bruce Wayne is confined to a wheel-chair and must turn over his cloak and cowl to his apprentice, Azrael. But Azrael's philosophy of crime-fighting is much more violent and harsher than Batman's ever was. And now Bruce faces two challenges: the first is dealing with his incapacitation; and the second is dealing with Azrael who, it's become clear, is a loose cannon with an agenda all his own.

It Okay book but the first part of the chapter was good I didn't like what Bane did to Batman, the rest was not great and they cut parts from the original graphic novel that they should explains I guess that be too much.

I was skeptical about reading this book, only because I usually do not care for the novelization of comic books. However, this book was very well written and condensed the huge crossover into a very good story. The confrontation with Mr. Zsasz was awesome and great metaphor for the book overall. How does one fight monsters without becoming one?

At first, the book is a little slow, but it quickly graps you and you are fully into it until the very end. You get to see another side of the Dark Knight and diffinitely worth reading.

I never read the comic series this is taken from so I was reading from a novice point of view. I enjoyed the writing but felt that the book was leaving out gaps from the comics in some areas and being to literal in others. Some paragraphs read as if they were taken straight from the comics. If you like Batman and are not familiar with the story read it, but I have a feeling the story is better in the illustrated format of comics
