Batman No Man's Land Vol. 1 (New Edition) 4.3 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 8 reviews.

This is an old-school style crossover, with the story spread across multiple titles, writers, and artists. As a result, the quality changes drastically from story arc to story arc. The opening few issues, focusing on the GCPD retaking Gotham, are excellent, followed by an enjoyable but underwhelming return for Batman. The middle tale featuring Huntress and Scarecrow is bad to awful, with a ridiculous script and stale art. Finally, several shorter stories close this volume out, with a really excellent Black Mask arc and an issue by BPRD artist Guy Davis! Issues featuring Azrael are also spread throughout, ranging in quality from good to horrible. Ultimately, No Man's Land is this sort of read, where you're thrilled one issue and bored to death the next. Readers should probably only dive into this crossover after they've read through all of Batman's more quality adventures.

This is a re-issue of an excellent story. While unlike the original printing, this edition includes stories from associated titles. Having all the story arcs within one edition improves the main story. If you haven't read "No Man's Land", or only a portion, this is an excellent addition to your collection.

Great classic story of Batman trying to retake Gotham City after an earthquake leaves Gotham partly destroyed and the government decides it's easier to just ignore it. HIGHLY RECCOMEND!!!

Growing up I always thought of the DC Universe as hokey or cheesy until I read this crossover. How Batman, Oracle, Huntress, the GCPD, etc. deal with the very real life issues of an earthquake and being totally cut off from aid from the United States is so interesting to see. While it sounds crazy this seems realistic so me. Villains who stayed would still be interested in controlling what they could. You definitely get to see the different shades of grey for the heroes of the book. The two stories here are very different but tell different tales in this new world. Bob Gale’s contribution is brilliant. Devin Grayson’s arc involving the church and Scarecrow is good but a little clumsy. The art by both Alex Maleev and Dale Eaglesham is great. Overall a great start to a hugely successful Bat-centric crossover.

I just finished Vol. 3 and am looking forward to Vol. 4. The story is really intriguing and even inspiring. It really show what the great characters of Batman are made of when Gotham is at its complete worst.
