Well worth reading, especially up through Batman's encounter with Bane.

This is a great compillation, it starts with "Vengeance of Bane", which tells Bane's origin and his interest in Gotham. It follows with the escape from Arkham and then continues with Knightfall, ending with the fight between Bane and Batman (Jean Paul Valley). Highly recomended, it also includes the original covers of the included numbers. If you want the complete collection, you should also buy volume 2 (Knightquest) and volume 3 (Knightsend).

The methodical "breaking" of Batman on the part of Bane is better realized in the full material than it is summarized - yes the big expected splash page of Bane breaking Batman's back is included, but it is more about the build up which is tense and very well paced. After that it fumbles a bit, going back in time several weeks to cover a villain story that you cannot possibly care about given what just happened. But otherwise a fantastic story that should be read by any fan. Additionally, this edition is a great value for the money - a dense volume in the original four color for less than $20!

Wow, that cover....anyway, when it comes to comic book villains, I find that I like the ones in the Batman universe. Mostly because they're just interesting and you want to know about them. My knowledge is mostly from the Arkham games, the animated series, Nolan Batman movies, etc. The art was okay but the story and characters were interesting. I like when you have a story when you have all or some of the villains join forces. Pretty good arc and well, been wanting to read this after seeing the movie obviously. Good start though.

The story is amazing. I loved the build up to Bane breaking the bat. Bane released the Arkham inmates including Killer Croc, Scarecrow, Joker, Poison Ivy, Zsasz, and Mad Hatter. After Bane breaks Batman's back, Jean Paul Valley takes up the mantle of Batman and it even shows Jean Paul's fight with Bane.
