I’ll readily confess to being a neophyte with regards to DC Comics, and I only knew of Batman: Knightfall since it’s probably one of the most famous comic narrative arcs in history, and would ultimately be reincarnated into Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises.

Knightfall has an excellent structure – a genius supervillain known as Bane breaks out all of Batman’s old adversaries from Arkham Asylum, unleashing them on Gotham not to accomplish any particular goal per se but to systematically exhaust the Batman with constant threats to the city. And it does exhaustionso very well. Over the course of Knightfall we see Batman pushed to his limits and then pushed past them, physically and mentally depleted. This is a hard thing to depict without it feeling like plot-convenient fatigue – particularly when the protagonist is already so impossibly stronger than any mere mortal – but Knightfall makes it work. It’s exhaustion done slow-burn – Batman slowly but surely begins making mistakes, compromising his morals, limping from one battle to another until even minor villains can threaten his life.

Speaking of minor villains… Knightfall uses them well, probably better than I’ve ever seen. Batman in general has a lot of quite frankly stupid antagonists – a guy who’s the Mad Hatter, or a ventriloquist, or obsessed with movies - all of which are basically a joke on their own. Knightfall manages to present them as a very serious threat, not because they’re intrinsically dangerous villains, but because they just keep coming. The looming threat of the more serious villains just around the corner – Bane, Joker, Scarecrow – adds a ton of tension to every encounter with a gimmicky crook.

So it’s good. The fatigue-laced combat is visceral, Batman’s psychological exhaustion is engrossing, and the relationship dynamics are all very solid. The famous splash page of Bane breaking Batman’s back is well-deserved payoff to a few hundred pages of build-up. My biggest complaint is less to do with Knightfall itself than with Batman more generally – namely that the universe has a massive over-reliance on using “insanity” as a motivation for its antagonists. Apart from Bane himself, really, none of the villains have much in the way of explanation for what they do, apart from acting out some arbitrary psychosis. It works in this setting, but only due to the exceptionally clever narrative. The artwork is fine but not particularly remarkable (I’ve been spoiled by the glossiness of modern graphic novels, I know). And I don’t really care for any of the police/mayoral characters. But for an excellent mix of action and psychological drama, it’s very much worth your time. ( )

Read this many years ago, and re-read recently as part of catching up with the Batman timeline. Part 1 is pretty straightforward - obviously essential reading for part 2, but nothing particularly exciting plot wise. Still, only 2 stars but fairly enjoyable romp after all this time. ( )

Wish I could have liked this a bit more than I did. I just found it a very repetitive and shallow piece of work. The poor artwork didn't help, either.

There are far better graphic novels out there, that don't rely on shock gimmicks. ( )

..and I thought I was excited for The Dark Knight Rises before.

I seriously had no idea that Bane could be this awesome. When he was announced as the villain in the new Batman film, I was really hesitant to get my hopes up. I mean, Bane?! That loser from Batman & Robin (note to self: never base anything on that garbage movie)?? All he did was grunt, scream and smash stuff. Other than brute force - he didn't seem like that much of a threat.

So when I was given this graphic novel for Christmas, I was pretty reluctant to even pick it up. However, it came with a pretty firm recommendation from a trusted friend, so I gave it a shot. It took a while for me to actually see where they were going with this arc but once it picked up and I began to understand, it blew me away.

Basically, Bane throws everything at Batman. Bane frees all the inmates at Arkham Asylum and exhausts Batman as he attempts to incarcerate them all. Already beaten up and apparently pretty sick, it doesn't take long for Batman to run out of gas and when that occurs, Bane will pounce.

I've never even been exposed to this side of Batman - he tries so desperately to maintain an image of endless determination against a task so enormous. Sure, you must imagine that at times his job can be pretty damn hard but its rare that he shows it. There are even scenes where he's drawn with this look of fear, knowing that it may be his end.

Despite the fact that I spent the better part of this review gushing over the story, I need to give it a 3 out of 5. Why? I'm not crazy about the artwork. Jim Lee is my favorite Batman artist of all time and it's kind of unfair that I compare everything to him - he's a pretty high measuring stick - but a lot of it looked kind of ugly. There is some great stuff to be found in here but it's few and far between.

This is only Part One, so I need to get my hands on 2 and 3. ( )
