Batman: Knightfall, Part One: Broken Bat (Batman: Knightfall #1) Reviews

    This was one of the inspirations of Christopher Nolan for the last Batman film with Christian Bale in the lead. It is where Bane is introduced. The main story is fantastic - it is absolutely captivating when...oh never mind, no spoilers - you'll have to read it yourself. Let's just say...

    I found this more interesting than really enjoyable. The comics in this compilation are over 20 years old, and the old version of the storytelling really isn't my style. Also, I just have to say: most emo Batman ever. He starts this hefty collection hurt, and spends the entire thin...

    ..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 ...

    The masked villain Bane arrives in Gotham with a plan to destroy Batman - release all of Batman's prisoners from Arkham Asylum and once he's gone through them all, he'll be at his weakest and then... then he will break him! The first part of the Knightfall trilogy is overlong and a ...

    It's been a while since I've read a Batman comic, but they never get old. Batman's style changes, but it's always classic stories, and this is no exception. ...

    You can find my review on my blog by clicking here. If you?ve seen The Dark Knight Rises, then know that what you see here is one of the many comics that inspired some of the great scenes that Christopher Nolan translated onto the big screen. As much as this volume is known as an ...

    Extreme shock value, but it's just trying to copy "The Death of Superman". ...

    I really did like this one. Some drawbacks: Some of the characters and situations this one starts off with are kind of confusing if you don't know the back story on them. I really didn't understand some of what was going on until I looked up the prelude stuff on Wikipedia's Knightfa...

    I can't believe that the average rating for this book is 4 stars. The overall plot is reasonable, but the execution is bad. The book feels like Batman facing a series of mini-bosses before meeting the megaboss. The encounters feel contrived and the author does a poor job of conveying a...

    This is one of THE classic Batman stories, if only because it is a story people like to re-tell in various forms of media. I've seen versions of Bane go up against versions of Batman in cartoons, books, videogames, movies, etc. With the menacing, hulking form of Bane and a story about ...

    Batman: Knightfall vol. 1: Broken Batman by Doug Moench. This Batman story is not everyone, actually it brings everything you love and hate by the Caped Crusader in to one volume for a two volume story. First of all, you need to read to the lead up comics to understand it which...

    Batman: Knightfall Part 1 is the first Part of a three arc storyline of a classic tale, and one of the most popular of the Dark Knight's tales. Knightfall is about the classic tale of the fall of Bruce Wayne. The story sets off as a review to Bane, and his origin in the prison in Santa...

    It might be blasphemy to say this, but I found this volume to be just ?okay?. Yes, I know it?s regarded as a monumental event for Batman, but maybe it hasn?t aged well over the years or it?s truly a product of its time. Although at the time it was in the shadow of the Dea...

    Not as good as I remember it from my childhood, but still pretty good. The main gripe I have is that I remembered more Azrael in the background, and that apparently happened before this story arc? Also, Bane wasn't introduced here, there was some kind of side-story with the Riddler, K...

    I like the idea of having a copy of the graphic novels the recent Nolan movies are based off (Year 1 for Batman Begins, The Killing Joke for The Dark Knight), so, Knightfall seemed like a good investment to make. I only got Volume 1 because I'm frankly not interested in the subsequent ...

    Here's the thing about Knightfall, because of his huge stature both physically and mentally, and the way he subverts expectations as a villain, most people see the entirety of the story arch as being about Batman vs Bain. But it's not. Knightfall part 1 is a good story in it's own righ...

    I'm a person who came into Batman from the TV shows and movies, rather than from the comic books - which makes a pretty huge difference. In the movies and shows, the conservative subtext of Batman is simmering just beneath the surface, whereas in the comic books, it's right up there at...

    It's really a shame the prelude that provides the backstory for Batman's condition at the beginning of this story arc wasn't in any way included in this trade paperback. This begins with Bruce Wayne as a bit of a mess, and since it can be pretty difficult to track these things down in ...

    I missed Knightfall the first time around, because the series began right after I left for college and temporarily gave up my comics habit that was born from and raised on Batman. Nowadays a craving for superhero books boils up in me about twice a year, and the last one hit its peak ju...

    Classic DC arc from the 90's, where superheroes are shown to be fallible. It's not fun to watch Batman like this, run-down and ill and throwing batarangs all wrong. But it does make for a great story, of course. This first volume is 'broken bat' and yeah, he pretty much gets broken. It...

    This was a awesome read! Bane at his best trying to break the soul of Batman. This book became more popular after Nolan decided to complete his trilogy with Bane and a lot of inspiration for the movie is derived from this book. The book starts with Bane setting Arkham asylum loose. ...

    Good, but not as good as I remember from the 1990s. Chuck Dixon really was trying to return Batman to form, but this run still can't decide if it is hardboiled or campy. Coming off some of the 1970s and 1980s, more adult Batman stories by Alan Moore and Frank Miller, the Dark Knight di...

    Batman: Vengeance of Bane #1...An instant classic & a fine introduction to of the Dark Knight's more deadlier foes. More than a match for the Caped Crusader, Bane was originally an inmate at a Santa Priscan prison (The name of which currently escapes me). After hearing tales of the...

    I finally got a chance to read who Bane breaks the Bat and I have to say for when it was made its pretty good. Batman has to run an amazingly tough gauntlet as Bane terrorizes Gotham. He is pushed beyond his limits and isn?t relying on any kind of support system. Here you see how cra...

    I like Batman. I grew up with the bang keeps Batman on TV on a Saturday morning. Yes I'm too old for comics, bite me. But this story arc just left me flat. There are a few moments in there that are doing a lot of lifting. I suppose I'm after getting used to story arc that aren't as...

    I was pretty much gnawing my fingernails off out of fear for Bruce. He?s perpetually the man of strength and indestructible resilience and stamina, so it?s frightening to see him crushed by another man. A shitty villain like Bane. Oh sure, he deduced Batman?s true identity under ...

    I finished the first of three volumes of the Knightfall Saga. Overall, it was well done and ambitious, but I felt like it was lacking that special quality. The concept is solid, but I don't necessarily believe in the origin of Bane or why the hell he has out for Batman or wants to cont...

    Chuck Dixon kind of sucks. His dialogue and narration are so stilted i have no idea what to do with them at times. There are plenty of good things going on here but it really drags. I can't imagine reading this month by month. Perhaps if I had I'd rate this higher. That being said,...

    This story is a great one. This story is a classic and I believe it will always be a classic. Without giving away too much, Batman's world is turned upside down. This story was great because with closer inspection, Nolan's 2012 blockbuster "The Dark Knight Rises" is seen as partially i...

    I think that the best part of this storyline was the part leading up to Batman's defeat at the hands of Bane (who was at best a b-list villan, who looked like a mexican wrestler)... Basically, the first thing that Bane does when he comes to Gotham is crashes Arkham Asylum and basically...

    Batman: Knightfall vol. 1: Broken Batman by Doug Moench. This Batman story is not everyone, actually it brings everything you love and hate by the Caped Crusader in to one volume for a two volume story. First of all, you need to read to the lead up comics to understand it which...

    Batman: Knightfall Part 1 is the first Part of a three arc storyline of a classic tale, and one of the most popular of the Dark Knight's tales. Knightfall is about the classic tale of the fall of Bruce Wayne. The story sets off as a review to Bane, and his origin in the prison in Santa...

    It might be blasphemy to say this, but I found this volume to be just ?okay?. Yes, I know it?s regarded as a monumental event for Batman, but maybe it hasn?t aged well over the years or it?s truly a product of its time. Although at the time it was in the shadow of the Dea...

    Not as good as I remember it from my childhood, but still pretty good. The main gripe I have is that I remembered more Azrael in the background, and that apparently happened before this story arc? Also, Bane wasn't introduced here, there was some kind of side-story with the Riddler, K...

    I like the idea of having a copy of the graphic novels the recent Nolan movies are based off (Year 1 for Batman Begins, The Killing Joke for The Dark Knight), so, Knightfall seemed like a good investment to make. I only got Volume 1 because I'm frankly not interested in the subsequent ...

    Here's the thing about Knightfall, because of his huge stature both physically and mentally, and the way he subverts expectations as a villain, most people see the entirety of the story arch as being about Batman vs Bain. But it's not. Knightfall part 1 is a good story in it's own righ...

    I'm a person who came into Batman from the TV shows and movies, rather than from the comic books - which makes a pretty huge difference. In the movies and shows, the conservative subtext of Batman is simmering just beneath the surface, whereas in the comic books, it's right up there at...

    It's really a shame the prelude that provides the backstory for Batman's condition at the beginning of this story arc wasn't in any way included in this trade paperback. This begins with Bruce Wayne as a bit of a mess, and since it can be pretty difficult to track these things down in ...

    I missed Knightfall the first time around, because the series began right after I left for college and temporarily gave up my comics habit that was born from and raised on Batman. Nowadays a craving for superhero books boils up in me about twice a year, and the last one hit its peak ju...

    Classic DC arc from the 90's, where superheroes are shown to be fallible. It's not fun to watch Batman like this, run-down and ill and throwing batarangs all wrong. But it does make for a great story, of course. This first volume is 'broken bat' and yeah, he pretty much gets broken. It...

    I found this more interesting than really enjoyable. The comics in this compilation are over 20 years old, and the old version of the storytelling really isn't my style. Also, I just have to say: most emo Batman ever. He starts this hefty collection hurt, and spends the entire thin...

    ..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 ...

    I really did like this one. Some drawbacks: Some of the characters and situations this one starts off with are kind of confusing if you don't know the back story on them. I really didn't understand some of what was going on until I looked up the prelude stuff on Wikipedia's Knightfa...

    This was a awesome read! Bane at his best trying to break the soul of Batman. This book became more popular after Nolan decided to complete his trilogy with Bane and a lot of inspiration for the movie is derived from this book. The book starts with Bane setting Arkham asylum loose. ...

    Good, but not as good as I remember from the 1990s. Chuck Dixon really was trying to return Batman to form, but this run still can't decide if it is hardboiled or campy. Coming off some of the 1970s and 1980s, more adult Batman stories by Alan Moore and Frank Miller, the Dark Knight di...

    Batman: Vengeance of Bane #1...An instant classic & a fine introduction to of the Dark Knight's more deadlier foes. More than a match for the Caped Crusader, Bane was originally an inmate at a Santa Priscan prison (The name of which currently escapes me). After hearing tales of the...

    I finally got a chance to read who Bane breaks the Bat and I have to say for when it was made its pretty good. Batman has to run an amazingly tough gauntlet as Bane terrorizes Gotham. He is pushed beyond his limits and isn?t relying on any kind of support system. Here you see how cra...

    I like Batman. I grew up with the bang keeps Batman on TV on a Saturday morning. Yes I'm too old for comics, bite me. But this story arc just left me flat. There are a few moments in there that are doing a lot of lifting. I suppose I'm after getting used to story arc that aren't as...

    I was pretty much gnawing my fingernails off out of fear for Bruce. He?s perpetually the man of strength and indestructible resilience and stamina, so it?s frightening to see him crushed by another man. A shitty villain like Bane. Oh sure, he deduced Batman?s true identity under ...

    I finished the first of three volumes of the Knightfall Saga. Overall, it was well done and ambitious, but I felt like it was lacking that special quality. The concept is solid, but I don't necessarily believe in the origin of Bane or why the hell he has out for Batman or wants to cont...

    Chuck Dixon kind of sucks. His dialogue and narration are so stilted i have no idea what to do with them at times. There are plenty of good things going on here but it really drags. I can't imagine reading this month by month. Perhaps if I had I'd rate this higher. That being said,...

    I can't believe that the average rating for this book is 4 stars. The overall plot is reasonable, but the execution is bad. The book feels like Batman facing a series of mini-bosses before meeting the megaboss. The encounters feel contrived and the author does a poor job of conveying a...

    It might be blasphemy to say this, but I found this volume to be just ?okay?. Yes, I know it?s regarded as a monumental event for Batman, but maybe it hasn?t aged well over the years or it?s truly a product of its time. Although at the time it was in the shadow of the Dea...

    Not as good as I remember it from my childhood, but still pretty good. The main gripe I have is that I remembered more Azrael in the background, and that apparently happened before this story arc? Also, Bane wasn't introduced here, there was some kind of side-story with the Riddler, K...

    Classic DC arc from the 90's, where superheroes are shown to be fallible. It's not fun to watch Batman like this, run-down and ill and throwing batarangs all wrong. But it does make for a great story, of course. This first volume is 'broken bat' and yeah, he pretty much gets broken. It...

    Good, but not as good as I remember from the 1990s. Chuck Dixon really was trying to return Batman to form, but this run still can't decide if it is hardboiled or campy. Coming off some of the 1970s and 1980s, more adult Batman stories by Alan Moore and Frank Miller, the Dark Knight di...

    Batman: Knightfall Part 1 is the first Part of a three arc storyline of a classic tale, and one of the most popular of the Dark Knight's tales. Knightfall is about the classic tale of the fall of Bruce Wayne. The story sets off as a review to Bane, and his origin in the prison in Santa...

    It might be blasphemy to say this, but I found this volume to be just ?okay?. Yes, I know it?s regarded as a monumental event for Batman, but maybe it hasn?t aged well over the years or it?s truly a product of its time. Although at the time it was in the shadow of the Dea...

    Not as good as I remember it from my childhood, but still pretty good. The main gripe I have is that I remembered more Azrael in the background, and that apparently happened before this story arc? Also, Bane wasn't introduced here, there was some kind of side-story with the Riddler, K...

    I like the idea of having a copy of the graphic novels the recent Nolan movies are based off (Year 1 for Batman Begins, The Killing Joke for The Dark Knight), so, Knightfall seemed like a good investment to make. I only got Volume 1 because I'm frankly not interested in the subsequent ...

    Here's the thing about Knightfall, because of his huge stature both physically and mentally, and the way he subverts expectations as a villain, most people see the entirety of the story arch as being about Batman vs Bain. But it's not. Knightfall part 1 is a good story in it's own righ...

    I'm a person who came into Batman from the TV shows and movies, rather than from the comic books - which makes a pretty huge difference. In the movies and shows, the conservative subtext of Batman is simmering just beneath the surface, whereas in the comic books, it's right up there at...

    It's really a shame the prelude that provides the backstory for Batman's condition at the beginning of this story arc wasn't in any way included in this trade paperback. This begins with Bruce Wayne as a bit of a mess, and since it can be pretty difficult to track these things down in ...

    I missed Knightfall the first time around, because the series began right after I left for college and temporarily gave up my comics habit that was born from and raised on Batman. Nowadays a craving for superhero books boils up in me about twice a year, and the last one hit its peak ju...

    Classic DC arc from the 90's, where superheroes are shown to be fallible. It's not fun to watch Batman like this, run-down and ill and throwing batarangs all wrong. But it does make for a great story, of course. This first volume is 'broken bat' and yeah, he pretty much gets broken. It...

    This was a awesome read! Bane at his best trying to break the soul of Batman. This book became more popular after Nolan decided to complete his trilogy with Bane and a lot of inspiration for the movie is derived from this book. The book starts with Bane setting Arkham asylum loose. ...

    Good, but not as good as I remember from the 1990s. Chuck Dixon really was trying to return Batman to form, but this run still can't decide if it is hardboiled or campy. Coming off some of the 1970s and 1980s, more adult Batman stories by Alan Moore and Frank Miller, the Dark Knight di...

    Batman: Vengeance of Bane #1...An instant classic & a fine introduction to of the Dark Knight's more deadlier foes. More than a match for the Caped Crusader, Bane was originally an inmate at a Santa Priscan prison (The name of which currently escapes me). After hearing tales of the...

    I finally got a chance to read who Bane breaks the Bat and I have to say for when it was made its pretty good. Batman has to run an amazingly tough gauntlet as Bane terrorizes Gotham. He is pushed beyond his limits and isn?t relying on any kind of support system. Here you see how cra...

    I like Batman. I grew up with the bang keeps Batman on TV on a Saturday morning. Yes I'm too old for comics, bite me. But this story arc just left me flat. There are a few moments in there that are doing a lot of lifting. I suppose I'm after getting used to story arc that aren't as...

    I was pretty much gnawing my fingernails off out of fear for Bruce. He?s perpetually the man of strength and indestructible resilience and stamina, so it?s frightening to see him crushed by another man. A shitty villain like Bane. Oh sure, he deduced Batman?s true identity under ...

    I finished the first of three volumes of the Knightfall Saga. Overall, it was well done and ambitious, but I felt like it was lacking that special quality. The concept is solid, but I don't necessarily believe in the origin of Bane or why the hell he has out for Batman or wants to cont...

    Chuck Dixon kind of sucks. His dialogue and narration are so stilted i have no idea what to do with them at times. There are plenty of good things going on here but it really drags. I can't imagine reading this month by month. Perhaps if I had I'd rate this higher. That being said,...

    This story is a great one. This story is a classic and I believe it will always be a classic. Without giving away too much, Batman's world is turned upside down. This story was great because with closer inspection, Nolan's 2012 blockbuster "The Dark Knight Rises" is seen as partially i...
