Batman: Knightfall, Part One: Broken Bat 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". ...

    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...

    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 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 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...

    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...

    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 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...

    "and in the corner to my left...BANE!" really my first batman story arc to put under my belt, and actually one of my favorites. sure, the tank baddie is a staple for every superhero, but bane is quite different. his strategic crippling of batman ultimately culminating in batman's li...

    Amazing story on how Bane tries to destroy Batman's will and confidence with the help of all those crazy Arkham villains.. And then.. the apotheosis of this volume!! Can't wait to read the next chapter of this story.. ...

    Not accepting any help made Batman really annoying and the end of part 1 of this story predictable, therefore less enjoyable. Right from the start, Robin was way smarter and would have been a better Batman. ...

    It was long but interesting. ...

    I like Batman and the comics but this is a novel wich said in the beginning of the book. I was so bored in the book but it did show the Batman in a Good way and how he needs a replacement or he will let Gotham down. The author try to do something different, and he failed me because lik...

    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...

    I am pretty sure I read most of these when they were originally published, but what fun to read again. This is one oft the greatest Batman stories ever told! To weaken the Bat, Bane blows a hole in Arkham Asylum freeing the some of the world's most dangerous and insane criminals. This ...

    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...

    Not a full review here, just a few thoughts. Rated 2 stars which feels a little low but this was a bit of a slog to get through. Was not on board with JP as he is introduced here. It is such a HUGE leap to believe how quickly Bruce Wayne backs this guy to the point that he does... like...

    Knightfall Volume 1 has 2 stories. One where "Batman" rounds up some of the most famous villains in Gotham and another where he is confronting his greatest enemy yet - Bane. This is a huge storyline and one of the most famous ones in the DC canon. The book opens with the origin of Bane...

    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 ...

    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...

    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...

    Not a full review here, just a few thoughts. Rated 2 stars which feels a little low but this was a bit of a slog to get through. Was not on board with JP as he is introduced here. It is such a HUGE leap to believe how quickly Bruce Wayne backs this guy to the point that he does... like...

    Knightfall Volume 1 has 2 stories. One where "Batman" rounds up some of the most famous villains in Gotham and another where he is confronting his greatest enemy yet - Bane. This is a huge storyline and one of the most famous ones in the DC canon. The book opens with the origin of Bane...

    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...

    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...

    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 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...

    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...

    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 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...

    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 ...

    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...

    "and in the corner to my left...BANE!" really my first batman story arc to put under my belt, and actually one of my favorites. sure, the tank baddie is a staple for every superhero, but bane is quite different. his strategic crippling of batman ultimately culminating in batman's li...

    Amazing story on how Bane tries to destroy Batman's will and confidence with the help of all those crazy Arkham villains.. And then.. the apotheosis of this volume!! Can't wait to read the next chapter of this story.. ...

    Not accepting any help made Batman really annoying and the end of part 1 of this story predictable, therefore less enjoyable. Right from the start, Robin was way smarter and would have been a better Batman. ...

    I like Batman and the comics but this is a novel wich said in the beginning of the book. I was so bored in the book but it did show the Batman in a Good way and how he needs a replacement or he will let Gotham down. The author try to do something different, and he failed me because lik...

    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...

    I am pretty sure I read most of these when they were originally published, but what fun to read again. This is one oft the greatest Batman stories ever told! To weaken the Bat, Bane blows a hole in Arkham Asylum freeing the some of the world's most dangerous and insane criminals. This ...

    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...

    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 ...

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

    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...

    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 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 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...

    Not a full review here, just a few thoughts. Rated 2 stars which feels a little low but this was a bit of a slog to get through. Was not on board with JP as he is introduced here. It is such a HUGE leap to believe how quickly Bruce Wayne backs this guy to the point that he does... like...
