I loved it! Got it in no time and once I started reading it I just couldn't stop! It's awesome and now that I'm hooked I have to buy the Vol. 2 and Vol. 3!

By Lawrence on Aug. 18 2014
Format: Paperback
Good art, good story, good price for 600+ pages. It's a bit heavy on narration, as most comics were during and before the 90s. My favourite part has to be when Batman resigns himself to the fact that he's not going to win against Bane (not a spoiler considering the cover) yet decides to go for it anyway "one last time" (sure). The story didn't exactly meet my expectations. I always thought that Bane broke Batman through a semi-fair and square fight, where Batman used his gadgets and Bane used the Venom with Bane just winning in the end. Instead, Bane attacks Batman only after a long scheme to drain him physically and mentally while he was already in very poor health. It's like the writers were trying to cram the idea that Batman could never lose for real. The concept definitely makes Bane seem more cunning, but it's not as impressive. Still, good read.

As a casual comic reader I wanted to get up to speed on the Bane/Batman mythology before seeing Dark Knight Rises. This series delivered in spades. 600+ pages that had so many shocking developments and dark turns I'd lose an hour at a time without even knowing it. In addition to Bane's intense origin, this series highlighted many other lesser, yet chilling villians I wasn't aware of from Batman's rogues gallery. Can't wait to read Vol 2 and see how Bruce Wayne brings honor back to the bat-suit.

I had initially anticipated a flimsy novel, with a shaky storyline, however, I was pleasantly surprised. The depth and motive behind Bane's rage is realistic, as is the way he is presented. If you wish to read this novel, it's best if you read "Vemon" previously, but not totally necessary.

The first vol of this series was really intense.
If you enjoyed the the dark knight rises, this book was way better.

This Novel is a good 2 or 3 inches thick (worth the money just by volume) and has great stories throughout with a few fillers here and there, all leading up to the momentous battle with Bane and the defeat of Batman. Throughout the novel Bane discovers his purpose in life - to destroy Batman. He uses just as much of his brain as he does his brawn. He's no meat-head.

I would highly recommend.
