The premise of this novel and the original comics are really quite simple (albeit quite a stretch, I have to admit). Gotham City is ravaged by an earthquake, the U.S. Government refuse to repair the damage and the citizens are ordered to move out. All bridges and entry-points are detonated - only the insane and hopeless stay back. Batman decides to stay on as the protector of his city - whatever is left of it!
Now once you've suspended your disbelief over the unlikely premise, you'll find that this story actually works on many levels. Especially in our times - we are seeing daily how people in Afghanistan and Iraq are working hard to bring order and a semblance of sanity back into their lives. And it works especially well for Batman. Batman, after all, is a Bruce Wayne's method of "forcing" his existence to make sense after witnessing his parents' brutal murder as a kid all those years back. Now, Batman is "forcing" a hopeless city back to order and meaning.
The original comics (now collected neatly into five tradepaperback) were great. Greg Rucka's novel is better. Somehow, seeing this story in prose makes it that much more "serious". Rucka, in this novel, decides to write more from the point of view of Gordon, Montoya, Essen and the GCPD rather than emphasizing the role of the costumed-vigilantes the way the comics do. Each section of the novel is prefaced by the journal entries of the crippled Barbara Gordon (the former Batgirl and now Oracle). The 'personal' touch of Barb's diaries makes the story just that much more potent and emotional. Even the exploits of Batman, the new Batgirl, Nightwing, etc.

(Note: This is a review for No Man's Land Vol. 1. Amazon groups all five volumes and the novelization as one product.)
After a massive earthquake levels Gotham, the US government cuts off support and blocks off the city from the rest of the country. Arkham Asylum's most dangerous inmates are freed, and gang wars rage as each take various chunks of Gotham for themselves. This is the situation Batman and his allies find themselves in in No Man's Land, a massive crossover that ran between 1998/1999. Vol. 1 of this collected edition contains two story arcs; the first highlights a new, unknown Batgirl, Batman's return to Gotham, and the beginnings of Jim Gordon's vow to retake his city. The second story features Huntress and the Scarecrow as they deal with a weapons cache hidden beneath a refugee center.
While DC seems to have gotten carried away with massive crossover arcs after the infamous "Knightfall" saga, "No Man's Land" is an excellent read. Characters are stripped of their normal trappings and forced to fend for themselves in new and interesting ways. Batman operates in daylight to make his presence known; Jim Gordon resorts to unethical tactics by turning gangs against each other; even Scarecrow finds new ways to create fear without his toxins. What helps "No Man's Land" trememdously is that while each chapter of a story was published in a different Batman title, they retained the same writer and visual team. The continuity is served much better this way, without awkward pauses while switching writers or varying art styles that distract from the story. The art itself is very good, conveying the hopelessness of ruined Gotham. It's nothing overly spectacular or notable as far as comics go, but it's a solid effort.
Again, the writing is very good.

Alright, Batman was always suppose to be a flawed hero but this is just plain stupid. Since it based on a comic book I'm not going to get into the likelyhood that a entire city would be removed from the nation because of crime. However, I will talk about how Batman and the other characters in this book have this flawed sense of justice and morals. Every good guy in this book seems to think it is more important to save the bad guys life no matter what. Good lord if any of the major characters took out the bad guys when they had a chance in this book then hundreds of the average citizens would not have been killed. I mean come on, Joker and Two Face kill people randomly yet Batman and the others somehow allow give them a pass so they can kill some more. I know killing oif these character would ruin any future books, but how can you look up to Batman as a hero if he is willing to let innocent people die because he doesn't have the guts to take care of the bad guys. I mean even the normal average everyday bad guys in the book gets a pass. The crazy policeman Petite killed lots of people while he tried to keep his piece of the No Man's Land pie, yet he gets a pass when one of the good guys is right there to stop him. I would love to read more from the DC universe, but the hero's in these books have such a weak foundation it tough to read. Batman has no moral high ground to stand on. If the hero is so flawed that you can't at least feel for him, then what the [heck] is the use. Not worth the time to read it in my opinion. But hey, maybe I am biased, I've been a Marvel fan for 35 plus years.
