The greatest Batman story of all time, KNIGHTFALL, continues!!! Batman has been defeated by the murderous Bane in mortal combat, a battle which resulted in Bane breaking the dark knight's spine! With Batman broken, Gotham City is now helpless to Bane's wrath! Is this the end of the Batman's beloved city, has the caped crusader finally failed to keep his promise? NO!!! Even though his back is broken, Bruce Wayne has chosen a single successor to carry on the mantle of the Bat, a man named Jean Paul Valley, a.k.a. Azrael! A man who was once a deadly assassin programed by an evil cult, but is now a man trying to find his true purpose in life. Bruce tries to give Valley his purpose by letting him protect Gotham City, while Bruce recovers. But Valley is more violent and unstable than Bruce was, and is even willing to use lethal force. With Bane terrorizing Gotham, and Valley determined to take it back, who will rule the knight?

It is an outcome that I dare not spoil...

KNIGHTFALL is a story that shows us that even our greatest heroes are vulnerable. Bane was able to break Batman's back so easily in the last volume, because he released all of the Arkham inmates to weaken Batman to the point of exhaustion. I know that some comic book fans would hate that outcome, but personally I think that it gives a sense of realism to comics. Even though Batman is the toughest man in Gotham, he is still human, and all humans have their limits. Bane was able to determine Batman's limits, and use them to his advantage. But that was in the first volume, BROKEN BAT. What really makes the second volume, WHO RULES THE NIGHT, sensational, is that Jean Paul Valley is Bruce Wayne's polar opposite!

The second installment of the Knightfall storyline is chalked full of action but there are some glaring issues with the trade. I still, even after reading it, can't figure out why Jean Paul Valley is given the reigns by Bruce Wayne. It made little sense before I read the story and less now. His turn in the cowl is interesting but oddly placed. Robin and Nightwing's involvement are puzzling. Bane and the Scarecrow really shine here though. Both are scary in their own ways. The art is classic for the time and I really enjoyed it. Overall, an interesting look back to a strange and turbulent time in the life of Batman.

I read this prior to the third Chris Nolan Batman film came out and it set it up brilliantly for me - the film is loosely based on these books
