DC finally makes a serious edition of the Batman: No Man's Land saga, publishing the whole epic, with all the main issues and tie-ins in a series of TPBs.

The story is great, both in its scope and execution, featuring an excellent opening story arc written by Bob Gale (screenwriter of the Back To The Future trilogy) and the incredible debut of Greg Rucka in the Batman mythos, who will be the main writer of the No Man's Land saga to its end.

This book edition is great, and a true bargain considering it's a 500 plus pages softcover for just 29.99 (less than 20 bucks with Amazon's discount). It was a GREAT surprise to notice that the paper stock used by DC for this edition is considerably better than the cheap lightweight paper stock they use for most of their TPBs editions (I own many GL and Batman TPBs and the difference is remarkable). The binding is glued but is really solid, so you won't have spine issues.

The book includes:
- Batman: No Man's Land #1
- Batman #563-566
- Detective Comics #730-733
- Batman: Shadow Of The Bat #83-86
- Batman: Legends Of The Dark Knigh #116-118
- Azrael: Agent Of The Bat #51-55
- Batman Chronicles #16

I have only 2 complaints about the book: many of the Azrael pages feature low or mid quality reproduction, it seems that those pages were scanned. But this only happens with the Azrael issues, the rest of the comic books are perfectly reproduced. And the cover gallery misses Batman 563 cover by Scott Campbell, lets hope they include it in Vol.2.

Another thing to note is that the "Road To No Man's Land" issues are NOT included. It would be great if DCs publishes a "Volume 0" featuring them after they complete this series, but don't worry, because No Man's Land reads just fine without them.

But all in all I'm extremely happy with this edition. This product features a SUPERB price/quality relationship and is truly deserving of its 5 stars.

I just bought it, haven't read it yet, but I want to make clear NOW that this is the NEW paperback edition, which have been followed by a 2nd, 3rd and 4th.

Before this new edition the No Man's Land saga was published in 5 smaller paperbacks with only the core storyline. These NEW editions are the complete story. So make sure which one you're gonna buy. The NEW paperbacks have some reviews under them of the OLD paperbacks.

It's a bit confusing, but I hope I made everything clear.

Hello fellow comic book fans!

I would like to extend to you a recommendation to buy this book. To tell you a bit about myself. I have had a very brief history with comics. I have only been into super-heroes and serious reading for about 4 months now, but have had quite extensive experience with Batman in the past through the many movies, animated series, and animated direct-to-DVD releases. Batman books I have read include: Dark Knight Returns, Dark Victory, Long Halloween, The Killing Joke, Knightfall Vol. 1-3, Year One, and Joker. Of course now I have read No Man's Land Vol. 1. So this is my basic piece on the book. It's not for beginners, I'll tell you three basic reasons why before I go into any detail. This book exposes the reader to a large amount of characters, which might be good or bad for a beginner, I know, but I'll also perhaps elaborate with the following reasons. There are many writers and artists who worked on this story, so there are a few character inconsistencies. Also, there are many stories that just plain don't star Batman. There are huge chunks of the book that heavily feature Jim Gordon, Huntress, and even just random survivors. So perhaps one should familiarize themselves with the setting of Gotham a bit more, as this is more a book about Gotham than it is about Batman.

Other people have gone into what issues this collects, so I won't repeat what they have said in any detail. I will, however, tell you the amount of content in this book is well worth $30. I've also noticed people aren't mentioning the difference between the old printings and the new in any detail. The 5 original TPBs allegedly (haven't read them) collect only 40 of the actual 80 issues printed for this event.

7 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Sam Quixote TOP 1000 REVIEWER on February 16, 2012
Format: Paperback
A major earthquake hits Gotham (chronicled in "Cataclysm") and the US Government takes the unprecedented (not to mention highly unlikely) approach to the disaster by quarantining the city and annexing it from the USA - the result? No Man's Land.

The plot is familiar to those who've played the recent "Arkham City" game which takes a similar approach though it only segregates part of Gotham rather than the entirety of it. But the supervillains of Arkham roam Gotham freely now and recruit gangs which fight for territories of Gotham like in "Arkham City".

If you can get past the improbability of the scenario - I mean it would be like the US abandoning New Orleans after Katrina - then you're in store for a helluva first book. Bob "Back to the Future" Gale does a fine job of writing the first story arc in this massive series, setting the stage for what is to come. He establishes the wasteland Gotham becomes and the lawless, terrifying place it descends to without regular food or supplies coming through. He introduces the mysterious figure of Batgirl and doesn't introduce the Batman until the very end, focusing instead on the rival gangs run by Penguin and the other rogues, Barbara Gordon, who creates a new network of information without the aid of computers, and the fight back to restore the city led by Commissioner Gordon.

The second story arc is less impressive as the Batman plays a big part in it and he always overcomes any obstacles, but it's interesting to see Scarecrow appear and try to create chaos out of a fragile peace created by a couple of Christian priests. Huntress also shows that she's going to play a large role in this series.
