Format: Paperback
For those who don't know, the No Man's Land titles are the adventures of Batman and his sidekicks in a Gotham City so devastated by an earthquake that it has been declared a federal disaster area. Among other things, this storyline introduced the new Batgirl and Harley Quinn into comic book continuity. This particular volume has Batman newly returned to the city and fighting several of his deadliest foes, including the Penguin, Black Mask, and Two Face. One of the most interesting stories is one in which Detective Montoya of the GCPD (now reduced to the level of a street gang) takes a day off and visits her family, only to find Two Face helping rebuild the community. In a story defying probability, his coin keeps landing good side up, causing Two Face to be ruled by the good side of his personality. There's some other good stuff in here as well, but there's definitely better Batman material available.

...but still one of the best Batman stories around. If Batman: No Man's Land, Vol. 1 built the foundation and established the status quo of NML, volume 2 builds the world on that foundation. The scope of this book is sprawling and epic as it follows each respective member of the Bat-family in his or her mission to help Batman reclaim Gotham from the physical and moral wreckage that has taken over the city. The result is an entertaining reading experience, but one that is also frustratingly scattered and inconsistent at times. In addition, I also get the feeling that this second volume of a four-part trade collection* is missing some important content that might have provided necessary context for a few of the more dramatic scenes (e.g., the confrontation between Batman and Huntress).

Still...narrative and artistic inconsistencies aside, Batman: No Man's Land Vol. 2 represents an important piece of one of the most groundbreaking Batman stories I've ever read. It's well worth your time.

FYI: This review is based upon the April 2012 repackaging of Batman: No Man's Land, Vol. 2.

Three and a half stars.

Back in 1999, DC Comics came out with BATMAN: NO MAN'S LAND, a momentous year-long event which ran thru the Batman-related titles, including that of Nightwing and Robin (although, unfortunately, none of their issues were collected in the five No Man's Land trades). In the wake of the filovirus and the earthquake which ravaged Gotham and its denizens, Congress shockingly withholds federal aid and declares the ruined city unsalvageable. Gotham is evacuated and then cut off from the rest of the world. With Batman nowhere in sight, what's left of Gotham rapidly devolves into a savage, near feudal state, with city blocks carved up into fiefdoms by vicious gangs and Arkham Asylum escapees. This is the worst Gotham has ever been.

One hundred days later, Batman finally shows up.

Okay, this stuff happened almost a decade ago, but, what the heck - minor SPOILERS follow now.

BATMAN: NO MAN'S LAND, Vol. 2 continues Batman's attempts to reclaim the city from the lawless, except that in this volume he suffers a setback. In Volume 1, he'd already drawn the help of Oracle and the Huntress; here, he forms temporary alliances with the Penguin, who ramrods Gotham's largest black market, and Lock-Up, who now controls Blackgate Prison, which Batman uses to hold captured criminals.

On the GCPD end of things, the GCPD Blue Boys (ex-cops who volunteered to stay in Gotham to uphold law & order) attempt to expand their territory by crossing into the Penguin's border. Ex-Commissioner James Gordon strives to hang on to his principles, even as he feels control of his men eroding away. These issues continue to explore Gordon's bitter disenchantment with Batman, who he feels had abandoned Gotham in its direst need.

Format: Paperback
This is the second installment of the newer editions of Batman: No Man's Land.

It includes:
Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight #119-121
Batman: Shadow of the Bat #87-88
Batman #567-568
Detective Comics #734-735
Young Justice in No Man's Land #1
Robin #67
Azrael: Agent of the Bat #56-57
Batman Chronicles #17
Nightwing #35-37
Catwoman #72-74

This volume is just as good as Batman: No Man's Land, Vol. 1, which you should read before reading this. It throws some more villains in, and even more importantly, some more heroes. Nightwing and Robin finally join the ongoing battle, while a new Batgirl debuts. Penguin continues his business, Two-Face looks to expand his territory, Lock-up runs into some trouble, and Scratch fights Azrael. Azrael is one of the best characters in No Man's Land. His issues were the highlight of the first volume, and they maintain their shine here.

The art, though it varies depending on what series each issue comes from, is overall fantastic. it's nice to see a little change from issue to issue, instead of having the same art throughout. For the 500+ pages you get, the price is really good, especially since all the pages are high quality and in color. As a bonus, all of the original covers are in the back of the book.

The only true blemish is a Catwoman story toward the end. It's a little lame. It features Catwoman facing off against a weird amalgamation of SHIELD and the X-men. Batman sent her to steal from them, but they work for Bruce, but for some reason he just can't get the item himself, and you forget that they're actually not a bad team, but a good team, and--I don't really know.
