This is the greatest book that I have ever read!This book made me become a hard-core Batman-Fan!!!!!!OMG, words cannot describe this books' perfection...wait, yes it can!I really loved how Rucka didn't just frame it on Batman, but entire community of No Man's Land.The fact that all the greatest batman villians were lose and especially insane, made their actions become intertwined. for them, it was either partnerships, or back-stabbings, this book had so many different viewpoints that you could understand EVERYTHING that was happening, or what the narrating characters were feeling. I liked very much the special touch Rucka put in with the Oracle's Journal. I was Barbara's input that I liked reading the most because her theories always left you puzzled.But the strange thing on my part was that I quite enjoyed the beginning.....the absece of Batman.......?

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Simon on April 19, 2004
Format: Paperback
(Note: This is a review for No Man's Land Vol. 4. Amazon groups all five volumes and the novelization as one product.)
After stumbling a bit in volumes 2 and 3, No Man's Land gets back on track with volume 4. The big draw here is Bane, who has been sent to Gotham by a mysterious backer for purposes unknown.
And really, that turns out to be the weakest part of the volume. The opening chapter with Bane's return is just horribly written, with Batman and Bane talking way too much. The other parts, where Bane mows a path through downtown Gotham, isn't that interesting to read and only builds up to a small plot point.
However, the other chapters in the book completely make up for that let-down. Devin Grayson returns to pen two amazing stories, one involving Leslie Tompkins and the MASH sector, and the other featuring Clark Kent visitng NML. Dale Eaglesham also returns as artist, and draws a great Billy Pettit who is looking more crazed than ever. The Two-Face/Montoya/Gordon story also comes to head, as Two-Face puts Gordon on trial for war crimes. It's one of the best arcs of No Man's Land, and bring this subplot full circle. After that, Gordon and Batman finally have their long-awaited chat. Then it's simply a matter or repositioning everyone for the final volume, and finding out who the mysterious outside interest is.
If I have one complaint, it's that DC didn't bother to include the Nightwing arc of NML in these volumes. In volume 3, he was assigned to retake Blackgate Prison. Here he's already done it. I've heard Nightwing's adventure in Blackgate was pretty good, and it's unfortunate it didn't make the cut.
If you've read the other 3 volumes, continue reading. Volume 4 does a great job of continuing this major Batman crossover arc.

It seems this storyline just goes on and on without any real ending in sight. Batman is still battling away and hasn't really made a dent in 4 books. The bad guys are still on the loose, the gangs still run the city, no matter what he does nothing really changes. And that's what's so frustrating about "No Man's Land", there doesn't seem to be any purpose or direction, it's just a lot of fight scenes with little or no substance, just a lot of ordinary people sitting around complaining that their government abandoned them - which they did, and that has never made any sense to me. Why would the US government abandon Gotham after an earthquake? Did they abandon New Orleans after Katrina (some might say yes, Spike Lee for example, but that's another matter)?

Anyway, the series drones on in its unremitting nonsense. Bane appears and he and Batman battle, Zsasz causes tension in a refugee hospital where Killer Croc shows up, Superman shows up again to no avail, and Two Face does some pointless posturing.

It's a dull book, like the other two before it, with nothing particularly interesting happening either way. I've given this series 4 books, that there is more means little to me as I'm stopping it here. "No Man's Land" is a series that just goes on and on and isn't much more than assorted fight scenes and a nonsensical setup. Fans only, the casual comics reader will wonder why DC bothered.

Format: Paperback
This book continues the development of the story based on Gotham City being the victim of a massive earthquake and then being abandoned by the federal government. The population was told to evacuate and then all entrances and exits sealed off. Gotham City has degenerated into a series of enclaves ruled largely by vicious gangs, some under the control of super criminals such as the Joker, Two-Face and Penguin, but others are controlled by forces for good such as Police Commissioner Gordon. Batman, in one of his more Dark Knight incarnations, also decided to stay and attempt to save the city.
For reasons that Batman and his allies do not understand, someone hired a mercenary to destroy the city hall of records and has stockpiled billions of dollars of construction material in the city. The battles for control of the city continue, when they are in the way or an annoyance, people are killed. The story is captivating, once I started reading I had to tear myself away in order to do the biological necessities. The artwork, dialog and suspense are intense as people make their peace in order to prepare for war.
