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.......?

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.

At first I was scared No Mans Land was a horrible idea. Turns out to be one of Batmans best stories. This is a collection of many comics from that story. Gotham is in shambles from an earthquake but Batman and his friends still have to fight all the lunatics. In this he faces Bane mostly but Two-Face, Killer Kroc, Zasz, and many others show up. Including Lex Luthor at the end. Superman also shows to try and help.

The fourth volume of the epic No Man's Land crossover really moves things along. While Superman does stop by, and slows things down, the book moves at a good speed which the crossover needed. Relationships are huge part of the these books. Batman and Commissioner Gordon's relationship is attended to with a somewhat surprising result. Also, the strange dynamic between Two-Face and Rene Montoya is explored. The art, for the most part was very good, especially by Mike Deodato. The Greg Rucka penned chapters were the strongest. Overall, a very good book.

This book was in perfect condition. I bought this for my boyfriend and when I opened it in the mail I was very happy with the quality the book was in. It was spotless and smelled brand spanking new. I was not expecting this to come until next week but I am VERY happy that it came today. SUPER FAST SHIPPING from Greg Rucka. Thank you so much for completing my Christmas gift list and my boyfriends Batman comic collection. XOXO
