Batman Knightfall is the first ever Batman event made and DC wanted to make one hell of an impact on that notion. Coming in the middle at the time of the famous Death of Superman story (specifically World Without Superman arc), Knightfall was unleashed to the masses that almost lasted 2 years worth. The event is made up of 3 made sections of the event, with sub-sections. Batman Knightfall the 1st main section, with sub-sections "Broken Bat" and "Who Rules the Night". Batman Knightquest is the 2nd main section, with sub-sections "The Crusade" and "The Search". And finally the last section Knightsend, with the sub-sections "Knightsend Aftermath", "Prodigal", and "Troika". In all 15 years or so, DC has had various reprints of Knightfall and Knightsend, with numerous issues being exempted in-between all the reprints. One of which being the "Prodigal" son trade (which is a small fortune), the "troika" arc, and most famous arc missing every issue: Knightquest. That's about to change.Read more ›
The crossover was mostly confined to issues of Batman and Detective Comics, and many of the creators involved are longtime Batman veterans. Chuck Dixon and Doug Moench, usually reliable writers, keep things tightly plotted and briskly paced, and a massive team of artists including Graham Nolan and Jim Aparo give Knightfall the epic feel it deserves. Fans will appreciate the brief appearances in this volume by Oracle, the Huntress, and Anarky, as well as a Joker/Scarecrow team-up and fresh takes on the Ventriloquist and the Riddler. There's a lot to like in this story. However, once Azrael becomes Batman. . . The character is basically a checklist of early 90s antihero character traits, complete with a bad attitude, an armored costume full of pouches, and cringeworthy witty banter. (When Bane says that Gotham City is in his pocket, Azrael retorts with "Prepare to get mugged!Read more ›
So to recap: 1) Batman: Sword of Azrael. 2) Knightfall Vol. 1 (first story only), Insert bookmark, and 3)read Batman #488, 489 & 490. 4) Resume Knightfall Vol 1.
488 - 490 can all be found here on Amazon but 489 is a little pricy for some reason. Apparenty there is something collectible about it. I don't know if there are variant covers or what but you can find issues in good condition for $6 or $7 if you dont want the collectible version.
Everything you need to know about the collection is contained on the other reviews. No much I can say about the content, except that is wonderul!
Coolest thing to do is to really collect Knightfall in it's entirity. Volume 1 is the perfect start.
Why do I take 1 star off? Because of the paper quality.
I received my copy today, and although I was very pleased with the lenght and content, the paper left me cold. Is the exact (or almost the same) paper quality as the old editions.
I honestly thought that the newspaper paper wasn't used anymore. Man! I wanted to take two stars out because of that, but I guess the good is bigger than the not-so-good.
