While the second volume Knightquest is just okay (very influenced by the styles of the time) and the final volume Knightsend is frankly kind of an anti-climax in my opinion, Knightfall is nearly perfect. Just as much about the rise and fall of Bane as it is about the breaking of the Bat, the collection is a must-read for Batman fans and anyone interested in this classic villain. Also keep in mind the second and third volumes become more about Azrael's growing madness and time as the Batman than it is about Bane whose role pretty much ends with this volume. Also, it is a thick read so at under twenty bucks it is a solid deal.
It's a fairly sizable collection- unlike previous comic collections which mark themselves as the first "volume" and only have a couple hundred pages the most, this one clocks in at over 600 pages. I was worried at first that this was purely a case of quantity over quality, but the issues collected within are great, and even the filler is bearable. For the most part, a newcomer to the Batman series can pick up the beginning of Knightfall and understand the story quickly as it doesn't rely on previous story arcs all that much (just know Batman is still bummed out about the death of the previous Robin, Jason Todd). It also adds some interesting stories set within the world, including two that follow Scarecrow and Anarky. It also includes the origin story on Bane that was published afterwards, which I think is a good way to add some further depth to Bane.
The art, like many comics, varies depending on which issue is read, so it might be jarring for some (especially in the Shadow of the Bat Scarecrow special). Overall the quality to me was good for all of the artists involved, and I think is a good highlight of how varied art can be in the American comics scene.
The only complaint I would have about this collection, having read Knightfall for the first time in my life, is that the story references a prior confrontation with Bane by both Jean-Paul and Killer Croc. I found myself trying to flip around the volume looking for this, but I guess these were printed before the Knightfall arc was formally started. The paper quality leaves something to be desired, so be careful handling it.
Highly recommended from me, especially if Amazon has it marked down in price.
The series itself is still good after all these years. This is definitely one of the best story lines ever written for Batman comics, in my opinion. Though, reading these now, at the age of 34, I have come to a conclusion: Bane is a wuss. I know, he seems tough, but how tough is he? After reading his origin story, he comes off looking like one of the toughest people on the planet. He survives the seemingly unsurvivable and comes out stronger for it. Plus, his venom steroid really enhances his natural strength. However, upon coming to Gotham, he won't even face Batman in a fair fight. He hatches this seemingly brilliant plan to weaken Batman by releasing the wackos from Arkham, knowing that Batman will run himself ragged hunting them down, thereby weakening him for the strike. But, the plan isn't even all that brilliant. I mean, how difficult is it to spring and arm some crazies and then sit back and rest while Batman runs all over hunting them down? All it takes is some explosives and guns, any idiot can get those. Then he proceeds to wait (comfortably) until Batman is almost too weak to stand or even think and then he strikes. While he's "fighting" (pulverizing) Batman, he keeps spouting off about how Batman is no match for him and how he's superior. But, is he really? After all, you're talking about someone who is apparently too much of a wimp to fight Batman in a fair fight, so he had to "weaken" him first. If he's so tough, why not face Batman at his prime? Because he'd lose, that's why. Batman has faced opponents physically superior to him in the past and won, and Bane knew this. Plus, Batman has years of training and experience, including dozens of fighting techniques, Ninja training and years of study. Meanwhile, Bane is a one-trick pony. He injects some Venom, gets really strong, beats up stuff. He has no formal fight training, a weakness that Batman could easily exploit. The other weakness he could exploit was Bane's dependency on Venom. (even Killer Croc figured that one out) So, likely, Bane knew he couldn't really take Batman in his prime, so he had to cheat and stack the deck. Hence, he's a wuss.
Though, even after realizing all of that, I still enjoyed reading this again. It's still a great story arc. The book itself seems to be nicely bound and printed on quality paper, despite some peoples' claims that DC's bindings and paper have gone downhill (not necessarily on this, but I've seen that complaint on some of their other recent collections.)
