I'm not going to be able to add anything that any of the other of the thousands of reviews have already said. But this is clearly one of the best story arcs in the history of Batman.
Highly recommended for everyone! ( )

Graphic novel collections do no favours to the likes of Jeph Loeb’s epic, which built mystery and tension over a year’s worth of comics. Here the reading experience is somewhat compressed, unless the reader has the restraint to delay the experience as it originally worked, so there’s no hanging on for the answers. It’s not a particularly original conceit, with a shadowy adversary manipulating some of Batman’s more well known friends and foes to wear him down (see the Knightfall storyline as another example), but it works well enough and the villain’s plan is ingenious (if probably overcomplicated).

After reading the mess that was "A Death In The Family" I'm really enjoyed this... gorgerous art, decent colouring, and a good (not great, but solid enough) plot. Pacing went to pot in the final issues though, and I got tired of the way female characters get conveniently pausing in pin-up poses. ( )

I figured out the one guy who was involved in it by the second issue but I didn't see the last one coming. ( )

Gorgeous artwork (Jim Lee is pretty unbeatable when he's on his game) but the story doesn't feel as fresh or interesting as the last Batman work by Loeb I read, The Long Hallowe'en. This feels like a polished up retread of the well worn Batman detective stories, which is fine but the story just doesn't hold up for me. Luckily, the character interactions are much more interesting, although no villain is really given enough page time to truly make a deep impact, and I'm a sucker for some sharp Batman/Catwoman dialogue. It's a damn enjoyable piece of work but not an instant classic. ( )
