  • Good

    By Kole sibs
    Its really bloated. Too many villains getting their storylines while Bane's story is just spinning wheels. But its a great read
  • A classic Batman story

    By T-1000
    In my initial review, I wrote that the second half of the story wasn't as good as the first and gave it a B+. However, my opinion has since changed and I now give it an A.
