Novelization of Knightfall storyline.

This is by far my favorite Batman storyline from the comics. I read the children's novelization when I was younger. Then read this one. I have since collected all 100 issues of the complete storyline. If you are a Batman fan, this is a must. I pick up copies used all the time, and give them to friends. Excellent, compelling read.

As Batman, millionaire Bruce Wayne has always protected Gotham City. He's never been beaten. But now, in this breathtaking new novel by Dennis O'Neil one of the most respected creators in comics and the guiding force behind the Batman mythos at DC Comics the Dark Knight faces an enemy unlike any he's ever encountered: Bane. A villian of superhuman strength, cunning, and evil, Bane's already considerable skills are enhanced by injections of Venom, and experimental supersteroid drug that renders him virtually invincible.
Bane's dark plan: to release the dangerous inmates of Arkham Asylum on the city and watch as Batman desperately tries to hunt them all down. Only then, when Batman is at his weakest, does Bane strike. When their dramatic confrontation climaxes, it is Batman who is broken in both body and spirit.

As he recuperates from the crippling injuries that could leave him permanently disabled, Bruce Wayne must face the grim truth: With Bane declaring war on Gotham City, a new Batman must be found to assume to role of the Dark Knight. But is Wayne's dark apprentice, Jean Paul Valley a young vigilante known as Azrael worthy of wearing the mantle of the Bat? Even more important, is Gotham ready for this new Batman and his harsh brand of lethal justice? And what will happen when Bruce Wayne decides to reclaim Gotham City and his role as Batman?

I would definitely have to rate this in the top 3 of best comic book novelizations. The story is powerful and gripping. Batman is defeated and has his back broken. A new person steps up and takes the mantle of the Bat. Will Gotham be the same??

This is a great read if you like Batman. Book is similar in story to the new Batman movie "BATMAN BEGINS".
