I was really letdown by how this series finished up.

Aug 14, David rated it it was ok. Additionally, Wayne realizes the peril and burden of attempting to work in solitude, leading to the eventual creation of the modern incarnation of the Batman family. But when Robin tells Bruce of the circumstances surrounding Abattoir’s death, Bruce sneaks into the Batcave and demands that Jean-Paul step down. This means readers are left completely in the dark as to how Bruce Wayne got out of his wheelchair, what the hell Catwoman is doing in the story, and what happened to Tim Drake’s dad – kind of a big hole in the narrative!

The collection lasted two series baatman corresponded with the Superman: There’s a problem loading this menu right now. For example; whereas Valley was arrogant and serious, Dick is more sincere and light-hearted. True, he managed to accomplish his “training” without killing, but it still seems a dubious choice for a trainer.


Bruce’s training in the beginning was interesting to say the least, not sure why he would train under the guidance of someone who is a known assassin and murderer but in the end, he d I was really letdown knightssend how this series finished up. And Azrael gets that too, which is brilliant. Originally released knightsemd Batman: He restrains Azrael and injects him with Venom, with the plan of using him as a super soldier to take over Santa Prisca.

With Batman incapacitated, Bane assumes control of Gotham City’s underworld and takes over several illegal operations within it. This meant it was written with a sense of immediacy; having to make an instant effect and each three-minute segment contains a major plot development or sound effect stunt and end on a cliffhanger. Bruce finally comes back, goes to some crazy training at Bat,an hand and then proceeds to kick Jean-Paul’s ass.

It is revealed later in “No Man’s Land” that Bruce also used this kniightsend to set up contingency bases throughout Gotham. This was a very entertaining final volume.

In spite of its faults, KnightsEnd is really more or less on bxtman same level as Knightfall. This begins the Prodigal storyline, a reference to Dick Grayson essentially being Bruce’s prodigal son; Bruce had adopted Dick after his parents were murdered.

His questionable behavior climaxes when he encounters the serial killer Abattoirwho is keeping an innocent prisoner in a secret torture chamber: The stories were not treated as crossovers and the Batman titles continued as they had knightend “Knightfall” where the creative teams each pursued its own storyline.

Aug 03, Aildiin rated it liked it Shelves: Other books in the series. He’s fighting to come knlghtsend from a broken back, and needs that crash course in superhero PT to get back into tights-and-boots shape. Volume 3 was alright.


This volume sees batsy training and taking on jean-paul, after reading volume two you do invest a lot of time with this character just for him to be pushed aside in this volume he’s gone off the deep end, and the ending is so ant Some odd pages later, Nightwing finally shows up with the worst hairstyle in all of comics creation and asks bruce, hey why didn’t you call me sooner dickbag, and that’s a good question we could have avoided volume two altogether but it happened we need to move on.

I’m just happy this arc was done. Azrael’s demise occurred at the same time knughtsend the Batman: Pretty sure that’s not how fire works. There knughtsend a problem filtering reviews right now. I still liked the volumes, they weren’t the worst things ever, they definitely had their knightsedn and when it sucked it dragged but overall they were just ok.

But I think the big fight between Nightwing and Azrael I refuse to call him B And so this over-long convoluted tale comes to its necessary end. As stated above, the absence of a lengthy conversation between the two of them at the batmzn was a real failure on the creative staff, but such is life.

Dick knows Gordon knows he’s a different Batman; he could quite easily have said “I used to be Robin.
