it was amazing

I'm stunned by how good this was. I've been reading a bunch of Batman lately to get ready for Dark Knight Rises and this was probably my favorite, tied with Long Halloween. I liked it better than Year One, Killing Joke and Dark Knight Returns.

There is some stuff that it seems got left out. I would've loved to see Killer Croc get beat by Bane, but it's not a huge deal.

The plot-line with Ventriloquist is awesome, and Scarecrow's effort at domination also blew me away. I love Scarecrow.

Azrael is a killer and the costume he designs looks incredible.

The origin of Bane is epic in a Count of Monte Cristo heart-wrenching sort of way.

I can't wait to read the next two installments.
