I remember recieving my copy inside a dress box. Apart from this it also had 5 more books; and those were the first books my life.

No Man's Land holds a very special place for me with its dystopian take on a Gotham ran by various gangs made up of Batman's baddies. A washed up Gordon and the Dark Knight himself work on cleaning the streets and keeping the already derelict city in order - when order does not exist.

This one was not as good as some of the other batman books I have read. However as superheros are a guilty pleasure, I still enjoyed it. Batman must relearn how to function in Gotham City after a giant earthquake levels the city and the national government declares it a No Mans Land.

I don't think this is the No Man's Land that my friend recommended to me. It lacked depth and was extremely juvenile, even for a young adult book. I tried to imagine the writing as if it were in a comic book, but even then, it was disappointing and far too simplistic and childish.

I loved the book. I enjoy the characters within comic books but have a hard time with the medium so when I find books with the characters I get super excited!

This book was intresting. Batman to me in this book seemed cold and disconnected in this book. And I have never really pictured Batman so disconnected. But overall this book was so so.

While the premise was interesting in the end the story was either dragging on to long or just pointless at times.
