All hope abandon, ye who enter here. Gotham City: a dark, twisted reflection of urban America. Overcrowded, overbuilt, and overshadowed by a continuous air of menace, this gothic nightmare is a breeding ground for the depraved, the indifferent, and the criminally insane. It's also the object of one man's obsession. Forever scarred as a child from witnessing the brutal murder of his parents, Bruce Wayne has dedicated his life to protecting this city from its many predators, taking a form to inspire hope in the innocent...and fear in the guilty. He is the masked vigilante known as the Batman. With Police Commissioner James Gordon, these two men have always fought to preserve law and order, side-by-side, struggling against a pervasive and relentless criminal element, working together to hold the line. Until now. Leveled by a massive earthquake that has left thousands dead and millions more wounded, Gotham City has been completely cut off from outside aid, transformed into a lawless battleground -- a No Man's Land -- where the survivors are turning against one another, and where the city's protectors are torn by a crisis that may consume them all. Gotham now teeters at the edge of the abyss...and Batman is missing. Critically acclaimed author Greg Rucka brings his talents to DC Comics' most complex and darkly compelling cast of characters. Powerfully written, this epic saga reintroduces and redefines the Batman mythos for the millennium.… (mer)

One of my absolute favorite superhero books ever. It's one of the two Batman novelizations that made me want to start writing fanfic.

I really love the way the author portrays Batman in this - it feels real to me, like this is how Batman was always supposed to be. And although a lot of my friends dislike this version of Barbara Gordon, I really like her a lot in this.

This is one of the rare books I own that I would (and do) read over and over again, it's really just THAT good. ( )

Probably the best superhero novelization I've read. The characterizations were right on or nearly so. ( )

So, this is the novelization of the five volume, many, many issue Batman No Man's Land series. I think, either that or it's a toaster. Sorry, just a bit too much Joker.

The story is simple. A giant (at least for a city unprepared for it) 7.6 earthquake hits Gotham City. Totally destroying big parts of it, letting out the loonies, etc. And instead of using hundreds of millions of dollars to rebuild it, the federal government de-United States' it and makes it into a No Man's Land. Batman and his band of merry vigilantes have to figure out how to maneuver in the new terrain of NML (both physically and mentally).

I was bummed that there was very little Renee Montoya in this novel compared to the comics. But when I started re-reading the Trade Paperbacks I realized that while being a sort of novelization of the comics, it also has a slightly different story in it. This and the TPBs are like complimentary parts of the whole sorta (though I still wish there had been more Renee).

All in all a good novel, based on one of the very great Batman story lines that's been done in the previous twenty years. ( )

Dark. Atmospheric. Chilling. And that was just the ride home on the metro last night. It was made all the more creepy by this gem of a book, 'Batman: No Man's Land'.
I love it when the potential of a character is fulfilled and it has blossomed into what you knew it could be. For too long Batman has been tainted with the shadow of Adam West's portrayal on the 60s tv show and then there were the campy movies of which only 'The Dark Night' offered any redemption. In this novel by Greg Rucka the reader is served up a veritable feast of a book that I never wanted to stop eating from. From the back cover...

"GOTHAM CITY: a dark, twisted reflection of urban America. Overcrowded, overbuilt, and overshadowed by a continuous air of menace, this gothic nightmare is a breeding ground for the depraved, the indifferent, and the criminally insane. It's also the object of one man's obsession. Witness to the brutal murder of his parents, Bruce Wayne has dedicated his life to protecting this city, taking a form to inspire hope in the innocent...and fear in the guilty. He is the masked vigilante known as the Batman.
Now the battlefield has changed. Leveled by a massive earthquake that left thousands dead and millions more wounded, Gotham City has been transformed into a lawless wilderness -- a No Man's Land -- where the survivors are turning against one another, and where the city's protectors are torn by a crisis that may consume them all."

At 468 word crammed, suspense filled, action packed pages 'No Man's Land' is a fairly long read that never once feels like it is dragging. In that sense it needs to be such as Batman himself doesn't appear in the story until about 80 or so pages into the book. In lesser skilled hands that premise could have been the kiss of death for this novel but as is mentioned on the back cover of the book this is a storytelling masterpiece. Filled with an array of supporting characters, such as Oracle, Nightwing, Two-Face and The Joker, each of whom are an integral part of the story this book should carry a health warning as it will have you reading through the pages so fast the friction of all that fast page turning might leave burn marks on your fingers.
If you've ever had any interest in Batman and want a book that is catered to an adult market then you would be a fool to miss this novel. It's an absolute gem that should be required reading for all fiction lovers. ( )
