Batman The Dark Knight: Vol 1. Night Terrors

Fear . . . “lives in every dark shadow — waits around every corner. It can be in two places at once . . . on the path ahead, yet somehow always behind you. Fear hides in every decision, questioning your every move. And it’s your fault. You are the one who gives it life.”

What an opening for a Batman story. It’s iconic. And a great read. I really enjoyed it.

This is the second edition of the title. I had no idea of the previous series but it really didn’t matter. Anyone who knows anything about Batman will be able to follow along with no problems.

In the main story, some of Gotham’s most dangerous criminals have brokenĀ out of Arkham Asylum. To make things even worse, they no longer seem to have any fear. That makes things very dangerous for our favourite caped crusader.

There are two other shorter stories in this collection as well. The strange thing is that the ending, even though a bit of a cliffhanger, didn’t leave me wanting to read more. Not sure why. The opening story was so good.

That being said, if I see Volume 2 at the library, I’d probably still pick it up.
