    1. This series certainly finished strong.Not that it was really all that necessary, I did enjoy the flashback in the beginning. An attempt to better fill in some backstory involving with Huntress and Batman's absence was appreciated.A lot happens in this fifth and final volume but it never feels rushed or convoluted. The pacing is excellent and in all 5 volumes, this is easily the strongest. While I had a small problem with the way Lex Luthor was used, he was sorely needed in an attempt to bring No [...]


    2. And so we come to the end of (what is in my opinion) the worst Batman event book ever, No Man’s Land, Volume 5. No Man’s Land’s basic setup fails to convince me so throughout the series I’ve never really believed any of this could happen anyway: a massive earthquake destroys Gotham so the US Government abandons it, leaving the remaining citizens to fend for themselves for over a year. I know Bush 2 and FEMA abandoned those devastated by Katrina for a week but they ended up helping those [...]


    3. Highly satisfying conclusion to a great arc. The inclusion of Luthor was a genius idea, and while I would have liked to see more of the faceoff between LexCorp and Wayne Enterprises, his attempt to buy Gotham was exactly how you'd expect him to respond to the No Man's Land situation.It was also nice to explore the immediate aftermath of Cataclysm, finally seeing what Bruce Wayne was up to and why Huntress became Batgirl (and the new mask, which previously just looked cool, actually makes a whole [...]


    4. Such epic moments. All of No Man's Land came together in this book for an epic conclusion that just makes my love for Batman and his universe that much stronger. The complexity of all the relationships alone is so fascinating that I just want to read more and more and watch them all evolve without the backdrop of surviving a horrific earthquake.


    5. Good finish to a riveting series. You do need your hankies though, because the Joker reminds us all why he's the worst villain in the Batman world.


    6. The Joker is evil. I'm still in awe, I thought Two-Face was bad in Vol 3 and 4 but this is another level of evil. A great read for any Bat fans.



    7. So, apparently, "No Man's Land" is trying to go out on a Joker crescendo, but what it really does is just fall flat.


    8. Below this review is the review for the first book--don't read this one if you haven't started yet.Book five culminates in the Joker's plot to get attention and the derailment of Lex Luthor's plan to take over Gotham. The Joker's plan, while ending brutally, didn't make much sense to me and I felt maybe the writers were relying on the old "he's crazy so we don't need a reason" in order to get the murder they wanted out of it.The defeat of LUthor was very anti-climatic--still, you have to see how [...]


    9. I'm always somewhat conflicted regarding No Man's Land. Why?Well, the situation we're dealing with here - Gotham City being abandoned and declared a No Man's Land after it's been almost completely destroyed by an earthquake - is extremely contrived, and it always takes me a bit to get over that (and yes, even though the chapters in which Superman tries to help do make their point, it's also very hard to believe the JLA and everybody else don't just repair everything right away). But once you get [...]


    10. I wanted a lot more Clark Kent and Superman. A lot more. Wishful thinking on my behalf. At the very least, I am happy that he was used as an effective foil throughout the second half of the series. This was an overall satisfying conclusion to a trying series that distinguished itself for its isolation and sui generis of Gotham City. That was definitely apparent. No Man's Land was a salient title and theme throughout the series. That is uninteresting to me in light of the more important and visib [...]


    11. So here it is the completion of the series and I must admit (and I guess for the last time in this series) I show my naivety in that characters from one pantheon appears in another - its hard not to explain the twist without both ruining the series and the book but sufficient to say that the twist adds an extra dimension to the story. I will admit that even though I suspect the events in this series will never be referred to again - unlike others that have happened (which have been referred to i [...]


    12. Okay, this book contains why the Batman comic is the absolute best and is simultaneously the most frustrating comic to follow.Batman has the worst (best) villains and they've been on display throughout this series. I was honestly expecting the ending to fizzle but when the Joker threw the baby and then shot Sarah Gordon, my jaw dropped in utter shock. Now, the utterly frustrating part is Batman's unnerving devotion to the "I-Will-Not-Kill" mentality yet he continues to allow The Joker to murder [...]


    13. How do you wrap up a year of No Man's Land? Simply pute Joker. While the events from No Man's Land were felt for months after this final collection of the event was so impactful. Whether its what the Joker does, doesn't do, or threatens to do, he is the catalyst for so much of what happens. Add that to Lex Luthor's machinations, Bane, and the Bat family reuniting completely and you get a fantastic book. My only problem with the book was the art in certain chapters by Damion Scott, which was far [...]


    14. The best part of this final volume is not the tragic ending, but the nice prequel story in which comes to show how Huntress became Batgirl. They even explain the costume design in full detail, with good artwork.The only bad thin about this volume is that Damion Scott does the art for the final half and it takes away a bit of the power, since the art from the first half is realistic and strong.A fine ending for the NML saga.


    15. A few times I was torn between rating this 4 stars and 3. I ended up rating it 3 stars, because there were just more blah, boring parts than there were of any substance. There were some really thrilling parts near the mid end, but it wasn't enough to push my rating to 4. Being the finale of this story I felt that it should have been great through the whole volume.


    16. For what this story was, it was pretty damn enjoyable. The only thing holding this collection back was that the story seems to stop on a dime. Also, the way the entire 5 volumes were collected, I couldn't help but feel like a few key issues were left out, because a few of the plot threads were hard to follow. Still, as good as any character centric event I've ever read.


    17. Yeah. It's still a fineass story arc, & well worth any complaints regarding the first 4 volumes just to make it out alive. I'm interested to see what the new "complete" editions bring to the table. Christ, that single issue of Black Canary that was omitted in the original trades is probably a gamechangerTAKE MORE OF MY MONEY DC! MY COMPULSIVE FANGIRLITUDE COMPELS ME!!! Aaaaannnndt.


    18. No hardcore Batman snob will place this in their top 10 Batman series, BUT they will tell you it's pretty damn good (and if they don't, you probably shouldn't hang out with them). Myself, I was obsessed with this series. I fell in love with all the characters (Batman doesn't play a huge role here) and freaked out if I finished one volume without having the next.


    19. A pretty intense ending to the No Man's Land arc. Although killing a main character is always compelling, I wish there was more to the "important death". It seems the killing has no real weight, and that's quite a bit depressing.


    20. 3.5 stars. Another thrilling tale with the Caped Crusader. Joker shows up for more mayhem, mischief and murder - you never know what he will do next. There appear to be some gaps where a crossover with other books didn't make the cut for the final book.




    21. Of course Lex Luthor is the overarching villain of the piece. The theme is the little guy getting shafted.




    22. Poor Jim! That poor man's family is so screwed up because of the Joker. This also has a little romance between Nightwing and Huntress that threw me off. I have no idea how that came about.


    23. And so concludes No Man's Land. Great collection of stories, even the art that every now and then was a bit wobbly, did not bother. High entertainment from Greg Rucka.
