A Quick Tip by Trekscribbler

While breathtaking in scope, the entire saga of KNIGHTFALL feels like one elongated retread of a work done far superior elsewhere. Many of the events occuring throughout the year-long tale are irrelevant to the overall impact of the story. While it was interesting to see another person wear the mantle of the Bat for a time, the urbanized Batman grew cliched rather quickly in his vicious responses to Bat's Rogues Gallery of criminals. That and the noticeable absense of Nightwing from the majority of the adventures leaves many moments with an overwhelming sense of 'ho hum.' Still, the saga climaxes with little fisticuffs, a nice irony in transforming Bruce Wayne back into the part-detective, part-vigilante that occupies his very soul.
