Overview

The epic story of Batman and Bane starts here.

Gotham City is home to a riot of deadly criminals. The Joker, Poison Ivy, the Mad Hatter and Killer Croc have all done their best to bring anarchy to the city's streets, back alleys and sewers. Thankfully, Gotham is also home to the Batman. Throughout the years, he's been able to keep his infamous rogues gallery in check.

But now, lurking at the end of this seemingly endless gauntlet of foes, emerges the deadliest menace of all—a wild berserker known as Bane. It is his destiny to destroy Batman and take control of Gotham City.

Batman: Prelude to Knightfall kicks off an ambitious nine-volume saga that revisits Batman's memorable and life-changing battle with Bane. Collects Batman: Vengeance of Bane #1, Batman #484-491 and Detective Comics #654-658.

About the Author

Chuck Dixon's resume includes thousands of scripts for iconic characters like Batman, Superman, Green Lantern, Iron Man, the Punisher, the Simpsons, Spongebob Squarepants, G.I. Joe and many others. He is (along with artist Graham Nolan) the creator of the Batman villain Bane, the first permanent addition to the Dark Knight's rogues gallery in forty years, and for which he won 1993's Wizard Fan Award for best new character. His graphic novel adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkein's The Hobbit is a perennial bestseller worldwide. His unprecedented 100 issue run on DC Comics' Robin is considered to be a classic in the comics medium. Chuck's contributions to Marvel Comics' The Punisher are widely acknowledged as integral to that character's development.
