I think its fair to say that I am not a huge fan of the Legends of the Dark Knight Series. Although a lot of writers that worked on this series, such as Grant Morrison, went on to later write much better Batman comics.This collection contains issues #39-40, 50, and 52-54. The first story is about Bruce Wayne losing his group on reality and takes the more psychological approach. There isnt anything here that hasnt been done before, but it was still an enjoyable read and had a cool cameo of the Mutants from The Dark Knight Returns. Bryan Talbots artwork here is also very good. It has very creepy and unsettling tone that almost gives off a Richard Corben feel. The second story is by far the most forgettable in this collection. Its a story about the first confrontation between Joker and Batman (which was eventually done WAAY better in The Man Who Laughs!!) and is written by Denny ONeil with art by Bret Blevins. The art work is pretty ugly here to, seeing as how Jokers face looks like one of the hyenas from The Lion King. Not really gonna get into more detail on the story because its basically just a rehash of better Batman comics. The third story is about Bruce Wayne traveling to China and plays out like a tribute to 1970s Bruce Lee films. The story is essentially Big Boss meets Batman. Arthur Ransons artwork here isnt bad, but I really did not like the way he drew Batman. It was also kinda weird that Bruce Wayne looked a lot like Christian Bale considering that this was published in 1993. So basically the story is just about Bruce learning meditation, as well as hang gliding, and he beats up some bad guys in the end. Overall kinda boringThe fourth and final story is the real highlight, and the sole reason why I do recommend you pick up this trade. Its a one shot called Sanctum written by Dan Raspler with art by the incredible Mike Mignola. The story itself is not great, but I will say that this is by far the best art that Mignola has done with Batman.
