Batman – The Dark Knight Rises – Knightfall – 497

The final installment of Nolan’s Batman trilogy “The Dark Knight Rises” is coming soon in 2012. Bane has been cast in this film as the main villian (with a little Catwoman thrown in for good measure). I thought it was worth to go back a bit to the most iconic issue in the Knightfall saga, Batman 497. Bane was a villian introduced who could handle Batman hand to hand but first chose to wear him down by freeing all the villians from Arkham, before finally confronting a weary Batman and breaking his back. Enjoy a flashback to some very memorable artwork from the 1993 issue.

I love the works of Kelley Jones on Batman. He gives Batman an almost demonic but gothic feel.
