Batman The Dark Knight: Knight Terrors begins with a mass breakout of Arkham which sees the Caped Crusader doing battle with many of his greatest enemies, except they seem all jacked up and filled with rage. First up is Two Face, followed by Clayface, and many others, all of whom are followed up with a mysterious sighting of the White Rabbit, a woman dressed like a Playboy bunny.
The mystery that Batman has to solve (What is this mysterious toxin? Who is making it? For what purpose? Who is the White Rabbit?) is mediocre at best and seems like a run-of-the-mill Batman mystery. The Snyder Batman series and the Batman and Robin series are far superior, as is Detective Comics, to this often abysmal series. Having said that, I never was truly bored with it, and I enjoyed getting to see a bevy of heavy hitters in Batman’s rogues gallery.
The art is Batman grittiness and violence at it’s best and if you enjoyed the darkness and sadistic-ness of Detective Comics then you should enjoy Batman The Dark Knight. David Finch just falls short in every area that Tony Daniel succeeded in in his Detective Comics and, as a result, it feels like Detective Comics Jr. or something.
All in all, this is my least favorite of the Batman lines and I may not continue with it.
