In preparation for the film, I've been reading Batman's 'Knightfall' series, which features a major feud between Bane and Batman, including a certain infamous back-breaking scene. So far, I've just read the 'Broken Bat' arc, but the series is made up of many arcs which crossover through the entire DC comics universe. I'll be seeing the movie on Monday, so keep an eye out for my review of that.
Today, I'll post my favourite images from the 'Broken Bat' arc. It's safe to assume (for anything entertainment-related that I post) that this will contain spoilers. This is your only warning!
I am absolutely upset and saddened about the massacre that took place at the midnight Dark Knight Rises screening in Colorado, but I'll share my feelings about this horrific event another day.
