Batman: No Man's Land (2 of 2)

Ages 13+
Gotham City: a dark, twisted reflection of urban America. Overcrowded, overbuilt and overshadowed by a continuous air of menace, this gothic nightmare is a breeding ground for the depraved, the indifferent and the criminally insane. It's also the object of one man's obsession. Forever scarred as a child from witnessing the brutal murder of his parents, Bruce Wayne has dedicated his life to protecting this city from its many predators, taking a form to inspire hope in the innocent...and fear in the guilty. He is the masked vigilante known as the Batman.

With Police Commissioner James Gordon, these two men have always fought to preserve law and order, side-by-side, struggling against a pervasive and relentless criminal element, working together to hold the line.Until now.

Leveled by a massive earthquake that has left thousands dead and millions more wounded, Gotham City has been completely cut off from outside aid, transformed into a lawless battleground -- a No Man's Land -- where the survivors are turning against one another and where the city's protectors are torn by a crisis that may consume them all.

Gotham now teeters at the edge of the abyss...and Batman is missing.

Great conclusion by William (Posted on 2/20/2019)
This really is a classic story and i love how GA adapted it. Could not recommend this more.
Batman: No Man's Land 2 of 2 by Theresa (Posted on 12/17/2018)
Book 2 drew me straight into the story just as much as the first book. I am a huge Batman man fan and I was not disappointed by this graphic audio story. Kept me captured through out the story.I cannot wait for more Batman after reading this one.
A Great and Sad Ending to this 2 part Series by Stephen (Posted on 10/30/2018)
The 2nd part of Batman: No Man's Land which is adapted from the 2000 novel By Greg Rucka (who also wrote some of comics in this crossover story-arc) which is based on 1999 Batman Crossover Story-Arc is a mostly solid conclusion to 2 part GA adaption of series respectfully thou is ending is sad, it does have great voice acting, music, sound effects as well as generally good story as well
Great by Jason (Posted on 8/25/2018)
Not much to say about this one. If you got through the first part and really enjoyed it it finishes the story in a good way. Both parts are pretty accurate to the story it's based off of and done very well. There is more action and more Batman in this part than the first part (he was missing for a good chunk of the first part). This (and the first part) are one of my favorite stories that Graphic Audio has done. The performance was good (voice acting, sound effects, and music)
The shattering conclusion by ZJ (Posted on 8/12/2018)
This second part of No Man’s Land benefits from beginning farther into the rising action of the story. Because so much of the setup has already been done in the first part, this second part feels more fast-paced. All the subplots from the first part of the story begin to converge toward a shattering climax that will leave the lives of all the characters irrevocably altered.

Batman has returned from his absence to a Gotham that is more chaotic than ever. Unable to take on the task of regaining order by himself, Batman must first take on another uneasy task: repairing the damage his absence has caused in his relationships with his allies. He must also struggle with trusting new potential allies in Huntress and Cassandra Cain. Meanwhile, Cassandra must come face to face with the embodiment of what she was trained to be, the assassin David Cain—her own father and former teacher to Batman—who has been hired to assassinate Jim Gordon. Two-Face, Penguin, and Black Mask continue to tussle for position and the remaining officers of the GCPD, now split into two factions along ideological lines, continue to try to limit the damage. Finally having grown bored of his antics in the mostly abandoned Arkham Asylum, the Joker joins the fray, as does Bane, brought to Gotham by a certain nefarious financier who has an agenda to be executed. Not least of all, Renee Montoya’s strange and strained relationship with Two-Face comes to a head. By the end of the story, none of the characters will be as they were before, and the sound of a single gunshot will mark the end of one life and reverberate through the lives of others.

As is to be expected, the GA team of producers, editors, composers, and actors bring this story masterfully to life. In this second half of the story, we get the treat of hearing Richard Rohan’s excellent portrayal of Joker, and all the other actors continue their excellent work in their respective roles.

It’s hard for me to say that this is the better of the two parts of No Man’s Land, since this part can’t exist without the first part, which is excellent in its own right. The pace is quicker though, and the tension and action are ratcheted way up, In any case, if you enjoyed the first part of the story, you will definitely love this conclusion to one of the all-time essential Batman stories.
very streamlined story by Chip (Posted on 8/10/2018)
Greg Rucka actually wrote about 90% of the core NML issues that really pushed the narrative forward. To make a coherent novel, he did have to streamline and eliminate some characters. (There's no way to explain Azrael that doesn't add an entire extra chapter.)

The whole NML saga was a great way to dip into GA.
Batman 2 by Derrick (Posted on 8/7/2018)
This novel was amazing. I've read the original, but this one with the audio effects and the actors, wow, It was worth listening to even though I knew everything that was going to happen. GraphicAudio does it again. I look forward to listening to the other books that I've read to see what GraphicAudio can amaze me with.
Wonderful! by Matthew (Posted on 7/8/2018)
Greg Rucka did a fantastic job with this adaptation! GraphicAudio's voice work and acting are great as usual!
Parts 1 and 2 are both Fantastic! by BRYAN (Posted on 4/11/2018)
You will not be disappointed with either parts 1 or 2 of this story. Its a very engrossing 10 hours- even more so if you are a Batman fanatic like me. The voices clearly are harkening to Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill of Animated Series, which is obviously never a bad thing. Lots of great apperances from the Bat-Family too. Great acting, great effects. Strongly recommend this 10 hour total epic.
One review for the price of 2 audiobooks. by Paul (Posted on 2/5/2018)
This review is for both parts of this audiobook.

What can I say but WOW. I love the story altogether, obvisouly I love the actors voices and I love the way they did the Joker and Harley Quinn, especially with the looney tunes sound effects. I can't say anything more than that.
Amazing by Deon (Posted on 1/21/2018)
I have loved comics ever since I could hold them. So naturally, any time I can get an audio adaption is even better. Batman No Man's Land is the absolute greatest DC comics audio i have heard since the BBC production of Batman Knightfall. The story spans two volumes and had me hanging on each one. I can't say enough how good this is and that it should be heard by enthusiast and casual fans alike. Great job GA team!
Still Perfection by Ryan (Posted on 1/17/2018)
While it bothers my pocketbook a little that they had to split this up into two parts, it really HAD to be split up. There is so much content in both halves, and it's all so good that I wouldn't want to lose any of it.
Lightning strikes twice (or finishes the first strike) by Ryan (Posted on 7/21/2017)
Just as good as the first!
Batman by Andrea (Posted on 12/20/2016)
After listening to part 1, I had to get part 2 to continue the story. Just like part 1, I was not disappointed! What a great production. I liked that joker was in this one more. I'd wondered about that when listening to the part 1. Anyway, this was a great listen. If you're a fan of the batman, I would definitely recommend this.
Part 2 Remains Dark, Gripping, and Multifaceted by Rob (Posted on 6/16/2016)
All the great elements from Part 1 continue in this installment. The story comes together from so many different points of view but it doesn't seem fractured or piecemeal. I hadn't read this one in the comics and I was very surprised by the ending. (Don't worry, I won't give it away here.) I had been expecting a more typical superhero conclusion and was pleased it didn't go that way. Once again terrific voice acting from the cast and sound design throughout. Recommended!
Got Me Hooked by Nathaniel (Posted on 2/21/2016)
I was a casual fan of Graphic Audio before I listened to "No Mans Land"... But this 2 CD set is what got me hooked. Richard Rohan kills as the Joker. Im very picky at who I can tolerate protraying the 'Clown Prince of Crime', but Rohan blew me away. I now listen to Graphic Audio on a daily basis. Im glad GA continues to market to truckers, they make my long drives much better. Thanks!
Review by Jordan (Posted on 12/8/2015)
I can't recommend this adaptation enough. All of the voice actors shine in their roles, especially the Oracle. I was also impressed with how similar the Joker sounded to his appearances in the Animated Series. Very tense finale!
Must listen! by JOSEPH (Posted on 11/26/2015)
This 2 part story is the best one I've listened 2 yet. It's got all the best characters from the Bat-mythos
Better than part 1 by Christopher (Posted on 11/15/2015)
Being able to jump right into the story without having to setup the story helps this second volume surpass the first. Really enjoyed this story.
loved this story by douglas (Posted on 11/9/2015)
i love this one all the way though the joker is funny. he keeps me cracking up like there was this one part when he discovers that there is a doctor harley quin and the way they described the way she was living in the cell was so funny and the way joker reacted had me laughing so hard for like five minutes
batman no mans land part 2 by brian (Posted on 4/13/2015)
great story better listen
Perfection!!! by Demi (Posted on 3/4/2015)
Stunning. A pure masterpiece. Flawless. Mind-blowing. One of the greatest Batman stories/performances ever created.
The first Graphic Audios I listened too by Daniel (Posted on 12/31/2014)
Awsome and one to listen to again and again both parts 1 and 2. I got the other graphic audios because of this one. I am one of those Imdb friends that tries to figure out who was also in the other graphic audios from this one.

They needed to loan Richard Rohan out to do the Joker in Batman Arkham Origins. He would have done a far better Joker than the one they had.

This is a great mix of voice actors working and being their character and a strong and compelling story that ranges from the edge of your seat action to horror that shakes your core.
Batgirl Orgins by Marcus (Posted on 9/5/2014)
I love this title because you get to see Cassandra Cain potentially become Batgirl. Rebelling from the evil ways her father taught her, Cassandra proves to Batman she can easily hold her own with the rest of the bat family. And with some time, Oracle makes her peace, and hands down her costume, and her past title as Batgirl, to Cassandra. A beautiful story, I definitely recommend it.
Batman: No Man's Land Part 2 by Steven (Posted on 9/3/2014)
It has been eight months since the government sealed off Gotham City and declared it a no man’s land, having decided it would be far too costly to rebuild the earthquake-shattered city. During that time, Gotham’s usual rogue’s gallery, Two-face, Penguin, Black Mask et al have been jockeying for position with only Commissioner Gordon and a handful of remaining cops to maintain order. It seems hopeless, as even Batman, only recently returned from a lengthy absence, is unable to hold the small section of the beleaguered city that he staked out. This is one fight that Batman will need help with, but who can he call? And what has the ominously absent Joker been up to all this time?

Finally swallowing his pride, Batman contacts Oracle with an urgent message: “Call them.” Soon enough, help is on the way in the form of Dick Grayson, formerly known as Batman’s sidekick Robin, now called Nightwing, and Tim Drake, the current Robin. Batman has already enlisted the aid of the strange, silent girl known only as Cassandra, and he may even get some help from the Huntress.

But there are other new players coming to Gotham as well, the most notable being Bane, the only man who has ever beaten Batman. It seems that Bane has been hired by an extremely wealthy businessman whom comic fans will undoubtedly recognize, although they may be surprised to find him in Gotham City. With all the major players in place, it’s shaping up to be an exciting finish in No Man’s Land.

Part 2 of Graphic Audio’s Batman: No Man’s Land release proves to be every bit as good as, and perhaps better than, part 1. Nightwing and Robin show up to aid Batman. There’s tension between Batman and Huntress because of her questionable methods. Bane is sent into no man’s land by a wealthy financier who has an unhealthy interest in the ruined city. Cassandra’s father shows up prompting some insights into her past, and then Batman gives her a Batgirl suit! And rumours begin to trickle into No Man’s Land that the government may reverse its decision and re-open the city! Wow!

And if that isn’t enough excitement for you, the Joker finally comes out of hiding! After an unknown person opened the cells at Arkham Asylum for the Criminally Insane, it seems Joker stayed put for a while pursuing his own crazy whims. After a while, however, he begins to get bored and, let’s face it, a little hurt because Batman hasn’t come around looking for him. And we all know what happens when Joker gets bored, don’t we? When Joker learns that the city will be re-opened, his boredom evaporates because he knows the whole world will be watching.

Joker is probably Batman’s most complex enemy, and one who I feel has often been mis-handled in the comics. Greg Rucka did a great job with him though, really exploring his insanity and his complicated relationship with Batman. After finally leaving Arkham, Joker goes to Gotham’s baseball stadium looking for a good pair of cleats, and instead finds a small group of people who have holed up there. They know who he is and are terrified, so Joker soon has them playing baseball with him, uniforms and all. The character was very well written by Rucka, and brilliantly performed by Richard Rohan, the same man who voices Batman.

Batman: No Man’s Land Part 2 is a full cast audio production complete with music and sound effects. As with all of Graphic Audio’s releases, this one was extremely well done. The sound quality is excellent and the cast all did an exceptional job. The cast of characters includes, among others:

Richard Rohan as Batman
Richard Rohan as the Joker
Karen Novack as Oracle
Bradley Smith as Nightwing
Chris Rohan as Tim Drake
Joseph Thornhill as Bane
James Konicek as Jim Gordon
Thomas Keegan as Two-face
Yasmin Tuazon as the Huntress
Greg Gorton as the Penguin
Terence Aselford as Alfred Pennyworth
Nanette Savard as Cassandra

This was my first new audiobook of the year and what a way to kick off 2012! You can always count on a thrilling ride from Graphic Audio and this production was no exception.
great except by Timothy (Posted on 6/10/2014)
At the same library they had this one too. In boy I was excited to start this one. All was going good till the introduced Harley Quinn. I'm a big Batman the Animated Series fan and Harley Quinn was actually one of my favorite characters. The voice actress really really made me sad. she totally the missed the mark in my opinion. All i could think was"will this woman just shut the hell up?" Mercifully she wasnt in this story much and probably would of been better without her.
However the rest of the cast was spot on especially the joker, the guy does a great Mark Hamill. Still worth getting you can stomach Harley Quinn. 9/10.
They got the comic right. by Timothy (Posted on 2/3/2014)
Pros
- Well acted.
- Follows the "book" well.
- adds to the batman mythos for the graphic audio listeners.
Cons
- It follows the book based on the comic, not the comic itself. Argo, you lose some of the details of the batman history.
- the Joker sounds like a copy of mark hammel's Joker, rather than trying to make an original voice. However, if you are going to copy, you might as well copy from the best.
Best Batman book on Graphic Audio! by Travis Martin (Posted on 1/5/2014)
This was the first Graphic Audio book I listened to. My friend gave me a bunch of the DC series books cause I work alone, so it helps me get through the night and this by far is my favorite with "The Flash: Stop Motion" and "Green Lantern: Heroes Quest" both tie at second place. To top it all off Richard Rohan is the best narrator I've ever heard. For that alone I will be sticking with Graphic Audio for some time.
Stuck the Landing by Catdaddy (Posted on 10/22/2013)
There is plenty of story to fill the ten+ hours. Readers of the graphic novels will notice they had to abandon entire story lines in favor of clear storytelling. (No Catwoman in this version!)

But the conclusion is more than satisfying: it is poignant as all get-out and haunting.

As with Part I, the show is a hard PG–13 for its violence. It is quite intense, though it does not contain the R–rated sex and pervasive language of Batman: Dead White.
Batman: No Man's Land (2 of 2) by Carlos (Posted on 10/11/2013)
I own the books for this series and was happy to buy the audio version. Great production and the acting was on point!! I couldn't stop listening and hope that more productions like this come soon.
