Yeah, "The Search" wasn't any worse than a lot of the "Crusade" issues were.
I am thinking of buying the collected editions of the whole Knightfall saga, including the recent release of "Knightquest," but I understand that it is not really complete. Amazon reviews say that the healing of Bruce's back isn't shown, that he just suddenly shows up healed. I have read descriptions of how he is healed, but my question is- in what issue of what title does that actual healing take place? I thought I might just track down a copy of that individual comic to add to the collected editions.
The story covers the conclusion of Bruce's search for Shondra, Alfred's departure and the healing of Batman.
There was a 2 part JLI story where Bruce is in a wheelchair looking for assistance in his search. It probably won't be included either, and wasn't very memorable to my recall, but for the sake of completion... :)
I'm not certain that the collected edition contains every issue of Knightquest as it was pretty darn long.
Other than that, I think every other Knightquest issue (aside from possibly a few Catwoman issues, if they were officially labelled as such) is now collected. They make up "Knightquest: The Crusade," which is Jean-Paul Valley's story as the new Batman.
The 3 newest collect them all. 3 books all about 600-700 pages long including 'the missing issues' of knightquest and as an extra bonus part 3 includes 'Prodigal'. Part 1 now also includes Bane origin 'Vengeancee of Bane' if you dont already have it.
The JL issues were actually Justice League Task Force #'s 5-6, and they were complete filler at best.
Thanks for all the responses. Also wondering- do the new "Knightquest" and the old "Knightfall Part 2: Who Owns the Night?" have a lot of the same material in them?
