For about two decades, I've written that some of the problems with DC/Marvel characters is that writers can't make major changes that last because the status quo needs to be maintained so that the companies can always make money telling stories about Batman v Joker or Peter worrying about his aunt or Daredevil fighting the Kingpin. Because of the lack of change, the stories get stale.
Thus, some of the best stories by the Big Two take place outside of continuity, where major events and seismic changes allow for a more dynamic story. This book takes place 20 years in a future where so much has gone wrong (and many, many heroes are dead).
We have a Batman who hasn't aged who is wandering around this new hellscape with a disembodied Joker head as his companion (think the volleyball in 'Castaway' but it actually talks). Many of the central characters engage in actions that they never would have (Alfred, Bruce, Gordon). Dick Grayson is perhaps the only one in this that rings true. Dianna makes an appearance here in a supporting role which feels pretty spot on.
Reading this feels like work. Hard pass.
While I have no problems with the narrative, the packaging it came in (the Amazon box) was damaged, and the bottom part of the spine has a slight tear to it. It's somewhat noticeable, but given the situation (COVID-19), it's not a problem for me.
If you're a Batman fan, you'll certainly enjoy it. If you've followed Snyder and Capullo's Batman run during the New 52 Era, you'll certainly want to read this book.

Halfway through I wasn’t sure where it was going because the plot is all over the place at times.
But I feel it has an Old Man Logan feel this comic has.
Who knows, a series with Wonder Woman maybe? Or other DC characters in this future.
This comic doesn’t pull any punches at all, the plot is as chaotic as chaos gets.
But in the end it plays out well enough.
I don’t want to spoil the story for you so I’m not giving away too much.
I think this may appeal to Snyder-Capullo enthusiasts more than anyone. So if you don’t know their names or you’re unfamiliar, check out The New 52 Batman comics!
The plot is nonsensical, it’s disjointed and I still loved it.
I even got the three original comics on release because I have so much faith in Snyder and Capullo.
The book is a basic hardback and dust jacket.
The hardback has the jokers head with a yellow background.
The pages are alright, better than The Justice League, Hawkman pages we’ve recently had.
You got some nice variants in the back too....
Yeah that’s it.
No notes, no sketches or alternative scenes.
My opinion would be get this comic!
But if you’re not plush with cash then I’d just wait for it to drop in price.
It’s a great story, but I don’t think it’ll go down with the ages.
So yeah, a recommend comic indeed.
Thanks for reading!

It's a crazy story with outlandish ideas and looks at a world that reevaluate's the DC heroes and villains as we know it. Throw in a great mystery plot and great dynamic duo and this book is nothing short of amazing.
If you love DC. If you Love Batman and if you love post apocalyptic settings with a fresh coat of paint. This is a no brainer for any fan
Die ganze Geschichte ergibt im Endeffekt überhaupt keinen Sinn, ist aber mit einigen sehr starken Bildern versehen, so dass ich insgesamt eineinhalb Punkte geben würde.
Last Knight on Earth is a continuation of the former Snyder/Capullo run. They have put a lot of themes from their run into the story. So it is better to have read the New 52 Batman. The book itself is post-apocalyptic fun with great ideas, a plausible dynamic relationship between Batman and Joker‘s head, and a world that is so different but still feels like a DC world. Snyder does a great job bringing back known DC characters with a new twist. But don‘t expect it to be „Old Man Wayne“. It is still a typical Snyder Batman comic with flashbacks and a story that isn‘t told coherently. While that worked for „Death of the Family“ and „Endgame“ pretty well „Last Knight on Earth“ leaves too many questions.
What’s really annoying:
- the first chapter - even though it is cleverly told - is totally pointless for the story as a whole and rises expectations it can never meet
- the Joker backround story in the past is never fully explained
- worst of all the revelation of Omega is utterly stupid. I don‘t want to spoil anything but that character would never act the way he does in the comic. It totally ruins the whole story.
I would still buy „Last Knight on Earth“ again for its fantastic art, captivating story, and the post-apocalyptic take - but I would also hate it for its sloppy storytelling.
