About: Batman, Vol 5: Rules of Engagement by Tom King (illustrated by Joëlle Jones) continues the Batman Rebirth story-line. This graphic novel collects Batman #33-37 as well as Batman Annual #2. 160 pages Publisher: DC Comics Language: English ISBN-10: 1401277314 My rating for Batman Vol 5: Rules of Engagement – 5 Buy Batman Vol 5: Rules of Engagement from Amazon.com* More Books by Tom King Thoughts: Batman, Vol 5: Rules of Engagement by Tom King (illustrated by Joëlle Jones) is another solid entry in the Rebirth series. I must admit that this run is absolutely incredible, all five issues so far hit it out of the park. In this volume Mr. King continues to explore Batman and Catwoman’s complex relationship through words and deeds (read: action).

These tasks take on a new meaning in this book, brilliantly told while exploring the relationships of…
