"Days of Auld Lang Syne." This was the final issue of "No Man's Land," and if the Joker's horrific murder of Sarah Essen Gordon served as the tragic finale of the saga, then this was the quieter epilogue. The title of this story comes from the old Scots song "Auld Lang Syne," which is traditionally sung at the coming of the New Year in many Western countries and in modern English more or less means the same thing as "days gone by" or "old times." And that is what this issue is all about - saying goodbye to the 365 days when Gotham City was declared a warzone and cut off from the United States, bidding farewell to the loved ones lost and looking forward to a bold new chapter in Gotham. I've put some of the issue's key snippets above. Barbara Gordon attends the funeral of Sarah Essen, sadly musing that she never got the chance to truly think of Sarah as a second mother. Batman visits Lex Luthor to tell him to get out of Gotham, because with the help of Lucius Fox, it's been discovered that Lex has committed fraud with several of the legal and financial documents that placed him in control of the city's rebuilding effort. Nightwing goes to see Huntress, now recuperating in the hospital, and briefly rekindles their one-time romance as the New Year's countdown begins. James Gordon stops by the grave of his recently departed wife, telling her that he'll always love her. And Batman visits the grave of his parents...pausing to look up at the January 1 fireworks as they burst in the sky, signifying the dawn of a new Gotham. We've come a long way, and I have one more "No Man's Land" post left before we wrap up. See you tomorrow. (Art by Pablo Raimondi, script by Greg Rucka for Shadow of the Bat issue 94.)
