Everywhere I look on the web it has Batman: Vengeance of bane listed as his first appearance but in my back issues I see that bvob came out 12/31/92 batman issue 489 featured bane and it was released 12/23/92 it was released before bane origin too meet the batman deadline...so isn't batman 489 technically his first appearance?
That book was released after Batman 489 by a week. I have both purchased right when they hit the rack and its clearly listed in the front of the book under the publishing date....Batman 489 was his first appearance Vengeance of Bane was his origin. http://www.comixology.com/Batman-1940-2011-489/digital-comic/ICO003722 http://www.comixology.com/Batman-Vengeance-of-Bane-1-of-2/digital-comic/ICO003695 Print release dates are listed on the bottom right... Batman 489 FTW
