Grant Morrison's Seven Year Run Comes to a Close You'll Love or Hate 3 décembre 2013
Par Anarchy in the US - Publié sur
Format: Relié
After seven years of doing Batman (about six years if you consider the comic wasn't published the first few months of the New 52), Grant Morrison's run on the Caped Crusader comes to an end. What originally started out to be a seventeen issues worth up to R.I.P, has now turned into a sprawling epic of Dick Grayson becoming Batman with Damien Wayne as Robin, to Bruce Wayne hopping through time and space, to finally becoming Batman again and starting a world wide corporation of Bat-people against international criminal agency known as Leviathan. Batman Incorporated volume 2 ends it all on a big action and emotional climax, but the final conclusion might or might not leave you a bit disappointed.

BATMAN INCORPORATED VOL.2: GOTHAM'S MOST WANTED collects issues #7-13 and BATMAN INCORPORATED SPECIAL #1. Continuing from volume 1, Batman looks to have been beaten by Talia's bodyguard. Leviathan looks like it has Gotham and Batman Inc. on the ropes of defeat, but a member of the Bat-family steps up to save everyone with all their might to turn the tide of battle, which leads into this characters death. With little time to morn, the character's passing pushes Batman enough that he is dead set to end this war with Leviathan and Talia Al Ghul once and for all. Seeing as Talia will not stop unless she or Batman die, will Batman finally break his code of not killing to stop her?

Much like the previous volume, Morrison focuses on action and tying up loose ends of his run on Batman, and it turns out to be a pretty good straightforward read without any of Morrison's hidden messages or metaphors to confuse readers. So if you are completely up to date on Morrison's long epic, you'll know what is going on. There isn't much to say without giving things away but it's pretty much Batman Inc. vs. Leviathan conclusion. So I'll just leave it at that. Again, here is the reading order of Grant Morrison's run on Batman:

Batman and Son -
The Black Glove
Batman R.I.P.
Final Crisis
Batman: Time and the Batman
The Return of Bruce Wayne
Batman & Robin (three volumes worth)
Batman, Incorporated Vol.1
Batman Incorporated Vol.1: Demon Star
Batman Incorporated Vol.2: Gotham's most Wanted - Conclusion

The big element in this volume beyond it being the finale of Morrison's Batman is the death of the Bat-family member. I know many probably know of who it is by now from either it be the internet or read it the select trades who have the requiem issue on said character, but I will still not spoil who it is. I will say the character goes out in a blaze of glory and it truly impacts the whole Bat family in the many other Bat-books (in their respective issue #18s and #10 for Worlds Finest). It's not some hack-eyed death folks. This is a whopper. It also serves as the final tipping point for Batman going all out himself in a focused rage you have to see to believe. Again, all the plots of Morrison's run comes to a close, and with the theme of ouroboros,it fits the theme quite well considering the writers history.

While Morrison writes issues #7-10 and #12-13, issues #11 and the Batman Annual Special are written by amalgamation of writers and artist within the comic industry similar to the Batman: Black & White, Legends of the Dark Knight, and Adventures of Superman series. They are essentially filler issues that have nothing to do with Batman, but Batman Inc. members. They do serve to be enjoyable in a way, if you are one who enjoyed the various Bat Inc. members.

Extras include the usual alternate covers, but there is a special closing statement from Morrison himself and looking back on his work for Batman. I love these farewell messages after a long series is concluded, so this always special for me. It is also nice because Morrison summarizes any questions readers might have about something. And best of all, there is a timeline showcasing all of Morrison's Batman with additional suggestions to other books like Year One, Batwoman: Elegy, and A Death in the Family if (not necessary mind you) you wish to know more.

Art duties are again mostly handled by Chris Burnham, who does his own Frank Quietly impressions to a fault. The art is detailed, uniquely designed narrative structure, and bolds well with Morrison's writing. Some occasion fill-in artist do a few pages here and there, but it doesn't detract from the story.

So what are the flaws here? First of all, since this is the last chapter of Morrison's Batman, in order to proper understand everything (including the ending twist, especially), you'd best know your Morrison work on Batman. It's not really a flaw, but you'll miss out on certain things if they are not cleared up. And although this is pretty straightforward read from Morrison, he does have a few times the narrative jumps, but it's only a loose hiccup. For example, the same page the Bat character dies, Batman is shown flying off the roof with someone in hand, then the same page, he's holding the dead body. It's slightly rough, but I think you'll know what's going on.

The real problems lie in the ending and death of said Bat character. With everything Morrison builds up upon, the ending might feel anti-climatic or underwhelming. I will say this without giving it away though: it does still fit the theme of ouroboros, the sense of something constantly re-creating itself; a constant circle. It's fitting of Morrison that works not only for Batman, but for Superheroes alike in that no matter who writes what, no matter what status quo happens, no matter how long it last, and even if a character finds a happy or sad ending...a comic character will always revert back to the original self and the cycle of stories that change the character will happen again. So you'll either love the idea or just be disappointed in it.

And the death of the Bat-family member might really upset people (as it still does in current comics!). This characters death literally impacts ALL other Bat books (aside from Batwing and Batwoman), which is odd considering Batman Inc. is supposed to be Morrison's storyline before the New 52 and shouldn't effect the other Bat-books, but it does. And some might see it as a cheap way to get attention. So it wouldn't surprise me if some readers get taken out of the story due to the incident.

Either way, BATMAN INCORPORATED VOL.2: GOTHAM'S MOST WANTED ends on an action packed and emotional ride, with a conclusion that I think fits right within Morrison's ideas. Most of the storylines get closed, the art is great, the fill-in issues #11 and the Annual Special are pretty good by themselves, and the extras at the end are welcomed. But the death of a major character and the conclusion might hate and despise Morrison or DC and make you feel cheated. And you might not really care for the stand alone Batman Inc. member issues. I'll give this book a 4 stars because I still enjoyed this book and what Morrison did for Batman. And yes, that it's all finally over for Morrison and Batman together. It was a fun ride and crazy ride.

Grant Morrison's Grand Finale 3 décembre 2013
Par Scott Knight - Publié sur
Format: Relié
Grant Morrison wraps up his years of writing various Batman titles with the story told in Batman Incorporated Vol. 2: Gotham's Most Wanted. Bruce Wayne (Batman) and his son Damian (Robin) are in the final showdown with Damian's mother, Talia Al Ghul and her criminal organization Leviathan. With Gotham held hostage, Batman is forced into a tragic showdown with Talia. Meanwhile, the other members of Batman, Inc. are in battles of their own. Without revealing spoilers, this story contains some life-altering events for several members of Batman's team. It is a superb story, and a great pay-off to fans who have followed Morrison's run. Seeds that were planted years ago come to fruition. I'm really looking forward to seeing how Batman and his group move forward in future stories.

Along with the main storyline, this collection includes several back-up features starring various members of Batman, Inc. They are okay, but not necessary to understand the overall story arc.

I highly recommend Gotham's Most Wanted.

I received a preview copy of this book from DC Comics in exchange for an honest review.

Gotham's Most Awesome! 23 décembre 2013
Par Sam Quixote - Publié sur
Format: Relié
Talia Al-Ghul’s Leviathan is taking over Gotham and only Bruce Wayne’s Batman Inc. can stop them! This is it, the final battle between good and evil, father and mother - and what happens when parents fight? The kids suffer. Gotham’s Most Wanted is a kitchen sink soap opera played out as high melodrama between superheroes. It’s also Grant Morrison’s final book in his seven year Batman run and it’s as amazing a finale as you’d hope.

I highly recommend re-reading the first volume to remind yourself how it ended because the second volume picks up immediately after, mid-action sequence and barrels straight on through to the bitter end. The pacing in this story is insane as Morrison throws massive scenes at the reader, one after the other. Some members of Batman Inc. have already been killed by the Abomination – another of Talia’s experiments with Bruce’s DNA and hers, though this one turned out far more physically monstrous than Damian – while Gotham’s children have been brainwashed into becoming homicidal maniacs, fighting what remains of Batman Inc and the GCPD in the streets alongside Leviathan’s forces!

This book has one of the year’s most talked about moments in comics: the death of Damian (and no it’s not a spoiler when it makes international headlines!). Morrison goes full circle from introducing Damian to readers in his first book, Batman and Son, to taking him away in his final one. You can see what a great writer Morrison is in the way he’s developed Damian over the years. Re-read those early books and you’ll notice how insanely evil Damian is when he first arrives. He nearly kills Tim and beats Alfred, refusing to listen to anything Bruce has to say, and even killing one of Gotham’s lesser costumed crooks. In this book Bruce knows Talia’s after Damian so tells him to stay behind in the Batcave – and he does! And when he sees the havoc Leviathan is unleashing and wants to help his friends, he looks to Alfred for permission to leave. Damian’s changed over the years, respecting his new family and changing his values from the ruthless to the compassionate.

Damian’s character shows in other ways as his pet menagerie grows with the inclusion of Alfred the cat (who readers will remember seeing in those amazing alternate future Damian-as-Batman issues like Batman #666 and Batman Inc. #5), alongside his dog Titus and, of course, Batcow. He’s gone from unfeeling ninja assassin to an ordinary kid who loves animals.

If Damian’s character has softened, his fighting abilities sure haven’t and he goes down in his fight against Abomination like the legend he is. I could write in depth about this scene but I’ll just say 1) his final farewell with Dick Grayson was awesome (Damian: We were the best, Richard, no matter what anyone thinks. Dick: Hey, we can’t help being great. Damian: Ready?), and 2) the way Chris Burnham draws the fight is phenomenal, at one point putting in 20 panels on one page and making each one count – that’s special. It was my favourite fight scene of the year, it’s so damn brutal and brilliant.

Bruce meanwhile is the other half of what makes this book a masterpiece. Talia brilliantly puts him in a death-trap knowing he’ll escape but knowing that the time it takes for him to escape will make him unable to save Damian in time. She’s such an evil genius! Damian’s death is as shocking to Bruce as it is to us readers, and his reaction is crazy. Barefoot, barehands, stepping on broken glass, he goes to town on the armoured Abomination! Dick joins him in defeating him, though of course don’t kill him. It’s a very cathartic scene if you’re a Damian fan. Bruce saves his rage for Talia, turning himself into a one-man army in the process – double Batman (that’s deliberately cryptic, you’ll have to read this to see what that looks like)! I won’t talk about the final act because it’s full of surprises that I don’t even want to hint at – discover them for yourself.

There are a couple of issues included that are non-sequiturs like Batman Inc #11 which is a Batman of Japan issue written by Chris Burnham and drawn by Jorge Lucas, and the Batman Inc Special which features the various members of Batman Inc in multiple short stories. The #11 issue was created partly because it enabled Burnham the time to draw every page in the final two issues – Jason Masters was the able fill-in artist for several issues in this arc – and partly because there’d be nowhere else to feature Jiro stories. This issue shows that Burnham’s not as accomplished a writer as he is an artist, but it’s a fun campy issue that feels Power Rangers-y and pays homage to kitschy Japanese culture.

The Special, while taking place after the main story ends, isn’t at all related to it and shouldn’t be read as a coda but more of an extra for the fans. It features a number of standalone stories, my favourite of which is the silent Batcow issue because it’s so funny and who doesn’t love Batcow? I feel that, after Damian, he’s the breakout character in Morrison’s run (seriously!). Whatever, more Batcow please!

Gotham’s Most Wanted is an amazing story written beautifully by Morrison and drawn unbelievably well by Chris Burnham. This is a terrific finale to the story and an incredible way to end Morrison’s run. This is Morrison bowing out big style. It’s simply one of the best books of the year and one of the finest Batman books ever written. Thank you for writing Batman, Grant Morrison.

Is Damian really dead? Is Leviathan? Or Batman Inc.?

Morrison's Finale is Less than Grand 5 décembre 2013
Par E. David Swan - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
There are a lot of gushing quotes on the front and back cover including this one from the New York Times, “A Fitting Finale… A Satisfying-And-Surprising End to the Batman/Talia War”. Coming from someone who has read through the entire Batman Incorporated series I found the ending neither surprising nor satisfying. Maybe it’s because I’ve read SO many high stakes Batman stories recently where The Dark Knight is pushed to his limit that it no longer has any real impact anymore. When Batman Incorporated first started I was pretty excited particularly with the idea of putting focus on the various Batmen from around the world. Think Again. This is all about the Bruce Wayne Batman with the other characters as window-dressing.

Picking up from the last volume Talia Al-Ghul’s Leviathan continues to menace Batman and Gotham City having now taken over Wayne Towers. Turns out the big heavy in the mask she’s been travelling with is her OTHER son, this one having been born adult sized in the belly of a whale carcass. This is where I start to get confused (trademark of Grant Morrison). Talia wants to detonate a device called the Oroboro which will, I believe, destroy seven cities but she needs the trigger which I guess she somehow lost. The big event of this story arc is the death of a character that I grew to like very much and the death was handled horribly. It seems like a thing with Morrison that he likes to kill off characters in the most forgettable way possible.

I love about half the stuff Morrison produces and this collection falls into the OTHER half. I didn’t hate it but the payoff was not worth the journey. Chris Burnham is a fine artist but I always get the sense he’s desperately trying to emulate Frank Quitely but with very uneven results. In particular his drawings of bodies are much better than his drawing of heads. My understanding is that Damian Wayne is supposed to be between 7 and 10 years old but Burnham draws him as if he were about 4.Speaking of Damian, Morrison wants to convince the reader that Damian is ridiculously talented. A chip off the old block so to speak. He’s able to break into the Batcave because he’s capable of imitating his father’s voice with complete accuracy. That’s supposed to be impressive but instead came off as goofy as I envisioned this teeny little boy (as Burnham draws him) pulling off Batman’s deep gravelly voice.

There are two stories by Chris Burnham who seems as eager to imitate Grant Morrison’s writing style as he was Frank Quitely’s art style. On the one hand they feature Jiro Osamu, the Batman of Japan. So I was glad to see the focus on someone other than the Bruce Wayne Batman but the stories aren’t that great and the goofy techno Deus Ex Machina ending of the first story felt like the worst kind of Morrison ending.

TheTalia/Leviathan story here might seem inventive and riveting if you haven’t already read The Black Glove or R.I.P. or The Black Mirror or The Court of Owls (and I know latter two were written by Scott Snyder by they all have a very similar feel). For me it was a case of been there done that. This is not a bad book but my reaction was meh, next. It seems as if this is officially the end of Morrison’s tenure penning Batman and it’s probably for the best. Morrison has produced some of the most amazing Batman stories I have ever read but as far as I’m concerned he’s gone to the well a few too many times and the repetition of ideas are getting dull. Morrison has produced five star material but this one is a three.
Batman Incorporated Vol. 2 Review 11 juillet 2014

So, I finally read the entirety of Grant Morrison's Batman run.

So let's get something out of the way. Grant Morrison is not one of my favorite writers. I have enjoyed some of his work, and I have disliked some other. He's not an "everybody's writer" writer. Seems to be he writes for himself more than anybody else. Also I feel he takes tooooooooo long to make a point.

That being said, I think his Batman run is PURE GOLD!! Now that is finished is safe for you, new reader, to start and finish this run. You don't have to wait from volume to volume asking yourself "Hummm? Did he died? What happened here?? What is this mean??" Yeah. That happens with Mr, Morrison.

Now, it doesn't matter who tells you what, these are the only books you should read to get this story right:

* THE BLACK CASEBOOK - Absolutely required reading. This book contain silly stories from the 60's. Grant Morrison used those stories as a base for the events of his entire run. You'll thank me when you feel comfortable knowing who El Gaucho is (between others).
* BATMAN AND SON (NEW EDITION) - Get the one that contains Batman & Son and The Black Glove all in one book (384 pages).
* FINAL CRISIS - Basically this is an extension of Batman RIP. Although the book is a mess, it contains an important event for this Batman run.
* TIME AND THE BATMAN - Not critical, but it does contain the lost chapter that tells what happened in the moment between Batman RIP and Final Crisis. You can skip it and you'll be fine. This is for completest.

That's all the run. In chronological order.

I just can't stress how much I enjoyed this. Is too good. Yes, is somewhat cooky in the middle, but is still fun. Crazy Scottish!

If you didn't like it it's ok. I understand. Really. I gotta say that most likely, you didn't enjoyed because you skip one of the volumes above. Maybe the Black Casebook? That's not a Grant Morrison written book, mind you. Is just something to help you getting the bigger picture.

Anyway, with it's ups and downs, i give thee... 5 stars!
