Review

A sublime return to Batman s pulp origins .The stakes have never been higher. After all these many, long decades, Batman wants to be free. And reading Grant Morrison, more than anything else, is an act of trust that his project for the character is generationally definitive. PopMatters the most fun I ve had reading a comic book MTV Geek A fun, exotic thrill-ride IGN This is a fun comic. Fun . Wonderfully Entertaining Comic Book Resources"

About the Author

Grant Morrison has been working with DC Comics for more than twenty years, beginning with his legendary runs on the revolutionary titles ANIMAL MAN and DOOM PATROL. Since then he has written numerous best-sellers including JLA, BATMAN and "New X-Men" as well as the critically acclaimed creator-owned series THE INVISIBLES, SEAGUY, THE FILTH, WE3 and JOE THE BARBARIAN. Morrison has also expanded the borders of the DC Universe in the award-winning pages of SEVEN SOLDIERS, ALL-STAR SUPERMAN, FINAL CRISIS and BATMAN, INC., and he is currently reinventing the Man of Steel in the all-new ACTION COMICS. In his secret identity, Morrison is a counterculture spokesperson, a musician, an award-winning playwright and a chaos magician. He is also the author of the "New York Times" best-seller "Supergods," a groundbreaking psycho-historic mapping of the superhero as a cultural organism. He divides his time between his homes in Los Angeles and Scotland."

Format: Paperback
This volume reprints issues #1-8 of Batman Incorporated as well as the double-sized Leviathan Strikes special. Bruce Wayne has decided to make Batman a global franchise, and sets out to recruit an international team of international crime-fighters, sponsored by Wayne Enterprises. These are entertaining stories with good characterisation and excellent artwork. And Grant Morrison continues to excavate the 1950s Bat-heritage.

The Contents are -
"Mr Unknown is Dead"
"Resurrector!"
"Scorpion Tango"
"The Kane Affair"
"Masterspy"
"Nyktomorph"
"Medicine Soldier"
"Nightmares in Numberland"
"Leviathan Strikes!"

The first two-part adventure takes place in Japan with Catwoman, as Batman tries to recruit Mr Unknown, Catwoman tries to recruit some extremely exotic jewels, and Master Death Man tries to kill everybody.

The second adventure is a three-parter, as Batman tries to recruit El Gaucho, El Sombrero tries to kill them both, Batwoman uncovers a lead to the death of the original Batwoman, and everyone ends up on the island prison holding a Nazi mad scientist, as Leviathan reveals itself.

Issue #6 sees Batman Inc. going into full-scale action as Leviathan goes to war.

Issue #7 sees Batman try to recruit Man-of-Bats and Little Raven; unfortunately, there's trouble on the reservation between Doctor William Great Eagle and his son Charlie... There's also trouble from Leviathan. Remember the dog in the night...

Issue #8 sees Oracle and Batman wage digital warfare in a virtual reality trap!

Format: Paperback
Bruce Wayne reveals himself as the financial backer behind the Batman and that he plans to finance like-minded vigilantes around the world so that there will be a Batman in every part of the world under the umbrella title - Batman Incorporated.

This book introduces a large number of the new recruits to Batman Inc as Bruce Wayne/Batman travels the world training up an army for the coming storm with a mysterious new cadre of evil called Leviathan.

First up is a trip to Japan where Batman and Catwoman meet Jiro Osamu aka Mr Unknown, a Japanese superhero battling the madman Lord Death Man, a villain who treats the world like it's Grand Theft Auto. While dark, the story had lots of funny episodes such as a giant octopus in an apartment and a scene involving a cackling skeleton driving a car into a building which made me laugh. Jiro Osamu becomes the Batman of Japan.

Next up Batman goes to Argentina to meet Santiago Vargas aka El Gaucho who becomes the Batman of Argentina. It was cool to see Kate Kane aka Batwoman make an appearance here, here's looking forward to the next Batwoman book. George Cross aka the Hood also makes an appearance and the major villain of the book, Otto Netz/Dr Dedalus is introduced.

Otto Netz is a very cool villain, he's basically the Cold War/James Bond villain of yesteryear but old and riddled with Alzheimer's so his bizarre and lethal traps for Batman become crazier and crazier as the book goes on. He's also got these excellent bug eyes and a cape of smoke.

Batman heads to South Dakota next where two Native Americans, a father/son team of Man-of-Bats and his son Raven dish out justice, Batman style.

Format: Paperback
I read a library copy of the paperback.
The idea here, of Batman creating a ‘Batman Incorporated’ and recruiting his deputies around the world – is a good one.
One man’s inspired mining of the 1950s Batman storybook is another man’s scraping the stereotypical barrel in the heroes used to populate Batman Inc but on the whole it makes for some refreshing lightness in tone.
The over arcing links and the emerging threat of ‘Leviathan’ keeps the collection together in a fairly coherent manner.
For a Grant Morrison storyline to remain ‘fairly coherent’ is quite a success I believe.
This clearly was originally suppose to be issues #1-10 as the Leviathan special clearly collects two issues in one and I believe was pushed forward in production due to the New52 revamp.
This is presumably the last appearance of the Stephanie Brown Batgirl for instance.
The art is generally good. I agree sometimes the mad grimacing rips the reader out of the story wondering what on earth is going on – and I really didn’t like the digital-art / Oracle-centred issue at all.
There is a kind of snobbery that surrounds batman titles and certainly Grant Morrison tales that I don’t hold with, this is a fine trade, but for, me, a long way from a classic.

Format: Paperback
I'm sorry- I am a huge Batman fan and I thoroughly enjoy reading new stories that come out and I was really interested in the novel concept of Batman setting up a global 'Batman Inc' community; however, this graphic novel was incredibly disappointing. I have never got halfway through and not wanted to continue, but the second half of this was a struggle.
Not only is the narrative so badly constructed that it seems that pages of dialogue are missing in order to tie the events together, the dialogue and events that are evident are very poor indeed. Batman goes around the world and teams up with some incredibly uninteresting and stereotypical characters whose back stories are vague. At some point it seems as though the characters have a much greater grasp of what is going on than the reader does. I laughed when it started to explain that the Nazi scientist badguy is actually all the baddies that have ever existed (or something equally unimaginative).
Overall- to all you Batman fans out there- this is a long way from the quality that we are used to. It might sound appealing to read a Batman comic which is a crossover with lots of 'international' superheroes; however by 'international' it means there is British one called The Iron Lady who says 'the woman's not for turning', and a Spanish one that has to avoid a Salsa dancing assassin. There are some others as well but they are too painfully dull to describe.
