Format: Paperback
This volume reprints Batman #676-683 and DC Universe #0. It appears to continue from the preceding volume, so this story might be confusing if you haven't read The Black Glove (which I haven't). On the other hand, as this is Grant Morrison, it might just be confusing for the sake of it. Anyway, Batman appears to be infatuated with yet another female, Jezebel Jet, while under psychological and physical attack from the Black Glove organisation. He is captured, drugged, and released onto the streets of Gotham while under the influence. He appears to hallucinate the presence of Bat-Mite (referred to occasionally as `might' - a typo or a message?) and starts to `remember' some 1950s adventures. It all apparently turns out to be part of a psychological defence mechanism, and we get to see some interesting back-story of his early training, while Robin, Nightwing and friends take care of the enemy henchmen. It all climaxes with the Joker doing what he does best, and Talia al' Ghul demonstrating that diplomatic passports don't work against angry wives... It is a sometimes confusing story, as I have said, but if you persevere, you might work it out (though you can never tell with Grant Morrison if you are supposed to). There is a second, two-part story, which takes place within the Final Crisis, and explains what Batman was doing during his capture and his escape and final confrontation with Darkseid. This might be worth five stars if I thought I followed it correctly, and if I had read the preceding volume, I might have. But then again, if I had, I might have reduced the score to three... This volume is definitely a personal experience.

The story running through Batman issues #676-683 and DC Universe #0 is reprinted as Batman Rip TP. It appears to continue from the preceding volume, so this story might be confusing if you haven’t read Batman: Black Glove (which I haven’t). On the other hand, as this is Grant Morrison, it might just be confusing for the sake of it. Anyway, Batman appears to be infatuated with yet another female, Jezebel Jet, while under psychological and physical attack from the Black Glove organisation. He is captured, drugged, and released onto the streets of Gotham while under the influence. He appears to hallucinate the presence of Bat-Mite (referred to occasionally as ‘might’ – a typo or a message?) and starts to ‘remember’ some 1950s adventures.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
There's no mainstream superhero character whose portrayal causes as much furore amongst comic book readers than Batman. No other hero has as many varied 'takes on' or as many opinions amongst his fans of how he should be written. The work Scott Snyder is currently doing with the character is for many the kind of story lines that they feel our hero should be finding himself in: gritty, urban, yet imaginative and mysterious - hence, the current run's success. What's important to remember though is in a 70+ year history the Bat-Man has had many incarnations and riffs on how he is portrayed; both on page and screen.
There are a number of Batman's that are burned deeply in the collective psyche and to say that there's a correct one is to miss the point. For some Batman will always be the goofy take seen in the 1960's TV show and for others the brooding and 'realistic' take in Frank Miller's 'Dark Knight Returns' and 'Batman - Year One', will always be the blueprint to work from. And that seems to be the prevalent attitude nowadays when a Batman comic is written: is he believable? We only have to look at Nolan's trio of films to see where the current zeitgeist is - you can leave all the larger than life goings on to Superman, Green Lantern and The Flash.
What's forgotten, though, is no matter what you do with him there is a weirdness and preposterousness that runs through Batman as much as any other mainstream DC hero. It's this, that I believe, Grant Morrison understands implicitly throughout his run. Look at the most famous rogues gallery in comics: Joker, Penguin, Riddler, pantomime villains, all. And when we start looking at second tier villains like Killer Croc and Clayface we are hardly in the realms of the real.
