It's been coming for a while, and now it is finally here - the Return of Bruce Wayne.
This has been an absolutely epic series of books that began way back with Final Crisis with the death of Batman/Bruce Wayne at the hands of Darkseid. Since then, there have been many books dealing with what has happened to the characters in the Batman universe, and how they are dealing with the loss of the talismanic Dark Knight. And i have to say these spin off titles are well worth investing in! Mainly because they give you an idea of the importance of the role of Batman in Gotham, and the Justice League, but also the impact he has had on the lives of those people around him.
These books include;
Batman and Robin: Batman Reborn (Batman & Robin)
Batman vs. Robin (Batman & Robin)
Batman & Robin Vol. 3: Batman Must Die! Deluxe Edition (due out later in 2011)

In a separate run;
Batman: Streets of Gotham: Hush Money
ASIN:1848569793 Batman: The Streets of Gotham: Leviathan v. 2]]
Batman: Streets of Gotham 3: The House of Hush due out later in 2011

On it's own;
Batgirl: Batgirl Rising

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting episode in the latest Batman saga 2 Mar 2014
By No More Mr. Mice Guy TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
This storyline runs through DC Comics’ Batman – The Return of Bruce Wayne double-sized issues #1-6. It is an interesting episode in the latest Batman saga, providing you are following the storyline. Bruce Wayne has been blasted back in time by Darkseid, and as he jumps closer to home, the Omega Force is building up in him, so that he will explode when he reaches his own time. The Justice League is trying to track him down to stop him succeeding in getting back…

The Chapters are –
#1: Shadow on Stone
#2: Until the End of Time
#3: The Bones of Bristol Bay
#4: Dark Night, Dark Rider
#5: Masquerade
#6: The All-Over

This is definitely a Grant Morrison story, as it involves a station at the End of the Universe, Rip Hunter, Booster Gold and Skeets (I thought Booster was dead and Skeets had turned evil – have I missed a storyline somewhere? Or has 52 been cancelled?), Chronovores – or Hyperfauna as they are called here – and Bruce trapping the Justice League 10 minutes from the end of the universe. Jonah Hex and the Black pirate guest star, and Vandal Savage turns up in several places, though never quite named, and Bruce has to die again to save the world…

The story and art are excellent, though not exceptional, for a Batman volume. The episodic lost-in-time stories don’t work for me however, though the interspersed JLA at the end of time are up there with the insanity that Grant Morrison used to provide for them in the good old days. Bruce Wayne without Batman doesn’t really exist, and it shows here.
