And reading Grant Morrison, more than anything else, is an act of trust that his project for the character is generationally definitive."--"USA Today's "PopMatters
"The most fun I've had reading a comic book.""--MTV Geek"

There are bonus features, don't get me wrong. All of the cover/character sketches from previously released volumes are here, along with previously unpublished sketch work from the title's New 52 run (something tells me DC knew this volume was coming when they produced those hardcovers). However, the amount of new bonus material is extremely minimal. At least a spotlight on action figures created from the series would have been nice, as several previous Absolute volumes have done.
At the end of the day, these are petty nitpicks. If you love "Batman Incorporated", and enjoy the Absolute format, there is no reason not to go for this. Easily the most enjoyable reading experience you are likely to have with this series. The paper is thick and smooth, and DC did a remarkable job with the binding, especially for such a thick volume (clocks in at nearly 700 pages)--at no point do you have to force the book wide open just to see the entire page. When investing this much in a product, these are important factors to consider, but DC seems to be well aware of this.
