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. Tony S. Daniel decided to be a comics artist in the 8th grade, and he hasn t looked back since. After making his professional debut in 1993 on Comico s "The Elementals," he has contributed work to Marvel s "X-Force" and Image s "Spawn: Bloodfeud" as well as writing and illustrating his creator-owned titles "Silke," "The Tenth," "Humankind," "Adrenalynn" and "F5" the last two of which led him, for a time, into the alternate reality known as Hollywood. After being lured back into comics to work with writer Geoff Johns on DC s TEEN TITANS, Daniel went on to draw the final three issues of FLASH: THE FASTEST MAN ALIVE before landing his dream job pencilling the Dark Knight s adventures in BATMAN. The Batcave is, he reports, surprisingly cozy."

The story also ties in with Final Crisis at the end and bridges the gap between the two story lines and also enhances Batman's appearance during Final Crisis showing us in more detail what he endures. A fantastic story, great art and a real landmark piece of Batman history, and if thats not enough to draw you in then how about a book that also contains Joker in his own little mystery, what does he really think of the Black Glove and Batman?
Contains Batman #676 - #683, DC Universe #0
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.Read more ›
