Batman: The Return of Bruce Wayne #5 [Annotations]


And we're finally back after an extended break to annotating "Return of Bruce Wayne" with issue #5, where Bruce Wayne reappears as a hardboiled noir detective. It's worth noting that the next issue of ROBW now appears slated to come out on November 10, after numerous books ("Road Home", "Batman and Robin" #16, "Batman: The Return", "Batman Incorporated" #1) will have already come out. Whether this will be a Cap Rebor

Annotations: ‘Batman and Robin’ #14 [Spoilers]


"Batman and Robin" #14 hits this week, with part two of "Batman and Robin Must Die!": "The Triumph of Death." Written by Grant Morrison and drawn by Frazer Irving, this issue gives us the second act of the second showdown between the Bat-clan and Simon Hurt, with the Joker acting as a force of chaos all around. Also like last issue,

Annotations: Breaking Down ‘Batman’ #702 [Spoilers]


We continue our annotations of the Grant Morrison run by breaking down "Batman" #702, by Morrison with art by Tony Daniel, complete with SPOILERS. This issue: the long-sought-after connective tissue between "Final Crisis" and "Return of Bruce Wayne", as well as the reason why we got to hear Bruce narrating all of these events. Last issue I was wondering what the po

Annotations: ‘Batman: The Return of Bruce Wayne’ #4 [Spoilers]


And we're back again, this time with yet another issue of "Batman: The Return of Bruce Wayne." This one eschews the search plot to focus purely on the story from Bruce's perspective -- or, more precisely, from the perspective of the people around Bruce, who is completely silent for this entire issue in a nod to the silent, nameless lone gunslinger (or Batarang-slinger) archetype

Annotations: ‘Batman’ #701 [Spoilers]


First off, the entire existence of this comic is sort of weird. It's a clear continuation of the "Batman R.I.P." story that ended in #681, minus the fact that #681 ended with the tail end of the framing sequence that began the arc

Annotations: ‘Batman’ #700 [Spoilers]


This week marks yet another issue of Grant Morrison's "Batman" mega-arc, and a very special one: "Batman" #700. With this being a particularly meaty and reference-heavy issue, we've decided to provide proper annotations on this milestone issue. This is part of a long series of annot

Annotations: ‘Batman: The Return of Bruce Wayne’ #2 [Spoilers]

Annotations: ‘Batman: The Return of Bruce Wayne’ #1 [Spoilers]


I'm behind on my annotations on the last arc, but anyone who's read me pre-Comics Alliance knows that I have a deep, abiding love for dissecting and analyzing Grant Morrison's extended run on Batman, in all of the forms and titles it's been taking in my previous annotations on Morrison
