The All-Over: ‘Return of Bruce Wayne’ #6 [Annotations]

batman-robw-end

Batman: The Return of Bruce Wayne #6 finally drops this week. As the issue title "The All-Over " suggests, Morrison's grand Batman epic so far seems to have come to a fairly final conclusion. Or so I'd think if I didn't know Incorporated was coming up...

Black Mass: Batman and Robin #16 [Annotations]

bmrob16dylux-7-copy

This week, Grant Morrison's run on Batman and Robin concludes with the final chapter, "Black Mass." Since Return of Bruce Wayne #6 isn't coming out until next week, the exact details of the end of Bruce's journey through time and the true nature of Barbatos will have to go unanswered for now...

return-of-bruce-wayne-5-002

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...

batman702legioncps001

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...

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

prv5876pg1

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]

batman701legioncps001

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...

The next link in this summer's Bat-chain comes with this week's "Batman: The Return of Bruce Wayne" #3 by Grant Morrison, Yanick Paquette, Michel Lacombe and Nathan Fairbairn. It's a relatively straightforward issue this week, although fairly referential; it's also a great deal of fun...

Annotations: ‘Batman’ #700 [Spoilers]

batman700-001

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...
