Batman #702

The days leading up to Batman's "death" are finally explored. See, if you wait long enough Grant Morrison will give you an explanation. Maybe not a great explanation, but at least something. You only need to needlessly wait months until the story in question is long over and it doesn't really matter anymore. As it stands the story is a solid one, and downright linear for a Morrison tale, but the real question behind this "Missing Chapter" of Batman R.I.P. is where the hell has it been for all these months? There are also a couple of really good lines describing Superman, his abilities, and his larger world, from Batman's point of view. Better late than never, and worth a look.

[DC $2.99]

I will read it but F*** Morrison. He is such a hack in an industry that needs GOOD storytellers and not ego driven writers who think they are adding something new to the character instead of tearing them down. I just hate his garbage so much. It's like he is laughing at anyone who is a fan of these characters like I have been my whole life.

I definitely won't try and defend Morrison, as I've had many issues with where he's taken Batman and the types of stories he tells, but for a Morrison story this is better than most.
