"Morrison and Burnham continue to deliver a beautifully written and drawn comic in the form of "Batman Incorporated."—Comic Book Resources

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.

More About the Author

Talia Al-Ghul’s Leviathan is taking over Gotham and only Bruce Wayne’s Batman Inc. can stop them!
Noel
Given the very origins of Batman, it;s no surprise that Robin and his family don't fare well in the DC Universe.
Gary Zenker
I can only imagine what this book would have read like if they had just let it be out-of-continuity.

After seven years of doing Batman (about six years if you consider the comic wasn't published the first few months of the New 52), Grant Morrison's run on the Caped Crusader comes to an end. What originally started out to be a seventeen issues worth up to R.I.P, has now turned into a sprawling epic of Dick Grayson becoming Batman with Damien Wayne as Robin, to Bruce Wayne hopping through time and space, to finally becoming Batman again and starting a world wide corporation of Bat-people against international criminal agency known as Leviathan. Batman Incorporated volume 2 ends it all on a big action and emotional climax, but the final conclusion might or might not leave you a bit disappointed.

BATMAN INCORPORATED VOL.2: GOTHAM'S MOST WANTED collects issues #7-13 and BATMAN INCORPORATED SPECIAL #1. Continuing from volume 1, Batman looks to have been beaten by Talia's bodyguard. Leviathan looks like it has Gotham and Batman Inc. on the ropes of defeat, but a member of the Bat-family steps up to save everyone with all their might to turn the tide of battle, which leads into this characters death. With little time to morn, the character's passing pushes Batman enough that he is dead set to end this war with Leviathan and Talia Al Ghul once and for all. Seeing as Talia will not stop unless she or Batman die, will Batman finally break his code of not killing to stop her?

Much like the previous volume, Morrison focuses on action and tying up loose ends of his run on Batman, and it turns out to be a pretty good straightforward read without any of Morrison's hidden messages or metaphors to confuse readers. So if you are completely up to date on Morrison's long epic, you'll know what is going on. There isn't much to say without giving things away but it's pretty much Batman Inc.

Grant Morrison wraps up his years of writing various Batman titles with the story told in Batman Incorporated Vol. 2: Gotham's Most Wanted. Bruce Wayne (Batman) and his son Damian (Robin) are in the final showdown with Damian's mother, Talia Al Ghul and her criminal organization Leviathan. With Gotham held hostage, Batman is forced into a tragic showdown with Talia. Meanwhile, the other members of Batman, Inc. are in battles of their own. Without revealing spoilers, this story contains some life-altering events for several members of Batman's team. It is a superb story, and a great pay-off to fans who have followed Morrison's run. Seeds that were planted years ago come to fruition. I'm really looking forward to seeing how Batman and his group move forward in future stories.

Along with the main storyline, this collection includes several back-up features starring various members of Batman, Inc. They are okay, but not necessary to understand the overall story arc.

I highly recommend Gotham's Most Wanted.

I received a preview copy of this book from DC Comics in exchange for an honest review.

Format: Hardcover
Talia Al-Ghul’s Leviathan is taking over Gotham and only Bruce Wayne’s Batman Inc. can stop them! This is it, the final battle between good and evil, father and mother - and what happens when parents fight? The kids suffer. Gotham’s Most Wanted is a kitchen sink soap opera played out as high melodrama between superheroes. It’s also Grant Morrison’s final book in his seven year Batman run and it’s as amazing a finale as you’d hope.

I highly recommend re-reading the first volume to remind yourself how it ended because the second volume picks up immediately after, mid-action sequence and barrels straight on through to the bitter end. The pacing in this story is insane as Morrison throws massive scenes at the reader, one after the other. Some members of Batman Inc. have already been killed by the Abomination – another of Talia’s experiments with Bruce’s DNA and hers, though this one turned out far more physically monstrous than Damian – while Gotham’s children have been brainwashed into becoming homicidal maniacs, fighting what remains of Batman Inc and the GCPD in the streets alongside Leviathan’s forces!

This book has one of the year’s most talked about moments in comics: the death of Damian (and no it’s not a spoiler when it makes international headlines!). Morrison goes full circle from introducing Damian to readers in his first book, Batman and Son, to taking him away in his final one. You can see what a great writer Morrison is in the way he’s developed Damian over the years. Re-read those early books and you’ll notice how insanely evil Damian is when he first arrives. He nearly kills Tim and beats Alfred, refusing to listen to anything Bruce has to say, and even killing one of Gotham’s lesser costumed crooks.

The Morrison run on Batman is fantastic from start to finish, and this ending captures what he talks about during the entire 7 years. Batman is forever, he doesn't end. GREAT book.

There are a lot of gushing quotes on the front and back cover including this one from the New York Times, “A Fitting Finale… A Satisfying-And-Surprising End to the Batman/Talia War”. Coming from someone who has read through the entire Batman Incorporated series I found the ending neither surprising nor satisfying. Maybe it’s because I’ve read SO many high stakes Batman stories recently where The Dark Knight is pushed to his limit that it no longer has any real impact anymore. When Batman Incorporated first started I was pretty excited particularly with the idea of putting focus on the various Batmen from around the world. Think Again. This is all about the Bruce Wayne Batman with the other characters as window-dressing.

Picking up from the last volume Talia Al-Ghul’s Leviathan continues to menace Batman and Gotham City having now taken over Wayne Towers. Turns out the big heavy in the mask she’s been travelling with is her OTHER son, this one having been born adult sized in the belly of a whale carcass. This is where I start to get confused (trademark of Grant Morrison). Talia wants to detonate a device called the Oroboro which will, I believe, destroy seven cities but she needs the trigger which I guess she somehow lost. The big event of this story arc is the death of a character that I grew to like very much and the death was handled horribly. It seems like a thing with Morrison that he likes to kill off characters in the most forgettable way possible.

I love about half the stuff Morrison produces and this collection falls into the OTHER half. I didn’t hate it but the payoff was not worth the journey. Chris Burnham is a fine artist but I always get the sense he’s desperately trying to emulate Frank Quitely but with very uneven results.
