You should know that this is the latest in a long-running series of Grant Morrison Batman stories. It makes sense on its own but a far richer way to experience this is in order. You can buy these books at your local mom and pop comic book shop. Or, barring that, I'm pretty sure you can get them online!
*Batman and Son
*The Black Glove
**The Return of Bruce Wayne
**Batman & Robin (three volumes)
These stories add up to a huge addition to the Batman mythos that stands with the very best Batman stories, and is a sheer delight to read. I highly recommend that you read them all!

Wow! There's a lot going on, here! So much so, in fact, that it's hard to tell if this book was intended to be in the regular continuity or just a sort of "Elseworlds" title. I think it's the former, though with the complete DC universe revision that just took place, any potential changes to the previously-existing universe are pretty much moot, anyway.
The set-up of the book is this: Bruce Wayne comes to the realization that a secret global terrorist organization has been setting up plans and sleeper cells of operatives all around the planet, and so he decides to establish his own world-wide network of operatives to counteract the threat. He calls the group "Batman Incorporated" and makes it public knowledge that he - Bruce Wayne - and other philanthropic rich guys and gals will be personally financing the operation.
I have a couple of problems with this plot point right from the get-go: How would Bruce Wayne know who to trust in remote parts of the world? Is it realist to think he would give them not only access to high-tech gadgets but to also let them in on his secret identity? Wouldn't Bruce Wayne be in a jeopardized position from that point on for the rest of his life? This just all seems very implausible and, frankly, out-of-character for Bruce Wayne.Read more ›
Is it great graphic literature, like Black Hole, or Maus, or Morrison's own Flex Mentallo? No, but that's not the intent here. Morrison's goal is obviously to create a ripping good adventure yarn that takes the Batman character into interesting new places, and he achieves said goal. What more could one ask from an escapist superhero fantasy?
