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. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

- why would Batman travel to Austria as Batman (in the batkopter) and not bruce wayne of some false name and ID on a private jet or whatever? and why would he then walk the monastary around asking questions dressed as batman? kind of stupid if you ask me
- ok Bruce went to boarding school. no biggie. I can accept that. but it is implied (visually very well I might add) that the day he returns from boarding school is the night his parents are murdered? really? kind of forcing it in there arent we? I mean so when did he spend time with his parents to miss them so much and have such guilt to become batman? maybe before boarding school? i dont know. i just felt it unessicary to add that last bit, as if to make this story so much more significant than it was. the fact mr Wisper was also his headmaster was enough for me. I didnt need the "then my Father took me out of the school and that night he and my mother were murdered" part of it.
Anyways. those 2 things didnt ruin it for me , but did force me to downgrade my opinion of the book. Otherwise its an interesting detective story. Not very deep, but interesting.
