A readers guide to Grant Morrison's Batman is a great help if you are looking at the whole series.
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?
For reader's of Morrison's run thus far, you'll be familiar with the concept of Batman deciding to broaden his reach by recruiting "Batmen" in different areas of the world to combat a variety of large scale threats. While it gets off to a promising start, the run is unfortunately brought to a slightly premature end due to the reboot of the DC line (via The New 52). Fortunately for the readers, Morrison was able to quickly wrap up his story, providing some sense of closure for the volume.
For those unfamiliar with Morrison's run, I'd recommend not starting here. The stories are densely packed, and require a healthy amount of reader involvement in order to really understand what is going on. That's not to say someone with no Morrison experience couldn't enjoy this story, just that he doesn't go out of his way to let new readers in.
I thought the art was very strong in this volume, particularly by Yanick Paquette and Frazier Irving.
We have the feeling of being played. Over the years, Morrison has introduced new characters, made us love them and he coldly murdered them, all for the sake of his story. And lets face facts, we just let him use our hearts any way he wanted to. Batman's battle with his former love, Talia isn't prolonged but done well. Bruce's arrest and interview with Jim Gordon is a plot device that works well. In the areas where the story could have dragged, it doesn't. Bruce declares Batman is dead, and the cliffhanger shrieks, "Not so fast!".
In all I recommend you buy the book and enjoy this big ending to an epic series.
