I’m not really sure what to say about this instalment of Batman Inc. It was great to have Morrison back after the break, but really, this was just one big action sequence, which, whilst awesome to read, doesn’t give you much to talk about.
I will say that is was great to see Bruce really cut loose with the violence, and that the revelation about what The Heretic really looks like was a real shocker, I almost feel sorry for the poor kid. I also really liked Dick getting a degree of revenge for Damian (and Knight for, er, the old Knight too). I miss that era of Batman and Robin so bloody much. Oh yeah, and the stuff about how Spyral aren’t actually evil and how they want to shut down Batman Inc was very interesting too, that woman is obviously Kathy Kane Batwoman right? Right?
Burnham’s art was once again fantastic, he’s grown so much as an artist throughout his run, I can’t wait to see what he’ll do next. So yeah, not much to say, I’m very excited for the next issue, and for Morrison to wrap up his epic run. I may not have liked it at first, but ever since Bruce died, it’s been great, one of the all-time greats. Oh yeah, and Talia’s dialogue on the first few pages? ‘Why can’t he admit defeat? Why won’t he stop?’, well, that just sums up Batman doesn’t it? He will never stop.
