I dunno B&R seemed a little R.I.P.-y to me. Not bad, though.

It's Morrison, it has been a little RIPy since issue one.

If Morrison goes all RIP while Cameron Stewart is on the book, I'll probably have to change my pants after I read it. :D

I should've waited 'til then. The Tan artwork left me confused upon first reading in a couple places.

Tan sucks and should never be allowed to draw comics again.

Awful story, the epitome of Grant Morrison's emperor has no clothes incomprehensibility masked in pseudo-intellectualism.

Batman and Robin was good because it was nothing like R.I.P.

Your constant name and avatar changes have me feeling confused. Are you the one I give my monthly check to in exchange for magic peas? I feel night terrors coming on.

did you read from 655 or did you just pick up when RIP started? and you are complaining about Final Crisis not RIP with that criticism. RIP made perfect sense if you have studied the fuck out of some Batman.

I read the first 2 arcs, then dropped it, then read R.I.P.

You call me pretentious, when you're the one defending this piece of shit!

Let's use up 10 thread pages agreeing on this--heads in explode and then implode.

I don't google Morrison and go into threads half cocked about the fact that his name is mentioned and everyone in the thread is an ass for not liking him. The Black Glove is the finest Batman arc in YEARS. I don't regularly recommend morrison's run to people, but I will sure as hell tell people who are trying to figure out B&R that 655 is the starting point. And much like your silly man love for Bendis, I have silly man love for Batman and will defend even mediocre stories if I so choose.
