GLX reviews Batman INC #6.

Writer - Grant Morrison
Artist - Chris Burnham
Colorist - Nathan Fairbrian

"Batman is everywhere."

Batman INC has been one of the best DC comics on the rack. It's a series that's featured fresh writing and crisp art. In this issue, different parts of Batman INC are highlighted, while Leviathan makes its move.

I've got to say that I'm not entirely hooked on Leviathan yet. Grant Morrison makes them a threat, but not one that I'm entirely invested in at this point. Still, his handling of the characters is where this comic shines. Just about every member of Batman INC is given some screen time. Fan-favorites such as Red Robin and Cassandra Cain are given cool moments, while relatively unfamiliar characters such as Nightrunner get their chance to shine. Even Alfred has a cool moment within the first few pages.

Chris Burnham's art is easy on the eyes. His art is reminiscent of Frank Quietly's work, while maintaining its own style. It's clean, emotive and organic. Nathan Fairbrian's colors are appropriate, while giving the art a nice little pop to it.

What makes Batman INC #6 so great is that there is a sense that everyone involved is a having a good time working on it. Even when things get serious, the world of Batman INC is inviting. While I'm not terribly interested in Leviathan just yet, I have to say that I'm enjoying the ride.

8* out of 10*
