Read full description of the books:
This was one of the most divisive Batman graphic novels in several years. A fair number of purists hate it and others absolutely love it.
Batman falls in love so much that he reveals his identity to Jezebel Jet (hmm, does the Biblical reference give anything away?) which worries many of the people around him. But the real story is Batman having his mind invaded and the fact that our oh so paranoid detective predicted something like this and set up safeguards. Will those safeguards work? Appearances by The Club of Villains as well as Bat-Mite and The Joker. Expect a nightmarish landscape as Batman's mind is invaded.
What I found out after reading this graphic novel was that there were three stories before this one that should be read (it doesn't say on this volume about previous volumes). In order they are: “Batman: Batman and Son”, “Batman: The Resurrection of Ra's Al Ghul” and “Batman: Black Glove”. A fifth follow up covers the whole JLA team and was titled “Final Crisis”.
The overall tale was done by Grant Morrison, who loves to do his funky, psychedelic setups and some might argue he overdid it or that it's too confusing. I read Morrison's Batman Arkham Asylum before this one and found it to be overly confusing at times as well.
Regardless, this might be a graphic novel you'll need to go through more than once to fully appreciate. I prefer it over “Arkham Asylum” which focused too much on the mad dreams. That said, on a second and even third reading I appreciated the graphic novel more. A bit of Wiki on historical Batman references didn't hurt either.
Tony S Daniel in the main artist. I'd say the artwork is a slight notch up from “Arkham Asylum” which was too psychedelic at times for my tastes.
Morrison mines the little bits of Batman history especially from the Silver Age yet he doesn't follow the true threads of those pieces so purists will be angered. Once more as a warning a lot of the “clever Morrison” moments may be lost to more casual readers or people who don't spend the time doing some research and then reading it again.
ARTWORK PRESENTATION: B plus to A minus; CHARACTERS/DIALOGUE: B plus; STORY/PLOTTING: B (for those who didn't read the previous graphic novels & Morrison's style can be confusing to some); NIGHTMARISH LANDSCAPING FOCUSES: A minus; OVERALL GRADE: B plus (higher if you read the previous graphic novels); WHEN READ: end of June to mid July 2012.
So if you didn't read the previous three volumes (like me) it's confusing how they got into Batman's mind and that is revealed in “Black Glove”.
“Zur-en-arrh” is the trigger word set up in early comics to break Batman down. It is the eventual reason for Batman's strange costume at the end which offended some people in that it appeared he was dressed in Joker colors. Note that said outfit was from a very early Batman sci fi tale of The Silver Age when Batman met a double of himself.
Some may feel cheated that Batman's death doesn't happen in this volume but in the later “Final Crisis”.
Dr. Hurt's true identity may be in reference to an old strip from the Silver Age as well.
