Book Description

June 22 2010 Batman

Tying into his other blockbuster stories of 2008 Final Crisis and Batman: The Ressurection of Ra's Al Ghul, the legendary Grant Morrison confronts readers with the unthinkable...the death of The Dark Knight.

The troubled life of Bruce Wayne seems to spin out of control when his releationship with the mysterious Jezebel Jet deepens. Soon Bruce Wayne drops out completely, having seemingly become the victim of mental illness and abandoning his Batman identity for a life on the streets of Gotham City. Capitalizing on the fall of their greatest foe, the Club of Villains begin a crime spree through the streets of Gotham that threatens to bring the city to its knees.

 

This volume collects Batman #676-683 and DC Universe #0.

“[Grant Morrison is] comics’s high shaman.”—WASHINGTON POST
 
“[A] comic legend.”—ROLLING STONE

About the Author

Grant Morrison has been working with DC Comics for more than twenty years, beginning with his legendary runs on the revolutionary titles ANIMAL MAN and DOOM PATROL. Since then he has written numerous best-sellers — including JLA, BATMAN and New X-Men — as well as the critically acclaimed creator-owned series THE INVISIBLES, SEAGUY, THE FILTH, WE3 and JOE THE BARBARIAN. Morrison has also expanded the borders of the DC Universe in the award-winning pages of SEVEN SOLDIERS, ALL-STAR SUPERMAN, FINAL CRISIS and BATMAN, INC., and he is currently reinventing the Man of Steel in the all-new ACTION COMICS.
         In his secret identity, Morrison is a “counterculture” spokesperson, a musician, an award-winning playwright and a chaos magician. He is also the author of the New York Times best-seller Supergods, a groundbreaking psycho-historic mapping of the superhero as a cultural organism. He divides his time between his homes in Los Angeles and Scotland.


Tony S. Daniel decided to be a comics artist in the 8th grade, and he hasn’t looked back since. After making his professional debut in 1993 on Comico’s The Elementals, he has contributed work to Marvel’s X-Force and Image’s Spawn: Bloodfeud as well as writing and illustrating his creator-owned titles Silke, The Tenth, Humankind, Adrenalynn and F5 — the last two of which led him, for a time, into the alternate reality known as Hollywood.
         After being lured back into comics to work with writer Geoff Johns on DC’s TEEN TITANS, Daniel went on to draw the final three issues of FLASH: THE FASTEST MAN ALIVE before landing his dream job pencilling the Dark Knight’s adventures in BATMAN. The Batcave is, he reports, surprisingly cozy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible Book But... March 2 2010
Format:Hardcover
Yes, quite the incredible graphic novel indeed! I love Grant Morrison's work and he definitely shines in this one as well.

HOWEVER, do the research - you MUST read the 3 books following up into this one or else you'll be a little lost in a few passages (quite a few to be honest). Any reviews knocking this book because of lack of clarity or some kind of randomness/disconnectedness in the storyline is most probably a product of someone who did not read the following books prior to this one:

1) Batman and Son
2) Batman: The Resurrection of Ra's Al Ghul
3) Batman: The Black Glove

All of them are quintessential to the Batman R.I.P. storyline - and must-haves for Batman fans who like to see a good psychological rundown of a super hero who is (above-all) a human being. Great writing, great artwork, and thus, a great book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Read July 21 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I didn't think that I would say this, but I thoroughly enjoyed reading this Batman story arc. I won't give anything away but Morrison is able to weave up the reader through a lot of psychological twists and turns. I would buy this along with FINAL CRISIS in order to get the full picture of Bruce Wayne's final days as the Dark Knight

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome! Aug. 5 2009
By Michael
Format:Hardcover
I think Grant Morrison's Batman RIP was a gripping read from start to finish. I have been a big fan of Grant Morrison's latest Batman run, and I feel Morrison is such a sophisticated and innovative storyteller, one always willing to push the boundaries of the comic book medium and the conventions of the superhero epic.

I'll admit that Batman RIP isn't for everyone, only because it's obvious this story isn't meant for those who like their superhero stories so obvious and cut & dry. As long as you're willing to do some digging and thinking, everything you need to know about this extended Batman story is right there on the page for you to discover, contemplate and understand.

As I write this review, I have begun to read Morrison's Batman & Robin...and i can't wait for more. I'm just glad I have his brilliant book in my collection.

Highly recommended!
