Review

 
“[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.

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!

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!

When this was coming out monthly with other events going on it was a bit confusing but gathered here is one place streamlined it is great and much easier to follow. Grant Morrison's style takes some getting used to but once you do it's a great ride.

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
