'Whatever happened to the caped crusader?' Is a beautifully constructed story, with references to different eras of batman history all melded together into a captivating narrative. The plot is that batman is dying, and at his funeral, multiple villains argue that they killed batman, and explain how. In the end, I'll admit that I cried, but any batman fan will also at least be touched by this beautiful comic. There are also a couple of seperate stories featuring the riddler, and batman and the joker. The first is intriguing but doesn't quite measure up to the other stories, bit the second is both interesting, and also a hilarious take on the world of batman! Either way, this is well worth the price, and is reccomeded for any bat-fan! 9.5/10

The artwork in this book is wonderful and beautifully done, I think they got Batman right on; mysterious and dark, just the way I like him drawn.

I love how your get multiple stories all bound up in one, and you get a different perspective on Batman and how he thinks. Great read, totally worth the money!

What happens when you have a character that is no longer the child of an archetype, but rather becomes an archetype himself?

The answer to this riddle that is not quite one like Edward Nigma's, is that you get something or someone like Batman. Because I am familiar with a lot of Neil Gaiman's writing, I suspected that his slant on Batman would involve enveloping him, or placing him within the realms of mythology and storytelling proper. If these are some of your expectations as well, you will not be disappointed.

Here is an overview of the structure of The Deluxe Edition. First, you have the two-part story of "Whatever Happened to the Caped Crusader?" prefaced by one of Neil Gaiman's very lovely Introductions (he really seems to *love* Batman), followed by some of his earlier Batman comics: a rough-drawn almost Stoppard-like meta-narrative where Batman and the Joker wait backstage to cast a crime scene in "A Black and White World," a misguided agent's attempt to get to know Poison Ivy in "Pavane," a television show host's attempt to humanize mad criminals of Gotham City in "Original Sins," and wedged between the latter is a marvelous monologue on the reflection of Batman's "good old Kitsch and Camp days" by the one and only Edward Nigma aka The Riddler in "When is a Door." All of these very much match the two-issue story that Neil Gaiman created literally exploring the Batman mythos.

As for the main storyline itself, I will admit that is was predictable -- or at least it was for me if only because I have read a lot of Gaiman's other works. In "Whatever Happened to the Caped Crusader?" Batman is dead in a coffin and a Rogue's Gallery of friends, allies, and enemies come to pay their respects and tell their versions of how he exactly died.

Yeah, so I got this having read gaiman's other work only to discover that it's just not very good. I've read a decent amount of comics and, while ambitious, this just does not work. Avoid it.
