no_name_'s Batman #676 - Batman R.I.P.: Midnight in the House of Hurt review

Little Spoilers...

As much as I fear the end result of the story, it does seem to be looking to be the start of something pretty incredible. I had my doubts about reading the first issue and taking the journey with Morrison that would inevitably be the end to my absolute all time favorite hero, but I'm trying really hard to look past that. If you love the bat, (or don't) this was, in my opinion, a good issue overall. If you are expecting to see him die, he doesn't/ Buy the issue that comes out in August.

Overall the artwork was incredible and aspects of the story gave an in into the character of Bruce Wayne, and glimpses of his relationships that single him out as being much softer than we are normally used to seeing him.

Pick up this story, (if you can still find it,) it's a great one.

Anyway, I was unimpressed. If you're not a regular reader it'll for the most part go over your head.

Bats and Robin take down a lame criminal and go home. Robin talks with Alfred to talk about how Bats might be losing it and needs to take a brea...

    As a set up issue this works. The tension created issue can cut through fog. I will easily carry it into next issue. We are introduced to a secret society called the Black Glove. While Robin is worried about Bruce and his recent near death experience. Also this issue explores a personal relationship Bruce is in. Personally, i do not think it will work with a civillian woman. That is just my opinion though. The book does not suffer for it at all. A very strong first chapter. I look forward to the...
