Batman is Everywhere!

The angle Grant Morrison's arc seemed to avoid was the idea of the urban myth of Batman, is he real?  That angle is no longer avoided and Grant Morrison makes sure to address the myth aspect of Batman.  People ask if Batman is real, and if he was not Bruce Wayne will invent him.  People ask if Batman can be everywhere at once and Batman responds by being everywhere at once.  There is a war brewing between Batman Inc and Leviathan and the chess board is being set with all the pieces soon in place.  The possibility of Bruce loosing his edge as "The Worlds Greatest Detective" is foreshadowed by Bruce loosing a chess match with an old friend.  I wonder how important the chess-table will be in the coming arcs.  Grant has used many classic games as plot developments: Dominoes that become masks, cards that become the Dead Man's hand and now The Art of War meets a chess table.

I look forward to rereading this in trade once more pieces are placed the build up in this issue will be more relevant. Batman Inc seems to finally running smooth after the long wait between issues 2-3 Batman Inc seems to be very focused.  Grant Morrison on Batman remains my favorite mainstream book.

Cheers

Felt like a whole other issue one and now I wonder if Morrison goes on message boards with various names like Bruce does.

By far my favorite issue of this series. Not too fond of Cassandra Cain's new identity. "BlackBat" seems really generic in both name and costume. Love the art though. Chris Burnham has been on my radar since he did Officer Down over at Image. Hope to see more from him and more stories like this in the future.

I think the fingermen at DC do it for him.  You know what, it does feel like it is an issue #1.

Burnham does do a great job and your dead on about cain's new identity.  Why not just call her Batgirl #2...lol

    Morrison's Batman, Inc is really starting to kick off.  It's too bad there are only 3 issues left until the hiatus.  Now that he's practically got all of the Batmen in place, they're staring to make a difference.  And the bad guy from the last issue is starting to make his moves.  I really can't wait to see what happens next.  Highlight from this issue is Batman addressing what we've all been saying on the internet - doesn't this make Wayne Enterprises a target?  Apparently not as Bruce demonstr...

    Wayne Enterprises' latest press conference in Gotham City is interrupted by a mysterious new group who is led by a villain calling himself "Emoticon-Man." While a new villain emerges out of the blue, Tim Drake a.k.a. Red Robin, is appointed leader of Batman Incorporated Stealth Team (a.k.a. The Outsiders). In this chapter of Grant Morrison's Batman, we find out what Bruce Wayne/Batman has in-store for the entire world. With artwork by Chris Burnham. Wow, just wow! I think this is my favori...
