Boring 0

The Good   The only good thing is the title, if this was called the return of anybody else I wouldn't read and its hard for me to say this because I'm a batfan.   The Bad   The story is boring this box that is supposed to help the story come together doesn't get enough importance to make me care about it. Since he is jumping through time you only get to see most of the characters once, which makes it almost impossible to remember or care about them. This is a problem because here the blonde girl...

The weakest so far... 0

Okay, I've loved this mini-series. I think it's been great, if incredibly.....confusing, but hey, that's kinda what you get with a Batman story in recent years. That said, this issue....well, this issue was dull. Not a hell of a lot happened, and the Jonah Hex involvement was clearly just to drum up the interest of the 8 people that have seen the movie. He's literally a non-factor in this. He comes in, does a whole lot of nothing, then leaves. The whole story revolves around Vandal Savage trying...

Dark Night, Dark Rider 0

Grant Morrison continues his tale of Bruce Wayne's return through time, and this month its a stop in the cowboy days. And it does not disappoint. Morrison's writing is fantastic as ever and this month he's joined by another great artist, Georges Jeanty (Buffy the Vampire Slayer). He may not be the best artist that Morrison has worked with, but he's not the worst.  His art is a bit more cartoony than most, but that doesn't mean it doesn't look good, because it does look damn good. Story-wise this...

Review:The Return of Bruce Wayne #4 of 6 0

The Story  A family in the Wild West suffers horrifying brutality at the hands of men in search of a mysterious box with a very familiar symbol on it. The crime leaves one woman praying for an dark angel of retribution, and fortunately for her, there's one man who fits that description regardless of era. The Good Well first of all it's Cowboy Bruce Wayne...,  and Grant Morrison really delivers on the writing front. While Jeanty's art is also very intuitive of the period, and even the way h...

The Dark Knight Rides 0

Finally, an issue of the Return of Bruce Wayne feels like it delivers. By no means has the series been bad thus far, but it has been underwhelming as every issue up until now hasn't quite lived up to the expectations given by the cover and the solicitation. Our prehistoric Batman was a brief and shallow affair that left a lot to be desired. The Puritan-age Batman was more like it but lost itself somewhat in Lovecraftian weirdness. The promise of a pirate Batman was left unfulfilled when we didn'...

Cowboy Batman 0

I thought this issue was good. I liked how morrison introduced Batman as gods truest darkest angel of retribution. and i got a chill sent down my spine. I have been waiting for a moment like this for a while now and its just like how i imagined it. I didn't expect the involvement of the character of Thomas wayne in to the story. I'm talking about the black sheep "devil worshipper" thomas wayne as told about in "Batman & Robin. I think Morrison is hinting that thomas wayne and Doctor hurt are...

The Disillusionment Continues 0

I am in the minority that is just not impressed with this mini series. We've essentially reached the turning point in which Batman starts to take on more of the characteristics of Batman, but still, month after month, I drag my feet to read this. As another reviewer pointed out, if not for the Bruce Wayne name, this comic would not find it's way into my shopping bag. I understand Grant Morrison's style is one of gradual plot development and cryptic story elements. I like Grant Morrison, I really...

Digging Deeper in Bruce's Past #4 0

Grant Morrison is acclaimed because he is one of the few writers who really push the medium to its potential. Part of the reason he can do this is because of his knowledge in the Occult.   There will always be three types of readers that walk away from a Grant Morrison story: (1) Those that had no idea what happened and did not like it, (2) Those that had no idea or little idea what really happened but enjoyed the story and (3) those who understand the messages between the lines.  ...

Back on form 0

Once again let me preface this for you, I read this once when it first came out and then each time another issue came out I've re-read this issue to refresh myself.  So now I've got all 6 issues and I'm re-reading the whole lot and it's finally starting to make some sense.    Now's the time for me to review them.      So this issue get's back on form, a bit slow going with the introduction of Hex but it establishes a few things around the 'box'. I loved the interrogation of Catherine, it made li...
