      B 79% GoodNotes Conceptual art with a surrealist veneer, it improves upon reflection and provokes disbelief, recognition and outburst.

      This was one of the most divisive Batman graphic novels in several years A fair number of purists hate it and others absolutely love it image error Batman falls in love so much that he reveals his identity to Jezebel Jet hmm, does the Biblical reference give anything away which worries many of the people around him But the real story is Batman having his mind invaded and the fact that our oh so paranoid detective predicted something like this and set up safeguards Will those safeguards work Appe [...]

      Batman gets cut by one of the Black Glove s minions on the first page, drugging him in the process A little later, Jezebel Jet who wouldn t have spotted a girl named Jezebel as being linked with the villains utters a code word Dr Hurt implanted in Batmans subconscious during an isolation experiment years ago see Batman The Black Glove and the shit hits the fan The Bruce Wayne part of Batman s psyche is completely eclipsed by the Batman portion Batman goes on a rampage in a patchwork costume and [...]

      Morrison makes you work and that s not a bad thing He says comics have become too linear and mainstream and I generally agree I ve found that on my second read his books make almost total sense, on the first read almost indecipherable So let me just say that if you re interested in Morrison s Batman run, do yourself a favor and start at the beginning with Batman and Son, read slowly, and read his books consecutively if you can I don t want to play the summary game too much so I ll give a quick o [...]

    5. Sesana on said:

      The truth of the matter is that I ultimately don t know what to make of this Morrison is talented, but he s of a concept guy than an execution guy The idea of Batman going off the deep end and completely losing himself in the persona is fascinating, but the Batman of Zur En Arrh with Batmite is just wacky I just can t really take it seriously That s not to say that there aren t any highlights here I personally like this version of the Joker, and especially the explanation for the changes in his [...]

      Introduction At this point, I have been reading many Batman comics and so far, I had been enjoying every single one I had read until I came upon this comic I mean, Batman R.I.P had a pretty interesting premise written by Grant Morrison and gorgeous artwork by Tony S Daniel, who slightly rivals Jim Lee s artwork, but the story itself was a bit too slow and confusing for me to really get interested in.What is this story about Batman has always trained himself to withstand any threat that comes his [...]

      Far better then I remembered And at last re reading again this descent into madness after years, I finally understood what the f %% was going on.A tale not for anyone indeed maybe I was reading too many Marvel Disney Channel comics when I not enjoyed much this gem first time still a Marvel Zombie, but almost all House of Ideas comics post Secret Wars are so terrible for me, but for a few exceptions, that I m reading or re reading often something else in these times.And Tony Daniel s artworks th [...]

      This was pretty good in some spots, but I kind of had a hard time really getting into it It seemed to go on and on in a rambling, disjointed way I know Grant Morrison s Invisibles series is chaotic, so I m used to that and it works for me I just couldn t get into this story, I guess The illustrations were great.

    9. Brad on said:

      Casual Batman fans can learn from my experience this was impossible to follow, so much so I almost gave up halfway I needed one of those Previously, on Batman bits at the beginning to bring me up to speed Instead it was like being dropped into Harry Potter 7 with little to no understanding of who people were I know Harry and Dumbledore, but who the heck is Bellatrix Lestrange , how they got there Why aren t they at Hogwart s fighting He Who Shall Not Be Named or what was going on What in the hec [...]

    10. Kathleen on said:

      An excellent story told perfectly within its medium, this is one of the best superhero comics I ve ever read The art integrates seamlessly with the language, contributing immeasurably to the whole I found the red and black theme to be aesthetically, intellectually, and viscerally pleasing The fact that the Black Glove is playing the game six moves ahead, but it takes everyone but the Joker that long to realize that Batman is already reasoning his end game That he has, in advance of this, already [...]

    11. Cheese on said:

      This is difficult to rate It started really well Batman gets completed FUBAR d He gets mind F d and then when it starts to get interesting Morrison has a brain fart and the whole story goes to sh t The I read Morrison s work the less I like it Animal Man for example, what the hell was he thinking at the end Oh I know what I ll do, I ll put myself in the comic and make Animal Man realise he is a comic book character That will be really good, nobody will ever think of that It s so original No It [...]

      Batman, my buddy, my guy it s been a while.It s not the greatest read ever, nor a read that will inspire you to start reading Batman but it s a good read it s typical Morrison writing You either go with it or remain confused til the end, it s definitely not one you can read only having read a few Batman titles There s a whole story going on where you need to know the back story The artwork is amazing it definitely stands out so than the story Joker was done really well, Alfred was on point, wh [...]

    13. Anthony on said:

      I do really like this It messes with your head a bit, I ve read it three times now and I m still not sure I fully get it, but it s mostly resolved by the end Even with having read The Black Glove before, it still feels like there s bits I ve missed, mostly the meditative state the Thogal it s called that batman goes through Is this what happened during 52 or is just something that happened off panel Love the DC Universe short with the Joker as well Almost feels like a homage to the opening of th [...]

      Difficult to review and rate Morrison needs someone to focus him Great concept, great art, so all over the place.

    16. Lashaan Balasingam (Bookidote) on said:

      This is filled with brilliant ideas Grant Morrison does an absolutely unique job in delivering a compelling and strong story arc To truly devour this monster of a volume and savour its every little moment, you have to go through Morrison s previous runs The Black Casebook, Batman And Son, The Black Glove A lot of references are made to the previous issues and make Batman R.I.P a much fun ride.The Batman of Zur En Arrh and Batmite are probably the most funkiest thing that has ever been integrate [...]

    17. Mizuki on said:

      I like the artwork and the dialogues a lot, the story is quite okay too, I enjoy reading Batman s struggle very step of the way Sorry But I seem to have a kink for Batman s suffering Yet, I still have a few problems 1 The villains aside from the Joker who is totally awesome, as usual , the gang of villains is made up by a bunch of B rate or C rate villains who I had never heard of before but I haven t read so many Batman comics to know enough about the villains in the series, so don t kill me Do [...]

    18. Adam Bender on said:

      Morrison continues to alienate by exploring the most obscure aspects of Batman history in Batman R.I.P A major plot point requires knowledge of The Batman of Zur En Arrh, a character that appeared once in a comic from 1958 Bat Mite, who to my knowledge also hasn t appeared since the 50s, also plays a prominent role It feels as if Morrison is writing for himself and not his readers.The book makes even less sense if you haven t read all the Morrison penned Batman comics preceding this, including B [...]

      Really 3.5 stars, but only because of the art The story was wacky.

    20. Trekscribbler on said:

      Contrary to what some folks will tell you, there are plenty of differences between what draws a reader to a good Batman story or any Batman comics, for that matter versus some of the other costumed hero tales out there, but most fans can agree on one central premise what keeps the reader coming back to Batman stories is the fact that, at the core, lies a character who is driven by his own private psychology the desire to face evil at his own peril over and over and over again Batman is the real [...]

    21. Hannah Lozier on said:

      Easily one of the worst Batman arcs ever written, Batman R.I.P is a bullshit jambalaya that showcases infamous tool Grant Morrison trying to prove he has even a toddler s grasp of characterization and the English language.From start to finish, this arc is a rollercoaster but not the emotional kind No Batman R.I.P is a rollercoaster that someone else straps you into, blindfolded, and at no point do its dimensions, intentions, or thematic arcs become any clearer than in the moment you realize that [...]

    22. Sophie on said:

      Do not read this without having read Batman Son and The Black Glove first Reading this for the second time, I can t believe I actually read it the first time It s no wonder I was horribly confused back then Then, the R.I.P storyline was the let me check my notes it was the 19th Batman related book back then I read the individual issues but I count that as one book anyway I d read, if you count Crisis on Infinite Earths Although I have to admit that one didn t help me much with understanding anyt [...]

    23. JB on said:

      I really enjoyed this story I love the Alex Ross cover The book begins beautifully Batman is visiting the Joker in Arkham Assylum Joker knows about the Black Glove and tells Batman something using a deck of cards What else right He is the Joker after all The panels on these first three pages are just great Tony S Daniel nails it The use of coloring is great aswell After the prologue the story begins with an glimpse of Batman s foes in this story and the ending of Batman and Son Batman and Robin [...]

    24. Michelle Cristiani on said:

      The downside you can guess it It s all over the place, not just in timeline but in character and story development Sometimes I think it s Morrison s genius but here I think it s just weak at the joints I rarely meet a Bruce Wayne romance I like and NO, it s not because I m jealous of the girl Bruce goes positively mushy here and exposes all kinds of secrets to his new love And what do you know, she s a bad guy Too easy.The upside is that it does pay excellent tribute to what we expect Batman to [...]

    25. Michael on said:

      If you read this at the time with a lot of the supporting titles it was actually a pretty good bunch of comics Unfortunately this is just the Grant Morrison issues from the core Batman title Individually the issues are a bit of a mixed bag with some quite really good stuff, mainly late on in the run , dark, insane and sometimes cleverly funny, with some spiffy artwork Unfortunately with so many of the jigsaw pieces not included here this book makes very little sense.

    26. Steven on said:

      Batman RIP WTH Morrison s capable of doing incredible things Doom Patrol, Invisibles , but his Batman work is a bit off the rails from the get go Not recommended.

    27. Kenny on said:

      It struck me today that Grant Morrison must love opera Why Because he s constructed Batman R.I.P as if it were a grand Wagnerian Opera vast, romantic and filled with legend Grant Morrison s Batman R.I.P is a masterpiece To that point there is no doubt Batman R.I.P is a challenging read It s one of the reasons why it s such a great Batman book because it has so many layers and interpretations, not to mention ingenious storytelling methods and an enormous amount of imaginative scenes and ideas all [...]

    28. Tom Waters on said:

      It s safe to say that there s a fine line between genius and madness and in Grant Morrison s case, there is no line separating the two whatsoever My buddy Ian told me that he read an interview about Morrison where he was quoted as saying that aliens gave him his plotlines for the next ten years while he was tripping his face off on mushrooms while vacationing on a tropical island somewhere I m not sure if there s any truth to that story, but it would certainly make a lot of sense After reading B [...]

      So the BATMAN R.I.P saga wasn t as good as I had hoped it would be While the artwork is fantastic, the story was kind of hard to follow I didn t like the fact that Batman was going crazy again , I believe that he is a much better hero when he is in his right mind or as right of mind as Batman gets The best part of this series is the Joker The artist drew the Joker with a tall slender almost Marylin Manson quality The writing for the Joker was the best in this saga as well, I felt that the charac [...]

    30. Sunil on said:

      The conclusion to Grant Morrison s epic storyline is satisfying than I expected, largely because it effectively pulls together a lot of the elements from Batman Batman and Son and Batman The Black Glove, particularly weird shit that didn t seem important at the time, showing that he really was leading up to this all along, which I appreciated I know that Morrison s whole deal is that basically EVERYTHING IS CANON, and since I don t know EVERYTHING, I had no idea what was original and what was r [...]
