Batman incorporated volume 2 issue 8
Batman Incorporated, Volume 2: Gothams Most Wanted by Grant MorrisonIm excluding the last two part arc in this book because I dont care about Japans Batman. Hes okay, semi-interesting backstory, but I just do not give a flying fuck. It just wasnt something I read and was like OMG saying that, excluding the okay story there, the rest of this book is a damn near masterpiece. It really banks on you reading the first rise of the leviathan arc from volume 1 to get the full emotion here. Talia is the villain and never has she been more...evil? I mean I know shes been wicked since forever but holy hell the things she does here. I mean...just fucked up as hell. This story is a few years old but I wont spoil what happens but when a certain someone dies all hell breaks lose and the final fight for the city of gotham is underway.
What I liked: Emotion. Grant usually writes stories I cant stand with stilted dialog, and weak pacing. From volume 1 into this volume the pacing is near perfect. The stakes are high, the emotional fallout is amazing, the fights are intense, the dialog is near perfect for the situation. Everything works here. I loved the 20+ fight with Damien and his clone. I loved Batmans Do you hear that? moment. I loved Dicks What happened? He was fine a minute ago... and the We were the best team ever moment. Oh so many wonderful moments, all written and drawn to near perfection.
What I didnt like: Like I said, the last two part arc here feels like a side story. Its not horrible but forgettable.
This is what I wish Grant wrote ALL the time. I was on the edge of my seat the ENTIRE arc. From volume 1-2 this is how you build and create a satisfying ending with a ton of stakes that pay off. Bravo Grant, you finally made a book I can call a masterpiece.
