Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
An odyssey for one of the most iconic figures in comics stretches from prehistory to the end of time, revisiting and reimagining Batman's mythology through a complex narrative. Writer Morrison and a team of artists pick up from the end of Morrison's Final Crisis and Batman: RIP. Bruce Wayne is lost in time after killing Darkseid, a godlike being of pure evil. Piecing together the memories of his past that he's lost and slowly realizing he's been turned into a human booby trap meant to destroy the universe by Darkseid, Bruce is pulled through eras of Gotham City's history that include confrontations with cavemen, witch hunters, pirates, cowboys, and 20th-century cultists. These adventures culminate in a return to the present where he must rely on his fellow superheroes to save him from Darkseid's curse. Morrison's story is designed to add to Batman's aura as a timeless, mythical hero, but the time jumps and Bruce's amnesia sometimes create an uneven narrative. The story also asks readers to possess a wealth of familiarity with the character's decades-long history, making the book not as accessible to newer fans. Different artists—all strong, colorful storytellers—give each time period its own mood. (Feb.)

I'm not much of a comic reader but the premise of the story sounded very appealing to me so I took my chance with this on. The storylines started out quite entertaining but as it went along it sort of stretched out into a predictable arc. In some instances it jumps from timeline to timeline and one would think this would lead to a satisfying ending but I was left very unpleased with the conclusion. I gave it 4 stars since I enjoyed the artwork a lot but if you're a veteran comic book reader you might find this story lacking strength.
