Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
12/09/2013
Chaos rips across Gotham in the second and concluding collection of Morrison's series about Batman's attempt to franchise himself around the world, a move which provokes crime syndicate the Leviathan and Ra's al Ghul's even more sinister daughter Talia. Morrison's tight but occasionally tangled writing flips from Bruce Wayne's interrogation by Jim Gordon back to the battle that followed the brainwashing of hordes of children and teenage punks by Leviathan (Frank Miller's Mutants get a cameo), which brought the city to its knees. Batman, absent for much of the story, becomes an even more distant idea here, with Nightwing and the young Damian Wayne (Bruce and Talia's son) moving to the center of the dizzying action. There are glimpses of a worldwide war, with Argentina's El Gaucho fighting the good fight, as does Jiro, the "Batman of Japan" (he gets a couple standalone adventures near the end). Burnham's art remains both highly detailed and epic in scale—the story is occasionally too tongue-in-cheek for its own good, though the Bat-cow standalone story is comic gold. All in all, it's thunderously bravura storytelling, with a notable subtext about the dangers of privatized crime fighting. (Dec.)

Meet the Author

Grant Morrison

         Grant Morrison has been working with DC Comics for more than twenty years, beginning with his legendary runs on the revolutionary titles ANIMAL MAN and DOOM PATROL. Since then he has written numerous best-sellers — including JLA, BATMAN and New X-Men — as well as the critically acclaimed creator-owned series THE INVISIBLES, SEAGUY, THE FILTH, WE3 and JOE THE BARBARIAN. Morrison has also expanded the borders of the DC Universe in the award-winning pages of SEVEN SOLDIERS, ALL-STAR SUPERMAN, FINAL CRISIS and BATMAN, INC., and he is currently reinventing the Man of Steel in the all-new ACTION COMICS.
         In his secret identity, Morrison is a “counterculture” spokesperson, a musician, an award-winning playwright and a chaos magician. He is also the author of the New York Times best-seller Supergods, a groundbreaking psycho-historic mapping of the superhero as a cultural organism. He divides his time between his homes in Los Angeles and Scotland.

    Perfect conclusion to my "Dark Knight Trilogy" Things

    Perfect conclusion to my "Dark Knight Trilogy"

    Things have changed since I wrote my previous customer review, but before we get to that, I want to discuss about this book.
    This is the final chapter to my "Dark Knight Trilogy" which I call it as Batman Domination, where I've owned 23 Batman comics before
    this one (started in 2012, ended on my 24th Birthday as a gift) and if I compare with the events of Death of the Family with this two part
    series known as Batman Incorporated, Death of the Family (featuring the Joker in it) takes place before the events of this one.The first
     two parts of this "trilogy" before Death of the Family and Batman Incorporated are the start of the New 52 and Night of the Owls events
    in case you're wondering.

    In my previous customer review (completely irrelevant to the caped crusader's saga) things have changed since then, I actually got
    Allegiant on May 31st instead of what's originally planned (which it's meant to be May 17th), then after that I have received over a dozen
    Nook Samples plus four more books, but again I no longer have them like I mentioned in my first customer review but more up to date
    than last time, my Nook samples were deleted again and those four books were taken to Goodwill once more (I have already donated
    this book months ago and my birthday's on a January but I won't tell you anything else personally).

    Date of review (updated): June 13, 2014 - five weeks after my first customer review on this site (but five months after book's purchase)
