Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Make no mistake about it: This graphic novel marks the end of Bruce Wayne as Batman, but writer Grant Morrison isn't despairing: "It's so much better than death. People have killed characters in the past, but to me, that kind of ends the story! I like to keep the story twisting and turning. So what I am doing a fate worse than death; things that no one would expect to happen to these guys at all." And twist and turn we do as this comic book arc unfurls its mind-boggling surprises.
Publishers Weekly

Batman is pushed past the edge of sanity in this spectacular story that mixes icy mind games and passionate outbursts. A club of criminal masterminds, the Black Glove, has an elaborate plot to make Bruce Wayne/Batman self-destruct by convincing him that all his friends and lovers have betrayed him and that his most trusted memories are false. As clever in their scheming as the villains are, however, they have no idea how thorough Batman has been in planning ways to protect his obsessions; consequently, the action is fractured between scenes of what is really happening, what might be happening, what probably isn't happening, etc. This premise gives scriptwriter Morrison and principal artist Daniel a chance to review key episodes and images from the Caped Crime Fighter's long career-including, of course, numerous encounters with the Joker, who's too chaotic to be happy in any organization like the Black Glove, but who struts through the action wielding sardonic humor and two straight razors. Whether Batman winds up (or ever was) totally sane is unresolved, but he's a fascinating protagonist in this sweeping, emotionally draining saga. (Feb.)

    RIP is NOT THE SENDOFF Bruce Wayne deserved

    old enough to have had my life thrown into upheaval with the reboots done in the 80s on the Trinity (and aquaman!). Purchase knowing this is a collection and not a stand alone graphic novel and therefore you will never be able to get every step of the story and there will be points in the book where you'll be thinking you're missing something. overall an intelligent read, a gripping story due to the MUCH HYPED conclusion pending. Overall feeling: Reboots are gonna happen, Conclusion is lacking, Morrison has written better Batman stories, art is quality not elite, leaves you expecting BATMAN RESURRECTION??

    AWESOME!

    This book is very very good.
    Even though it does become confusing toward the end but it gets to the point.
    But like I said AWESOME.

    The End...?

    Though the ambiguity is fierce, it fits perfectly with this fast-paced, high octane thrill ride. If you thought The Joker was sick before, wait til you see him in Batman R.I.P. Who is the Black Glove? That's a great question. What's real and what isn't? Well, you'll have to read this and come to your own conclusions. Highly Recommended.

    highly recommended

    Easily one of the most original batman stories in years. Only snag is if you didn't read any of grant morrison's other work, like batman & son, and the black glove, then you will be very lost. other than that, it is a very good read

    One of the Best Batman books ever.

    Tony Daniel brings everything to the table and it gets better. Grant Morrison executes his plot in a way that kept me in suspense. I loved the Story and its many Themes. Most amazing panels ever!!

    Morrison continues to try to confuse readers!

    Many readers say the like Grant Morrison's "smart" writing style. I think they're lying trying to look "smart" to others. Its almost impossible for me to believe that readers actually followed this storyline all the way through. Morrison does everything in his power to throw things at the reader whether they stick or not, he doesn't care. The plot, whatever plot there was, was a tangled mess. The only reason this book isn't rated lower is Tony Daniel's art. I remember his art very differently from his work on X-Force in the '90s. I really enjoyed his Batman here. It was good, the writing was really bad. Actually it was unacceptable for a DC Comics flagship title.
