About the Author

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.

Since 1988 he’s drawn The Greens (self-published), Blackheart, Missionary Man, Shimura, Inaba, ten shorts for Paradox Press, six shorts for Vertigo, FLEX MENTALLO, 20/20 VISIONS, BATMAN: THE SCOTTISH CONNECTION, THE KINGDOM: OFFSPRING, JLA: EARTH 2, THE INVISIBLES, TRANSMETROPOLITAN, THE AUTHORITY, Captain America, New X-Men, THE SANDMAN: ENDLESS NIGHTS, WE3, ALL-STAR SUPERMAN and BATMAN AND ROBIN. He has also created covers for Negative Burn, Judge Dredd Megazine, Classic 2000 AD, JONAH HEX, BOOKS OF MAGICK: LIFE DURING WARTIME, BITE CLUB, AMERICAN VIRGIN and ALL-STAR BATMAN.

This is an excellent reason why DC is for the older reader. Morrison tackles the task of creating a new Batman and Robin team and spins the familiar dynamic on it's ear. My only complaint is that I am not a fan of Frank Quitely's art, but it is easily forgiven due to the fantastic writing of Morrison.

This reboot is not only for regular readers of the monthly Bat titles, but also for casual fans of the Bat. It's quite good, and in the Morrison/Quitely tradition, often gruesome.There are villains aplenty, like Pyg and the Flamingo, and a new antihero, the Red Hood. The first trade paperback collects issues 1 to 6, but doesn't resolve everything. I look forward to the rest of the series; so far it's a wild ride.

Enjoyed this a lot more than a thoguht I would. It made Batman feel fresh. I like Rochard Grayson as Batman, and I'm glad he's not going to be giving up the cowl anytime soon.

As always Grant Morrison does it. He gives you a great Batman story. It was a little weird but overall it was good.

At first I was Skeptical for Dick Grayson being Batman and Damian being Robin. Later it makes sense, because Dick was always Bruce's son, and Later you see how Dick is perfect for his version of Batman. Great stories inside.

Well, they're new but I don't know if they're improved. As usual Grant Morrison does his best to confuse readers while creeping them out at the same time. While this plot was actually something you could follow, it was still way too weird for a good Batman tale. Damian Wayne is still way to unbelievable to me and sometimes you couldn't tell if Dick or Bruce was under the cowl. The art was okay but not great. Overall, I expected to dislike this more than I did due to the creators involved. It was an average read that has me somewhat interested to read the next collection.
