Opening a Grant Morrison book you always know you will find a story brimming with imagination. He can pull off vintage campy Batman ideas like a gang of chimney sweep minions with glee and free of irony. He can have a remotely controlled Robin ambush Batman. He can explore the Wayne ancestry through secret passageways in the manor.

It’s these kinds of ideas, reflecting a love of comic books and their history, that are missing in the current vogue of rebooting every pop culture franchise with a dark, humorless take. Morrison reminds you how fun comics can be.

This is the second volume in Morrison’s series, which takes place after Bruce Wayne’s supposed death with Dick Grayson and Bruce’s son Damian filling the Dynamic Duo’s shoes.

Grade: B+
