Grant Morrison has mellowed a bit since his Invisibles days, mostly now working with classic characters, such as Batman. But he does still manage some interesting work within the mainstream. This collection introduces a new villain, the Black Glove, for the first half of an arc that will be completed with Batman: R.I.P. later this year.

The Dark Knight attends a reunion of an international crime fighting team on a remote island. Soon they are trapped with an unknown killer picking them off one by one. Batman learns that a new evil mastermind is orchestrating his demise.

It’s nothing revolutionary, but Morrison manages a few surprises and sets up for an intriguing conclusion.

Grade: A-

Batman: The Black Glove is currently available.
