A part of me tells myself I shouldn’t be reviewing new comics because I’m always constantly let down. Even more so now that I’ve lost my job and have to be quite selective with what I buy. That being said, I will always buy a Morrison book new. He’s my favorite writer and (previously) he rarely let me down. That is….until a few years ago when his run on Batman & Robin ended. Then I started wondering why I still buy his books. Vol. 1 of Inc. had massive highs and the rest was blah. Action Comics is a badly-written, unfunny joke (which I still buy, sadly). And vol. 2 of Inc. started great, and that’s all….
Issue #4 takes 5 minutes to read (10 minutes if you stop to look at the art). And then it has an ending so out-of-character for Batman…it just really makes me wonder, what the heck happened? All I’m thinking is “Okay, he has 8 issues left to make this the epic ending Batman deserves…” I know he can do it. I just don’t know if he will.
