“Batman Incorporated” # 3¬†highlights the true¬†globalization of Batman as Bruce Wayne heads to Argentina to recruit El Gaucho into Batman Incorporated. Upon arrival Bruce finds that El Gaucho is preoccupied with a missing children’s case. Of course being the ultimate detective Bruce can’t help but get involved.

While I loved issue #2 I felt it was wrapped up a little too neatly and that this issue should have been used on that storyline. That said, this issue (the first of a 3 part storyline), is a fun and a little nostalgic. El Gaucho first appeared in Detective Comics in 1955 but more recently in Morrison’s underwhelming R.I.P. storyline. I really like Morrison’s work with him in this issue. Yes he’s a version of Batman and Bruce Wayne but I enjoyed him here. There are some interesting twists as Morrison begins to amp us his mystery. Overall he is still putting out some good material.

Once again, Yanick Paquette’s art is very good. He’s a good fit for Morrison and particularly Batman.

This title remains a good one. It’s pacing is a little suspect but so far Morrison has held everything together. It’s a book that I’m certainly excited about whenever release day rolls around.
