As you can tell from the praising title of this review, I quite enjoyed Batman Inc. #2. While I feel it lost a little bit of the momentum of the first issue, and I secretly hoped we'd get the cliffhanger referencing the 60's show, this i the most dynamic comic out now. Nobody is doing what this creative team is doing. In Lord Death Man, we have a truly interesting and manic villain perfect for the darkly campy style evoked.
Batman's foray into Japan is simply chock full of all the best things comics can over from intellectualism to pure unadulterated fun. I felt as if I was seized with apprehension by the end of the issue though, because I thought, how can they keep this going? Will we see LDM back anytime soon to terrorize the Bat and Japan at large? And what of Selina? Grant writes a superb Catwoman and I certainly hope she becomes somewhat of a fixture in this title. Do yourself a favor this holiday, pick up the preceding issue and this one and dig the crazy scene that is Batman Incorporated!

Batman faces off with Mr. Death. Pros: Grant Morrison brings out some great storytelling in the second issue of Batman Inc. One fact I got to admit that I like about Morrison is bring back old villains for the new generation of readers. Mr. Death is a very colorful character. Given the fact that he's somewhat of an immortal adds some depth to him and his antics. But besides Mr. Death, I like that Bruce gives Jiro a second chance, but not outright. The artwork remains the same as the first issu...
