"Did you ever wonder what it's like to be dead?"

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 issue. The detail is everywhere even with the smallest things. The action pages are great as well. I also like J.H Williams III cover as well.

Cons:
Not entirely sure of the idea that Japan has literally a Batman now. This is probably because I read Batman Annual 12 first before this issue where Nightrunner is the Batman of France but not wearing a Batman costume, just the symbol. I think Jiro should have a bat symbol with the Mr. Unknown outfit.

Selina departs in this issue as well. Minor complaint.

Overall: Slowly, the idea of Batman Inc. is starting to come together. In the meantime though, Grant Morrison's story are pretty entertaining. Can't wait for the next issue.

It is a different take on the usual mentor/apprentice working relationship that we usual see in DC Comics, and it is a shame that we had to come i...

    The Most Dynamic Comic Out 0

    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.  Bow to Mighty Lord Death Man!  Batman's foray into Japan is simply ...
