Four pages from BATMAN INCORPORATED 7...



That night, Raven finally has enough and calls it quits.



A closer look at that sign, for the`curious:





By the time the two reach Man-of-Bats, he's been stabbed, but he's still alive.



As it turns out, Raven was wearing the bulletproof "ghost shirt" underneath, so he's fine, and Man-of-Bats survives, too.

Rather impressed by this issue but I am not looking forward to the digital based next issue.

Batman on a budget. I really, really, like that scene there. That just gets to me somehow.

I love it when Batman's impressed with someone's work.

Aaron "The Mad Whitaker" Bourque; needs to be more of that, less "THIS IS MY CITY!!! RARGH!"

"Nothing important will ever happen here". And then later he talks about wanting to fight giant robots.

I am vaguely reminded of FLCL.

That last Tron bit is a typical example of something that's always annoyed the hell out of me about Morrison's Batman work. He throws in dialogue that would be better suited to big, grand, clean, fun comics akin to Batman: The Brave and the Bold, but he does it in stories which are set in the regular DCU where a character can be lying in the street, stabbed in the gut and coughing up blood. It's always felt jarring and annoying to me. Anyone else feel the same way?

the Leviathan plot just reads to me as something out of Final Crisis that got pushed aside. I could do without it.

Is it jarring for anyone else how it goes from "Batman on a budget" to BaTron?

I really love this--I remember really liking what little we saw of Man of Bats and Raven Red back during The Black Glove, but it was great giving them more of a focus.

The "Batman on a budget" stuff, seeing MOB and Raven interacting with their community was really sweet, especially when their people fought Black Elk down when MOB was in trouble. I also loved their relationship in general--it's sort-of like a more grounded version of Bruce's relationship with Dick when he was Raven's age, and they just had some great interaction (I had to laugh a bit when Bill was chastising Raven about not putting enough pressure on his wound in the middle of saying what he might have thought was his final words. If they announced an on-going about these two, I would buy it instantly.

One thing I did find funny...so, we find out that they operate on an Indian reservation in South Dakota. ...Sort-of makes me want to see them cross-over and fight this guy:

Well, I think the Tron costume's worth it for that line that seems to go down his middle from tip to uh... The other two lines just seem to draw attention

(Really hope it's not just me :P)

Is it wrong that I love the fact that he's got a giant wooden nickel (instead of the giant penny in the Batcave?) I can't tell if it's slightly racist or not, but then again I feel that way about all of the Man of Bats stuff...

I enjoyed the hell out of this issue. I was captivated by the scenes of reservation life -- especially poor Lucy and her baby, which easily could have been crass and voyeuristic in the wrong hands -- in ways no climactic space battle over Oa against Black Lanterns has matched. The plot was by-the-book, but the execution, especially the art, was excellent. I don't really care about Leviathan (yet?), but I admire the hell out of Man-of-Bats as depicted in this ish.
