This is it! The end of the Bat-Saga! We have come a long way — through seven years of comics, through layers of hope and despair, and even through DC’s stupid collection decisions (note to anyone still working their way through the comics: There’s three volumes of Batman Inc, and they’re numbered 1, 1, and 2. Because that makes so much sense. I know the reasoning is that the latter two volumes are “New 52” and the other isn’t, but it’s still stupid. I know there have been people who got the wrong comics. I’m one of them, I accidentally skipped a volume and that’s why this post is a week late, I had to go to a comic shop, which involves a drive of at least two hours — PSA over). Now for the last year of Batman Incorporated and the end of the Bat-Saga as we know it!
I’m going to go ahead and admit to you that the first time I read Batman Incorporated 1 I didn’t quite follow what in the hell was going on. As with the first time I read Final Crisis, I got the gist of things, but didn’t understand the importance of all the layers lying overtop the basic plot. I think I get it now, but I’m not making any promises here.
…and hoping the next leap will be his leap home.
This week, the Return of Bruce Wayne, through time and space, devils and demons and the end of the universe!
