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.
