    I found the story of this issue a little confusing in places, but I think that's the point - at this stage, anyway. One possibility that occurred to me is that Bane-Batman may be some kind of other-worldly incarnation of Batman (all that "Zur-En-Arrh" graffiti is showing up in the backgrounds again - and you can google that phrase if you don't know its significance already), and the implication that this might be tied into a more complicated explanation for the cop in the Batman costume who shot the Joker in Morrison's first issue on the book makes me more confident that the writer has a coherent long-term plan for the series, which should make for a compelling ongoing read. After a shaky couple of instalments at the tail end of "Batman & Son", this issue has got me back on board the series for Morrison and Kubert's run - for the time being, at least. Let's see where it goes. Read Full Review

    Batman #664 was a solid read. This issue had an enjoyable blend of quality writing and good artwork. Morrison and Kubert are a great team and it is great to have them back on this title. Morrison does a nice job kicking off this new story arc that has plenty of potential. I'd certainly recommend giving Batman a try. Read Full Review

    Overall, this issue isnt bad, but it isnt spectacular. Morrisons run has been hit and miss, but this is definitely a step-up over the prose issue. Im definitely mixed about the story in this issue, but Id be silly not to hold out and see where exactly Morrison is going. Read Full Review
