A deadly conclave of villains attacks Batman from all angles in this thrilling murder mystery masterfully executed by Grant Morrison! Don't miss this twisted caper that directly sets up the best-selling BATMAN R.I.P. storyline!
Batman #667 is simply a fun read. And in the long run, fun is what comic books are supposed to be about. Morrison does a wonderful job contrasting the Silver Age Club of Heroes with the Modern Age without being disrespectful to the Silver Age characters. You can tell that Morrison has a real soft spot in his heart for Silver Age characters. Yeah, this two issue story arc is a filler story buying time until we resume the major plotlines that Morrison has been building on this title. But, this is the type of filler story arc that I don't mind reading at all. Read Full Review

Overall, I really wish DC would stay away from the Silver Age and Kingdom Come. Or at least give us younger folks an explanatino of whatever Silver Age idea they are referencing. The plot underneath this mess of an issue is decent, but I dont know how much I really care. With the madness that has ensued during Morrisons arc its really hard to appreciate this issue, but I do hope Morrison can spark my interest in this Club of Heroes, especially since the villain seems to have some tie to the group.
