BATMAN INCORPORATED NO MORE? As the Joker Incorporated storyline comes to its bloody conclusion, Batman Incorporated is left divided. They've crossed lines they swore they never would in the name of protecting the innocent. Now they're left to cope with the fallout. They may have won the battle, but did Joker win the war?

    Overall, this was a fun series but I don't think the fusion of this crew with Ghost-Maker quite worked. They never gelled as a team, which may have been the point, and I'm hoping the very intriguing assassin gets more spotlights in the future. Read Full Review

    I'm disappointed that the series ends with this issue. However, I appreciate that Brisson ended the title in a way that leaves the door open for future missions. Batman Incorporated plays an important part in the Batman mythos. Despite Bruce not appearing in the series, you see his influence throughout the twelve issues. This was particularly the case as the team became willing to push back on Ghost-Maker as he pressured them to willfully kill members of Joker Inc. Read Full Review

    Batman Incorporated #12 was a fun little distraction for the Gotham characters that no longer have a place in the mainstream Bat-books. That aside, this issue was just “ok”. Read Full Review

    Batman Incorporated's finale is a lot like the issues that preceded it loud, action-packed, and superficial. Read Full Review

    Ed Brisson just gave up? The entire book surrounds Ghost-Maker trying to live up to Batman's standards, and then he doesn't. In fact, the events of the second act entirely unravels the good will of the first. Overall, it isn't saying anything, it doesn't make sense, the art is often jagged and inconsistent, and neglects the team for most of the series. Batman put a killer in charge of a group of heroes and only accomplished to kill and traumatize them. I can forgive the book being goofy, but the biggest sin is ineffectually criticizing Batman's effectiveness. Even if I don't approve of crafting DIY electromagnetic weapons, making the impossible reasonable is what makes Batman special. In that sense, most of the team prove themselves worthy of the cowl, even if they clearly need to find less challenging professions. Read Full Review
