    To summarize, it looks like one summer series that boasts the "nothing will ever be the same" tagline might actually deliver on that promise in a big, big way. Read Full Review

    Batman #677 was just an amazing issue. Morrison delivers a story that is technically well written. This issue pretty much has everything that a story could ever possess. There is action, adventure, mystery, suspense, drama, madness, deceit and impressive character work. There really isn't much more that a reader can ask from a comic book than what Morrison gives us in Batman #677. If you still haven't hopped aboard Batman RIP then I strongly urge you to do so. This is one of the best stories currently on the market and is well worth your money. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - J. Montes May 29, 2008

    As you can probably guess, this issue created more questions than it answered. But it's loaded with mystery and motives from so far back, it seems like only Bruce's dead parents may only know the answers. Long time readers of Batman may be well rewarded if they've got enough historical knowledge under their belt. But I have a feeling most of this is all coming out of Morrison's head. Whatever's going on, it's a heck of a dark journey and a lonely one for Bruce Wayne. Read Full Review

    I wish Morrison had a better artist joining him on this strange journey, but "Batman R.I.P." is shaping up to be a classic. The more we learn about the Black Glove, the more we appreciate Morrison's earlier work on this series, as small moments from months ago, or even years ago, matter more in retrospect. Morrison's "Batman" has re-engaged my interest in the Batman mythos, and I'm eager to see how he's going to tie the Black Glove reveal into the "death" of Batman. Because even though I've been "sure" of the Black Glove's identity about half a dozen times, I really don't know what Morrison has planned. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Koppy McFad Jun 3, 2008

    Having Batman fight what looks like a 19th century circus troupe doesn't really grip the reader the way DC Comics wishes it would. In fact, it looks like a typical three-part Batman story that Doug Moench would do a few years ago. Hopefully, the creative team can build up from this to a more satisfying resolution.

    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren May 29, 2008

    I came away with nothing from this issue. Maybe it's not for me. Maybe I'm being too critical and trying too hard to fit Morrison's Batman into what I perceive to be the "true" Batman image in my mind. I just can't see how throwing old Silver Age nonsense at the wall and hoping it sticks as a coherent story makes this good and I'm very tentative in picking up any future issues of this storyline.
