    Batman #702 was a fantastically fun read and I hope that this level of quality can be expected each and every month. If so I will definitely find myself investing more time in the Batman family of titles. Read Full Review

    Batman #702 was a wonderfully crafted read. Fans of Grant Morrison are sure to love this issue. Morrison brings such a captivating story that has plenty of substance for the reader to chew on. What is great is that not only do you get an issue that is impressively written and posses far more depth than most comic books on the market, but the cover price is only $2.99. There really is not much to dislike about this issue. Read Full Review

    Not quite the worthless throwaway it might have seemed upon first glance, "Batman" #702 provides some key elements for Grant Morrison's ongoing Batman story, specifically the current "Return of Bruce Wayne." His writing here is poetic and purposeful, and continues his work to elevate the character beyond the limitations of a simple urban vigilante. Read Full Review

    There are also a couple of really good lines describing Superman, his abilities, and his larger world, from Batman's point of view. Better late than never, and worth a look. Read Full Review

    Now, I think we can all agree that its not generally surprising to say that Batman is one of the most impressive figures in the DC Universe, especially in the love letters to the character Grant Morrison writes, but Ill say this: I was distinctly taken aback by the sheer intellectual determination and capacities of a character Ive loved and followed since I was a kid. Despite a slow start, Batman R.I.P., The Missing Chapter has a great payoff that should please fans of Morrisons treatment of the character. I know it pleased me. Read Full Review

    Let's be honest, if you read Final Crisis then this is a must-have issue. You are going to love it. If you are the rare person that followed Morrison's run on Batman but not Final Crisis, like me, then you will be entertained but frustrated. DC is weaving such a complicated web where their titles are too interconnected over too long of a period of time. It's frustrating and it's making me question how I can continue to read the few characters I still follow in their universe. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt Aug 26, 2010

    When this issue works, it works in spades. Morrison's outsidethebox plotting is his biggest weapon and his most consistent downfall here in this tremendously inconsistent issue. I think there is a lot of potential for Morrison to be able to finally tell a complete and coherent story out of two of his most holefilled and incoherent stories of his career, but instead he creates more problems in an issue that, quite honestly, reads like a halfassed apology. If you are going to plug the gaps that you are admitting exist (which is clearly the point of this storyline), plug themdon't drill more holes. Read Full Review
