    Grant Morrison’s Batman is one of the best Batman runs i’ve ever read.
    this deluxe sized omnibus finally gives us the Definitive reading order for Grant Morrison’s Batman.
    Batman & Robin 1-16, The Return of Bruce 1-6, and Batman 700-702 have been printed in chronological reading order for the first time ever!

    the Bonus Content from the original collected editions has all been reprinted within this Omnibus. The main & variant covers are printed just before each chapter.

    definitely check out Batman by Grant Morrison Omnibus Vol. 1 if you haven’t already. This book picks up where that one left off.

    The story begins with Dick Grayson (the very first, and original Robin) has taken up the mantle of Batman. Bruce Wayne has been missing and is presumed dead. Bruce’s Son, Damian who was introduced in Omnibus Vol. 1 takes up the mantle of Robin. This presents a very unique dynamic between Batman & Robin, as now we have a lighthearted, optimistic Batman clashing with a grim and brooding Robin. There are a lot of growing pains along the way. Alfred Pennyworth really shines in this series, as he adds some much needed guidance for our two heroes. Within these stories you really come to love Alfred, as he is the very heart and soul of the Bat-Family.

    The Dynamic between Batman & Robin isn’t the only thing that has changed. Commissioner Gordon can tell that there’s something different about Batman & Robin, and is uncertain if he can trust them or not.

    We are introduced to an all-new Bat-mobile that we saw early in development in the first Morrison Batman Omnibus. Grant has also penned some new villains for our heroes to face, as well as some classic Rogues Gallery.

    the reading sequence is as follows-

    Batman & Robin #1
    Batman & Robin #2
    Batman & Robin #3
    Batman & Robin #4
    Batman & Robin #5
    Batman & Robin #6
