I've been reading the Batman R.I.P. since the beginning and I'm as lost as a blind man walking in the desert. Can someone explain to me in 25 words or less. What's going on? Thanks.

Grant Morrison's writing generally only makes sense after one reads the entire story. And sometimes not until you've read it twice. Just go with it. ;\-\)

That's why I'm waiting for the HC. Grant's Batman stories read better as HCs. Got them all now. However, if Dick becomes Batman (again), I will be getting the series.

Years ago, Batman took part in experiments conducted by Simon Hurt. Now, Hurt with the Black Glove and Club Of Villains, they are going to break Batman mentally. End result, Batman will change.

Grant Morrison is re-integrating/explaning all the Sci-Fi and Fantasy Batman stories of the 50's and 60's(including bat-mite) and re-introducing them as a part of Batmans own psyche.

Note that he doesn't have a hero say that, he has an (apparent) VILLAIN say that.

I don't think he's asked anyone to do anything else. Blind obedience is, if anything, a recurring theme of bad guys in Morrison's stories.

The point of the French revenge tails of those times was to break the person and let them rot (man in the iron mask, count of monty cristo and some of the other muskateers stories) and philosophers often hide the point of their ideas, not at the beginning or end of a paper but int he middle, so that the lose alot of the audience and only those who are real into get it.

all i can say is that philosophers are arogant, but that this sort of stuff is really apparant in this story, along with his attempt to unify everything in batman. but its not worth going to university to get. hell, i didn't get THIN RED LINE, till i took a philosophy course.

I'm trying to do the same.
What books did you get?

So far, I got: Batman and Son, Ras Ressurection, The Black Glove.
I am wait for RIP and the recent Hush story to come out in Trade early next year.

Also, is there a Trade when Bats faces the three Police-Batmen for the first time>

Once I get them, what out be the order to put the Trades in?

Thank you

I guess Bruce Wayne will be taking a break from being Batman, but how or why or in what form, or who will take over as Batman, I don't really know. We can all guess. But as far as what's happening in the story, we all know the same thing. It's not exactly a fast moving or overly predictable story. Personally I like a story that keeps me on my toes. And then again, these message boards are wonderful because someone always picks out stuff that would never occur to me. Personally, I kind think it's symptomatic of modern comics that they have to be safe, obvious, and bowing at the feet of continuity. That doesn't exactly appeal to people who might be new to comics, which does explain, I think, why comic readership is shrinking at a steady rate. Newcomers look at it and think, "Do I have the years, decades, lifetimes of prior knowledge to get it? To be welcome?" and the answer is usually "No. Go away. You're not wanted." Fortunately the non Marvel and DC graphic novel movement is gaining mainstream / alternative "coolness factor." So I guess there's hope for comics not to go the way of the dodo bird. But things aren't looking good for we message board dwellers.

Uhh, right, we're talking about Batman. Yes, I get it, as far as any of it can be gotten. It'll do better upon rereading, like books or movies do with rereading or rewatching. When the final issue is released there'll come a sound of skin on skin as we Batman followers slap our foreheads in unison. "Oh, so THAT'S what it was all about!" And then we'll race to our computers, log onto our favourite message boards to be the first to write a post about how much it sucked and we want Bruce Wayne back as Batman.

He first meets two of the three police replacement Batmen in two of the later issues featured in the Batman and Son trade.

He meets the 3rd of the three police replacement Batmen in three issues that's found in The Black Glove hardcover.

If you want to go in order,

1.) Batman and Son
2.) First 3 issues in The Black Glove trade (The International Club of Heroes story)
3.) The Resurrection of Ras Al Ghul
4.) The rest of The Black Glove trade
5.) Batman RIP
