| > Yeah, I got that. My point was that from the first page until the before last page of that one comic in my hand, Batman 682, was a dream. Well, there were those brief glimpses of something called "Lump" and a couple of weird creatures whom I had never seen before and probably will never see again. I guess I brought this upon myself. My second rule for buying comics is that I avoid crossovers like the plague, so I broke that one voluntarily when I saw "Final Crisis" on the cover. Oh yeah, that reminds me of the whole media quasi blitz advertising Batman 681 as the issue where "Batman dies or maybe doesn't." That was a load of bull too, as we can clearly see. All in all this has been a less than pleasant comic book experience.|
Oh, ok...I misunderstood what you were saying. I knew something was off during to story, as there were elements that haven't been part of Batman in decades that were involved.
And while I respect your opinion, I don't agree. I was extremely entertained by RIP. I didn't buy the issues, but read a friend's, and plan to buy the TPB. I also found #682 to be somewhat fun, while at the same time introducing an element of danger to Batman.
Really looking forward to Battle for the Cowl now...
