> > in that interview talking about hurt/black gloves identity being biggest reveal of year/decade or whatever (I cant find it), did he specifically say "been there since the beginning of Batman' or just the more vague `beginning'. Because, while all the blogosphere was guessing about early Batman characters being BlackGlove/Hurt (alfred, thomas wayne, thomas wayne junior, batman himself, joe chill) maybe Morrison did really mean `the beginning of time' and was letting us know the reveal- that Hurt is the Devil in disguise- it a criptic manner. I wouldn't put it past him.

Well they certainly are that, and they do have more in common besides but the things they have in common (obsessive, observant, logical & lateral thinkers, multi-tallented/pollimathic/well-read) are traits they also share with most other literary detectives; as these are the necessary traits for a great detective to have! But no, I do think Morrison is a Holmes reader though, then again alot of writers (even those not as good as GM) tend to be broud readers, and I'd hazzard a guess that nearly all those who've attempted to write some detective fiction have read a Holmes story or two!
