Grant Morrison - The Invisibles Vol. 2 #11-13

Xtinction Agenda

Chris and James ask themselves the immortal question: who are they? Are they who they think they are? Or who they want them to be? Or who they think that they want them to think that they are? Or something deeper??? They also talk about 'American Death Camp: Part Two'. "That disgust, that shame... that's the ecstasy of abaddon."

Batman by Grant Morrison, Episode 06 - The Resurrection of Ra's al Ghul | Crushing Comics Book Club

Crushing Comics

Welcome back to our read of Grant Morrison’s run on Batman! For this episode, Peter insisted we read Resurrection of Ra’s al Ghul IN FULL… and he was WRONG, y’all. If you were thinking maybe you didn’t get enough of a summary from the stunning Chris Burnham summary pages in the Grant Morrison Batman omnibus we are here so you can witness our suffering with this part recap, part mocking, and part lamentation on this lumpy uneventful event. If you are reading digitally, here’s the correct order: Batman (1940) Annual 26, Robin (1993) Annual 7 (2nd story), Batman (1940) #670, Robin (1993) #168, Nightwing (1996) #138, Detective Comics (1937) #838, Batman (1940) #671, Robin (1993) #169, Nightwing (1996) #139, & Detective Comics (1937) #839. For this epic (re)read, Harry is our expert – he loves Batman and Morrison, and he has read this run multiple times. Fariha is our intermediate – she has read plenty of Morrison and DC, but not this run in full and never any pre-90s Batman. And, Peter is now the novice – he’s read some of this run before, but otherwise this is his FIRST TIME reading ANY pre-New-52 Batman! Tune in next week for Batman R.I.P. in DC Universe (2008) #0 and Batman (1940) #676-681. Want to dive in to reading and collecting Batman and the rest of the DC Universe?

Batman by Grant Morrison, Episode 05 - The Black Glove | Crushing Comics Book Club

Crushing Comics

Welcome back to Crushing Comics Book Club for Batman by Grant Morrison! In this episode, we (and the Morrison omnibus) continue our read to the introduction of The Black Glove in Batman (1940) #667-669. Then, we SKIP issues #669-671 to continue to the Death of Batman (but not in the way you think) in Batman (1940) #672-675. The Black Glove is a story that HEAVILY references several stories in The Black Casebook, since it features Batman’s full cast of international imitators! For this epic (re)read, Harry is our expert – he loves Batman and Morrison, and he has read this run multiple times. Fariha is our intermediate – she has read plenty of Morrison and DC, but not this run in full and never any pre-90s Batman. And, Peter is now the novice – he’s read some of this run before, but otherwise this is his FIRST TIME reading ANY pre-New-52 Batman! Tune in next week as we read Resurrection of Ra’s al Ghul IN FULL – not only in #670-671, but from prelude to ending in Batman (1940) Annual 26 & #670-671, Detective Comics (1937) #838-839, Nightwing (1996) #138-139, and Robin (1993) Annual 7 (2nd story) & #168-169.

Batman by Grant Morrison, Episode 04 - Batman and Son | Crushing Comics Book Club

Crushing Comics

Welcome back to Crushing Comics Book Club for Batman by Grant Morrison – and, to our first episode discussing Morrison’s run that began in 2006. Content Warning: We discuss sexual assault from 27:00 to 32:45. In this episode, we discuss Morrison’s first arc with Andy Kubert – “Batman and Son” – in Batman (1940) #655-658. This story establishes some major themes of Morrison’s run, as well as their major creation in the Batman family – Damian Wayne! Then, we (and the Morrison omnibus) skip over the unrelated issues #659-662 to continue with #663 – the infamous prose issue about The Joker ! After that, Batman comes face-to-face with a second deadly imitator in #654-655. And, finally, we get a glimpse into Damian’s potential future in #666. Harry is our expert – he loves Batman and Morrison, and he has read this run multiple times. Fariha is our intermediate – she has read plenty of Morrison and DC. And, Peter is now the novice – he’s read some of this run before, but otherwise this is his FIRST TIME reading pre-New-52 Batman! Tune in next week to continue our Morrison read with Batman (1940) #667-669 & 672-675. Note that we are skipping over the Resurrection of Ra’s al Ghul issues in #670-671, which we will return to in the following episode.
