So I just finished reading the collected Batman: R.I.P.

WHAT

WAS

THAT


GRANT MORRISON, YOU SCOTTISH FIEND


Twice during the main story, I wanted to throw the book at the wall.

Yet the concluding chapters were so brilliant and, in my opinion, made it all worthwhile.


I still think they should have given some hints or at least visual shape hints or something earlier in the story. It could have been done without sacrificing the fragmented, plunge-into-action nature of the story.

FRUSTRATING, BRAIN-BREAKING

I liked it sooooo much better than boring, overrated Hush though.
I feel sorry for those who had to follow this story issue by issue, though. It works much better when read all at once.

in Marvel land, is anyone reading Ed Brubaker's The Marvels Project? I am buying that one issue by issue. I'm a sucker for revisiting stuff from the superhero "golden age."

I totally thought they were going in for a kiss towards the end.


ETA: oh, and I finished Red Dwarf series 1 a few days ago. Now I want a cat book.
