so-so. Not the best, kinda weird but interesting story.

It almost didn't seem like a Batman comic. With the time travel and the really peripheral presence of anyone else I was waiting for Star Trek characters to walk in. I'm not sure I understand the context either but that could just be ,e reading things out of order again

Story is really confusing, had to go to wikipedia to understand what was happening. I love other Grant Morrison works but not this one, wasn't at all what I expected.

Really good book, but very confusing unless you followed the Batman comics to this point (which you probably wouldn't be reading this if you have...). It does kinda all make sence in the end though.

Decent drawings but the story is very confusing.

The artwork is great, but the story is really confusing. I still couldn't figure out what was happening when I was halfway through.

I love Grant Morrison and everything, but I'm going to have to read it twice to understand. However, good art, and still good prose,

I thought that the death of Bruce Wayne was anti-climactic. As a result, this "return of" collection was totally predictable (how often do superheroes stay dead anyway?). It's a pretty feeble attempt at explaining how Wayne could return after having died. Morrison is definitely off his game here, which is a shame because, at his best, he can really work miracles with the medium.

A bit disjointed, perhaps (it would have helped to have a single artist).

The art is excellent; however, the story was a bit disappointing. Better to fail big, than to fail small.

That said, do not come to this story cold. Before reading this collection, make certain you have read the other Grant Morrison written collections (Batman & son, Batman: The Black Glove, Batman RIP, Final Crisis, Batman & Robin vol. 1 and vol. 2) found in the JOCO library collection.

Definitely not for casual reading (which might explain my dissatifaction).
