Grant Morrison has put together a masterpiece. I sat down and read issues 1-13 of his Batman & Robin run and am left amazed. While DC has done a number on my belief in their ability to stitch a story together, the first reason being Geoff Johns and the last reason being Kevin Smith; Morrison is having his way with the DC universe and making it work. I’ve raved about the greatness of The Walking Dead comic (soon a TV show on AMC) but Morrison may be usurping the title of “Philippe’s Comic Champ”. The only problem I have with Morrison is, in my opinion, that he is best read in TPB or with several comics in hand. The details/storylines demand seamless reading. Reading one issue and then stepping away for a month will leave gaps in your Batman memory and only serve to confuse. He’s a terrific writer but if you want the full experience, to be thoroughly engaged in the story he hems around your brain and Gotham, pick up the TBP. And to be certain, I feel this way about most things I’ve read by Morrison.
