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.
