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.
