NEIL GAIMAN & VARIOUS
In 2009 and after Grant Morrison’s apocalyptic run on Batman, two monthly titles, Detective Comics and Batman, have been put on hiatus. So who better than Neil Gaiman to write the final two-part story? Again looking to the past, relaying multiple deaths and lives for the Dark Knight. Andy Kubert pays skilful homage to the artists that brought the masked vigilante to life since 1939 and again this package is bulked out with more Gaiman stories of the Bat.
There are similarities in both stories constructing metafictional ends to two of the most enduring fictional characters the world has ever seen. An interesting project from two of comic’s most influential and unique writers.
