Emanata: The Black Mass

There are days when I admire people who don’t have a serious, unkickable superhero-comics habit, and there are other days when I feel a little sorry for people who don’t get to enjoy things like Batman and Robin #13. It’s the best episode thus far of Grant Morrison’s ongoing Batman project: the one in which the dominoes he’s been lining …

Emanata: A Prospective Reader’s Guide to “Final Crisis”

Final Crisis, whose paperback edition comes out next Thursday, was as divisive a superhero comic as there’s been in years. The range of reactions to Grant Morrison’s (and a zillion artists’) massive DC-universe epic wasn’t just along the axis of readers who loved it and readers who hated it (and there were plenty at both extremes), but …

Exclusive Interview: Grant Morrison on Batman Times Three

The next few months will see a whole colony of Batman comics written by Grant Morrison. Besides the ongoing Batman and Robin, whose most recent issue ended with one of those classic Morrison twists that are obvious only in retrospect, he’s writing the six-issue miniseries Batman: The Return of Bruce Wayne (which launches next week), as …

Emanata: Batman & Robin Pour Down Like Silver

There’s a touch of silver in the solicitations for the next few months’ superhero comics–a hint that both DC and Marvel are trying to recapture the tone of the so-called Silver Age, the era from the late ’50s to the early ’70s when both franchises laid the groundwork for what they’ve been doing ever since. Nobody’s let anything …

DCU 2010: The Return of Bruce Wayne

DC is motoring right along with their 2010 announcements this week and today we learn that Bruce Wayne will be making his triumphant return to Gotham in a six-part miniseries penned by Grant Morrison. If you weren’t following Final Crisis or even Battle for the Cowl then you probably wouldn’t have picked up on the fact that Bruce …
