Morrison, Daniel, Finch, Kubert & Quitely
The first of DC’s big anniversary issues this month turns in an outstanding effort by the all-star creative team. The who’s who of big name artists teams with a terrific Grant Morrison story that spans three generations of Batman stories. However, the comic book simply doesn’t feel like an anniversary issue. Using the benchmarks set by Marvel Comic’s Amazing Spider-Man #600 and Captain America #600 where we are provided a significant page count of original material, this comic book falls into the realm of Incredible Hulk #600 where it’s a low page count padded with material no one really wants. Because of DC editorial, this issue is one to avoid if you are a casual passerby. Who would want to spend $5 on roughly thirty pages of story with a bunch of pinups and a Batcave guide?
