batman 666.

Here’s Grant Morrison being an artisté (with the ‘e’, thank you) again. We’re in the middle of a story arc, and boom! A one-shot from the future! And this being the core Batman book, leaves the question, “is it canon?”

The events portrayed here feature the Batman of the future, Damian Wayne. In a supposed future, 15 years on, Bruce is killed by an unknown assassin, and Damian carries out his father’s war on crime.

With the impending apocalypse, and the third ghost of Batman from the current storyline, (who’s yet to appear in the main story arc) the one-shot leaves off on whether Damian will save the world … or not.

Nitpicks aside, as a stand-alone story, it’s generally okay. Damian puts on the mantle of the Bat, with a slightly different costume. He wears a … trenchcoat with the utility belt over it. He’s one step ahead of everyone, while the trail of brutality he leaves behind makes the new commisioner hungry for this Batman’s blood. (The new commish is Barbs)

The art has been brought in this issue. It’s Kubert, after all, with a fantastic (and horrific) vision of a red-tinged future on the brink of apocalypse.

The theme of demons is prevalant all throughout this issue. (Check the issue number.) It didn’t feel like it deserved all the hype it got from the solicitations month back, but it’s a “meh” issue to me. It’s enjoyable, but only for the 10 minutes of entertainment it provides.

3/5
