Now earlier I said it would be likely for them to collect this across two volumes rather than three. I hope all those who read it enjoyed this, and please give feedback. Do you agree that this should happen? Do you disagree? Do you think it should be compiled differently?
Hell, maybe if this gets enough attention DC could take a hint and actually make it happen. Anyway, leave your comments in replies or reblogs or whatever. Welcome to The Omnibus Collector! This is a blog dedicated to Omnibus comic collections, and other similar formats. Monday, 26 August Yet being published in at least one, then two, book s continuously for 70 years presents two problems: 1 how to keep the character of Batman interesting and 2 how to keep the character from becoming too esoteric as time goes on. In the wake of Infinite Crisis , Batman's history was rebooted yet again.
But as the readers would soon discover, this reboot would not remove anything from Batman's past this time around; in fact the exact opposite occurred. After the end of Batman's "One Year Later" story, noted writer Grant Morrison became the head writer for the eponymous "Batman" monthly magazine. As Morrison's run went on, fans soon discovered that all of the previously removed portions of Batman's history had been restored to full Canon status in some way or another.
Even the bits that contradict the other bits! Morrison has stated that he intends his work to be part of a series , with "four [collected] volumes and, if the cards are right, a fifth volume, a final volume" : His complete Batman run includes the following:.
Tropes particular to Morrison's Batman:
Previously, Morrison wrote a Batman story called Batman: Gothic , which explores some of the same themes as this run. Community Showcase More. Follow TV Tropes. I've just been aware that I shouldn't let comics become that big in my life so that they don't become all I have and drive to a low like her's. I can imagine how frustrating it must be to have something your smitten by, quite possibly the most powerful figure in your world reduced to nothing in front of you by the hands Grant Morrison. When he made Grayson a smiling tool in Batman Inc it also bothered me quite a bit.
My most highly recommended and, incidentally, all time favorite Batman story arc is The Resurrection of Ra's al Ghul. I don't understand why, it is written by Grant Morrison, and he somehow manages to perfect Talia's character. That she sides with Bruce over her family, and that she cares so much about Bruce's legacy. She also has some great scenes with Tim Drake.
Second would be Gotham City Sirens. I can't remember exactly what issues she shows up in, but she plays a big role in the plot from like 15 onwards. I lost my old files, so I need to get them again. Beyond that?

Bonus points are given for reading Birth of the Demon which is where Bruce actually decides to marry Talia and give up being Batman I'm pretty sure it is in there. The resurrection of Ra's al Ghul's ending always felt rushed to me. Neat little story. RainEffect said:. It was easy to misconstrue it that way but the way I read it was quite different. Bruce and Talia definatley had a connection and the slept together because of that, because they felt something for eachother. Notice right after they are just laying down and talking. Bruce seemed very willing UNTIL she said something along the lines of "our son is going to be great".
THIS is what freaks him out. She certainly drugged him but it wasnt with a roofie or anything like that. He was probably given some drug that would ensure he got her pregnant with a son. It sounds a bit ridiculous but these are comics and im sure that something like that is entirely possible. That didnt happen here. I like the character, can't say I've read as much of her as I have of Ra's, but this is screwed up. Not that I had plans to buy Batman Inc.
Tropes particular to Morrison's Batman:
I love Morrison's writing for the most part, but it's outright disappointing that he'd go and do this. Even worse, for what seems like no reason at all. It just honestly seems like he didn't think about what he was doing and made a stupid decision. Does it ruin the writer for me, and his past works? Certainly not. But I can't say I'll be very happy with him from now on.
Batman: The Resurrection of Ra's Al Ghul
I really can't help but think that introducing her knowledge of Talia through RP was not the best way to do it. CitizenBane said:. She cried? That's really too much of a, dare I say sad response to this thing. Admittedly Talia raping Bruce might not be the best thing for the character but personally I do like the fact Talia has a vision for her world and wants everything to be perfect, ie ruling the world with Bruce by her side raising their genetically superior bratty son.
There's another word beginning with b that describes Damian even better but I won't say it. The point is sometimes these things happen. Morrison is a great writer, one of my favourites but not even the best can appeal to the die-hard fangirls it would seem. CitizenBane : God damn it dude.
