    i got the new issue of wizard in the mail yesterday and it had a article on batman RIP. i know there is a TON of Morrison hate on the web, but the storyline peaked my interest. the new rendition of the Joker is really cool i think, and might make the book worth reading. would it be worth a pickup from the bookstore in graphic novel form?

    i really want to read some current batman with the battle for the cowl storyine starting up :hs:

    i personally loved the journey rip took you on but as of now i was furious at the conclusion. i would start at the beginning of the morrison run before diving into RIP

    Yeah. I liked Batman RIP as an arc... but I hated having to get into Final Crisis to see the actual conclusion to Batman RIP.

    i like a good batman story. i don't read it on any kind of a normal basis, but reading RIP was a headache. morrison is NOT a bad writer by any means, he's created some of the better books I've read. we3 and all-star superman are two excellent reads, but the shit he's come out with lately are not a compliment to the comic book kingdom. final crisis was terrible and his batman run was different, but immensely boring.
