Re: Official Batman Titles thread 2.0 - - - - Part 13
Final Crisis was Grant trying to do something different, a different kind of "event" comic, so it's fairly different in structure than his usual stuff.
Also on the matter of Inc ending with Damian's death, am I the only one who feels that that would be almost...I dunno..."counter Morrison" ? I mean this is the same guy who wrote himself into a comic so that he could resurrect Animal Man's family, the same guy who had Superman overcome death itself and go on to fix the sun, the same guy who "killed" Bruce Wayne and then had him fight his way through time itself to defeat the God of Evil. I can't help but think that this death stuff is just a red herring, or if not, something that he'll reverse in some glorious and uplifting manner in the finale.

Ramsay’s mother appeared at my gates to demand that I provide a servant for my bastard, who was growing up wild and unruly. I gave her Reek. It was meant to be amusing, but he and Ramsay became inseparable. I do wonder, though... was it Ramsay who corrupted Reek, or Reek Ramsay? ”
