A Reader’s Guide To Grant Morrison’s Batman

Standard

Well, not ALL of Grant Morrison’s Batman; his stand alone stories are not discussed here – only the currently in progress epic, which will continue on during 2012/2013’s relaunched Batman Inc.

If there is one question I’ve answered more than any other in the past few years in regards to Batman, it is “what is the reading order of Grant Morrison’s run”, or some variation thereof. So I have created this list as a permanent resource and answer to that question. I’ve also created this list for my own edification, to satiate my own disturbingly deep love for Morrison’s Bat tale.

This will hopefully be a straightforward, simple and easy to follow chronological list that will tell you the reading order and supply you with visual representations of all the comics that make up the run, to help the die hard, single issue collectors out there. (I’ve pictured all variant versions of issues below, but not all re-printings where the only thing that changed was a color tone shift and I’ve also put this list here as pure text, just in case you simply want to copypasta it onto your phone, etc. for use in comic shops.)

0: Background Material

This is completely unnecessary to understand the Morrison arc, but extremely enlightening nonetheless, think of it as extra credit.

Morrison’s arc has integrated, retconned, referenced and reinserted many silver age Batman moments in(to) it’s labyrinthine tale, so to see where some (but certainly not all) of these ideas originated, and to contextualize the contemporary references, you’d do yourself well to read the collection of stories re-released as the TPB, The Black Casebook

The Black Casebook

If you’re still hungry for context in regards to the other obscure references, you can always go read this wonderful article by John Wells over at ComicMix, which helps to highlight more of the callbacks present in Morrison’s arc.

The first bit of story that Morrison crafted for his Bat-epic actually appeared in small chunks in two different issues of 52 (not to be confused with the “new 52”). Fifty Two was a weekly comic series which ran from 2006-2007, the series’ concept was to fill in the missing year between Infinite Crisis and Countdown to Final Crisis.

In 52, Morrison gives us a few glimpses of Bruce wandering to Nanda Parbat where he would undergo the thögal ritual which is referenced later on during his proper Batman run. All in all the only two issues which contain pertinent details to Morrison’s story are Issues (“weeks”) #30 and #47. In TPB form 52, Vol. 3 collects weeks 27-39 and Vol. 4 collects the remainder of the series, and therein week #47. You could also just go all out and get the Omnibus collection, which collects all 52 weeks in one volume.

52, Week #30

52, Week #47

 1: “Batman and Son”

The real start of the run begins in Batman #655 – #658 then takes a short break and picks back up in Batman #663 – #666. This first part of the arc is generally referred to as Batman and Son, even though the only issues to carry that name in original print were the first four issues. Regardless all issues above can also be found compiled in the TPB known as Batman and Son. Batman #666 should be considered notable as it takes place in a “possible” future – and as such, may be full of red herrings… or maybe not.

UPDATE:

The newly released Batman and Son – Deluxe Edition contains all of the Batman & Son issues AND the entire Black Glove run, which is the next entry on this list – so if you’d like both runs collected in one volume, opt for the Deluxe Edition of Batman and Son.

 2: “The Black Glove”

This chapter consists of the issues Batman #667 – #675, and it would be a pretty straight forward jaunt, if not for two issues right in the middle of the chapter that take a break to act as the bookends for another arc: The Resurrection of Ra’s al Ghul. Batman #670 and #671 are chapters in the Ra’s story, which continues outside of the main Batman book and is handled by writers other than Morrison. The two issues certainly fit in well enough without reading the missing pieces between 670 & 671 – but if you want the whole story on Ra’s resurrection you will, unfortunately, have to hunt down the various issues which make up the crossover, or just buy the trade. Once again, the only parts that are considered pertinent to Morrison’s story are the ones listed here, so you will not miss anything by not reading the entire “resurrection” arc by itself.

UPDATE:

The Black Glove is available as a TPB in a normal edition and also, now in a Deluxe Edition which includes all the Batman & Son issues AND the entire Black Glove story line, so if you opt for the Deluxe Edition of the Black Glove trade, then you can skip purchasing the Batman & Son TPB listed above, as it is now combined into one book.

3: “Batman R.I.P.”

R.I.P. actually begins with a prologue that is found in a book outside of the normal Batman issues: DC Universe #0, the prologue is actually only three pages long and is just a short conversation between Bats and Joker – it is pretty great though, for only being three pages you’d think they’d have just stuck it in with the first issue of the arc proper, which would be Batman #676 – #681. If you read the trade collection, the DCU #0 prologue is included.

 3a: “Last Rights” and “R.I.P. The Missing Chapters” – the bridge to Final Crisis

This is where things begin to get a bit confusing. Batman #682 and #683 are meant to bridge the gap between R.I.P. and Final Crisis – then Batman #700- #702 jump back in time, before Final Crisis to fill in the “Missing Chapters” betwixt the two. Oddly though, Batman #701 & #702 spoil events from FC, so it is best to consider reading Final Crisis after you finish Batman #683 and before you read #701. I think… you see you don’t really need to read Final Crisis to understand Morrison’s Batman arc, but it does enhance it. All you really need to know about FC to follow along with Morrison’s main Bat-arc, is that Bruce “Kills” Darkseid, but in the process “dies” himself and is sent skipping through time, fighting his way back to the present, as seen in the coming series The Return of Bruce Wayne. The trade titled Time And The Batman contains Batman #700-#703 and the Batman R.I.P. TPB contains the Last Rites issues.

 4: “Batman and Robin”

Bruce is dead/missing and Dick Grayson is now Batman, while Damian is Robin. If you want to know how this came about, read Battle for the Cowl – which is not written by Morrison and has no real bearing on his story. The most important thing to keep in mind is that Batman and Robin #1 – #16 take place at the same time as The Return of Bruce Wayne #1 – #6 . If you’re reading them “together” the only thing to remember is that TRoBW #6 is meant to synch into the big reveal on the last page of B&R #15, so as long as you read TRoBW #1-#6 before you reach the end of B&R #15 you’re golden. The Morrison run through the first sixteen issues of Batman and Robin has been released in various trade volumes: Vol. 1: Batman RebornVol. 2: Batman vs. RobinVol. 3: Batman & Robin Must Die!

4a: “The Return Of Bruce Wayne” and “Batman: The Return (One Shot)”

Bruce Wayne is skipping through time and if you synchronize reading issue six of TRoBW , with reading issue #15 of Batman and Robin you’ll be perfectly caught up. After you make your way through all of that, you will read what is essentially the first issue of Batman Incorporated, Batman: The Return,  a one shot that will lead us to the actual first issue of Batman Inc. The Trade contains all six issues.

 5: “Batman Incorporated”, “Leviathan Strikes” and “Batman Incorporated Volume 2″ (The end)

Batman Incorporated is the globetrotting adventures of The Goddamned Batman as he recruits “Batmen” all over the world, while simultaneously hunting down – and being hunted by- “Leviathan” – a shadowy person and/or group embroiling the Dark Knight in a complex, systematic and long-term attack. This is actually the most straightforward chapter out of the arc so far, it follows along easily from Batman Inc. #1 – #8 then ends with the double-sized one-shot, Batman Inc. Leviathan Strikes! Leviathan Strikes is DC editorial’s hasty attempt to wrap things up to fit more nicely in with their absurd New 52 structure; it basically consists of what would have been issues #9 and #10 of the regular Batman Inc. series.

The trade collection of Batman Incorporated collects all eight issues of the first volume AND the Leviathan Strikes One-shot. The Second Volume collects the rest of the series.

  2. I have read through the entire Morrison arc and the stuff related he didn’t write once and am now way back through. I’m glad I’m doing so because there is so much Morrisonhas in this arc that it is absorb it all In one reading. Thanks so much for the list. It is because of the Morrison Batman run that I started reading comics again after taking almost a decade of not buying a single issue or tpb.

  4. Thanks so much for writing this! It was very helpful!

    I enjoyed Morrison’s run on Batman and Robin and really wanted to read RIP and the rest of his run but wasn’t sure how. But now I know so thanks! :)

  5. Have you thought about adding Miligan’s “Dark Knight, Dark City” from Batman #452-454? I found reading in the “chronologically correct” place, after Black Casebook but before the Batman prologue in 52, really adds to the experience, especially it’s your first time read of these great comics. When the relevance of Miligan’s story becomes apparent around RoBW, it really adds a great punch to what Morrison has done.

  13. I only get comics digitally and the three page dc universe #0 story isn’t available so can anyone here show me the three pages.

  14. Hi. Great read and really informative!
    The only thing I’m really confused about is the Resurrection of Ra’s al Ghul. You commented on this already, but I’d still like more information:
    Does GM consider this to be part of “his” epic? It’s just weird and annoying how other writers continued some of the books he wrote(Batman and Robin) as is the case with “the Resurrection”.
    If GM considers his issues part of “his” story, then what about the other writer’s issues?

    Also, a litte heads up:
    TPB means trade paperback. These are the floppy books without firm covers- not to be confused with actual hardcovers.

    • The Resurrection issues that Morrison wrote (and the overall arc of the story for that matter) are definitely in his continuity. They fill in a few scant details and take place chronologically in his timeline. However, for the other issues he himself did not write, there may be things which do not necessarily fit perfectly into his narrative, so buyer beware.

      When he left Batman and Robin those issues were no longer in “his” official continuity at all though. The events did take placed in the official overall DC company-wide continuity though, so in a sense they may have had repercussions on his story A bit confusing, but in the end if his name isn’t on it as writer then it’s easy to disregard it in the overall compositional structure of his long-form narrative.

      All that being said though, please remember that DC continuity is quite fucked now anyhow, with the new 52 it’s just a clusterfuck and littered with inconsistencies and holes. I simply consider Morrison’s story to stand on its own – it’s much easier that way ;)

      Also, yes, you are correct. At one time I worked in the publishing industry for almost a decade and I should know better about the TPB – most comic readers refer to these collected editions (whether hard or soft cover) as trades though, so it’s truly just me being lazy in my descriptions. But good eye!

      Thanks for reading!

  15. I’m curious if Batman Inc. will continue after Leviathan is wrapped up? I mean is this worldwide network of Bat soldiers going to end once Leviathan is taken care of or is DC going to let this series keep running and have multiple stories for the different Bat(people) around the world? I’m interested to see if this continues and if so how the Justice League is going to react to the army Bruce Wayne has amassed.

    • That really depends on the end of Morrison’s narrative. I can almost guarantee that if there is a way for DC to continue it they’ll do so; whoring it out to every shit writer they can scrounge!

  16. Awesome list, man! Thanks a ton. Hitting up the back issues to educate myself on this epic Morrison arc. Got to about the beginning of the Black Fist stuff(still pretty early in) when I learned it is STILL going on with the current Batman Incorporated. Glad I found this list, it will make the journey much smoother…and I may have to add Batman Inc to my pull list from now on as well. I’ll get around to them eventually lol

  18. Thanks so much for this – it makes my life that much easier. :)

    I just have one question. If I wanted to read the Red Robin ongoing alongside this, how would I go about that?

  20. Thanks for making this :) It’s a great help :D
    The first ever comic i bought was Batman 700, then i bought 701 and 702, it was very confusing for me ahahaha

  21. Hi, your reading order is great, but I’ve been wondering where the Time Masters: Vanishing Point #1-#6 and Bruce Wayne: The Road Home One-Shots books fit in. I know they aren’t written by Morrison, but they have some important reveals in them.

    • Hey – thanks for stopping in!

      Yes, since those stories were not written by Morrison they are not part of his canonical story arc. They may be in larger DC continuity, but they had no bearing on anything in Morrison’s story. They wrote them with zero input from Morrison and they had no idea how or if they would fit back in with his work.

      That being said, they both basically take place during his “absence” following the events of Final Crisis.

  22. Thanks for writing this blog. Can you also please put a list of the TPB’s sequence that one would need to read in an order? There seems to be too many TPB’s out there with multiple releases (for example ‘The Black Glove’ has both regular and deluxe editions and it seems the deluxe edition combines ‘Batman & Son’ and ‘The Black Glove’ TPBs, is that correct?), so I just want to make sure to not waste money by buying duplicate material and also since I do not own any of the single issues. Also, a side question – What is the exact purpose of the Batman ‘Annual’ releases? Are they stand alone stories or part of an ‘arc’ or a collection of some stories that were already released in issues from that year? Thanks again for your time.

    • Thank you for reading!

      The new Deluxe Edition of the Black Glove TPB is the only updated version of any of the TPBs that I have on the list – I updated the explanatory paragraphs for the Batman & Son and Black Glove entries to reflect this development. So with that being changed you can still follow what the guide provides in way of TPB order and release. The only change would be that if you do decide to get The Black Glove Deluxe Edition then you’d be able to skip the Batman & Son TPB. It is definitely the better buy; a Hardcover for $19? That’s way better than two softbacks at nearly the same price for each!

      If that is too scattered for you, here it is in its own handy list:

      1. The Black Case Book (optional background stories not written by Morrison, but referenced in his work)
      2. Batman & Son (If you buy the Deluxe Edition of the Black Glove TPB, you can skip this stand alone TPB because it is included in the Deluxe Edition below)
      3. The Black Glove (this now comes in two flavors The regular edition TPB, which only contains the Black Glove story line and now, the Deluxe Edition, which contains all the Batman & Son AND the Black Glove issues in one volume.)
      4. The Resurrection of Ra’s al Ghul (again, not entirely necessary for Morrison’s run, but does contain issues written by him which have bearing on his story)
      5. Batman R.I.P. and Last Rights
      6. Time and The Batman (Time and The Batman and Final Crisis take place concurrently.
      7. Final Crisis
      8. Batman & Son Volume 1 – Batman Reborn
      9. Batman & Son Volume 2 – Batman Vs. Robin
      10. Batman & Son Volume 3 – Batman & Robin Must Die
      11. The Return of Bruce Wayne (the last issue of The Return of Bruce Wayne should synch up with the penultimate issue included in Volume 3 of Batman & Son)
      12. Batman Incorporated

      And there it is; all the TPBs – then you’d need to start picking up the currently running issues of Batman Incorporated volume 2 at your LCS ,- which at the time of this writing, has only been 2 issues – we are currently waiting on a delayed issue #3 to be released.

      Otherwise, to answer the question regarding annuals:
      Traditionally in the past Annuals have not been chronologically placed in continuity but have mostly been canon. Meaning that the Annual wouldn’t necessarily continue a story or complete a story that was going on in the regular series at the time – but they were all usually canon stories, meaning that they did in fact take place in the “main” Batman universe and “really happened”; this way anything which occurred in an annual could be referenced or have effects on the regular story lines which appeared in the main books.

      The “new 52″ Batman Annual #1 that was recently released and was written by Scott Snyder however, was directly in chronological continuity, meaning that when it came out it did indeed contain a story that was directly placed between two issues of the regular Batman comic. So to put it simply – it was basically just another issue in the series and if you didn’t read it when it was released then there would be gaps in the story line Snyder was writing.

      I hope that makes some sense! Please let me know if you need some clarification on the this, or any other topic!

      Again, thank you for reading!

      • Thank you so much for your reply. I am still trying to wrap my head around GM’s Bat-stories and this will go a long way in helping me and other readers in the same boat. Who would have thought comics would one day get so complicated to follow ;-0 But I am obsessed with the “theory of Batman” and hopefully will be able to finish reading all of these in the near future. Thank you for commenting on the annuals as well.

        • No problem! I hope it helps because we need more people reading these “complicated” comics ;) – if they do then more readers will start to demand that sort of complexity and depth in other stories/series and the shallow writers will have to step up their game to stay pertinent as the medium evolves around them!

  27. I have just one question. when does Morrison’s grand arc end? Also, does it have any connection 52? Or 52 is just a total complete revamp?
    P.s: This list helped loads! Thanks a lot.

    • Well, the end point will be sometime this year or early/mid 2013 (depending on shipping delays and whatnot) the “new” Batman Inc. starts up again in just a month or two here.

      It will start re-numbered, due to the New 52. Otherwise though, the New 52 doesn’t fit into anything else Morrison has written yet. The New 52 is just a clusterfuck of continuity because things that happen in Morrison’s arc affect the Bat-verse forever… but DC has chosen to ignore or just artlessly shoehorn them into what is happening in the New 52.

      TL;DR:
      The NEW 52 has no real bearing on anything in Morrison’s arc.

      Thanks for reading!
