"I read Batman: RIP and it didn't even actually show his death. It just left this open-ended mess and the story itself was almost incomprehensible."

THANK YOU!! I thought I was the only one who was left going "what... the... drat?" after reading it.

doriansilver: I totally agree. I read that recently and it was one of the best Batman comics I've ever read. I recommended it to it a whole bunch of my friends. :)

Regardless of the mess batmans "death" left in its wake, Whatever Happened To The Caped Crusader? still doesn't fail to reduce me to a small, sobbing child. (It's Batmans funeral issue/send of.) That was one of my favorite things I've read from Neil Gaiman, and had some of the most powerful scenes in recent Batman memory.

jinxiejae: I'd guess that the death of Batman wasn't there because it was too confusing and poorly written (not to mention that superheroes dying and coming back is becoming rather contrived). I read Batman: RIP and it didn't even actually show his death. It just left this open-ended mess and the story itself was almost incomprehensible. The more I read of Grant Morrison's stories, the more I wish they'd find a new Batman writer.

I've read several of them, the Magneto/Wolverine one was really great although the whole Phoenix saga was quite good too, that one still lingers so qua impact the Phoenix storyline was much bigger. To say the least.

I have never really been a comic bok fan, but I thought the moment in the Sin City series in 'The Yellow B*****d' where Hartigan shoots himself to save the girl. I still remember after that intial dialoge about how she would never be safe; then when you turned that page it just hits you with that frame - didn't expect it at all.

Ok, I gotcha - somehow, in knowing the essence of this moral conflict that minor misdescription eluded me.

"Where were you the first time you picked up these issues?"

I would assume at a comic book store.

Though as much as I like comics, I haven't read any of these.

It suprised me when Dr. Manhattan killed Rorshach at the end of Watchmen.

I'm sad that Marvel's Infinity Gauntlet series didn't make it. That was definitely the high point of my childhood love affair with Marvel comics. Thanos wielding the power of God, and all the forces of the universe coming together to try and stop him, but still failing; it felt truly epic, at least to my young self. And him finally only being beaten because of a stupid move and his own hubris. It was good good stuff.

@cobrakiller: That was the movie version. The comic book version involved a genetically engineered psychic alien. Even though it sounds rather strange when you describe it, I actually though the book version was much better than the movie version.

wasnt it dr. Manhattans power that was used to make it the earth vs. him? then he finds it justifiable and leaves on his own accord after killing Rorschach.

" He claims to have been acting in the interest of mankind, as people needed to be prepared for an inevitable alien invasion."

...No. That's retarded, and completely defuses the central dilemma of the story. He was trying to unify humanity against an imaginary outside threat, as he believed the only way people could peacefully coexist was as allies against a common enemy. The question is whether killing seven million people is justified by ending war.

In what way cranberry? The comic did indeed involve a staged 'alien invasion.'

Was that summary of Watchmen a parody or is the author a complete idiot?
