Grant Morrison’s Batman

batman-inc-10-021

Grant Morrison is perhaps my favourite comic book writer. His works play with the very foundations of comic books and mess with your mind (in a good way). His run on Batman is historic and is required reading for any self-respecting Batman fan. This reading list came together as part of my plans to re-read and analyse Grant Morrison’s Batman work so after the reading list is a handy master list of all the posts I’ve made that are related to this ground breaking piece of comic book storytelling.
