Boosterrific Review: If there's anything to be certain about a Grant Morrison-written series, it is that the story won't make much sense when it's all over. This issue (and in fact this series) wants to be a bigger event than it is. The inevitability of Bruce Wayne's return steals any emotional impact. Batman, a rational detective who focuses on small-time crime, is a poor fit for all of the ridiculous god/time/fifth-world mumbo-jumbo that provides the thin veneer for a typically Morrison bit of meta-fiction (DC Heroes as modern gods/ideas) that suffers from taking itself far too seriously. It's not a terrible book: it's just not everything that it wants to be.
