Repurposed Review

Batman & Robin #13(DC Comics; Grant Morrison/Frazier Irving): There's so much going on in this book that things feel a bit blurred, but in an enjoyable way. The issue feels like it was structured in a way that was meant to overwhelm the reader a bit in order to get a sense of how frantic things are in the story. It worked enough for me to consider it a success, but could definitely vary in effectiveness from reader to reader. Though it could be considered mostly setup, it is easily one of my favorite issues of the title, through a combination of the anticipation it built in me for the next issue and providing my favorite Damien scene since the character was introduced. Morrison weaves his magic and Irving is a perfect fit for its delivery. Can't wait for the next issue.
