I loved the artwork, the storytelling was unfortunately pretty wonky. Overall, it didnt really "flow" compared to other Batman works.

It was alright, overall. Not the greatest story, but Morrison's take on Batman is interesting.The art was wonderful, real, and raw.

Great art, great story. Maybe not the best, but if you're a fan of Batman, definitely worth a read.

How is it that batman will beat up/arrest a criminal who robs people or some goofy but fairly harmless super villain, yet batman's son (such a dumb idea) can go around murdering people yet he does nothing to the guy? This is whats wrong with American comic books, every 3 months someone new starts writing them and there's no real constant to the characters.
Its just stupid.
Also Damian as the name of his son who is evil? Really? Wow that's such creative writing. I guess they felt Kane was too close to bane and might confuse the loyal readers.
Or the fact that 1000s of disposable ninjas know that Bruce Wayne is batman yet no one seems to care?

Comic legends Grant Morrison (All Star Superman, Seven Soldiers) and Andy Kubert (Ultimate X-Men, 1602) join forces to bring you an unforgettable tale of the Dark Knight. After Batman faces down an army of winged horrors in a no-holds barred, bone-crunching superbrawl among the treasures of London's Pop Art Museum, Batman receives the greatest shock of his life when he discovers that he has a son. Sparks fly when the new addition to the Bat-family is introduced to Batman's adopted son, Robin, the Boy Wonder. Which one will be chosen to carry on the legacy as Gotham's protector?

Welcome to Gotham City, a party ten miles long and six miles wide. From the Hill to Cathedral Square, from Amusement Mile to Blackgate Penitentiary, a 21st-century American Babylon has shouldered its way up from the mudflats and sauntered into the spotlights, eager to dazzle and seduce the world. Gotham City, where the greasy electromagnetics of human need, hope, and fear radiate into a new January night so rank you can taste it like tinfoil on your fillings. Where crime swaps spit with high society and everything’s for sale. Where grimy clouds snag and burst on the vicious needle points of world-famous Deco-Industrial superscrapers on Wall Street and Levi and spill out more, and more, and more of the burning glamorous downpour Gothamites call rain and know so well. It’s the kind of town that whispers “baby” while it’s picking your pockets, that promises the world and delivers the gutter or vice versa, and puts out your lights with a kiss or a bullet, then forgets your name before dawn
