Batman Incorporated, Vol. 1: Demon Star - Grant Morrison, Chris Burnham, Frazer Irving, Andres Guinaldo I had really liked the pre-Flashpoint version of [b:Batman Incorporated, Vol. 1|10863384|Batman Incorporated, Vol. 1 |Grant Morrison|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1320415493s/10863384.jpg|15778514], so I was actually looking forward to the New 52 version. It wasn't exactly what I was expecting. Instead of focusing on Batman Incorporated itself, the way that the previous version had and the title implied, it's instead largely about the conflict between Bruce and Talia, with their son Damian as both prize and battleground. How much you like this will depend entirely on how much you can invest in the storyline. Which is likely dependent on how much you like Damian as Robin. And Tim is still my favorite Robin. That said, this is probably one of the more important Bat-adjacent comics right now, so that's something to keep in mind. Don't care for the art, though. Neither particularly attractive nor particularly innovative, it's serviceable, but no more than that.
