Strong two-part story that follows in the vein of Allan Moore's iconic Superman Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow?. Gaiman's story has the same punch but fails to deliver the knockout blow by hitting us with the point over and over again. Andy Kubert's art helps elevate the volume by simultaneously offering us his own clean, dynamic take on Batman while also paying homage to previous Bat-artists as well.

My favorite part of this collection is the bonus story from Batman Black & White - Volume 1, a wondefully subversive take on Batman (with equally impressive art by Simon Bisley) that shows us what really happens to the Caped Crusader when the day is done.
