Batman #674 – Writer Grant Morrison, Pencils Tony Daniel, Inks Sandu Florea, Colors Guy Major.
We finally get the story behind the three Batmen and it is a good one that makes solid comic book sense.
The military had a contingence plan in case Batman every dies and these three men were chosen.
Batman escapes from the death trap in a classic Houdini manner and then tries to capture the Batman who took him down but is too beaten up to do so. Morrison has hit his stride with this arc and Batman has never been better. The whys & who is behind what is happening is creating a sense of menace that is rare in Batman.
Tony Daniel has rocked to the top of the charts and is right now the second best artist drawing Batman (only behind Jim Lee).
Morrison is close to crafting one hell of a definitive run on this book.
