Eye of the Gorgon
This anticipated series rolls onwards, however this issue wasn’t met with as much praise as the first. Have no fear, things do pick up later on. This issue is all about the back story, and you’ve just got to trust Grant Morrison and his genius for storytelling to understand that some issues are building blocks for bigger and better stories that are still to come.
Characters In This Issue
A lot of characters from the past and from around the DC Universe make appearances in this issue, for example Lex Luther. Also Black Adam (An anti-hero from Ancient Khandaq which is a country near Egypt), Dr. Ebenezer Darrk (President of the League of Assassins), Ubu (The bodyguard of Ra’s), and Ra’s al Ghul himself. Of course, this issue also features Damian Wayne as Robin and his mother Talia.
Summary Of "Eye of the Gorgon"
Batman and Talia al Ghul don’t get along very well, that’s a known fact. Like any normal couple of parents who aren’t getting along, things can be kind of difficult when it comes to raising their child. Throw a centuries-old League of Shadows and a couple of crime fighters into the mix and you can imagine that it’s not easy for Batman and Talia, with Robin right in the middle. They don’t want their same things for the kid, and that’s a major conflict in this series.
Notes About Batman Incorporated Issue 2
- The cover features Gaucho, Halo, Freight Train, The Hood, Looker and Batwing but they’re not actually in the issue – they’re just on the cover.
- This is an origin story, which perhaps has gotten somewhat colder reviews from fans, but again – don’t worry – things will pick up soon. Remember, this is written by an absolute master of the art form.
Creators Of This issue
Last time, we featured Grant Morrison, the writer of this series and many more epic collections of comic books over the years. Now, we’re going to profile Chris Burnham. Chris Burnham is relatively new to the scene, at least on big projects like Batman, Incorporated but he’s had experience on smaller projects in the past. He was brought into DC just to work on another Grant Morrison project, which lead to him being hired exclusively. Aside from Batman, Chris has worked on Officer Downe and Nixon’s Pals as well. As we feature more and more issues from this series, we’ll do our best to profile all of the major staff members who had a role in the book, from the cover artists, editors, pencilers and everyone in between.
