Quick thought on
#8 -- I cheered, I laughed, I feared, I cried.
It's fitting that Damian's last partner is also his first -- Dick Grayson. And when they resumed their partnership for this final stand, I cheered.
When Damian and Dick went into battle together, there were flourishes from the old
television series. I laughed.
When Dick fell in battle against the cloned thing, when Damian made a stand on his own against the thing that outclassed him in every way, I feared.
And when Damian's battle against the cloned thing reached its harrowing climax, when Batman raced across Gotham on the back of Man-Bat, when Batman cradled Damian's broken and lifeless body, I cried.
Good job, Grant Morrison.
