Here is the latest cool comic book moment in our year-long look at one cool comic book moment a day (in no particular order whatsoever)! Here‘s the archive of the moments posted so far!
Today we take a look at the last issue of Grant Morrison’s Batman (before his run continues anew in Batman and Robin #1 next month).
The set-up of the issue (Batman #683, by Morrison and artist Lee Garbett) is that Batman is being held captive by the forces of Darkseid (ignore that background stuff and just concentrate on what Alfred says).
At the same time, we hear Alfred talking about Batman in the “future” where Batman is missing and considered dead, so this is the last we hear about Batman before his “death” in Final Crisis #6, and Morrison has Alfred Pennyworth give about the best send-off to Batman that you could imagine.
