Batman: The Return of Bruce Wayne #6 marks the culmination of Grant Morrison’s tale of the Caped Crusader's battle against Darkseid’s Omega Sanction.

The story begins at Vanishing Point. The future’s final moments before all things succumb to the effects of universal heat-death. With the…

The final sentence of my review of BATMAN: THE RETURN OF BRUCE WAYNE #3 for THE BATMAN UNIVERSE addressed my low expectations for #4. The announcement that penciler Georges Jeanty would replace long-time Grant Morrison collaborator, Cameron Stewart made me ultra-nervous. It was clear from Stewart’s statements on the matter, that he was not comfortable with the tight deadline attached to the issue.
