      About fifteen years ago, the Batman line of comic books ran a storyline entitled the “Knight’s End” story arc. The subject of this story was Batman’s crippling defeat at the hands of a new archvillian named Bane. The inspiration for this story line was obviously the very successful Death of Superman story arc that DC Comics published

      prior to Knight’s End. As you have probably surmised, Batman survived his thrashing at the hands of Bane and continued to remain the lead of his own popular line of comic books…until now.

      Yes, DC Comics has returned to another “legendary hero gets whupped” storyline in the form of BATMAN - RIP. What is most intriguing about this particular ...

      • story line is the fact that Batman neither dies nor is he beaten up. Instead, he is driven insane. Basically, the plot deals with a secretive villain named the Black Mask giving Batman an overdose of drugs. The result is that Batman develops a bizarre, disassociative disorder rendering him insane.

        Much of the storyline follows a surrealist structure. This

        makes the storyline very unique. Unfortunately, it also makes the plot confusing and hard to follow at various points. In that regard, it becomes somewhat of a mixed bag. There are good elements and weak elements to this storyline. The good elements, however, override much of the weak spots.

        As such, this remains a recommended series even with its flaws.
