How old is Batman? Grant Morrison explains realism in Comic Books

Acclaimed Batman writer explains why realism doesn’t matter in Comic Books. He’s Scottish, so it might be a little hard to understand him the first time. Really though, this is one of the few times he has spoken quite clearly compared to other interviews on the web.

Since 2006, Grant Morrison has been writing a highly praised tome on Batman. Here is a reading list  of the Bat-works he’s done…in case anyone else wants to start:

Part 1: Batman and Son

Part 2: Batman: The Black Glove

Part 3: Batman RIP

Part 3: Batman RIP

Part 5. Batman and Robin Vol. 1: Batman Reborn

Part 6. Batman and Robin Vol. 2: Batman Vs. Robin

Part 7. Batman: The Return of Bruce Wayne

Part 8. Batman and Robin Vol. 3: Batman and Robin Must Die!

You might notice that Part 4 is missing….well…a very crucial —but small—plot point is include in another graphic novel called “Final Crisis,” which was a huge crossover event that included all of DC comics heroes and villains in an epic battle. Out of the 350 some pages in Final Crisis, only 30 pages are relevant to Grant Morrison’s bat-arch. But if you want to give yourself a splitting headache, this is what “Final Crisis” looks like:

Part 4: Final Crisis
