Batman: Gothic – must read Batman stories …16

Before Grant Morrison, I’m not sure anyone thought to answer the question: “Where did Bruce Wayne go to school?” We know about Wayne’s training to become the Batman, but in Gothic, we get a glimpse into Bruce Wayne’s life before his parents were murdered. This ties into a series of grisly murders in Batman’s early days in the cape and cowl.

Gothic is a detective story, a horror story, and a thriller that teams Morrison with the great Klaus Janson. Religion and Batman aren’t married in comics as often as they should be. Morrison plays it perfectly. For those a little worried about a “Morrison head-trip,” relax. Nothing in these pages will damage your brain… too much.
