If I had been fortunate enough to have read this in 1991 when it was first published in LotDK I would have been an OG Grant Morrison fan for sure. On the one hand this story fits snuggly into its era. It would not have been impossible for Dennis O'neal to have written something similar, certainly 'this' Batman is unmistakably O'Neal's Batman. The story itself however, as written, with all its bizarre occult complexity, its complex temporal layering, could be no one but Morrison. The art is one shade lighter than, say, a Kelly Jones Batman and nowhere near as surreal. Very well done. Shockingly so for this early in any writer's career.

An early Grant Morrison written arc from the Legends of the Dark Knight series. It's helped immensely by Janson's style of art, which fits the brooding dark world of Batman quite well, and shows early signs of Morrison's tendency to write everything as if he's high on drugs. Probably because he is.
