I quite enjoyed the prequel to Batman R.I.P, and Grant Morrison's storytelling. I especially liked the first third of the story, although it was a classic trope, the second story interesting, and the last sets up for Batman R.I.P. I loved the switching between J.H Williams III and Tony S. Daniel's art styles. The colourists and inkers did a fantastic job.

But this time, an unknown adversary - brilliant, patient, and utterly evil - has been manipulating the Dark Knight from behind the scenes. The invisible hand has inserted a traitor in the midst of an international club of Batman-inspired heroes and placed murderous Batman impersonators deep with the ranks of the Gotham City Police Department - a hand known only as...The Black Glove, the man who will kill Batman in the tale that culminates in BATMAN R.I.P! Now, to stop this mysterious mastermind, Batman must delve into some of his earliest - and strangest - cases, whilse pushing his mind, body, and soul to their very limits. Can even the Caped Crusader escape the Black Gloves lethal grasp?
