    In conclusion, this is an amazing story and I do suggest you pick it up if you’re into the bigger questions that Batman can pose. Like the true nature of psychopathy, morality, and whether killing is good or bad if it is done for the safety of others. These are big questions and whenever a medium like comics is used to explore these ideas, we have truly outstanding literature. I don’t know where the story will continue from here, but this book spells awards to me personally.

    Batman Incorporated continues to be one of the titles I read first when it is released. I highly recommend others to pick it up as well. You will not be disappointed.

    As Joker Incorporated makes its move around the world, Joker has left Ghost-Maker with a disturbing choice—kill his minions one-by-one, or let the bombs he’s implanted in them go off and potentially kill thousands. This pits Ghost-Maker, who was always agnostic at best about Bruce’s mission, against some of his team—and there will be casualties. They come fast and furious this issue, with one already being teased at the end of last issue. This character always felt sort of marked as they were a hold-over from another series with a not-so-great reputation, but Brisson manages to build tension effectively throughout the issue. While the three different artists sort of break the immersion in this issue a little, it does have a great sense of theater thanks to the very different international Jokers—one potentially even switching sides. This has always been an action-driven comic, and it’s sticking to its strengths.

    The cacophony of Batman Incorporated continues full-speed ahead, resulting in an issue that’s still entertaining, albeit a little by-the-numbers. The fights between Batman Inc. and Joker Inc. occur in a scattered but kinetic context, one that is grounded by Ed Brisson’s sense of voice for the increasingly-large ensemble. While this is definitely a middle portion of what’s still in store, it’s certainly more than serviceable.

    Batman Incorporated #10 is a fairly decent issue. The Joker has raised the stakes, and I just hope that the writing can keep up.

    The biggest question here isn’t “should we be willing to kill the Joker,” but “why are we still talking about it?” Nearly every modern Joker story asks the same question over and over with readers capable of reciting the “correct ideology” back like the national anthem. Sadly, Ed Brisson isn’t breaking any new ground here. On a positive note, this is one of the best issues of this story. Outside of the goofy chase sequence, every member of Batman Inc. gets to face meaningful peril. We even get a cool look at Brisson’s version of Grant Morrison’s Dai Laffyn. However, there is little to gain in bringing up the “no kill rule” without having a new answer for it.
