"Batman" team off to a good start

The first issue of Grant Morrison and Andy Kubert’s run on “Batman” came out this week, and it’s a lot of fun. The midaction opening threw me for a loop, but it was clear sailing after that. The best part was Morrison’s notion that Batman has been so busy being the Caped Crusader that he’s forgotten how to be Bruce Wayne. (Faithful Alfred the butler has to keep reminding him to drop the growl in his voice that he adopts as Batman.) So Bruce gets to take the spotlight this issue - and even has fun! Despite DC’s claims to the contrary, it really does seem that the DC universe has lightened up a bit after a few grim years.
