5.0 out of 5 stars Batman: Bruce Wayne Murderer (2014 Edition)
Reviewed in the United States on March 23, 2014
UPDATE 07/21/2014
I just received the revised copy for Batman: Bruce Wayne Murderer (2014 Edition), and I think all is well now.
This collection have:

Batman. The 10 Cent Adventure
Detective Comics 766-770
Batgirl 24,27
Nightwing 65-66, 68-69
Gotham Knights 25-29
Brids of Prey 39-41
Robin 98-99
Batman 599-602

I'm including pictures of the new table of contents, the back of the book, and the beginning of Purity (1 of 3) that was absent on the other edition.


So I just received the new Batman: Murderer tpb, the first of two TPB re-collecting the Murderer/Fugitive arc. The original trades edited issues (usually secondary titles like Batgirl) to only include pages relevant to the overall Murderer/Fugitive storyline, but left out entire important issues (like Batman 604) altogether. The solicits for the new trades looked good, but, as is pretty much always the case with DC nowadays, the solicits are purely theoretical and rarely (if ever?) an accurate listing of what is actually in the book. I had hoped that they'd just include everything, as I'd rather choose what issues or pages to skip than not be given the choice.

The new Murderer TPB unfortunately is another case of the solicits being wrong. It includes Detective Comics 769-770 but skips Detective Comics 768, the first of Greg Rucka's three part "Purity" storyline. The solicitations listed Detective Comics 766-767 as being in the new Murderer tpb (and they are), and 768-775 as being in the upcoming new Fugitive collection. They clearly decided to include more issues, but 768, for whatever bizarre reason, went AWOL and is not included in the new trade (though it was in the old trades). Even the Table of Contents is wrong, mislabelling 769 as "Purity Part 1" instead of part 2.

It's almost as if there's someone in DC's Collected Editions whose job it is to make sure any potentially "complete" collections leave at least one issue out. It's really unendingly frustrating. Why go through the trouble to reprint an already collected story and do it right if you're, you know, still going to leave stuff out? (Kind of like not even having a summary page, let alone the actual issues, from the Knightquest: The Search storyline in the recollected Knightfall TPBs, so there's no explanation for how Bruce Wayne heals from his Bane-induced injuries.)

3.0 out of 5 stars Average at best.
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on May 5, 2020
I never got round to reading this plot when it first came out despite it being a semi-big crossover event.
There’s a lot of content in here, which is always nice.
I’m assuming you know the basic plot of this comic, but is it a good plot?
It’s not bad but again it’s not one I highly rate either.
It’s nice for continuity, that aside it’s very hit and miss.
Big events like these you get a medley of writers and artists chipping into one big story and sometimes the plot can get lost or messy.
The plot is never lost, but it’s a messy plot with the odd bout of filler.
Like I said, it’s not a bad read but it’s just average.
Bruce Wayne absconds and abandons that persona and lives full time as Batman. It should work better than it’s been written.
Sadly the second part of this story, Bruce Wayne Fugitive seems to be out of print for some reason despite it being a ‘New edition’ so my recommendation is get the singular older copies (3 vols, pretty cheap on Ebay)
It’s not a bad time waster and it does have some good moments, but if you’re a casual reader then I’d avoid and especially because ‘Fugitive’ is out of print!
I’d probably recommend this comic for readers that are looking to fill in gaps in their Batman library and for the sake of continuity.

The comic is a big size, basic paperback.
You get some lovely art in my humble opinion! Paper is thick-ish and nice and glossy, so that’s a plus.
You get no extras but you do get an index at the start.
Thanks for reading! Any questions? Please don’t hesitate to ask.
