CBR Review: Batman: The Return of Bruce Wayne #5

I recently reviewed Batman: The Return of Bruce Wayne #5 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "After a long delay and some help from Pere Pérez on art, Batman: The Return of Bruce Wayne #5 finally arrives this week and it’s one of the strongest issues of the series yet. As the series approaches its conclusion, Grant Morrison begins to draw connections not only with previous issues of this mini-series, but with his work on the character in Batman and Batman and Robin by exploring the days after the murders of Thomas and Martha Wayne. An amnesiac Bruce Wayne acting as a detective ostensibly hired to find the killer of his parents is a clever hook for the issue and finally places him in a role that’s as close to being Batman without actually being Batman."
