Out of all of those whom have ever written for Batman, Grant Morrison is the most suited man to write Batman R.I.P. With that said, this is one of the greatest issues of Batman I have ever read. As soon as you open the cover of this issue you are greeted with a very memorable piece of art with Batman standing while Robin crouches beneath. Both standing in an aggressive pose with Batman screaming, “You’re Wrong! Batman and Robin will NEVER die!” It carries on, giving small glimpses of the Black Glove and finishes it all off beautifully by introducing The Joker in to the story. This is definitely a GREAT lead off to what promises to be one of the most important Batman stories ever told.

So I’ve come to the conclusion that I have a few options when it comes down to the path I want my life to take:

1. A therapist. I have always had a talent for helping people through tough situations and it makes me proud to be able to say this. I really enjoy doing it but I’m not sure if I would feel comfortable with accepting money for simply helping someone. With society the way it is now people need to have someone there for them.

2. A cop. I have an obsession with saving people (Probably why I love comics so much). A lot of this also roots back to my childhood, which I’ll admit wasn’t the greatest but I’ll touch on that later on if I feel like it. Bottom line is: If I could help one child not to have the childhood I had then that would make it all worth it. Not to mention it’s probably the closest that I would ever come to becoming a superhero.

3. A comic book writer. This would probably be the most fun for me, not quite as rewarding as the previous mentioned, but definitely the most fun. I have many ideas in mind for characters and story lines and I would be happy to give an example here but I have always been extremely paranoid about plagiarism. Don’t ask me why because it’s never really happened before, but I am.

That’s where I’m at right now. I’m only 21 so I know I have quite a bit of time to figure this all out but I do feel like I am very far behind on all of this. I remember when I was in high school and I thought I knew exactly what I wanted to be and how I was going to achieve my goals. But all of that seemed to disappear when I turned 18. So right now I have some thinking to do and with any luck I will figure out just what it is that I need to do and how to do it.
