I agree it is a Tim Burton signature. It's when someone tries to argue it is "not a Batman film" that is just wrong.

Just as I used in my example...

Arkham Asylum has a much more gothic tone like McKean's other work. So is it not a Batman comic?

As I said, there are many many ways to interpret Batman. He can be gothic, lighthearted, dark, scary, campy, or anywhere in between. Try reading Batman: Nosferatu, it's only about 1000x more gothic than anything in Batman Returns.

The light that burns twice as bright burns half as long.
