i like them both, but the oval-less bat makes no damn sense. it has no reason to exist on any costume.
but that is by in large the way the suit has been portrayed for at least the last 10 to 15 years in comics and on film. The oval just started to reappear in things like Dark Knight comics and Batman Earth One.
Basically what has happened in American comics is people have been trying to write their own versions of Dark Knight and Watchmen for the past 20 years.
The point that comics are at now is nothing compared to where they once were. And it'll never get back there either.- Kurosawa
