It's a fun run, I really enjoy reading it, and it's imo more entertaining than a couple of highly praised runs on the character

Rat shouts neek ad Batman saying "No thanks pal", I took a picture of that and posted it on my facebook album of comics before deleting that album entirely, that one is hilarious
It's funny cause the "neek" is how some people in my region say "f***"

No idea. It's Breyfogle's quote, not mine.

I realy realy realy want a good hardcover collection of this run, I own all the issues in triples (no kidding, one for the collection, one run in dutch and another complete US run for binding, but never got to it.) but I keep waiting to hear about collections before I start re-reading them. The entire run was collected in Italian though by Panini...

They sure keep us waiting for a collected edition...
It would be great if Snyder mentions this run as an inspiration for his Batman, that would most certain speed things up with DC.

Judging by the way he writes Batman he probably doesn't even know this run exists.

Those guys turned me into Batman fans. I don't know the complete run but what I know is awesome. The art is amazing, too.

I would love that. Definitely one of the most striking and moody Batman artists of all time. Really beautiful.
