Did you read Count Vertigo?

You're crazy. The majority of the Batman ones were fantastic!

One-shots, monthly crossover, universe tie-in.

The 3 worst parts of comics are all happening at once right now... gross.

I wouldn't say that they were fantastic, but I was pretty content with the Batman ones I bought. I also really enjoyed the Superman, Aquaman, Flash, and Wonder Woman villain books.

The only ones I didn't really care for were the Justice League and Justice League of America books (asides from Black Adam).

Bane was really good. I liked how twisted Joker was. Ra's was awesome, and I like how he referenced O'neil's origins. The Killer Croc issue was definitely amazing. Harley Quinn was not that bad at first, then it became annoying. The riddler issue was boring.

I only read Two-Face, The Joker, The Riddler, Ra's Al Ghul and 2 of those were really boring and extremely uneventful (the former 2 not the latter). I skimmed through Killer Croc, Bane and Scarecrow and they seemed even lamer. If anything it just confirmed for me that I'm sick and tired of Batman's rogues. Especially since they're always used to tell the same type of stories over and over again.

Ever since Lemire took over the book the quality has jumped dramatically. It's worth a look.

It's over already? How long was it, like 3 issues? I read and liked the first issue, then decided I didn't need another $4 comic and dropped it again.

Did anyone read Batman Black & White #2? I enjoyed it a good deal more than the first issue, felt there was a higher ratio of hits to misses as opposed to #1. I could happily have read a whole issue of the Rafael Grampa story. Man, that guy is an amazing artist!

I'm sad to see Layman and Fabok leaving Tec. The new team has a lot of potential though.

I'm going to miss these guys too. They've really turned that book around. The past year has been awesome.

I dropped the book back when I was really tightening my belt and trying to be ruthless in dropping books, but I agree, it was an enjoyable run. I am intrigued by the Flash dream-team of Manapul and Buccaletto coming onboard, though.

Yeah, it's really odd. She hasn't posted ever since the news came out about Williams and Blackman getting fired from Batwoman.

Scott and Greg are killing it on Zero Year but then again I've been enjoying their run so I can't wait.

Is there any news regarding where Fabok is going? His art is amazing.

It's a shame his run is being truncated. His artwork had a real flair... commercial yet loose and dynamic.

I hope he sticks with Batman on something, as his version of the character is great. I miss really long runs on the bat-books. We need another era, not just yearly runs.

Capullo and the B&R artist whose name slips my mind don't seem to be going anywhere.

Gleason. The Batbooks have been blessed with artistic talent lately.
