    I bought it and plan to get the rest of the series. It's good. And for me, that's saying a lot. I love the character of Batman but I'm usually disappointed by the comics.

    Well, usually Batman comics have been disappointing.

    I think the only ones that have been pretty good have been ALL STAR and MONSTER MEN.

    Well issue 2 of Monster men was even better than issue one IMO.

    I love the whole classic feel to this series.Strange is one demented dude.Really nice touch was showing him getting his subjects from Arkham.

    Jim Gordon is well written.His narration gives a great intro.Nice to know his thoughts when Gotham started to turn crazy with all these costume,theatrical characters popping up.

    Eagerly awaiting issue three :up:

    Issue 2 was even stronger than 1 surprisingly, anyone not getting this needs to, bound to be one of the classics.

    Definitely molding itself into a fine Batman story. If you're a Batman fan and you're not digging the Red Hood storyline I'd highly suggest picking up this miniseries in it's place. :up:

    Second issue was great. Had that noir, pulpish feel with Batman in his element.

    It came out this week.

    I got it today. Really good, Hugo is rather evil haha. The thing i hate about individual issues: the suspense in waiting for a month to see what happens next issue.

    Looking at how Wagner writes Batman, this might be close to my ideal Batman, though it might be a bit early to say so completely. Brutal, brooding, detective. Nothing true blue about this Batman.

    A number of panels reminds me of TAS.

    The art has that grim n' gritty feel, with a touch of film noir.:up:

    Issue two was pretty good I might add Matt Wagner to my list of favourite Batman writers. How many other Batman mini series have come out this year I've got:

    Dark detective
    Gotham county line (anyone else reading this)
    Jeklly and Hyde

    is there any others that I've missed?

    Sage, Wagner is the master of comic noir, check out Sandman Mystery Theater. Loving this version too, it incorporates most everything that makes Batman such a great character, has the feel of noir, the animated series, the long halloween, year one, and obvious continuity connection like Jim talking about batman saving his son, this is going down in history as one of the must read Batman stories.

    Well, that's the whole point in getting comic books. Waiting that month for the next issue and when it comes it's the most awesome feeling in the world. These trade paper back buyers just don't get it. :O

    I like how Wagner has written Batman here...quiet,methodical, and very efficient.

    He seems a lot less moody than in Wagner's trinity!
     
  25. Are you mad? Read some of the 1990 comics, they kick ass! Just look at the artwork, and the storyline's are really good.
