    I'm thinking about getting this one. I'm really intrigued by the whole concept of it. Any opinions?

    Stories and art are hit and miss, but well worth a buy.

    The highlights for me were the Two-Face story by Bruce Timm and a story where Batman confronts an abusive father. It's well worth the money.

    Is the story by Denny O'Neil any good?

    This book was a big letdown for me. Mostly lame stories, and horrible art. (with a few exceptions of course)

    Some stories are alright and if you're buying the new version with the jim lee cover it has some artwork in the back. I would personally go to a borders or barnes and noble and read it there rather than actually purchase it though :ninja:

    Some stories are hit and miss as already mentioned, I suggest buying the individual 4 issues instead of the TPB which is cheaper that way.

    depends on what you normally like.
    its impressive how the artists/writers can tell a concise story in only a handful of pages.
    if you personally like a wider range of comic styles (not just the standard superhero look), you'll probably really like it.

    What's the deal with B&W anyway? Is it a bunch of mini stories collected?

    And the gimmick is it's black and white?

    Okay. Whatever.

    the gimmick is that a bunch of famous creators get together and are allowed to write/illustrate whatever the hell they want about batman in about 6 to 10 pages.
    its a good showcase of what you can you do with the character

    I found it pretentious and tedious.
