I like that belt, a quite spiffy take on the pouch look.
I'm not sure if that's even Batman in the 5th and 6th panel, look at his mask and ears. They look different from those in panel 3.
I did think that Batman with the gun looked a little off.
The art will definately be good, but I'm skeptical on Miller's writing. His all star Batman and Robin was somewhat just good for laughs in my opinion, but it was ok I guess.
It will all be Neal Adams now including the writing, but maybe he will still use some of Miller's ideas.
Miller was just helping out with the dialogue anyhow. Neal Adams already stated Batman will be gruff. So even withouth Miller we will see some hardcore Batman in this.
Yeah, I noticed. It's Batman. Neal Adams explained:
Newsarama: "Odyssey" implies that it covers a long time period. Since you mentioned Batman with guns, which was very early in his crime-fighting career, will this comic be covering a long span of time?
Neal Adams: Well, we have this magical thing we call a flashback. So the story doesn't really take place over a long period of time, but you do get flashbacks that make the point even more clear, revealing the parts that add up to the whole.
But yes, it flashes back to the very beginning. Batman's very first case. "Why are my ears flopping in the breeze? I guess I'd better make them stiffer."
Yeah this is really going to be some violent stuff.
Liking the utily belt design. I wonder if DC will just copy the design when Bruce comes back, blue/dark belt with a yellow front. Aquaman is looking quite outrageous too.
Neal Adams proves that even at his age he can still draw better than the young punks in comics today.
Neal Adams....always great work from him.
Get a extended look at Batman Odyssey #1 !!!!!!!!
Looks pretty good. Just when I thought I was out of the comics world, they pull me back in. . . . .
Is that Deadman?
Yep. Deadman and Aquaman so far have been confirmed to appear.
Well, I'm glad one of those guys is showing up.
Aquaman's redesign is quote outrageous!
Hooks for feet?
Interesting. It's an extended look at the flashback on that train from the beginning of his crime-fighting career as Batman.
Very interesting to see Bruce comitting a murder. Alot of writers have had the early Batman make someone commit suicide or not rescue them from a death trap, but Neal Adams has balls by having Bruce actually kill someone. Really interested in this project.
To me that last page looks like it's all some virtual reality/Danger Room simulation. Perhaps that's the point, it's easy to use guns in a fantasy setting, but in real life?
