Holy blocks of text, Batman! This book was a chore to read for me. I like to read, but when it comes to comics the text should be short bursts, not giant walls covering a fourth of the page. This is definitely not the usual superhero book. It seems like more of an experimental project in writing and art. The art is toned down. You won’t find any giant muscles or skin tight clothing. People look normal, even Batman looks normal for a guy in a costume. It does a great job of giving that retro, noir vibe but falls short on excitement and character expression. I am all for experimentation and trying different things, especially from DC with Batman. But experiments are bound not to register with everyone and this one just didn’t strike home with me.
