Am I in the minority?
I hated this book. hated. Strong word, I know, but it was awful.
It seemed to me as if Tony had made it up in a hurry. He should stick to the art department. This genuinely felt like a filler issue. Just something to pass time until issue 700 comes around.
There's so much good stuff in the (overcrowded) Bat-verse right now, Bat-Girl, Red Robin are two books that have both been handled much better of late than the main title.
As a long time Batman fan I feel the main book has been ignored since Bruce Wayne vanished. All the action seems to be taking place in Batman and Robin. The Black Mask story-line was ok I guess, but why these last two issues have seemed sadly lacking.
