And no, I don't see anything related to the superhero genre being positive for the industry. It can be good for the superhero genre, sure. But that only means it'll serve as a detriment to the medium itself, because it does nothing but continue the 50 year old public perception of the word "comic book" referring to the superhero genre, which has done nothing but hurt comic books as a whole for a very long time.
Ok, I want Morrison to finish what he was doing, but this actually looks like at least a disposable but enjoyable read. it doesn't look like anything special by any means, but it looks like quick fun to get my Batman vs Joker fix.
Anyone else get the feeling that this might be trying to be in line with the way the Dark Knight ended? I don't know. It makes sense. If it's supposed to get new readers, those readers most likely watched the Dark Knight. EVERYONE did.
