I must confess I am a booch fa. And love his work.
Issue 1 of the Black Bat was in my opinion great. It is a set up issue and its nice to see that it has not been rushed. The art is mind blowing and the writing will hook you in and that is where my only complaint comes in, it's too short. I am really looking forward to the next issue.
I would strongly recommend this issue to any batman fan as the character is a batman who kills.
