I'm going to wait until Dark Knight: Boy Wonder and All-Stars # 9 is released in hardcover or trade before I pick it up.
It's not a parody. It is at least partly a satire (as is practically everything Miller writes) and obviously deliberately so.
It's also fantastic.
I love it. First to the last page.
It's always nice to see a writer at least trying to do something a bit different, a bit more personal.
But hey, as usual 30% of people are going to say that's awesome, 30% that's the worst crap ever and 30% that's average. (and 10% don't care)
One thing kind of made me smile though :
Before you decide if you're going to dislike or not something you need to know what others people think of it first ? Really ?before I decide that I dislike something I like to get others opinions on the matter

The art is very pretty, but I couldn't stick with it particularly when we started to get issues six months to a year late. Yes, you read that correctly.
At first it was billed as mainly being about Robin's journey, and I could almost see it in the first three issues or so: this is Batman without a Robin, and a Batman without a Robin is a real bastard. Then the lateness and his portrayals of Wonder Woman and Black Canary were just so weird and offputting I stopped bothering.
I really like Millers approach to All-Star, since it is in the DKR and DKSA universe I can see how this Batman becomes the old bitter man he is in those. The main reason I like this though because it is more realistic, if a man dressed up as a Bat hed have to be crazy, and the fact that this Batman is more violent is a plus as well because even though it works in the other books in the world Miller creates I dont think standard Batman would cut it so
Sorry to bring back an old thread but better than starting a new one.
I did end up getting issues 1-10 and really enjoyed them. Brucey was a bit of an ass but thats what gives the series its personality really.
Any news on Dark Knight/Boy Wonder final six issue continuation from this?
