    I love it too.

    I know it's not the best written Batman around, but there's just something insanely fun about it. Plus, I'm still a pretty big fan of his art. Sure, it's inconsistent, but when it's good it's really good.

    Plus, I like Catgirl and I love how much he touches upon past continuity.

    EDIT: Originally I hated his run and was a pretty big detractor, but I really did grow to love it. 698 and 699 were pretty bad, though.

    I get a more Jim Lee/Frank Miller mix in this art rather than Quitely/art adams.

    His Batman is very close to Miller's and that scene with SUps, WW, and Bats would fit in real well as a page in All-Star Batman and Robin.

    I forgot to mention that I think Catgirl's costume is atrocious. Absolutely shockingly bad.

    Even Frank Miller's Catgirl in Dark Knight Strikes Back was better.

    Yeah it looks pretty bad, like a 90s Image Comic. I think Tony Daniel's writing is really dull and generic. It's a poor man's version of Jeph Loeb's work.

    It's quite a bold move for Tony Daniel to change up his art style at this point of his run but I commend him for taking the risk. Hope it works out nicely in the end as I'm sure many of us have an artist we can remember where such a gamble didn't quite hit the mark.

    Glad to hear that Catgirl and Catwoman will show up again. I found Catgirl's choice of costume amusing since after all she is just a kid/teen and I would expect it to be garish on the first attempt.

    I LOVE the new evolution of Daniels' art. Simply brilliant, so much better than the workmanlike job he was doing before. Truly a massive, MASSIVE improvement, combining two schools (Jim Lee and Frank Miller) of Batman artists into a really pleasing, unique whole.

    I wish he wasn't writing, though. I love what he is doing on Grant Morrison's two parter right now, and I'd like to see him get a better writer, or at least a co writer, for his stories.

    He says he is maturing as an artist and writer. What I see is his degression in both the forms. I hope atleast his art gets better. I hope all this was a side-effect of his illness and now when is again well, I hope
    that all will be well.
