Then you should enjoy most of these stories as they are pre-reboot versions. But even "Gothtopia" beige batman is kind of nice, too. Heck even Brightbat (Batwoman) successfully pulls off a light orange & blue combo that works well. The "Gothtopia" kick-off story is quick, concise and a nice setup for the action to get started. Poison Ivy is actually the first to see something is wrong and tries to alert everyone but she is quickly taken down by Batman and Catbird. However that's enough to set off a flag in Batman about his surroundings.

All my comic shop had was the Capullo variant cover, though.

I'm wondering about that

I went to several stores and only saw the Capullo variant (except for one book with the Miller cover) on the shelves
