From the flying Batmobile to the crazy (I'm assuming new) villain this had pretty much everything you could want in an action/adventure Batman comic. Morrison is oftentimes his own worst enemy when writing superhero comics but for the most part he stays out of his own way here and delivers a super fun comic that is immediately accessible despite the last convoluted mess of a year in the bat-family books. I loved the interaction between Dick, Alfred and Damian and how it pretty much explained how and why everyone is in the roles that they're in in a matter of pages.
When previews of B&R have been posted on OH, there have been lots of complaints about Quietely's art. Those people are fucking crazy. The design, the textures, the motion, everything on the page really makes it clear that Quitely is one of the top three or four artists working in comics today. Even if his run on this book is going to be short, if nothing else he's given us the best Batmobile in ages. And the splash page with the Paracapes? Gorgeous.
