It's a Marvel Knights book so I doubt it.

it being a marvel knights book only clouds the issue.

Not really. Every time I've read a book of his, it just ends up looking muddy. I guess other people seem to like his art, but it just makes the book nigh unreadable for me.

His Iron Man: The Inevitable mini with Joe Casey from a few years ago was pretty awesome too.

like I said, it depends, his tendency towards dark coloring recently hasn't helped.

Not being tied to continuity is supposed to be the point of the MK imprint now, isn't it? It used to just be for the extra dollar, but they overcharge on all their books now so there's no reason for MK to exist if the stories aren't at least pseudo-OOC.

Lapham did. It was fun. Deadpool even asks to his script. And it has Satanna.

His coloring stuff dark isn't a recent thing, it's a his entire career thing. I think it was just more noticeable in the Bruce Wayne book because everyone was dressed in black.

It was pretty bad. I couldn't tell the difference between Bruce and the bad guy.

Klarion was in DAY GLO Allred palate compared to Bruce Wayne.

He was just a bad choice for that issue. They should have used someone less stylized and more technical due to the nature of everyone wearing the same type of uniform.

I think Irving's style will be better suited for B&R where we'll get his version of existing characters.

Compared to Bruce Wayne. Compared to your average funny book it was dark.

edit: from what I remember of it anyway, I haven't read it in 5+ years.
