Batman Incorporated #8 (It's just like TRON! Spoilers)

A strange issue. I liked a lot of the ideas raised here, and Internet 3.0 is a great setting, but the artwork from Scott Clark was pretty bad and it was hard to follow what was going on, which made the story less good than it could have been if Burnham had drawn it. I suppose Clark is a good fit because his art is computer-generated, but it didn’t work for me. It’s also a shame that this is the last issue and #9 and #10 have been cancelled, as it was yet more Leviathan build-up that we’ll have to wait a while for the pay-off to. It’s also a shame that the reboot is turning Oracle back into Batgirl, as I felt she worked really well as the defender of Web 3.0, it allowed her to still be a positive role model and hero for disabled people, but also get in on the action digitally.

I really wanted to see more of this idea but nope DC goes back to the old ideas. At least for now.

i had a really hard time reading this issue.. and i love that the blurb at the end said Batman and Batgirl in action this fall (or something to that effect) i wonder how much they are gonna change that issue.

Yuck! An unoriginal story with truly eye-flummoxing panels.

I'm so bummed we won't be seeing more of Barbara in the net or Tim as leader of the Outsiders.

I just read this one today and found the art to be overly distracting. In some panels, it was very difficult to tell what was going on. I do agree that Oracle defending Web 3.0 could have been an interesting spin on the character, but this was a pretty poor introduction to the concept.
