no, the far, FAR too short Mike W. Barr/Alan Davis run (569-574). my all-time favorite Detective run, and Barr's take on Batman's personality may still be my favorite ever.

See - comics like that are timeless. I have Morrison's anniversary Batman issue. Bleh. Or anniversary issues used to kickoff a major storyline. Blah. Give is a nice, well drawn, not full of pin up art or splash pages comic.
And yes that comic is awesome. I think I love Davis' Batman almost as much as I enjoy Aparo's

I'm sure it will be awful, but I feel like that's a good time for a sales gimmick.


holofoil covers. it's the only thing they haven't brought back from the 90's.

those 2, Neal, and Breyfogle are my Mt Rushmore of Bat-artists. just barely ahead of Newton and Colan.

Aparo is the definitive Batman artist for me. When I think of Batman comics, I picture his art.

Ditto. But those other 3 are right behind him.
