View Full Version : Batman Odyssey (no spoilers)

Haven't seen any discussion about Batman Odyssey, so I thought I'd put in my 2 cents' worth. It's great to see Neal Adams doing Bats again. I've been a fan since his original run on Deadman and X-Men, which really gives away my age :laugh: He's also probably the greatest influence on my own work.
However, for all my love of Adams' art, the book is a hot mess. If you ever read any of Neal's writing in the Continuity books from the 90's, you'll find more of the same here. Thought balloons, clunky dialog, and just plain WTF moments abound. Nevertheless, I am still glad he's dong this series and will continue to follow it. Hopefully, all will work itself out.

^ Me, three. ^ And the reference to the "hot mess" / Neal's stuff from Continuity is spot on. Still, I did enjoy the fact that he made at least some attempt to produce a well-designed comic, with the somewhat over the top page designs and the double-page spreads and so forth. As Chuck notes though, I too am hoping it improves.
