"I'll you smartasses what- let's wait a year or two before we decide what the value of this work is. We can all reconvene and see what impact the book has had, what the sales trends were, what kind of reaction it has had among other creators and most importantly, see who has followed its lead. That will be the true test of this work. I'm done arguing about it. It's really not that important. If Miller's "personal vision" is to write like Mickey Spillane on a crack binge and people like that, more power to you all."
By your standard, a comic must revolutionize the industry before it can be called "good."
Since the last book of that type appeared in the mid-80s (be it DK1, Watchmen, or Swamp Thing), you must REALLY be pissed off about EVERY comic over the past 15 years.
Your expectations for DK2 were ridiculously high.
It's a good book. Nothing more, nothing less.
