Flipped through this at the comic shop.
The cover is glossy like the All-Star line up. Amanda Conner's art is nice but it looked different than her previous work in PowerGirl and Terra, which was not too long ago. Then I noticed that every single panel has a detailed background.
So I'm assuming that the artists are getting a bonus or more $$ for this project and maybe even getting more time/less side assignments in order to make this thing look good.
Unfortunately, despite the extra effort, I don't see this comic book providing any real competition with other forms of entertainment or even other comic books. Even looking past the script and dialogue, it still looks like an average DC comic.
Even Jim Lee and Jeph Loeb's HUSH looked better than this, not because I prefer Jim Lee's pencils to Amanda Connor's but they atleast used two different mediums in each issue. Traditional inked pages for the present, and water color painted panels to denote Bruce's memories. It was pretty cool to see that in Batman #6whatever.
There might be some surprises ahead because we still have yet to read Rorshach, Dr Manhattan, etc.
