This book is a mixed bag for me. I loved it, but there's a but here. I love it, but only if I consider it an alternate earth Batman. Which kind of makes sense considering there's a Flashpoint mini-series in here.
I love what these guys do with Batman, only it's not quite the regular Batman. It's a darker Batman. It's a rougher Batman. It's a grittier Batman. The whole tone is different, yet not. I don't know if this makes sense.
This book has a bunch of things. A Flashpoint mini-series. A six issue run on Batman. The Wednesday Comics story. A black & white story. It's all good stuff. I promise.
My biggest complaint of this book, if I had a true one, was the Wednesday Comics story. This is not the right way to reprint that. If you don't know Wednesday Comics, it was a series DC did a few years back. It's printed on actual newspaper sized paper. It does not translate well being shrunk down to comic book size, which is sad. My old man eyes has enough trouble as it is.
