Holy Steaming Pile of Script, Batman!
You'd think pairing Frank Miller and Jim Lee on Batman and Robin would result in an amazing comic book. After reading the first two issues, my assessment is... the art isn't terrible.
I'm just plain stunned. Miller's script is horrible. I can't believe this slop is from the same man who wrote Dark Knight Returns! I mean, they use that as texts in university literature courses! I tricked myself by thinking mantras such as, "I like this!" and "This is good!" and actually managed to maintain my self-delusion... until it was shattered by the Batmobile taking off like a rocket and flying. I kid you not: the effin' Batmobile flew!
This must be the Frank Miller who wrote RoboCop 3.

Holy Black and White Strip, Batman!
Well, Dee asked me to do a Batman strip. He got a Batman strip.
This is the result of an entire evening's worth of work after coming home from... well, work :p.
Everyone seems to have loved this one, so I'll take this moment to feel proud of myself.
