THE GOOD;

-I really, really liked the storyline with KGBeast and his father. It was excellently told in a welcomely subtle way.

-The splash on pages 16-17 was amazing. The best written and illustrated parts of the book.

THE BAD:

Batman #56

The Dark Knight's looking to drop both the hammer and sickle on the KGBeast, whose rampage across Gotham City takes a toll on Nightwing when he's injured in the fray. Blaming himself for his ward's fate, Batman gets grimmer than usual-and vows to take the Russian assassin down like the Berlin Wall. Is even Gotham City ready for that much violence? ...

yeah. Neal is definitely awesome! ....that's a shame about Tim Sale. i can only hope that there was some reasonable reason as to why he was not engaging his fans? ..but still that is very disappointing.

I hope so too, The Long Halloween is one of my favorites, and I love his art. It was still a big let-down however.
