Morrison Batman has some wondrous highs but I thought it wasn't all that great. And I can't stop thinking about the worst two issues I've ever read. Clown at Midnight and that one with the early 90s CGI art. I'm a huge Morrison fan and Batman is easily my least favorite thing I've read from him. But I completely understand that weird runs can have varied opinions. And this is certainly one weird run.

Clown at Midnight was legit unreadable for me, lol. It's just like... why.

And Internet 2.0 (that's the one with the CG art) was very nearly as bad.

Morrison's Batman is like an incredibly skilled orchestra with an genius composer and conductor where some of the instruments are just poorly tuned. When it all comes together, it's face-meltingly brilliant, but there's little bits that occasionally crap out and give us some dumb shit like those two issues, or prevent the series from reaching the highs it could've (like, the Batman Incorporated characters are a cool idea, but they never really get used all that well in the run itself).

Snyder Batman hits equally high highs (Zero Year is some legit "greatest Bat story ever" stuff), but despite that, I think it's fair to rate it lower overall. While Morrison did occasionally drop into truly mind-numbingly terrible issues, the overall resting quality is better. Snyder's difficulty in landing his arcs hurts him here.

It's all irrelevant anyway since The Omega Men is the best thing to come out of cape comics in the last 40 years.

(Maybe a little hyperbole there)

I just ordered the Gotham Central Omnibus on Amazon.ca -- I've been wanting it for a while, but the $100 price tag always put me off. This morning, keepa popped up saying it was $67 so I jumped on it.

The bad news is that it says "usually ships within 1-2 months" which is... weird.
