Gorgeous art! Might start picking up this series.

So excited for this. I haven't been able to enjoy Detective Comics since the New 52. There run on Flash was great, and the art can make even the worst story wonderful.

Damn, the current guys on Flash are good, but i miss this. Glad to see I'll be seeing it real soon tho!

The colouring is superb, the art... it's good, but it certainly isn't something that WOW's me.

I loves some Manapul art. Damn. He's the only one who could actually make me like the newer Batsuit with how he put's in details other artists neglect or embellish on. Look at how much better those silly knee guards look in his art compared to others.

Manapul should draw everything.

Somebody can draw.
GetsugaTensho22 - 4/1/2014, 3:46 AM
Man these guys should have stayed on Flash!
The art is perfect and the writing will be great too, but it doesn't suit a dark and angry character like Batman :/
KINGPEN266 - 4/1/2014, 5:17 AM

RetroFit - 4/1/2014, 7:47 AM

I love the Buccaletto/Manapul combo, but I prefer Flash.
Gusto - 4/1/2014, 9:29 AM

Deadpoolisawesome - 4/1/2014, 2:39 PM
A new 52 book that art doesn't suck? What is this trickery?
