Miller specializes in brilliant dialgoue. I'm not going to say that it didn't have some great moments, and I could see how it had the makings of an epic even as my eyes were bleeding from the art. I'm just saying that it was a great concept that was poorly executed. Worse, it was executed by character-assassinating some of the best-loved heroes in comics.

But if it is love you're a-wanting, I will say that it made me fangirl Ellen Yindel and Lana Lang forever. I also don't buy that Miller is a misogynist, because he was the one who first introduced a female Robin, not to mention all the strong female characters he has created (the ladies mentioned above, as well as Sarah Essen). And frankly, the scene where a beaten and dying Superman speaks to the Earth takes my breath away.

And then I counter-balance it against washed-out-whore!Selina and the utter indifference and disregard for Alfred that Bruce showed even after he died of a stroke when Bruce had him torch the manor. And the complete fucking-up of his friendship with Bruce, and the ridiculous portrayal of Superman as being spineless of all things.

But it had its moments.
