sherkahn: (Cave Batman)

ComicBookResources has the preview of issue #8.

What happens when you merge Batman with Tron?

I must say, having spent some time with animation software and modeling, this particular look is harder than it seems to achieve.

I hope this is a worthy end for this version of Batman.

shame I won't see Man-of-Bats and other cool bats like the ones we were introduced to.

Ewwww, really? People are digging this? It ALREADY looks dated. But then, I was the one who thought that John Van Fleet's CGI art in "The Clown at Midnight" looked like something out of some mid-90's horror game for the PC, so what do I know?

I think it works here because it's not pretending to be real life. Rather, it's all a simulation on Internet 3.0, so looking like something out of Second Life actually fits.

This. It's meant to be a computer program, so any perceived crappiness and the like, or quality of the graphics, can be attributed to that, at the very least. Whereas The Clown at Midnight was just ugly - I couldn't believe it was by the same John Van Fleet who did amazing work with Ann Nocenti on Typhoid and Poison Ivy using perfectly competent and beautiful pencils.

I just read it last night. I'm sorry to say this: it looks like total shit and the story is utterly without interest.

Jesus, thank you. I thought I was nuts for thinking that this looked like shit.

No, no, it sucks. And the writing isn't that good. It's very dispirited. And it's especially a comedown after the fairly good Man of Bats story; total smack of inertia.

And frankly, I'm starting to understand BATMAN INC. as Morrison's own psychological working-out of his total embrace of the Corporation. Much as you can read many of his works as a psychological conversation with himself over the last two and a half decades--even he now encourages that reading with what he says in SUPERGODS. His characters are a bit like a child talking through his dolls.(that's not meant as a negative or positive comment; but when kids do that, what are they really doing?)

I mean, it's interesting to compare the way he writes about them now to INVISIBLES(wow, that Grant seems very far away now) or Hexus in MARVEL BOY.
