Jock's sketchy faces worked for Losers. They don't work for Dick Grayson and Babs Gordon, to say nothing of Tim Drake. Get a new artist pronto, DC, because seriously, no. Which sucks, because I am really liking Snyder's writing. He knows his readers, knows we want the Gotham detective, not this incorporated bs, and he's giving us what we want: Gotham crime-solving with Batfamily/Gordon interaction. ♥

The ratio here is equal: bad/bad. TTs has never been more of a soap opera, and someone thinks it's a good idea to stick Rose and Damian together: what. Artwise, Scott's faces are too generic whitebread good-looking. She makes Kon look like a dumb but pretty jock, and for some reason, Cassie doesn't look quite right to me either. The only one she does really well is Bart, but then Bart has *always* been a pretty pretty princess, so her art suits him. The rest.... meh. Really close to dropping this title. -__-

Oh god, here we go with another "Bruce's lost loves, take five hundred and sixty three" story, and this one's been possibly sexually abused by her father, and definitely raped by Killer Croc. Fucking awesome. Not. Doesn't help that Williams' style is a lot like Jim Lee's: all the way through the issue I kept thinking, "Hey, ho, meet the new ASBAR." Ick. -__-

Sorry, had to get that out of my system. Seriously, I could stare at her in costume all *day* and not get tired of her character design. But I have to say, I'm really not happy that they're going the "Induce Torment Via Death of Parent" route with my girl. That just sucks, and you know, My Parents Are Dead? So last fifty years. Dudes, Bruce has you guys covered, you don't need to do that to anyone else. It's too early in the series to make any lasting judgments, so I'm going to hold off for a while. But really not happy about the dead father thing. o_O


Tangentially related in a comics way: does anyone know where Amadeus Cho is hiding his incredibly awesome self these days? I lost track of him after PoP, and I *need* some Cho bad.
