Batman's always been defined by his iconic rogues gallery, so it's more than a little refreshing that Morrison is willing to replace the usual suspects with a new batch of villains. Only time will tell if any of them stand the test of time (although, honestly, I suspect most, if not all of them, will fade away), but they're honestly interesting and creepy.

And it's appropriate to introduce all new villains for an all-new Batman and Robin, who basically look almost the same as ever, but have intriguingly been flip-flopped. Dick Grayson's Batman is now the wisecracking acrobat, while Damien Wayne's Robin is the serious, haunted vigilante (although, given that, I'm not sure why he hasn't adopted a more serious costume).

Quitely's artwork is, as usual, great; the story is fun and action-packed. Definitely a great work; I wonder what will happen to it once Bruce Wayne inevitably returns from the dead.
