Rade and 5 other people liked Ekairidium's status update
Ekairidium added a status update: All five volumes of Scott Snyder's Batman run so far. I'm pretty pleased to have them. Sometimes I'd fondle them together and it gets weird for everyone who might see me doing that ;p

The book was great in every possible way. If you did not read it, than you should do so. If you have, read it again. It gets better the more times you read it. That is all.
