When I picked up the current run for Batman: Black and White two months ago, I first read the fourth and fifth issues because those were the only available copies I could buy at the time. I received the latter issue more warmly than the former, to be honest. Basically, B&W is a collection of flash fiction concerning Batman and these stories are drawn in pencil illustrations as the title suggests.

A bunch of mini stories from different artists and writers. It's a nice collection of various stories that give different viewpoints of Batman and his enemies. It's not bad, it's not great, but it's still good enough to check out.

That Neal Adams story was great, I'd love for him to do a series of issues like that.

I like the concept of having a variety of Batman stories collected together, especially since each was a little different. I have more issues to read through, so we'll see how the idea holds up.
