it was amazing

After the great Snyder / Capullo run, I was skeptical of a fresh creative crew coming on board, but the new team of King and Finch really works! It's a bit of a slow start with the initial "Rebirth" comic (which happens to be co-written by Snyder), but I raced through Batman #1-6, enjoying every minute.

King packs in the action without losing the intelligence of a good Batman comic. And whereas I felt Snyder sometimes gets a little excessive with trying to be epic, King's narrative approach feels a little leaner and more streamlined. Finch's art is also exceptional -- it just has a real classic feel with action that's easy to follow.

I also loved King's superb work on The Vision, so I'm excited to find out where he takes Batman next!
