With the departure of Frank Quitely, this book, written by Grant Morrison, has become one with rotating artists, or perhaps that was the plan all along. I’ve been looking forward to Cameron Stewart’s issues; I loved working with him and Grant on SEAGUY. Here’s the first one, and it doesn’t disappoint in the least.
Stewart’s art is clear, friendly, well-drawn and well paced, with just a smidgen of cartoon in the figures that I think adds to the appeal. The story, which takes Batman to London, is also appealing, and Grant knows how to play with and against the stereotypes of England, and has created fun British heroes and villains that are a delight to see and read about. The appearance of other elements and characters from the Batman mythos later only make it better. Good stuff, more please. Recommended.
