This series was far inferior to Miller’s first 4-issue story about Batman. In fact, it’s not even a Batman story, really. It’s a Justice League story.

Maybe the reason I didn’t like it so much is that so many writers did pretty much the same thing, only better–like Grant Morrison in JLA Earth 2 and all the folks who wrote great Squadron Supreme stories at Marvel.

But there’s still much to recommend here. This panel sets the tone: Strange art, new depictions of classic heroes, deconstruction both through image and text.
