I think House of UIster is responding to the Batman: Dark Knight comment. That's just an awful book.
Ahh, I see. I haven't followed Batman since Knightfall, so my only exposure since then has been the cartoons and the Arkham games. Arkham City put me in a Batman mood, and I've always loved Finch's work, so that made my decision there and I've been enjoying it. That there's an Arkham feel to it doesn't hurt at all for me.
