It's an aesthetic choice, not a product of 'laziness', and I think it's fantastic.
Is it too early to hope this book gets an animated adaptation?
Though much is taken, much abides; and though
We are not now that strength which in old days
Moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are,
One equal temper of heroic hearts,
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.
--Lord Alfred Tennyson--
Every bit of this title I see just makes me more and more excited for it. Can't wait.
It was only after Bruce died that I realized what I could do for him....Honor him. Honor what he stood for. Take up the mantle of the Bat. The mantle of my son. Atone for my sins by helping the world. -Thomas Wayne E2 Batman
Never give up without a fight. - Inscription on Zuko's dagger-Avatar: the Last Airbender
The art is certainly gorgeous. Let's hope the writing keeps up with it!
