In Snyder I trust (well Scott Snyder not Zack).

The 4.70€ for each issue better be worth it. Good thing it might be a 2.99 book :) Up until now, I do enjoy ASBatman, but I want a different artist. Jrjr art r.i.p. :(

Then again, story wise, this series did it for me. Batman regular series on the other hand, just didn't like it unfortunately.

To summarize it all(well, not really), ALL HAIL SNYDER

All-Star needs to drop the backup stories so they can lower the price.

Yeah it is a bit pricy, but the first two issues were amazing. I'd rather pay 5 dollars once a month for a good book then 3 dollars twice for not such a good book. Not a big fan of Romita Jr. either but I don't find his art as problematic as others. And in terms of story this stands out as one of Snyder's best ones so far to me, but then again I always felt the weakpoint of his stories were the endings so we will have to wait and see how it ties together in the end.

All in all I am really digging the book so far though and hope for many future issues to come if they keep up the level it kicked off with!

This series is meh , waiting for Sean Murphy or jock to take on art duties. That high price race needs to go as well , for sure. Don't care for the back up stories.

Not gonna lie, that cardstock cover for #1 was great. I like that. I don't like the price.

Love Snyder. Even though he doesn't always hit a home run (honestly what writer does?), he's been consistent. One of the best batman writers of all time in my opinion. Looking forward to see him write the rest of the classic villains. You can tell he really has a great respect for these characters and their rich backstory but it does not hold him back to provide a unique and fresh take on them as well.

Excited to see how the 2face are concludes and can't wait to see Mr. Freeze and catwoman, though she's not really a villain

I'm torn about this series. I thought the first 2 issues were pretty good. $4.99 is probably too high for pretty good, even getting the 30% discount my shop gives me. I will keep this on a very short leash.

Enjoying this more than the other Bat titles for sure. Agreed with @ready_4_madness art is a bit off putting
