Quite disappointing premiere...

Batman Incorporated #1

Since this is one of the titles with Bruce back it deserves at least one thread here by now. So, here are just some page by page jots that may help make the ish worthy of a whole thread...

okay coverbut barcode shouldve been horizontal and in the right hand cape corner

quite good first 2 pages

do we know a mr unkown and a mr death man?

ugh, he is already a wannabe batman with sidekick AND a 'batcave' too? *rechecks cover*, nope, its not knight & squire ish -just sayin'-

opening ambush sequence is pretty good

are there many known dcu japanese heroes to worry about with that mass hit put out?

reserving judgement on bruce coming back and going international but doing it right away before settling up more score in gotham does not feel right or as interesting

to behonest, already forget what bruce saw in his mini that would warrant this theft by him

quite good double title page

*sigh* yep, he is going thru with perpetrating a robbery and yep, he is unilaterally deciding the security of all the nations by himself

readers really DESERVE to know exactly what he is taking as the premiere issue to set the tone for the series - or maybe dc hopes the number of curious people will be higher to grab #2

so we must assume when the players are speaking japanese and when english

good thing selina identified those (army geared?) thieves in sivana's vault as americans cuz how would reader know

are catwomans lenses special and WHY isnt she using them regardless

the robot fight sequence could have been done better visually

ugh, the safeguards against 'cat'burglars was robotic mice... in the words catwoman' in that very panel': "HOW VERY ORIGINAL"

does this super secret safe have ..uhm.. 2 doors in?

aquazon?? is she from tha big ten mini or that abstract final crisis mini spinoff with that superteam?

chugging a bottle of booze... thats the classy selina & she knows bruce likes ;\)

quite good almost-splashpage image[!] though it oddly looks like selina is a better jumper than bruce is a swinger AND is more or less repetitive of the title page

the 3thugs fight was a bit better - but hard to muster believability in bruce's "THIS IS FOR MR UNKNOWN" attempt at quotable - unclear if batman is talking japanese really which kinda makes selina's question about reading it odd but NOT as very odd as bruce's scary choice of words "DON'T MOVE A MOLECULE"

catwomn felt a little too cliche corny this ish; on the plus side she was drawn quite good

ugh, and this is just wrong!!! implying scary threats is okay but "CARVE YOUR NOSE" seems debatabley wrong for bruce!!!

jiro and misaki... meh

is that the end? it could have really used "TO BE CONTINUED" blurb to buffer the suddeness of it

hmmm... looks like catwoman, not batman gets the bulk of the preview for next ish with jumping thru the waterportal and fighting anime friendly tentacles... hmmm... wonder if anyone will recall her warning against a water adventure and scoffing at manga tentacle fight at the LCS HQ...

here some links should you at the BMB want to add more (eloquent) comments...
