Just asking.
I've read some manga works by him (Compiler, Dark Angel, Silent Möbius, Möbius Klein, Martian Successor Nadesico and Gunhed), and he was always a favorite of mine alongside Yuzo Takada (3x3 Eyes), Masamune Shirow (Dominion Tank Police, Appleseed, Black Magic, Orion, Ghost in the Shell), and Kenichi Sonoda (Gunsmith Cats)... of course, the absolute best of them all at Japan is, without a doubt, Masamune Shirow, which is pretty much self-explanatory to whoever read some of his comics.
But going back to this topic, I always liked Asamiya's style, and was curious about his Batman graphic novel.
