> > See, I just dont get where you're coming from BJ, to me Morrison's run has felt almost like a direct continuation of Neil Adams stuff- the return to the jet setting ways, more use of Bruce Wayne as a seperate character, actually having a girl friend- and the relationship getting `serious' way to quickly I might add-, new villains coming out of the woodwarok etc etc all seam to be lifted straight from Adams play book, and, I dig Englehart but he only wrote what, 8 issues of Detective plus the Dark Detective mini? Both good stories sure, bud hardly enough of a body of Batman work to consider it untouchably sacred. and Wagner's stuff, as good as it is, has the advantage of being set outside the regular time flow of ongoing DC universe, so he had the liberty of setting and telling his Batman stories where he wanted to, without having to worry about an ongoing narative, so its hardly a fair comparison. I mean, I know you seam to steadfastly misinterpret even your supposedly favourite Batman story, so, is your distaste for Morrison merely a matter of impatience or lack of hindsite, or what? I mean, I know everyone has different taste, but, yeah, i just dont get what you dont like about it. And dont jsut say `bad writing', cause its too easy for me to interpret that as `bad comprehension skills'.

> just kidding....with a little truth sprinkled in
Well, sometimes cliches develope for a reason. But seriously, I would never pull something like that. On anybody else. Its all about history, you see?
