Preview: Frank Miller and Neal Adams' Batman: The Odyssey

Thanks to Neal for posting some beautiful pics on his website, along with this great little note:

I have never been able to bring my “A” game to Batman, to my satisfaction.  Oh, a little here and there, but all out?  Never, never.

On this project?  Yep.  This is the Batman I believe in.

No, his costume isn’t all plastic, but it is bullet proof.  His neck, well, it’s that magic that can only be done in comic books.

So what do I, and of course the incredible Frank Miller bring to Batman after all that’s gone before?

Well it better be something that’s pretty darn hot, Jocko, right?

While I haven’t been all that impressed by Miller’s All Star Batman and Robin, I really hope that he brings us something more refined and classic like Year One. Neal Adams is without a doubt one of the best Batman artists and even though we won’t be seeing this title for a while yet, it does look like it’s going to be something very special.
