Pull List 16: It was so close to 1000.
Writer: Tony Daniel
Artist: Tony Daniel
Tony Daniel's Batman was actually pretty good when I read it. His art's beautiful and his work writing the Dick Grayson Batman was, while not stellar, more than good enough for me to give him a shot as he writes Bruce Wayne under the cowl this time.
The opening story has Bruce Wayne searching for a dangerous serial killer called the Gotham Ripper. That means (we hope) this is a story that has nothing to do with Batman's overused (though great) rogues gallery. Neat.
