Frank Miller has written some great stuff.
Jim Lee is one of my favorite artists.
Enthusiastically I opened up All Star Batman and Robin, the Boy Wonder a graphics novel by Frank Miller, Jim Lee and Scott Williams.
Page after page Lee’s art popped.
Page after page Miller’s worked plummeted.
To new all-time lows.
I’ve read or watched Batman since I was a kid. I read back issues from before I was born. Some better than others. I have my favorite portrayals of Batman, but now I have a new least.

If you need a change in your usual reading list let me recommend Batman:Hush.
Batman:Hush is a well-written, suspenseful graphic novel written by Jeph Loeb and illustrated by Jim Lee.
The story depicts a mysterious observer who seems intent on sabotaging Batman through subtle and manipulative use of a large number of Batman’s greatest villainous foes.
Hush leads us through parts of Bruce Wayne’s personal life including untold pieces of his childhood and an exploration of a romance with between Batman/Bruce Wayne and Catwoman/Selina Kyle.
I was impressed with the rich and compelling mystery.
