But I can't get past the idea of paying TWENTY DOLLARS for a FORTY-PAGE STORY. (The listed page count is padded with script, credits pages, etc.)
You can buy this issue through digital comics apps for .99 cents or 1.99 depending where you look. Use the remaining money to order a full Planetary trade (or some of Scott Snyder's Detective Comics trades).
Jakita (the sexy ninja chick ) spits out at the Caped Crusader pre-fight "You just sit there a second, Leatherboy. .. Severely beating men dressed as fetish bats are all that keeps me sane, some days." In another universe the Adam West Batman (with no muscle tone at all, just like the real one) proclaims, "Stand aside, citizen. There's a miscreant on the loose in Gotham City." One of the male members of Planetary mistake this 60's Batman for a transvestite hooker.
Stuffed with adult material (I'm still disgusted by the visual of an alien insect gangbang), crackling dialogue, and drool-worthy art of one of the sexiest characters in all of comics, Jakita Wagner, this is an acerbic and AWESOME addition to the pantheon of Batman team-ups. Grade: A+ (but still... like $15 too expensive)
The book is brief at 48 pages but an enjoyable romp for fans of Planetary. It helps if you're a Batman fan as well as Batman undergoes visual changes going from 90s Batman to 00s Batman to 60s Batman to 80s Batman, each time looking different as he is drawn in the style of a certain era by a certain artist.
It's not a bad read but all too brief and really only serves to have Planetary and Batman meet rather than go through a particularly satisfying adventure. John Cassaday's artwork though continues to be a revelation.
The deluxe edition includes the entire script for the story as written by Warren Ellis but that's it. It looks nice in a shiny sleeve and hardback but it's hardly deluxe.
