Adams and Aparo in the Haneyverse!,
This review is from: Showcase Presents: The Brave and the Bold - The Batman Team-Ups, Vol. 2 (Paperback)
When I read volume one of Batman's Brave and the Bold Team-Ups I wrote that the stories were nearly unreadable until Neal Adams came along to save the day with his incredible artistic abilities. Things are better off this time around! I'm still not sure I'm sold on Haney's writing. Many of the stories seem to try too hard for "relevancy" and end up seeming quite dated. Batman teams up with a very nice, diverse collection of heroes but the most important team-ups are probably the artists that join Haney to tell the tales. There is some more Neal Adams in this volume but by the end the star of the book is Jim Aparo! There's even a story where the first half is drawn by Adams and the second by Aparo and I almost can't distinguish between the two!
