My main takeaways are that Jae Lee and Ben Oliver totally kick the art out of the park during the first issues, and I wish I could read more of the older (Earth-2?) world. I know they eventually got Darkseid' to pieces (and then there was a very long and silly migration and whatnot I only sort of followed), but I think TPTB made that happen because Batman and Superman had sort of won.

But mostly, the art was gorgeous; moody, strange, dramatic. As an example, here's Bruce Wayne (in disguise) sitting in a park bench:



It's all like that. The perfect style for that pair of over-dramatic prima donnas (in all fairness, everybody and everything looks over-dramatic drawn that style).

I don't need Gotham park benches to look like they're built to murder people

I wouldn't be surprised if they were, sort of.


Each panel is gorgeous to look at, just very...posed, without being composed particularly well?

Yeah, you're right. I can see that.

His characters are doing tons of acting, but they're doing it in front of whispy clouds the colorist went and put in later.

True. There's something a bit onirical about the whole setup.
