OT: Batman Manga review?

Hello Everyone,

I was reading CNN.COM and came across this review of batman-Child of Dreams by Kia Asamiya:

http://www.cnn.com/2003/SHOWBIZ/books/0 ... index.html

Then there's a link to the first 10 pages:


Seems pretty cool. Has anyone bought this and is it worth the price?

Based entirely on the on-line teaser, it looks like good stuff. I'm pretty picky about Batman, but it seems Asamiya has a good grip on the layers of identity crises which compose the World's Greatest (undiagnosed psychotic) Detective :wink:

On the other hand, 350+ pages can't be cheap....
