Stephen Schleicher began his career writing for the Digital Media Online community of sites, including Digital Producer and Creative Mac covering all aspects of the digital content creation industry. He then moved on to consumer technology, and began the Coolness Roundup podcast. A writing fool, Stephen has freelanced for Sci-Fi Channel's Technology Blog, and Gizmodo. Still longing for the good ol' days, Stephen launched Major Spoilers in July 2006, because he is a glutton for punishment.

Love the art, but that Huntress costume… why did they bring it back again? The armored boots and gloves, and the many pouches, say “I’m trying to be realistic – take me seriously!” while the bare midriff, arms and legs say, “Just kidding!” That being said, Nguyen almost makes it work. I hope they keep him on a Bat title for the rest of his career.
That’s the costume redesign that Jim Lee carted in for the HUSH storyline. Recently in Detective, Batman advised Batwoman against letting her hair hang loose. I have no idea why no one felt mention should be made about how badly designed Huntress’ costume was. My thighs chafe just looking at it.
Also, I hope Man-Bat is back to being a hero. I was first introduced to the character from his back-up stories in Batman Family.
Dustin’s one of my favorite artists and usually draws the definitive Batman, as far as I’m concerned. That said, I wish he’d draw Dick Grayson and not Bruce Wayne.
What makes that pic Bruce Wayne and not Grayson?
it’s definitely grayson’s belt buckle, that’s for sure.
@Obsidian – Not to put words in Josh’s mouth, but Nguyen draws Dick Grayson Batman bulkier than Grayson has been drawn in the past (by most).
Though to be fair, Huntress isn’t looking as slender as usual either…
