i totally get you on this.

i was on board with the New 52 Batman since day one. i'd honestly though i was in love with Snyder's storytelling until the first Annual and then issue #12.
trying to read his writing without Capullo's art to droll over was painful for me.
and it felt like the longer the series went on the more overbearing the exposition got. almost like he was punishing his readers.

i still love Capullo's art. it might not be as wicked looking as when he was doing Spawn.
even his early issues on Batman had more rawness to them, but i still enjoy it.
