Scott Snyder’s writing can really drag it down for me, however. I find the book to be heavily overwritten. If you’re going to have this much prose and dialogue, it has to be capriveting. I love the lengthy prose of Alan Moore’s comics, it’s poetic. This feels more like exposition.
Capriveting? Captivating/riveting? lmao I like it

Have you been following along with the tie-in issues and one-shots? It's been nice because even if I don't particularly care for an artist or a writer in one issue as part of the larger whole it all evens out.

I want to get the hardcover edition of this when it comes out, it'll probably be split into the actual Dark Days/Dark Nights issues, the Nightmare Batmen one-shots, the Gotham Resistance story, and the Bats Out of Hell story. But if it all got collected in one book I'd definitely buy it.
