Welcome to Stack Highlights, it's like Stack Rundown but with a fraction of the effort!
And the mother of year award goes to... literally anyone but Lady Shiva
Lots of style, just need a little more easily discernible substance for my tastes.
I'm not sure exactly why most of this issue happens, but it sure is cool.

Panels of the Week, 11/29/2012
Eh, I don't feel like writing any specific intro for the post this week, I mean... how many times can I say something different? Panels. That's it.
Batman Incorporated #5: This has a lot of what I like about Chris Burnham's art. Lots of detail, the fights and violence are awesome, and the ability he has to convey emotion through the cowl's eyes. Not a whole lot of people allow the cowl to move and be manipulated in such a way, but he does, a lot, and it's pretty awesome. Also, Nathan Fairbairn's colors are pretty great in this sequence (and the entire book).
Talon #2: My stance on fill-in art is pretty well known, but if it isn't a "this guy drew half and that guy drew the other half" sort of deal, it looks consistent with the book's overall style, and is actually good, I don't mind it. Here... didn't mind at all, Ryp's work was pretty good, and as you can see above, was highly detailed. As noted in my review, Morey's colors did wonders to make this look consistent with March's issues prior.
Batman - The Dark Knight #14: Said it in my review, but David Finch is making his exit off the book a hard goodbye. His Scarecrow is creepy, gritty, and down right dirty. My exact words when flipping to this page: "God damn."
Legends of the Dark Knight #26: Speaking of Scarecrow, hey look! More Scarecrow!
