In the late 1980s, artist-entrepreneur Tony Wong's company Jademan released English language reprints of such Hong Kong fare as , and . After some initial popularity, the public's interest in Chinese comics waned, and Jademan ceased publication in the United States. However, Hong Kong (Chinese comics originally produced in China) experienced a resurgence of sorts when ComicsOne began releasing popular HK comics like , and to American readers. Perhaps inspired by this, DC Comics hired Tony Wong to try his hand at drawing one of the company's flagship characters: Batman. From a storytelling standpoint, Doug Moench's writing is a little bit on the thin side. Artistically speaking, however, the union between Tony Wong's Hong Kong style and the Dark Knight Detective is a proverbial match made in heaven. The Hong Kong method of mixing in traditional penciled art with full-color paintings results in a series of memorable images--the artwork is that good. If you are a fan of manhua or a fan of Batman this TPB's for you. Broomhandle Mauser's 200th scan for DCP.
