The architecture theme is fascinating to read, and the designs looming in the background are impressive, but Batman-- and worse, Bruce Wayne-- is not convincing. Bruce Wayne's interaction with the one female character is so cringe-worthy and awkward, I was embarrassed to read it. The woman initially presented herself as intelligent and well-spoken but she quickly retreated to an inner-voice in which she regarded Wayne as 'cute' and used words like 'duh'. Lastly, Batman is uncharacteristically forgiving towards a fellow costumed vigilante who had few qualms about murder and attempted it several times over the course of the story. I understand that perhaps this Batman was likened more to the lighter, classic Batman but his darker, grim side poked through occasionally, leaving me confused.
