Mostly brilliant, very much cut from the same cloth as Batman: The Animated Series, as one would fully expect given the participation of Messers Dini and Timm.

The tone felt a little off in places as the stories could veer into some surprisingly dark territory (the relationship between Joker and Harley Quinn is depicted as being quite physically abusive, there is also (implied) date rape, the fatal bombing of an office building and a gruesome murder before all's said and done, which is all in pretty stark juxtaposition to stories featuring "fun" characters like Batgirl or Roxy. Also, the 7 page hallucination sequence contained in the Etrigan story was over-the-top, as even the creators admit in the afterword.

Still, definitely a good read for all you Bat-fans out there!
