CBR Review: Batman: Odyssey #1

I recently reviewed Batman: Odyssey #1 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "Frank Miller was initially rumored to be doing the scripting for this series and it’s hard to argue that Adams made the right decision in doing it all himself (unless you’re not a fan of Miller’s recent work like I am). He fills the pages to the brim with dialogue, thought balloons, and captions. I like dense comics, but most of the words here are unnecessary and slow down the story while the art does everything it can to move things forward. Despite there being too much dialogue and narration, Adams has a very casual and playful style to his writing that works very well in some scenes like the banter between Batman and Robin."
