Thanks!

This shows what I have been saying all along.

Batman in a certain format sells comics, Grant Morrison does not.

If Batman Odyssey can sell so high just on Neal Adams's art than that really tells you that the reasons for the Batman title selling so high have squat to do with Grant Morrison.

I would say if any writer was working on the Batman title right now and his comics were part of a big story that was quickly released on hardcover it would sell just as high as Morrison's run if not higher. See Ed Brubaker's Captain America run as an example.

I'm not a fan of Grant Morrison's work. Never really have been.
Take his JLA work for example. Great stories/premise, but each arc ended poorly.
Or, at least, not as great as you'd expect.

Another example, I stuck with Batman And Robin as long as I good. I just gave up as I no longer cared for the quirkiness.

Put another creative team on a Batman title, and I'm there.
