Hmm, I didn't like the little tv's either. They were very scrunched up and small. I think I just don't like it when everything's jumbled.
And I didn't like the Mutants. They were very boring antagonists. And the girl-Robin....
Weird and disturbing sexual innuendoes between her and Bruce. Maybe I'm just a perv to notice things like that but...
Her character was flat, and completely unhelpful. WTF is a slingshot going to do :/
Like I said in an earlier post, I enjoyed the rest of the story. I didn't really have a problem with the mutants because although they weren't typical batman villains I thought they really suited the tone of the book quite nicely, and I thought they looked cool. I would agree that they weren't the strongest villains ever, but I wouldn't say that they were boring.
The first time I read DKR "girl robin" confused me as well, but I liked it, because it ind of reminded me of Watchmen, she was just a girl who dressed up in an outfit and went out to "fight crime" at night, especially at they beginning of the story. I thought it was an interesting twist (of sorts) to the book, and although it took me by surprise because it wasn't conventional, it was nice to read a Batman comic where Robin wasn't just a bumbling sidekick. (I am not saying that Robin is like that in all GN's)
I also think that Miller likes to portray Robin differently in his novels, as Robins relationship with Batman in Allstar BnR is again different to how we normally perceive their relationship to be.
