Though it is the distribution method employed by Legends of the Dark Knight tjat will likely get all of the attention to my mind it is the set-up that should be spoken about. The one-shot structure of this series of digital shorts allows each weeks story to be a strong tonal and stylistic departure from the last. It also allows the writers to take bigger risks because they really have very little to lose, next week we start again with a fresh slate so why stress? Pu’re not going to be locked into this style or story, it’s just a sampling. So issue one can be a short, simple, street level look at a very human Batman while the second is set entirely in space and focuses on him fighting a supervillain with all of the superpowers.
