Scott McDaniel page from Detective Comics #867

Andy Owens Inks, Colors by David Baron and Allen Passalaqua, story by David Hine

As dynamic as Scott McDaniel's art is, the down side is a limit on visual information, for example the members of the background crowds and cops are perfectly anonymous, most of them even without faces. McDaniel (and the Andy Owens inks) moves the David Hine story along so fast that (I guess) we're not supposed to notice the smaller details. But it is the smaller details that could be working to create a sense of physical identity to Bruce Wayne's Gotham City playground.

Like an impressionist painter, McDaniel implies a lot of things without actually showing them.
