I really enjoyed how Kevin Smith handled Batman in the Green Arrow comics, but I'm not that keen on the idea of Batman teaming up so much.
Batman's not much of a team player, a complaint we've all heard/read many times from Nightwing, Robin, Batgirl, Oracle and others who've worked with him. Greg Rucka often showed Batman as the kind of guy who always felt that Gotham was his responsibility, and that he never thought it right to involve other people into his mess because he felt is was unfair to those whom he asked for help. He always took it as his burden, and no one but himself should suffer for any mistakes he's made (hey, he's a perfectionist) During No Man's Land he waited a long while before asking Nightwing and others to lend a hand, and was very curt with Huntress/Batgirl whenever she's tried to help out. It doesn't matter how deep he sinks, he always waits untill the last possible moment to reach out for someone else. Just look that the beginning of the first episode of JL.
To have a comic that teams him up every other week with a random superhero just doesn't seem right to me.
