the solicitation reads-

BATMAN: STREETS OF GOTHAM #3
Written by Paul Dini; co-feature written by Marc Andreyko
Art by Dustin Nguyen & Derek Fridolfs; co-feature art by Georges Jeanty & Karl Story
Cover by Dustin Nguyen
Bruce Wayne is dead...long live Bruce Wayne! Gotham's favorite son has miraculously returned, promising to lead his city into a new golden age. But while Wayne devotes his limitless fortune to rebuilding Gotham City, he fights violent opposition from Batman, Robin and a host of DC Universe heroes!
And in the Manhunter co-feature, now that Manhunter has found the previous DA's killer – or, rather, the killer has found her – what is she going to do about it? Bringing the killer in for a trial may not result in the justice Kate's been dreaming of. But is she ready to kill for justice so soon after a fresh start in Gotham?

That's pretty awesome. :D
You know one thing he should do? Buy Arkham Asylum and have the security changed with guys actually able to keep them in without Batmans constant help and mental help that doesn't need mental help either or mental help that won't go crazy by being with those psychopaths

BEAUTIFUL! I especially like how the billboard kind of "pops-out" from the rest of the art.

Great piece. That rendering of Bats reminds of Mignola's Gotham by Gaslight. As always super awesome work. I don't know why I didn't have you on watch but now I do.

the mixture of traditional elements in the watercolors and the more crisp illustration elements on this is really refreshing. it feels more like a separate piece of artwork than one meant for a comic cover. very nice!

The stark white space, the colours (the warmth in Batman's cape is so great), the signature with avatar worked into the graffiti...it all adds up to pretty much the greatest cover EVER. Maybe the greatest illustration ever!
