Muscley guy in ripped shirt in front of looming bust of caped crusader, bats, and autogiro

Batman / Doc Savage Special: Firstwave Begins!, by Brian Azzarello and Phil Noto

This seems like a good idea – have Batman encounter the Man of Brass in an initially hostile manner only for them to end up pooling their crime fighting resources etc., but it seems a bit flat.

Am I right in thinking that Doc Savage is one of those characters people only really know in revisionist knock-offs, with no one ever actually reading original material with him in it?
