Bat-Mite faces his greatest makeover challenge yet when he comes up against those dolorous denizens of the DC Universe, The Inferior Five! The Light Mite wants them to go from Inferior to Superior, but the half-witted heroes are not quite ready for prime time.

    Thisis really a comic you can take or leave, depending on how you feel likespending your three bucks. You can feel free to pick up this issue or any issueof Bat-Mite at random because theymore or less tread the same bland territory, with some nice artwork and a coupleof smirk-worthy gags. There is a story developing behind all of the hijinx, butso little space is given to these events and they seem so immediatelyinconsequential that I didn't even mention it in my review. I wouldn't callthis comic a must-read, but if you were stranded on a desert island with onlythis issue of Bat-Mite, things couldbe worse. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Bill Heuer Oct 15, 2015

    For just being counter-programming compared to darker titles like Justice League or Batman, Bat-Mite brings a lighter tone to the collection of DC titles out right now. If only for that purpose, Bat-Mite is a good read and worth it for someone looking for that. It is not a title that connects with me but I am hopeful to see the Sentry Silent come to Earth to collect Bat-Mite. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Brandon Mulholand Oct 16, 2015

    Dan Jurgens has been a part of the comic book world for a couple of decades now. He is well versed in comic lore, and has even created several characters that have stood the test of time. With a background like that, I went into this series expecting great things. This was a unique opportunity for him to share his knowledge and provide an insiders look into the world of comics. I had high hopes, but with each passing issue, I feel more and more like Jurgens has squandered a golden opportunity. The book continues to be lackluster in the humor department and questionable when it comes to worthwhile scripting. In the end, the only thing that really stands out is the art by Corin Howell, but even that isn't enough to save this book from eventual obscurity. Read Full Review
