    Multiversity Comics - David Henderson Nov 8, 2013

    Overall, this is the strongest offering of “Batman: Black & White” to date. While the mix of hyper-stylised stories and more conservative comic offerings may come off as uneven, there is not one weak story among them. Each creative team takes a very unique look at the Dark Knight Detective that allows stories like Scott's and Hughes' which would never be found anywhere but in these pages. That's what makes this series stand head and shoulders above the competition and why this is the issue to beat. This is as close to damn perfect as comics get. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Andrew Asberry Nov 7, 2013

    I don't know what writer and artist Rian Hughes was going for with this one. The throwback cover with Tal-Dar was probably my favorite part, but everything after that" well, I was just wanting it to end but it just kept going. What starts out as a plot similar to Mark Waid's Tower of Babel mixed with some Silver Age nostalgia quickly mutates into a strange post-modern commentary on the art of sequential storytelling told through characters that look like they stepped out of those Erin Esurance commercials. "Namtab" looks like fun, but I found it overly wordy and obnoxious. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Jennifer Cheng Nov 8, 2013

    "Batman Black and White" #3 is an excellent showcase of wildly different interpretations of Batman and Gotham from classic mystery to high concept theory. It was excellent idea to revive this Batman anthology concept after its first successful go-around. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Nov 11, 2013

    There's also an opening tale by Lee Bermejo about Batman's team-up with a young Jason Todd, and a beautifully rendered (if ultimately kinda empty) tale from Damion Scott featuring Batman chasing various members of his rogues gallery around a hall of mirrors. Worth a look. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    IGN - Benjamin Bailey Nov 7, 2013

    The winners in Batman: Black and White #3 are Paul Dini, Stephanne Roux and Rina Hughes. Dini and Roux deliver a great, relatively straight forward Bat tale that will leave a smile on your face. Hughes, on the other hand, manages to produce one of the weirdest comic books I have ever read. Seriously, it's freaking bananas, which is what I love about it. I can't even describe it, but just know it has a line of dialogue that reads, "Retro really is the only way to defeat postmodernism." Read Full Review
