    I can't recommend this book enough if you're a Batman fan. In each issue of this monthly series, you can always find at least one story that makes the whole issue worth it. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Jan 13, 2014

    Although I enjoyed the tone of Keith Giffen and Javier Pulido's “Cat and Mouse” featuring a crook's version of his encounter with Batman, it's probably the weakest of this month's stories. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Nick Rowe Jan 13, 2014

    Continuing in the footsteps of excellence, Batman Black and White number five is an outstanding read. Offered as a deviation from the norm, this series should be considered the standard for Batman comics, if not superhero storytelling as a whole. It provides creators with the freedom to explored new or possibly forgotten, territory, keeping Batman fresh, innovative, and stylish. As we get closer to the end of this volume, the foreboding sense of monotony within Batman storytelling looms ever closer. Black and White continually shows what Batman could be, if creativity and imagination were the primary driving factors behind his adventures. Read Full Review

    It's not as groundbreaking as you'd expect an issue of Batman: Black and White to be, but issue #5 is still a solid read with some really nice short stories and top-notch artwork. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - David Staniusz Jan 14, 2014

    Batman Black and White # 5 had some great stories as well as some average ones. The books' art is definitely its strong suit, however fans of the character will enjoy the charm in a bunch of tales that bring out the characteristics which make Batman the man he is. Read Full Review

    Blair Butler's story is worth buying the issue on its own.
