    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Feb 18, 2013

    Batman: Lil' Gotham #5 is yet another excellent entry into one of the best comics DC Comics is publishing. Dustin Nguyen and Derek Fridolfs are only focused on telling a fun, creative story and that is exactly what this comic is. Seeing characters such as Joker, Talia Al Ghul, Catwoman and Zatanna having wacky chibi-style adventures in Gotham City is a pure joy. This is a must buy comic for any DC Comics fan and great comic to buy for those looking to get kids into comics. This comic gets the Revolution-Kevin stamp of approval. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Amanda McDonald Feb 11, 2013

    Li'l Gotham comes to print in April with an issue that will collect the first two digital issues -- Halloween and Thanksgiving. Nguyen has discussed plans to increase the title's digital publications to twice monthly to incorporate more stories in addition to the holiday themes. Batman: Li'l Gotham fills a void that has been growing increasingly larger in all ages superhero comics. With a low price point, all ages appeal, and stellar artwork, consider this one for your comic-loving Valentine. Read Full Review

    This valentine from DC's Digital First lineup is certainly worth the price and will most definitely provide a longer lasting impression than candy or cards.

    Even with one story doing the heavy lifting, Nguyen and Fridolfs' "Batman: Li'l Gotham" remains a bright warm light in a relatively dark humorless DC Universe. "Batman: Li'l Gotham" takes the absolute best of the Bat-Universe and comics in general, mashing them together into heart-warming, hilarious, and beautiful stories that comic fans of all ages can enjoy.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen Aug 19, 2013

    Story-wise, it's all a bit thin and messy, and you don't get much in the way of character growth either. But you do get the Bat-family eating tacos, so it all sort of evens out in the end. Read Full Review

    This installment didn't tickle me the way previous specials have. Not that the charm of Li'l Gotham has worn off, mind you. It's just that it was a fun idea that never quite reached its full potential in my eyes. The artwork is still terrifi Read Full Review
