    The Dark Knight is no longer a book that Batman fans should be passing by. I am here to vouch that this is a quality series that is well-written and is more than entertaining enough to justify the $3 price tag. I'm excited to see what Hurwitz and Finch do with the groundwork they have laid in these last two issues as this has potential to be a fantastic arc. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Tommy Jul 31, 2012

    While this latest issue take a tonal shift under a new author, it revels in variety. This is the Batman comic where writer and artist can tell different and unique stories without having to worry about keeping a consistent voice from arc to arc. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero Jul 25, 2012

    Gregg Hurwitz and David Finch are making THE DARK KNIGHT another solid Batman title. I was never really impressed with Scarecrow as a villain but Hurwitz's writing and Finch's depiction is moving him up among the ranks of the Bat-villains. Batman now has his hands full. Children are getting abducted, Commissioner Gordon is missing and he has to try to keep his girlfriend happy despite his constant need to rush out on her. No one said life was easy for Batman. I was ready to give up on this title but am thrilled to find the combination of Hurwitz and Finch a winning one. Read Full Review

    "Batman: The Dark Knight" in two issues has transformed itself from the misstep of the Batman line of comics to a finely polished product. Hurwitz's scripts are strong, and Finch's art has risen to the occasion and turned out his best work on the title to date. If you'd written off "Batman: The Dark Knight" up until now, take a look at #10-11. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised. Read Full Review

    IGN - Benjamin Bailey Jul 25, 2012

    Finch has some great moments in this issue. His Scarecrow looks spectacular. He really takes the character to a whole new level of creepiness. Batman: The Dark Knight has always had a bit of a horror feel to it, and this issue really achieves that look. The darkness of this storyline is really playing to Finch's strengths. That said, let's just get this out in the open, David Finch cannot draw children. They look like creepy little people with adult faces. Hopefully, Hurwitz and Finch can find a groove together, because they are two creators that are capable of making a really good Batman book, not just an okay one. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen Jul 29, 2012

    Enough of an improvement to give you reason to hope that last issue was just a case of debut nerves, but not enough improvement to make you believe it'll all go up from here. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Andrew Asberry Jul 25, 2012

    Things were off to a good start in issue #10 so much so that I overvalued it at a 9/10 just to shake people out of apathy and give this series a chance after 9 horrible, horrible comics in a row. But this issue here falls flat. Still better than anything from issues #1-9, but definitely mediocre. The worst thing about all of this is that a lot of potential new readers are going to be coming into comic shops this week after seeing “The Dark Knight Rises” and this book is going to make for a very forgettable first impression.
