    The Despite this issue being less substantial than the past few, it's still good. Like I said in the good section, the art is the big talking point, and Finch is making it hard to say goodbye. Granted, EVS is no artist to scoff at, but Finch is killing it right now. Read Full Review

    "Batman: The Dark Knight" #14 continues its run as the darkest of the Batman family comics, but now that's a good thing. It's a little more violent and gory, but with Hurwitz and Finch working together I feel that it's also telling stories for which it fits in a more appropriate manner. It's nice to have this take existing, and this creative team is working together quite well. Read Full Review

    The Pop Cultist - Josh Elliott Nov 28, 2012

    Next issue promises to be a Christmas special of sorts, and the second to last story in this Scarecrow arc. Scarecrow's got a city-wide nightmare before Christmas planned. If anything, it'll be worth it for all the ghoulish Santas and reindeer. Read Full Review

    X-Man's Comic Blog - Jason Todd Dec 1, 2012

    This was an odd issue. I enjoyed it but Batman came off more villainous up until the end. I get that he was in fight or flight mode, but the hook through the jaw seemed kinda outta character for Batsy. Plus, Scarecrow saved the girl and everything, which made him seem like not such a bad guy until he got pissed and ruined Christmas, Grinch style. Other than that, this was an okay issue, it went by really quick, and this story seems to be stretching out more than it needs to, but I'm not complaining. Read Full Review

    IGN - Benjamin Bailey Nov 28, 2012

    David Finch produces some of his best work here. The dark violence of this issue looks fantastic. The are a few stiff moments, like when Damian is nursing Bruce back to health, but anytime Scarecrow is on the page things are awesome. He's a bloody mess, like something out of a nightmare. Finch draws horror as well as anybody, so let's hope that's where this book keeps its focus. Read Full Review

    I don't know if the last issue of this arc has what it'll take to keep me attached to this series. There are a lot of series to read out there, and I'm happy to Drop a mostly mediocre one to fish for something better. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Andrew Asberry Nov 29, 2012

    I dunno, folks. I really want to like this arc, but the problems I listed above plus the way things escalate in the end SHOW SPOILER We went from a dark, psychological tale told from the confines of a basement over 3 issues to a city-wide assault via airship complete with flesh-eatin Read Full Review
