    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen Aug 4, 2011

    Whether Azzarello intended to or not, he's turned out a multilayered story that works and can be dissected on many levels, and is completely reader-friendly and approachable at the same time. For that it deserves the highest praise possible. Read Full Review

    The larger world of Flashpoint may be seen as a curiosity in the ranks of comic book events, but Batman: Knight of Vengeance could be " and should be " remembered on its own as both a stellar example of storytelling and a worthy chapter in the history of the Dark Knight. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Grant McLaughlin Aug 6, 2011

    This is what Flashpoint should be about. Honestly, this is what comic books should be about. Azzarello and Risso tell a great story with a clear beginning, middle, and end without talking down to the reader, while also delivering some highly memorable moments. Every aspect of this miniseries has been excellent, but the last scene is particularly haunting. If you've missed out on this book, you should rectify that oversight as soon as possible.

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Sep 6, 2011

    The side miniseries to Flashpoint have run the gamut in quality for different reasons, but Knight of Vengeance is one that really won me over. It didn't grab me hard at first, but it worked well over the course of the three issues and left me very pleased at the end of the second while thoroughly enjoying the third. The characters hit all the right notes and the use of the world setting gave us something that was suitably dark and fun but still found a very human element in the middle of it all. It covered a lot of things and was one of the few areas of the Flashpoint universe that I really wanted to see expanded on to something bigger on its own. I've read a lot of alternate takes on Batman over the years and this one definitely ranked as a personal favorite of mine that I'll want to revisit again. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Aug 3, 2011

    This issue is deceptively simple in the fact that Azzarello and Risso deliver a story that is quick but full. Batman and Joker know each other intimately, share a history, and are connected forever. Each page, every panel has more to the story than a cursory glance or speedy read will deliver. There's a lot going on in this book even though the story could easily be summarized with the following words: Batman versus Joker, "Flashpoint" ends here. Six words to summarize a story that demands to be read again, art that begs to be stared at and analyzed, and a finale that is as gripping a conclusion as I've seen in anything "Flashpoint" related.
