    Even with the hiatus for Convergence,Gotham by Midnightis still one of the best books on the stands. Ray Fawkes keeps the story moving, and with the series and its characters firmly established, it's nice to see the dynamics between the team members change. New artist Juan Ferreyra brings exquisite linework along with eerie coloring to create a tingling sense of dread in readers.Gotham by Midnight#6 is a must-read comic. Read Full Review

    It was also refreshing to see this as a standalone issue. In essence minus the flower and the introduction of Kate Spencer this was a one and done story. Read Full Review

    Gotham by Midnight is one of those books I really missed during the Convergence months, so it's great to finally have it back and slink into the supernatural side of Gotham again. There's a really good world to work with here and it's populated with some intriguing characters, which look great through Juan Ferrerya's interpretation of them. This is a simple kind of issue though in terms of the actual supernatural element, but it's a strong issue in design and for the time spent with Drake and Rook getting what they can out of Corrigan with what he really is. It's done in a way where most books hem and haw over it, so I definitely liked the more straightforward approach used here. There's some real darkness waiting in the wings it feels like and I'm eager to see more of it exposed based on the simple teases placed here. Read Full Review

    While new readers may still find a learning curve in terms of figuring out the deal with the supporting cast, this book winds up being much more fun now that it's simplified its style. Read Full Review

    This is a strong issue of Gotham by Midnight.While the story is nothing groundbreaking it is a great place for new readers to jump on evengives hints of what is to come. The art in some ways is better than what Templesmith did. While his art was amazing, what Juan Ferrerya brings is a more detailed, gothiclook where thesupernatural looks scary and that is one of the most important thing in a book like this. Gotham by Midnight #6 is a solid read and a book that is showing a lot of promise. Read Full Review

    Proof, if proof were needed, that big two comics can still retain that edgy, indie feel in the right hands, of course. Definitely one to pick up, assuming youre not already doing so. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Elena Carrillo Jun 24, 2015

    Don't let what seems like a low score scare you: this is a great book. I mostly docked points for the not-terribly-creative corporation plot, though it's executed brilliantly by Ferreyra and makes for a fine, fun read. This is definitely a transitional issue full of transitional information (great for newcomers, mostly), though all of the characters are behaving a little bit "off"–presumably on account of recent events (the death of one of their partners). Nevertheless, with the introduction of Kate Spencer and the ongoing threat of the consuming evil that underlies Gotham, I can't wait to see what comes next (and am especially excited to see Ferreyra's work on the Spectre himself).

    Gotham By Midnight is back and I'm happy as hell about that.  Even though I feel like we could have gotten a little more emotion out of the characters due to the circumstances that they're dealing with, this is still a fine horror comic that keeps me wanting more.  Juan Ferreyra's art is really enjoyable, especially since now I feel like I'm not losing any of the story due to the art on the book.   Read Full Review

    The tone of Gotham by Midnight is perfect for anyone missing the days of Vertigo's prominence or mourning the recent cancellation of NBC's Constantine. Read Full Review

    "Gotham By Midnight" #6 still features the mysterious black flowers from the first story arc, and it's nice to see that particular element sticking around. Hopefully, in time, the creepy factor can build back up in this series; it was offbeat and different enough from what was already being published that it stood out in a good way. For now, this is an all right return for the series, but it's not impressing at the level that it used to. Read Full Review

    Oh no, Templesmith's gone! I absolutely adored his art style in the first five issues so was slightly disappointed to find him replaced as of this issue. Still, Ferreyra is a great artist too so I am sure the new style will grow on me. Writing remains top notch.

    Templesmith was perfect for this series, but Ferreyra makes for a great replacement. I loved his work in Batman Eternal #42, so I'm glad to see him working on a DC project full-time. As far as the story goes, this is clearly a filler issue, with the aftermath of the last arc and setting up the next one. Nothing world-changing here, but some interesting moments.
