    It's been almost exactly a year to the day since I've given a comic book a 10/10 review. This book deserves every bit of it. And not just because I'm emotional about the cancellation announcement, but because, emotionally, this book just gets me where I live: Corrigan is shaping up to be a truly tragic figure with a harrowing burden, and although not all the truths have been revealed at this point, the action can only escalate toward a finale of cataclysmic and tragic proportions.

    ComicBuzz - CoTee Sep 28, 2015

    Reasons to buy this book: In the surge of DCs superhero comics, this series brings us a little of the supernatural side of DC mixed in with some horror elements. Ray Fawkes and Juan Ferrerya continue to up the ante with each issue. With only three issues left, there are many people hoping that DC will reverse its decision to cancel this book, so make sure to vote with your dollars. Overall, another killer issue (is that a pun?) from Gotham by Midnight. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Jordan Calhoun Oct 1, 2015

    Overall, Gotham by Midnight #9 is bittersweet reading as such a good issue comes on the heels of DC's cancellation announcement. Nothing lasts forever, and I will appreciate the few months we have left with one of DC's most unique series, and the first horror series I've enjoyed from the publisher. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Sep 24, 2015

    There's been some slow goings in this series ever since the first story arc concluded, but with each monster of the week issue that we got, it seemed that Ray Fawkes was building towards something or simply trying to find this title's footing and if you've waited around to see it.......... well, you're lucky as hell because goddamn does this issue blow your socks off.  I loved the hell out of this book and everyone should get on the Gotham By Midnight trolley while you still can because it's just jumped a level in it's excitement factor.

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Sep 24, 2015

    What we get with this installment is a clearer idea of just where it'll go for the arc and that it could really end up wrapping up things in a way that gives us some closure. The focus on what Corrigan has been up to the last few years is interesting as we see the IA pair really put it all together and try and get to the truth of it all, all while touching upon Drake and the others in different ways. Ferreyra really gives it a great sense of tension as the shift between mid-range scenes and close-up panels helps to expand on what Corrigan is going through, shifting him from his cool confidence to the panic that hits at the end.

    Gotham by Midnight has been taking what felt like an unnecessary turn from the supernatural half of the book, to the detective half. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Jim Remolde Sep 24, 2015

    For my rating, I just did not like the graphic violence depicted here, I think this is the worse example of violence I have seen in modern comics in a long time. Read Full Review

    Jeepers! What a cliff hanger! Didn't see that coming at all. Such a shame this book is being cancelled. It is soooo good.

    I'm heartbroken to hear this is getting cancelled. I'd go as far to say this is DC's best series right now. The story is gripping in and of itself, but the art...Dear god, Juan Ferreyra. This guy is a magician. The whole issue basically takes place two police interview rooms and Midnight Shift's base of operations, but Ferreyra manages to keep things interesting and fun to look at throughout. Both of these guys deserve to be working on big-name projects.
