    Black Bat has been a good series, but this issue starts to make it a great series. Buccellato writes his strongest issue yet. From the story to the art and the colors, The Black Bat continues to prove it's a series that warrants your attention. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Dec 4, 2013

    Overall a great transition from what occurred at the end of the previous issue. Black Bat proves to be able to gives us just as much action as emotion seeing how everyone is affected by this. Tony and Carol are both at their lowest point and even then they aren't out. What we are given is a story which has shifted to one of redemption for both. To bring down the man responsible for everything gone wrong right now and you know that big things are coming from there. This is really one book you want to read if you want to see people who go all in for the sake of justice when the stakes are not in their favor. Dark, intense, and again it continues to get better with each passing issue. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero Dec 4, 2013

    Brian Buccellato has taken off the kid gloves with this series. Last issue ended with a bomb going off. As you would expect, there were casualties. Big destructive scenes are common in comics but Buccellato shows the results of what happened rather than have everyone happily move on. The story remains gritty with a more realistic take. The Black Bat may have suffered a blow but he's back on his feet and ready to kick ass in a big way. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Joey Caswell Dec 4, 2013

    The Black Bat has been an interesting take on the concept of vigilantism but the story could use some additional exposition at this point. The cast of characters and their motives continue to become murkier, which made issue #7 more confusing than it could have been. However, the artwork is a shining example of what pulp comic books should look like. Furthermore, the protagonist remains an enjoyable character to follow and the story still has plenty of potential. It was interesting to see a number of cops questioning why the department is covering up for one of their own while casting the Bat as the villain; this was a fairly unexpected dynamic which will hopefully continue in future issues.
