    Black Bat is one of the most solid series out there. Buccellato has done something really unique with the character and seems to be taking things in a promising direction. The writer has made crime stories and superhero stories two great tastes that taste great together. Read Full Review

    At the end of this issue the best thing you come to realize is how there are consequences to every action. No one is safe here when the people you should be able to put your trust in aren't to be trusted. Looking for scapegoats, jumping down each others throats about ethics, quick to pull a gun on one another, and so much more that leads to only loss. Something which Tony is very familiar with at this point when again no matter how much good he does its one step forward and two steps back. Where this will land him as the stakes are being raised is unknown but you can tell he's reach that breaking point as he is slowly slipping. You read this for the action, but you stay for the heavy focus on his characterization. You care to want to know what Black Bat will do next as his back is against the wall. Read Full Review

    But, I just can't get past the fact that every time I see a panel with the Black Bat in costume I think, "Dude, that's Batman." If he were something like Night Owl from Watchmen"a nod to, and a commentary on, an iconic superhero myth"that might be more interesting. But, especially if you don't know the history of the character, Dynamite just seems to be trying to cash in on the Batman look. Why bother acquiring the legal rights to an old old character, when Baccellato's story would work much better with a new character? Read Full Review
