Awesome script and great art by Miyagawa. Wilson writes great supporting characters. Her scene of Nakia is well done. This book is so consistently good that i can't remember reading a bad story since it started.

Wilson again nails emotion, dialogue, and character development, with an original plot. The art services the script well, with occasional eye-catching details in the background.

The art is well-staged if not a bit sketched-looking. The book is fantastic, and this basically reads like still images from the source material.

The momentum from the fist issue continues, with this issue being surprisingly dark for a comic about two pre-teens. I have always been a fan of the way Tomasi writes younger characters and this comic further cements that idea.

The art is perfect for the tone, and Damian is hilarious. This has to be atop any casual or serious reader's list.

Very solid issue, great to see King writing the other villains in this issue, all with suiting personalities. Particularly enjoyed the Two-Face and Riddler moments. Bane remains a terrifying presence with Batman trying to buy as much time as he can keeping him out of the way. I've never been as wowed before by Finch's art but here he is killing it even with deadline pressures.

Once I settled into the artistic style Snyder was going for in this arc I really started to enjoy it. This next chapter is no exception as we see the pieces of who is truly behind this slowly come together and we see Batman fight physically and psychologically. The writing is especially strong in making not only Batman try to figure out what is read but the reader as well! Snyder has dont an amazi more

What an amazing trip! It was amazing how the elements of past stories where brought back and related in a natural and organic way. There might be some questions related on how the Mad Hatter knew this or that but, anyway, the story is very well developed, so good, that it really gets inside your head. Snyder is such a good writer, well paced and profoundly poetic, and you can see how good he kn more

Maximal use of Mad Hatter, and advancing Duke's narrative is enticing. Not as emotionally gripping as the Ivy story. Snyder seems so free to create, and it shows every month.

Art and cameos make it satisfying. Feels very "middle of the story" and doesn't quite stand out like the others in the arc.
