    The Batman Universe - David Finn Feb 8, 2018

    An excellent opening salvo on a new arc for Bane Conquest! Bane is going after Kobra and this title is COOKING! Im wishing this was an ongoingseries and I hope it leads to more DC work for the Chuck Dixon/Graham Nolan creative team who have been sorely missed by readers and fans. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - John Jack Feb 13, 2018

    Not a terrible issue by any means, just not overly compelling on its own, as a larger part of the story I'm sure it'll work fine, just largely forgettable in the short term. That said the overall story is great and based heavily on lore I'm veeery familiar with if you couldn't tell. Read Full Review

    The issue was pretty fun, as most of the series has been to this point, but that's all there really is to it. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Daniel Cheeseman Mar 7, 2018

    Issue #9 is jarringly positioned as it feels like these events should have taken place at the beginning of the series and it ends so abruptly you'll think there's a page missing. It doesn't take itself too seriously and lacks depth and progression so it breezes by; it's entertaining but far from essential reading even if you're enjoying this rather odd series.

    Overall, this was my least favorite issue of the entire series so far. I didn't hate it, but it just didn't live up to the previous 8 issues. It was a bit disappointing. But, hopefully next issue will ramp back up and lead us into the all out war we've all been waiting for! Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Feb 7, 2018

    Bane's army may have been recruited this issue, but the way we got there was pretty boring overall and really disappointing in the fact that not all of the characters were spelled out and now I'm left here wondering who the hell is actually on the team.  The art continues to be the strongest part of this series and while I still need to know how this ends, this issue let me down a lot.
