    Tynion IV and Jimenez kick this book back into gear with one of its most exciting and important issues in months. Almost every element of this book is top notch, and it's a great advertisement for why readers should return this fall for Fear State. Read Full Review

    I'm not sure how I feel about where the Batman books are heading, but I'm loving the journey towards that destination. Batman #110 is full of the kind of action-packed excitement that I love to read in a comic. I can hardly wait to see what Tynion has in store for us during the Fear State event. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Jul 7, 2021

    Batman #110 ups the action and really gets the ball rolling even more. It's a hell of an issue where the cards are laid out on the table and we can see the “fall of Gotham”. We get a villain that feels like Batman's equal but left with questions as to how stupid people are, because it's clear as to who's behind everything. Still, it's a fantastic chapter as this latest arc of Batman is one of the best in a while. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Jul 7, 2021

    James Tynion and Jorge Jimenez are an incredible creative team and Batman #110 is yet another example as to why that is. The fight between Batman and Peacekeeper-01 is as brutal as you expect it to be. How this fight builds on the current state of Gotham City and leads to the Magistrate Program official launch creates even greater interest in what will happen next in all the Batman Family titles.

    Batman-News - Joshua McDonald Jul 7, 2021

    Tynion continues to steal other people's ideas and present them as his own. It's getting so bad at this point, that I'm shocked someone isn't yelling "plagiarism!" Batman has become a joke of a comic, and as a result, DC is starting to look like a joke as well. Maybe, at some point, someone will take their job seriously at DC and actually try to make a good Batman comic rather than just rely on gimmicks and cash grabs. One can hope anyway. Read Full Review

    ComicBook.com - Nicole Drum Jul 7, 2021

    Bringing Batman to account by making him a somewhat realistic character would be a good idea, but a complete take down of the vigilante with issue after issue after issue of kicking him while down is just too much and it's that lack of nuance and forethought that shows itself sharply here.

    I know I feel like I'm in the minority here, but I actually like Tynion's Batman run. Is it better than Scott Snyder or Morrison's Batman? Of course not. But it's fun and entertaining and Batman feels cool to me. He's not written like a wimp in Tom King, and i like how Tynion makes Batman usually win by using his gadgets.

    Now, to my review. Like I said, I like the progression of the plot and how it ties into Future State. I like the art style and the fight scenes are engaging. I like how Batman uses his gadgets to outsmart Peacemaker and he does beat him. The dialogue doesnt bother me personally and the plot and pacing for the story is really engaging.

    For me, the Magistrate makes sense. The public in DC Comics now kno more

    Let's see, who did Tynion rip-off this issue? Well his new armored vigilante is John Walker replacing Captain America all over again, and that plot was done more than 30 years ago. The armor is a nice touch, but it is also just Azrael again.

    The story starts in media res (that's fancy talk for in the middle of the story). Bats is trying to fight off Scarecrow fear toxin. Now correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't Batman have an antidote to that? Why not use it? Also, how about showing us how things happen instead of telling us. That's story telling 101.

    Bats gets chased all over Gotham by Armored Vigilante and Bruce activates a bomb that gives off a morse code signal that Ghost Eater understands. Now the problems with t more

    It's official, this series got so bad it's ready to be toilet paper. The insistence to the bad future state, to make Batman see as if he were the center of the problem (although there is part of reason when the Peacekeeper tells him about his associations with not completely reformed criminals)

    I don't know if Tynion or the cartoonist has the obsession of always putting Barbara swallowing, first tacos and with her legs spread, now a hamburger at this rate will end up being a sow, because whoever eats in a situation of generalized chaos.

    And the backup story is even worse.

    I didn't like this number at all. It's like a bad novel with a bad ending that has already been told to you. In the end the sal more

    all the narrative and history of this number sucks, the people in charge of the art cannot work miracles with this garbage no matter how hard they try.

    Batman reduced to a useless, has thrown out the window years of fighting crime, that is illogical, surely all these stupid things are to lay the carpet for the next Batman, a character so poorly designed that they need to minimize a great iconic character like It's Batman THE ORIGINAL BRUCE WAYNE.

    Why can't something interesting happen. Tynion, why are you ruining the pacing of this book but then hiring amazing artist to hide that. Who do you think you are, Tom King?

    Another issue another gem. I really can't say enough about how much I have loved the Batman book since tynion took over. I love the story I love the pacing i loved the multiple layers and perspectives of the story. The artwork continues to be tremendous as well. I also really enjoy the ghostmaker stories they are doing a fantastic job of really letting us get to know the character. Of the current 22 books on my pull list batman is my favorite currently. I simply can't wait for the next one

    These negative reviews are so off based. This was a great batman story.

    "Ripped off ideas" GTFOH. Thus is an old school rough and tumble between Batman and an armored bad guy. People complain about everything these days I swear.

    I agree with most of the critics on this one. This is a good, entertaining, but not great, story with top notch artwork. It sets up an interesting future where Batman will have to contend with the Peacekeepers whenever he ventures into Gotham as long as Nakano is in power.

    (I ignored the very tedious Ghost-Maker backup in my rating.)

    BronzeAgeHuman Jul 14, 2021

    I've really been digging this run and this issue is no exception. We get some solid action out of it, the culmination of one of the plotlines that's been layered through the last few issues, and the same great artwork we've come to expect from Ortiz (aside from that one feature panel of Molly lookin' a mess). I was worried that I wouldn't like Peacekeeper-01, as he is a bit tropey, but he works well as a piece of the puzzle here.

    This run probably isn't a revolutionary story that they'll teach in schools in 40 years, but it's at least as entertaining as a summer blockbuster, and the writer occasionally finds space to go a tiny bit deeper in ways that don't feel forced or hokey.

    I thought this was a pretty decent issue. I thought there were some good parts and also some really cheesy parts. Overall, it was enjoyable. Even the Ghost Maker story was ok.

    A good, enjoyable read. It reminds me of those 'the last before X event starts', but better. Those hose issues ussualy are all about getting to the end, getting everything into place, that the rest often rings a bit hollow. This one doesnt. It has enough going on, has enough interesting character work that it feels like a good and thick read.

    Also: the art is the mvp. It's everything you could ask for.
    The Ghostmaker story is good as well (well written with nice art) but, again, just not my thing.

    All right. One down, over a dozen of backlogged comics to go!

    This issue feels like padding in a lot of ways. Also, aimless. I can't believe we're only five issues in. It's felt like an eternity, and yet so little has happened. At least it's well rendered? Once again, I hate the Ghost-Maker back up. Go away with your terrible fonts and even more terrible storytelling.

    Once more Tynion impresses himself most with another flimsy addition to his growing cast of pathetic characters. Now we have Batman against a guy who thinks he's Robocop or something. It's hard to like where Batman is headed. Once more, I passed on the Ghost Maker backup story because I've had more than enough of this pathetic excuse for dick envy in the main ones lately.
    Nakano is now officially Gotham's worst mayor since Hill. He's so consumed by his own resentment that he's willing to hand the city to an obvious madman. When it's too late to do anything he'll have no one to blame but himself, providing he'll even still be alive.
    This wasn't the worst issue of this monotonously long story, but it's definitely not the best either more

    This run has been so middling enough that I can't imagine how the terminally online could actually get worked up over this. Or why that "professional" reviewer has to go attack everyone who disagrees with him.

    25 pages of a story no one cares about in order to retro configure the Future State garbage story line into the books and 10 pages of a story about a new character that no one wants to read about. Did I miss anything in this? When is DC going to stop force feeding its fans crap that they think is good but has already failed? 0/10
