The "Knightmares" continue as Batman chases a new foe in an impossible race. Over rooftops, across alleyways, up and down the streets of Gotham City, this lightning-fast crook outsmarts the Dark Knight at every turn. Is that because the man under the mask is someone more familiar than he knows? Artist Lee Weeks returns to BATMAN for an all-out action issue unlike any you've seen before.

    On Comics Ground - Timothy Quail Mar 20, 2019

    Knightmares continues, and unlike many arcs in comics, I really don't want this to stop. I could probably read a series of one-shots done by King and a rotating art team, all looking at a different aspect of Batman, forever. Read Full Review

    This is part five of the "Knightmares" storyline. I love what is going on here. I can't quite figure it out, but I love it. It's got one more chapter to it, so I'm certain we will find out what this entire story means next month. Hopefully, King ends this storyline well. I have faith that he can. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Elena Carrillo Mar 20, 2019

    King is winding down the nightmares arc "All the Way Down", it seems, but in the best way possible. This issue is a big hit after what's felt like a mix of short flies, punts and whiffles. Hands down, this has been my favorite of this set because of its simplicity, its humor, and its reliance on the visuals. In the future I would welcome King to draw more inspiration for Batman from fun material such as he did with this one, and leave the heavy literary ruminations to the realm of literature.

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Mar 20, 2019

    The art by Lee Weeks and Jorge Fornes is fantastic. With the dialogue kept to a minimum and no narration, the art has to pull double duty in telling the story and both artists deliver. The art is visually stunning and the progression of the story is told with grace and beauty through the pace and detail of the panels. Read Full Review

    The art in this issue is absolutely stunning. The dialogue is next to non-existent, but the theme is remarkably complex. Even if you don't approve of King's long (and I would say extremely successful) experiment with narrative, you are going to want to have this in your collection on the strength of the visuals.

    DC Comics News - Steven Brown Mar 26, 2019

    Honestly I found Batman #67 quite an interesting read, but not in a good way. It builds your hopes up at the start with a promising beginning, however as the issue continues you really just want the chase to be over with. Although we know it's all in Batman's mind, I thought King would give us more substance, or at least a little more weirdness in this issue like the previous ones. The encounter with Pyg, the interrogation of Catwoman, and other sequences in previous issues were great, but this issue when compared to those just falls flat. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Mar 21, 2019

    Batman #67 does absolutely nothing to progress Tom King's "Knightmares" story arc. We are left standing still as King decided to write a sequel for his Batman/Elmer Fudd Special from 2017. That would've been great if this was done in a separate one-shot comic titled Batman/Road Runner Special. But with the importance "Knightmares" is supposed to have towards King's epic Batman run this is unacceptable. The saving grace for Batman #67 is that we were treated to phenomenal artwork from Lee Week and Jorge Fornes. Read Full Review

    Generally speaking, these Knightmares stories have largely worn out their welcome.

    What a load of garbage. Maybe I'm too dumb to recognize the genius of this comic, but I don't think I want to be smart if that means reading this load of shit and being satisfied. This is right there with the Professor Pyg issue. Completely pointless. And don't tell me, "wait and see." What am I supposed to do? Get through 40 more issues before I judge this? Ignore how much it sucks? Why does this get a free pass? I'm so tired of this run. What a horrible way to start the day.

    (Before I get comments, I'm aware it's like a continuation of Batman/Elmer Fudd. It's just that, hey, maybe don't give a whole issue to referencing a Looney Tunes crossover that wasn't actually in the story you're currently trying to tell.)

    When the first actual dialogue appears on the 16th page, you know you're not reading a comic. No - you just browse an illustrated flyer, page by page, realizing there's nothing in it. Not substancial, that is. If you thought the last issue of Heroes in Crisis was devoid of any plot, just wait til you see this one. You just wait. An Ikea catalogue has more story to tell than this.

    And I think I get what King tries to pull off here. Have you seen Once Upon a Time in America, by any chance? If not - it's definitely worth a try, especially if you're into crime movies, like The Bronx Tale, Casino, Goodfellas, and of course The Godfather and Scarface. Its opening, however, is pretty painful to go through, with a phone ringing endlessly more

    I would really rather rate this issue an "?" because maybe I am just too dumb to get it.

    Basically there's no dialog (King's favorite "Elmer Fudd" tells Batman where the person Bats was chasing went, that's all the dialog).

    This is one big chase that starts at the top of a skyscraper and descends into the sewers. Bats is chasing someone who looks like the Question, only with eyes and mouth drawn on the mask.

    Bats finally catches the guy he is chasing in the sewer, under water, and it's the Joker.

    We then get some dialog boxes. They read "William Ernest Coyote. That was the name of the dead man on the roof. I asked him why. He smiled and said 'beep, beep." (Joker is holding a little horn that you s more

    "Beep"

    Filler, part 5... oh crap, I meant Knightmares, part 5. By the way, who is having these knightmares? Batman... or the reader.

    So, in this issue, Batman chases some murderer and...hmm...well... Yeah, that's about it. NOTHING. HAPPENS. IN. THIS. ISSUE. The story is, for like two months now, still in the same place and Batman totally broke his neck with that landing on the bar, just saying. But a good thing to know, that one serious stare from The Dark Knight can fix your stuttering problem. So, if the crime-fighting won't work, there are options.

    Even Lee Weeks couldn't save this issue for me. Is it me or does his Batman looks a bit chubby in here? Now it makes sense he couldn't catch up to the guy, he more

    So, the art was nice.

    And that about it. Why was this necessary again?

    This felt even more pointless than usual. AND THAT'S SAYING SOMETHING.

    Forgettable, wanna-deep comic. King please, don't do heavy-dialogue issues one week and no-dialogue issues next week.

    There is nothing genius or deep about this. Nothing in Knightmares is. King wants it to be so genius, so deep, breathtaking. It's not.

    I would be usually fine with this, but again, nothing in Knightmares feels like it's an event. Just 5 random comics that are put together that doesn't amount to anything.

    This is getting very old. Cannot wait the next issue where art is good, nothing happens and this event feels even more more

    Tom King's Batman is the ilusion of meaningful storytelling. It acts like it's something big, something important, but it's not. It's all sound and fury, with nothing behind it.

    If I could have given this a negative number, I would have. The art was the best, and really only, part of this story and I didn't care for it. Every week appears to consist of Tom King seeing how he can suck more than the week before and yet still somehow get praised for it. In that, he's succeeded because there are still people giving him 9's and 10's somehow. At this point, I'm left believing that they are just trolls because nothing about this issue could ever be construed as praiseworthy because nothing happened. It was mostly just a reference to King's Elmer Fudd story that I couldn't give two shits about. This issue is an insult and really just a way to prove that no matter how much King sucks, his sycophantic fans will gladly more

    I hope everybody, who read this issue also borrowed it from a friend like I did, because you should rather give 4$ to a homeless person than buying this issue.
    There’s no dialogue before page 16, what makes this issue boring as hell. There’s also no story at all than Batman chasing a guy over the rooftops. So if you have sleeping troubles maybe it’s the right comic for you.

    SPOILER
    I think just like Joker is mocking Batman at the end ( I assume it is Joker, correct me if Im wrong), he’s also mocking the reader for buying this issue

    Since King didn’t use many words, either will I.

    Art is amazing but this book is a nightmare... literally. And yes, I’m sure that’s what he’s going for... so deep of him. NOT!

    We haven’t moved forward one bit since the wedding issue 17 issues ago. That’s 34 weeks of stories that haven’t moved the story forward....8.5 months...

    If this type of story telling continues, one could create a child in the amount of time and have said child without the story progressing.

    Impressive.
    It’s impressive how King manages to write a story without dialogues (there are 2), the fact that there aren’t dialogues doesn’t mean that King has done a “lazy job”, all that movements of the characters and their facial expressions are in the script of the issue.This issue symbolize the fall of Bruce Wayne and damn Tom King tells it in a very good and powerful way. King has also 2 GREAT artists there, Lee Weeks and Jorge Fornes both spectacular and perfect for this type of issues.
    Can’t wait to see how “Knightmares” will end.

    Well, the artwork is stunning in some parts, all the issue is a chase with one final twist. I hope the "Knightmares"arc leaves us something.

    Hmmm, that was quick.

    I really don't know how to feel about this one. On one hand, it was a quick fun chase with a weird ending that I kind of liked, and on the other hand, the story went nowhere, like literally, nowhere.

    Since there was almost no dialogue and it was about 1-2 minutes read, I don't think it's worth the 4$.

    THE GOOD:

    -Nice art. Also, good lettering. That isn't something I would typically notice, but in a comic that's essentially JUST lettering, I kind of have to.

    THE BAD:

    -I'm tempted just to leave my review at "no," but I suppose I'll try to write an actual review.

    -DC, can we please never get an issue like this again? I would feel ripped off if this was a FCBD issue.

    -One of this issue's main problem is that it is centered entirely around an idea that thinks it's really clever, but actually isn't. Okay, yes, Batman and the Joker and kind of like Wil.E Coyote and the Road Runner. That's not some deep and phenomenal metaphor.

    -This issue just further cements my idea that these more

    **SPOILERS** I can understand that at first glance this issue doesn't seem to have a lot of substance, but Tom King as a writer is all about symbolism and metaphor. Though it may not be everyone's cup of tea, he likes to make you think. If you dig a little deeper, especially considering this is a nightmare happening in Bruce's mind, this issue actually says a lot. Batman starts on a rooftop and slowly descends into the underground of the city until he's about as far down as he can go - the sewer. King is depicting Batman falling further and further from the noble mission he set out upon. First Selina left him and he nearly beat Freeze to death, then Nightwing got shot and he left KGBeast to die in the snow, then he punched Gordon and Gordon more
