    One of the highlights is when we see Joking using Xabaras's lab to make zombie jokers. Read Full Review

    Batman/Dylan Dog #1 is a hell of a start. The comic delivers two characters in Dylan Dog and Batman/Bruce Wayne that are so perfect together in a story that makes sense and doesn't feel forced. It has a look and flair that is a throwback to pulp adventures and Batman team-ups of the 90s. It's a fun comic that even readers unfamiliar with Dylan Dog can enjoy. A solid debut that has us already wanting more of this new dynamic duo. Read Full Review

    The only truly new element in the issue is the combination of these two characters' narratives, but the execution is so good that readers will be reminded why both names are considered icons. Read Full Review

    Super Hero Hype - Matt Morrison Mar 12, 2024

    Batman/Dylan Dog #1 is a perfect introduction to one of Italy's most popular comics. While this sort of crossover is an acquired taste, Batman and Dylan Dog are highly complementary characters. I believe this book will satisfy all but the most partisan of purists. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Carl Bryan Mar 13, 2024

    The premise, the art, and the colors in Batman/Dylan Dog #1 are fantastic, but the adventure itself is very formulaic. Future issues need to provide a bit more meat on the bone in terms of why the Joker is even in this particular fight, otherwise, all we have is a combination of Batman and the latest novelty that may be more akin to Austin Powers than John Constantine!
