    Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point has a lot to get right and a short amount of time to do so, but it handles its content load tactfully. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Daniel Berlin Apr 20, 2021

    Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point #1 is an accessible entry into the ever-expanding world of the battle-royale game. You don't need to know what Chug Jug is or how to crank 90s to have a good time here. It's simply a fun and great looking tie-in comic that left me excited to find out what happens next.

    Comic Crusaders - M.R. Jafri Apr 22, 2021

    This issue is a bite of fun rather than a full dessert, but it is a smart way to draw in new readers to the fold. It is not quite as effective a way to draw in classic readers to the Fortnite universe. As enjoyable as it is as a Batman story, it does not take even one panel to introduce us to a Fortnite character or their perspective. Hopefully future issues allow a bit more balance between the characters, and at least a little bit of dialogue. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Apr 20, 2021

    I only understood half of this, but it was a fast-paced and chaotic comic that had some fun moments. I'm struggling to figure out how it can last six issues, but maybe it'll make a bit more sense to a Bat-fan on future issues. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Dustin Fritschel Apr 21, 2021

    Though this highly-anticipated comic about the Caped Crusader is good, it's not the best. Hopefully, we will have more questions answered and the story built up. Overall this story grabs your attention but will have a hard time keeping you interested if you are not a fan of the game. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Apr 20, 2021

    Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point #1 is for fans of Fortnite. With downloadable content included and how the story is presented, it's clear this is to get the video game players to check out comics and not comic readers to check out the game. There's a good chance that the story comes together but as presented, there's not enough for comic readers to really get sucked into the story. For Fortnite players, they might be more into it.

    I should probably say this in hushed tones, but I'm actually looking forward to the next one. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Apr 20, 2021

    The biggest obstacle with the miniseries is the quickly eroding sense of the novelty of Batman fighting Fortnite characters. Gage will need to introduce a stronger purpose for this series for it to truly make it worth reading beyond this debut chapter. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Corbin Nelson Apr 21, 2021

    Maybe this series will improve. Batman's fighting Snake Eyes next issue, so that's cool I guess " if you watched G.I. Joe in the 80s, before I and the vast majority of the people actually playing Fortnite were born. Who is this for, though? I do not see the appeal of this for either Batman or Fortnite fans. Just having Batman in things isn't enough to make Batcomic fans like or buy it. Maybe the dopamine hit of seeing your favorite Fortnite characters will be enough for some of the Fortnite crowd? This could have actually been a neat cross-promotion, but so far it's looking like a hollow advert. Read Full Review
