Batman is trapped on the Island-unable to speak, his memory gone, having to fight to survive against the deadliest warriors of countless worlds. Can even the World's Greatest Detective escape this trap when time itself resets every 22 minutes? And will the presence of someone else from Gotham City-a familiar feline fatale-help or hinder his efforts...especially when they don't remember each other? In another life, they were enemies, friends, partners...but here on the Island, can they do anything but battle to the death?

    Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point seems to have found its footing in its second issue and sets up a framework that could house many kinds of contained, one-issue stories even if its depiction of certain characters feels misplaced at times. It's a faithful analog to battle royale experiences that works on multiple levels, and from its first two issues, it seems as though it has more potential ready to be realized. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles May 4, 2021

    With a little Live, Die, Repeat/Edge of Tomorrow action playing out, Batman and Fortnites crossover has been pretty fun. Next issue is the one thats most intriguing with the addition of another silent fan favorite character that should give Batman his toughest Fortnite challenge yet. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield May 4, 2021

    The first issue of this strange tie-in miniseries was mostly setup, but the second issue kicks the story into high gear"and delivers a surprisingly strong narrative punch. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke May 4, 2021

    Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point continues to be an entertaining thrill ride as Batman attempts to escape a cage he can barely decipher. It may have a familiar feel to films with a similar premise, but it's decidedly a Batman story within a wacky concept of Fortnite come to comics. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford May 4, 2021

    While I feel this story continues to be hampered by its setup and concept restraints, I have to acknowledge that this issue did a much better job working its concept into a cohesive tale than I would've expected. While still not great, it's getting better. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Damian Fritschel May 6, 2021

    Overall this issue was a little better than the first issue since it showed a lot more of the lore of the Fortnite universe while also having Batman discover a little more about what is going on. Though it is better, there still isn't a ton of momentum to keep new readers engaged. So it maintains the same rating as the first issue. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Philip Clark May 6, 2021

    The story beats are really picking up as we're taken through a lot in this issue in only a few pages. Christos Gage does a wonderful job in talking us through multiple runs, without the book feeling complicated or jarring to read. I'm looking forward to reading the next issue and finding out what happens after this chapter's horrible cliff-hanger. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Corbin Nelson May 6, 2021

    Even with all my jeers and nitpicks, I can tell that this isn't a poorly executed comic. My heart goes out to the writer and the artists. My old foe, the evil (probably), Donald Mustard has entrapped them with a fundamentally broken concept. They're doing their best. But I don't think you should buy this comic unless you absolutely have to have those sweet sweet Batman skins. Read Full Review
