    Dark Knight News - Adam Ray May 4, 2023

    This series, as a seven issue run, has delivered some of the very best Batman storytelling I've ever read. We've had a unique artistic perspective on Gotham that remains timeless and modern, with Blade Runner like degradation. At the same the narrative has treated us to a disturbing hostage situation wrapped in a mystery. The look at how Batman thinks and rightly keeps to his code when allied with the worst evil in DC Comics is handled perfectly. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - William Martin May 2, 2023

    Deadly Duo is a story that consistently gave me what I want from a Batman comic without ever pandering to me. It has some influence from classic stories but still feels modern and it's the best drawn book on the stands. If you're a Batman fan, even one tired of the Joker, you're doing yourself a disservice if you haven't read this comic. It shouldn't be too long before the collected edition comes out. Give it a shot! Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez May 2, 2023

    Batman & The Joker: The Deadly Duo #7 ends a gorgeously-crafted mini-series on a strong note. Batman's challenges are clever, he overcomes them with equal cleverness and grit, and Silvestri's artwork truly is a work of art. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - Dispatchdcu May 2, 2023

    Even though the ending may not have been what I wanted or expected, Batman & The Joker: The Deadly Duo was still a rock-solid story cluttered with creativity and fresh new plot threads. Ultimately, I still feel that its a rock-solid Batman Movie waiting to happen that would certainly be different than what we usually get, however, I just cant shake the disappointment I felt from the final issue. Altogether, Batman & The Joker: The Deadly Duo was pretty darn good. However, as final issues go, I was expecting something more from a story that was on point since issue one. Nevertheless, I highly recommend Batman fans give this series a look especially if theyre looking for something that borderlines horror and provides a different element of eerie mystery to the character thats perfect for Halloween.

    Comic Watch - Kevin Rossi May 2, 2023

    Batman & The Joker: The Deadly Duo #7 is a satisfying conclusion to a series that all Batman fans should read. Silvestris art is worth the price of admission alone, but there are enough cool and fun parts of the story that should appeal to many. DC Black Label is the perfect place for this book. The prestige format is ideal for the art and a regular floppy wouldnt do it justice. Whether you are a longtime fan or a newcomer to the world of Gotham, this series offers a fresh and exciting take on the timeless hero that is sure to captivate and thrill audiences of all ages.

    Get Your Comic On - Neil Vagg May 2, 2023

    A blockbuster finale to what has been an incredible run. In the vein of Batman:Nolor One Dark Knight, Silvestri and Prianto have created a standalone story for the ages. Read Full Review

    This story was ultimately about what I expected, but there were a few moments that hinted it could have been more. Read Full Review

    It's dated in a sense and because of that, never really rises to reach its full potential. It's not bad, it's just. not great. Read Full Review
