    Obviously the medium works perfectly for telling Batman stories. Everything from the duality of his identity to the lurking in the shadows of Gotham, nightlife in the city, and in the corners of the Bat Cave. Short stories that satisfy in the nuggets they are intended to. Art that is worthy of a gallery, and stories that are timeless. That is what everyone wants out of a comic, and that is what this issue delivers! Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Joshua McDonald Jan 27, 2021

    There is something special about Batman: Black & White. The pressures of an on-going aren't in the way. Editorial isn't issuing mandates. The stories are brief, yet impactful. The art is always top-notch. What more could you honestly ask for in a comic book? And with DC acting a little more fast and loose with taking risks, who knows what we could see develop from these stories? If you're not picking this title up monthly, then you're missing out.
