    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

    Dark Knight News - Kevin M. Gallagher, Jr Mar 28, 2021

    Overall, Batman Black & White #4 is a near-perfect issue. Three of the five stories are total home runs, with the other two only being held back by the art; though if the art hits your eyes differently, this could be just your cup of tea. It's great to see so many unique voices bringing something to The Dark Knight, and that the series didn't peak too soon. Read Full Review

    Batman: Black and White #4 is a fun collection of stories that offer small insights into the caped crusader, and definitely has the edge to satisfy that Batman itch if that's what readers are looking for. It doesn't hit every ball out of the park, but nothing is horrible, and the good stuff often leans into being great stuff. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Joshua McDonald Mar 27, 2021

    Batman: Black & White #4, like the previous issue, doesn't pack the same punch as the first two issues, but it is still a fun, entertaining read. This book serves as a great opportunity for DC to showcase their talent " especially their artists " and give us, the readers, a glimpse into what certain creators' takes on Batman would be. It's always fun, and always beautifully illustrated. Where can you go wrong? Read Full Review
