    Major Spoilers - Stephen Schleicher Apr 11, 2009

    If you can't tell from my continuous praise, I really like this arc. That's a full turn around from my stance on the entire series a few issues ago. Instead of trying to retcon history, and force a gimmick down the readers throats by proclaiming it the new new revised truth, The King Tut arc introduces a new character, an interesting twist that in retrospect lays the groundwork for the current disposition of the Riddler, and delivers a story that ever comic book reader should own. Batman Confidential #28 is a fantastic read and deserves 5 out of 5 Stars. Read Full Review

Thanks to Weir and DeFillipis, he acts like the proper Dark Knight I grew up with. His team-up with the Riddler offers comedy but more than comedy relief, and Tut proves to be an interesting, even horrific foe. Read Full Review

    This story from Batman's past feels like it could have been written thirty years ago (although it would have been told in one or two issues instead of three), and Garcia-Lopez gives it a classic look that places it in that late-Bronze Age period as well. But in this era of Tony Daniel's "Battle for the Cowl," stuff like this looks refreshingly new and vibrant. It's the veterans coming back for one more swing at the pitch, saying, "no, youngster, it's supposed to look like this," and slamming it over the fence with ease. Read Full Review
