Bruce Wainwright is not the man he believed himself to be. He never was. But when you've unleashed horror on the world... what can you do about it? Is Bruce human after all? Or has he become more than a man? It's the unmissable finale of one of the best-reviewed miniseries of the year, sure to go down as a modern Batman classic!

    The final installment of Batman: Creature of the Night completes a fine companion piece to Superman: Secret Identity, well-considered, brilliantly illustrated, and deeply humane, even if it might be wise to re-read the first three issues before returning to the finale. Read Full Review

    This is a Batman done right, and should be as important as 'The Dark Knight Returns.' Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Nov 27, 2019

    This final issue of Batman: Creature of the Night was dark, heavy and really, really good.  If you expected a more upbeat ending, you haven't been paying attention, but if you really wanted to see the struggle of being Batman, this book is for you.  The story and art were great and I can't recommend it enough.

    The central question of its series is never quite answered, with the nature of the Batman and its links to Bruce's birth remaining unsolved. I wouldn't really want it any other way, since the ambiguity is what makes it work. Now that this series is complete, I'm pretty sure it'll end its run as an all-time classic. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford Nov 27, 2019

    In the end, Batman: Creature of the Night #4 presents the story with a satisfying conclusion. Even if it takes too long to get there. Bruce Wainright's story is an interesting take on the concept of Batman and I hope DC continues to let their creatives flex their muscles with more of the classic characters in similar ways.
