    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Nov 22, 2022

    It's an odd story, but its Luthor is perfectly manipulative, fuzzy Lantern D'ayl is a breakout character, and this is the best material we've gotten out of Emiko Queen in years. I definitely won't mind seeing Whitta do more DC work down the line, but first he's got to stick the landing here. Read Full Review

    Great artwork and interesting conflict get Batman: Fortress back on track from a bit of a lull in earlier issues. You'll be rewarded for sticking with the title until the end. Excited to see how the series wraps up. Read Full Review

    This was a solid penultimate issue with a cliffhanger that sets the stage for a memorable finale. Read Full Review

    The pacing in this issue and the dialogue (including the "final words between Batman and Luthor) are very strong as the intensity builds and revelations are discovered. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - William Martin Nov 23, 2022

    This isn't the worst comic I've ever read but it's possibly the most "whatever. What little interest I did have at any point has evaporated and I'm left looking forward to the end so I can move on and never think about it again. If I wasn't assigned this book, I would have dropped it after issue one or two and saved myself the frustration. Since that isn't an option, here's my consensus: please read Detective Comics instead.

    Comics creation is really hard, and I truly respect that. This story continues. I am now looking forward to it being over, however. I was really excited with the idea in the beginnning, and it has really meandered. I bet this sounded great in the typed word version. The final version? So there is progress in the story, which is great. I hate to agree with William Martin on this, but his remark "Everything has a sort of 'first draft' feel to it" - is unfortunately spot on point. And let's be clear, it is really hard to come up with a complex first draft for this many moving parts and characters. Where I really disagree with William Martin, is that I believe Gary Whitta has the talent out there. I am hoping this series is just not playing to more

    Most current modern comics leave me feeling mostly indifferent. They're so unenjoyable these days, that I don't even bother talking about them online. I'd rather spend any spare time I have enjoying back-issues.

    This series seemed like it might be intriguing at first, but it quickly soured. It's been a chore reading it the first time.

    We finally get to TWO big reveals in this issue, and all i can say is -

    •W• •T• •F• ???

    (((SPOILERS for this absolute garbage)))

    So Superman's family from Krypton were corrupt and power-hungry war-mongers who invaded countless worlds. They made so many enemies who finally retaliated by weaponizing the Kryptonian sun to destroy the planet Krypt more
