Batman goes after the biggest criminals in Gotham City: Bruce Wayne’s billionaire peers. But when these blue-blooded businessmen turn to the Joker for help, they find themselves in over their heads. It’s up to Bruce Wayne to step in and save them...even though he may be just as guilty as the rest.

    Good writing, strong art, and a fresh perspective on well know characters and tropes. That'll do. Read Full Review

    Though the Batman stories have in their own way been the weaker part for me of this wave of digital releases from DC, they're still fun in what they do and how they present the character and his rogues. I rather liked the simplicity of the Joker in this and getting more time mas Bruce in this than Batman made for a good read. Mark Russell gets into the mode of Batman well enough and a few more installments will definitely show more out of it I think. The art team is definitely strong here as I really like the look of the characters and the flow of the action itself. It's a welcome change of pace from the first three issues. Read Full Review

    And to be honest, that might be how I’d describe Batman: Gotham Nights #4 as a whole - while Russell has his own distinct voice as a writer, he actually bridges the gap to what a traditional superhero comic looks like that it will likely feel like a win-win for two reading demographics that might otherwise find themselves at odds. While one might wish he could dig a little bit deeper at the inequities of wealth and power that even Batman might unwittingly represent, this done-in-one story feels more thoughtful than you might expect.

    Weird Science - Jim Werner May 13, 2020

    Batman: Gotham Nights #4 is an issue with a lack of focus that sabotages what Mark Russell seems to want to do.  Throwing the Joker in the middle of a Batman issue is going to trump everything else going on, especially when what else is going on is pretty cliched and generic.  The art is good, and it is only 99 cents, so there is some value here, it's just fleeting and forgettable.
