The dynamic new era of Batman continues! The Dark Knight and Mr. Unknown the Batman of Japan go up against Lord Death Man. It's going to be a fight to the end that could see the failure of Batman, Inc. before it's even begun!

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen Dec 23, 2010

    Honestly, the concept of Batman Incorporated still has some ways to go before its success in the long run can be seen, but at least the idea is driving some exceptionally enjoyable stories. Issues like these prove just how boundless creativity can really get in comics. If this series can maintain that feeling, there's no doubt it can be one of the best comics in the next year.

    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt Dec 24, 2010

    When Grant Morrison manages to inject some fun into his weird and builds that out of a strong plot and great characterization, he is hard to beat and that is exactly what we get here. This issue features some great development as the Batman, Inc concept is fleshed out more in this highly entertaining issue. Paquette's art is a strong fit for the series, especially with the improvement made from last issue, though the inking is just a terrible fit. The sooner this is fixed, the sooner this book will be a contender for the top spot on the Rankings. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Chad Nevett Dec 22, 2010

    As far as an introduction to the Batman, Incorporated concept goes, this opening two-parter is very strong: a new hero that readers can get behind, a villain that's bad for the sake of being bad, plus some fun interplay between Batman and Catwoman. Morrison and Paquette get it all right. Read Full Review

    Im really interested to see where Morrison goes with this concept and whether or not it will become an issue. I dont see how it cant, and I think the revelation on the last page was supposed to tip us off as to whats to come. Read Full Review

    A Comic Book Blog - John Barringer Dec 30, 2010

    Again and again Morrison proves that he has bigger plans than can be realized in just two issues so I'm doubting this book will just be issue after issue of Bruce recruiting new Batman. Still though, I'm holding my breath. Just a little. Read Full Review

    A cheeky denouement to an impressive opening salvo from Morrison and Paquette. Bring on issue 3. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Dave Wallace Dec 26, 2010

    Ultimately, this issue is an enjoyable comic that looks slick and features some fun ideas that allow it to outshine many superhero books being published today. However, a lack of any real depth (both in terms of plot and characterisation) and a fairly predictable trajectory for the story means that it isn't quite as challenging and engaging as some of Morrison's previous work with the character.

    Comics Bulletin - Thom Young Dec 26, 2010

    With Catwoman returning to Gotham City at the end of this issue, it will be interesting to see who Bruce Wayne shares his hotel suite with when he visits Buenos Aires--you know, now that Morrison has restored Bruce as the hairy-chested sex god version of Batman from the 1970s era of Neal Adams. I wonder if Beatriz da Costa is going to fly down from Rio de Janeiro where she is the president of the Brazil branch of Wayne Enterprises. Read Full Review
