    On-the-ground storytelling at its finest, jazzed up by a Batman spin. You can't ask for better than that. Read Full Review

    Because most of the people who read Batman Incorporated probably don't read Scalped, Issue 7 will probably be a lot of comic book readers' first glimpse into the despair known as the Indian reservation. I'll spare you the history lesson, but I'll say this: it's not like Elton John would have you believe. Read Full Review

    Since giving our lowest Morrison-written-Batman rated issue with #5 Batman Incorporated has been solid. This issue is a great example of Morrison's ability to make an iffy idea actually work. And for all the hype Batwing is getting an ongoing of Chris Burnham on Man-of-Bats would make the top of my stack preeeety quick. Read Full Review

    Please, DC, please? A Man-of-Bats mini-series once "Batman Incorporated" is over? Based on this issue alone, I'd be down for it and then some. This is great stuff. Read Full Review

    IGN - Erik Norris Jun 29, 2011

    Batman Inc. might release on a sporadic schedule, but I feel every issue is worth the wait. It's going to be sad to see this series go on hiatus while DC relaunches their entire line. The struggle between Batman's army and Leviathan is just warming up and I want to know where it's headed right now. And if the teaser for next month's installment is any indication, the ride is about to get a whole lot crazier. Read Full Review

    If you are into the Leviathan storyline, by all means check this issue out. If you are a fan of Man of Bats, this is a great showcase issue for that character. Essentially, Batman is a guest star and doesnt get too many spotlight moments but that serves the story well. If you are easily offended by graphic violence, maybe give this a miss. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero Jun 29, 2011

    A focus on Man-of-Bats and Red Raven has been long overdue. The duo's time in the spotlight might be cut short as the threat of Leviathan is ramping up the dangers they are used to dealing with in their hometown. Morrison's decision to give us an inside look at the two elevates their characters to a new level. Batman may be challenged from time to time in Gotham City but with the way these two take their battle to the streets, they should be commended. Chris Burnham is always a joy to see on this title and his art style fits in perfectly with the characters and their environment. Hopefully the duo will survive so we can see more stories with them.

    Its hard to say for sure, but I get the impression from reading this issue that weve been introduced here to one of the key characters for the upcoming battle with Leviathan. It doesnt go down how youd expect, though, and thats a good thing. Read Full Review

    Meh. For a change, I understood practically every page of this one, but the story never really caught on for me. I mean it was okay, but I don't know, I expect better than okay from Grant Morrison. I expect epic... And by epic, I mean epically good, OR epically bad! This was just meh. Oh well. Maybe next month's offering will be better, although with a title like "Nightmares in Numberland", I'm not holding my breath... Read Full Review
