    AIPT - David Brooke Oct 11, 2022

    If you're looking for a globetrotting series of superheroes, Batman, Incorporated is all that and more. Brisson and Timms are firing on all cylinders with a robust cast of characters that economically give us a taste from everyone while progressing a plot that intriguingly ties into Ghost-Maker's past. The fact that his same past also includes Batman is the cherry on top of a series that is sure to be a huge hit for fans of big team books. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Sean Winningham Oct 11, 2022

    If you want a Batman team-up story that doesn't include the Bat family and gives you that Mission: Impossible spy thriller vibe, then this is the comic for you. It's new and different and it still fits under the world of the popular Batman theme, and it's been a hell of a ride so far! Read Full Review

    Timms delivers some impressive and visually exciting art in the issue. The visuals are thrilling and I love the way the art builds on the tension of the plot. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Oct 11, 2022

    This was an engaging debut that quickly established the premise of the opening arc, the character interplay and that this team is truly operating without the Batman safety net. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Oct 11, 2022

    It's a strong debut, better than the annual that led up to this, and it's great to see Ghost-Maker not fade away once Tynion left the book. Read Full Review

    Ghost-Maker I mean, Batman Incorporated #1 Was a great start, I hope that we get to see all of these characters develop, although I'm sure we're in for a clash of egos. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Oct 15, 2022

    This new series is off to a good start, with a solid international threat and a good use of all the characters; though there might be too many characters to keep solid track of them all. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Aaron Ray Jr. Oct 11, 2022

    The point of Batman Incorporated is to tell the kind of international stories that historically exclude Batman. The idea should never be about making them look less than Batman, but to build them up in their own right. Ghost-Maker has a long way to go as a leader, but that's enough space on the runway for your story to go to some good places. However, for those of us who hold the journey of Bruce Wayne in high regard, there better be a justified culprit behind it all. Even though the artwork and characters haven't won me over completely, the mystery is genuinely intriguing and has potential. So far, so good. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Gregory Ellner Oct 13, 2022

    Despite the interesting artwork, this group seems to lack both Batman and incorporation, with little to easily draw newcomers in. Read Full Review

  • 6.0 - Jenna Anderson Oct 12, 2022

    For better or for worse, Batman Incorporated #1 is nowhere near as accessible of a comic book as it could be but there are just enough elements to save it from being an absolute wash. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Oct 13, 2022

    Nobody has much character, interactions are awkward and the art is awkward and elongated, making for a difficult, confounding read. Read Full Review
