    I feel like this story has been slept on from the public eye. It is such a fantastic story that if you are looking for something that is exciting and new yet familiar, this is the series I would 100% recommend to anyone, especially if you are a Batman fan. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Feb 14, 2023

    Five issues was a fairly tight arc to tell this opening story and the teased next story should be just as interesting. This seems like a book that gets it right with a dialed in creative team doing all they can to make it stand out in a crowded field of Bat Family titles. So far, the results have been very encouraging. Read Full Review

    This has been an entertaining, pulpy comic with a ton of Hong Kong-inspired action scenes and countless rogue Batmen across the globe, but it also has some very interesting and thorny issues. Read Full Review

    At its core, Batman Incorporated certainly is not a bad book, with this finale of its first arc culminating in an emotional, well-executed, and action-packed context. Read Full Review

    Batman Incorporated #5 gave us a little bit messy and also too convenient end to this series' first chapter. I wonder if we'll return to these events later in the run. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Aaron Ray Jr. Feb 14, 2023

    Phantom-One is a brat with a dumb name and an even sillier gang of friends. For a book called Batman Incorporated, readers rarely get a chance to get to know them better. As a Ghost-Maker comic, it does succeed in giving Khoa some much needed self-awareness. Even though my overall hopes for the book haven't come through, there is a lot to salvage. The art is fine in this particular issue, and the team came out more bonded in the end. I honestly didn't have much of a good time through a majority of the books, but the finale feels like growth. Then again, it's hard to keep optimistic knowing that Brisson is following this up with a bunch of clowns. Read Full Review
