    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Apr 12, 2023

    Brisson and company direct the flow of traffic quite well in the course of the issue. The group of crime fighters all come across as being distinct and dynamic in the larger flow of action. No one moment feels too rushed or too heavy-handed, which is particularly impressive given the weird buffet of different personalities laid out between the covers of a very, very busy series of action scenes.  Read Full Review

    The development on the final few pages was a little annoying as it's a plot device that's been done to (literal) death too many times. Maybe Brisson can do something fresh with it, but it really would have been stronger to leave that as an enjoyable unique aspect of a Batman title. It's the only downside to another exceptional issue from one of DC's rising must-read books. Read Full Review

    This issue is clearly setting up for the next major event that will happen for Batman Incorporated. Although our time with Professor Pyg is up after this issue, readers will be nothing short of excited to see what lies ahead for this superhero team. Read Full Review

    Bandini has a unique and engaging visual flair and it works really well for this story and these characters. I really enjoyed the visual style of the issue and imagery does a fantastic job of showcasing the power and skill of the characters. Read Full Review

    Batman Incorporated #7 was over too soon, and I want more of the same, please. I'm very excited for the next storyline, because it feels like it could be great, but it could also fall massively flat. Only time will tell. #NoSpoilers Read Full Review

    Ed Brisson's script might be a little too straightforward at points, but this is still one of the stronger issues of the series thus far. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Aaron Ray Jr. Apr 11, 2023

    I believe Ed Brisson partly addresses my hopes for this arc to refocus on the team and develop their chemistry. This storyline allows readers to get more of an understanding of Raven Red and Clownhunter's feelings. In contrast, I think Ghost-Maker's character becomes far more worrying. While the action is entertaining and fun to look at, I don't support Batman Inc. revisiting Gotham at all. This issue literally illustrates that there are far too many heroes that live in Gotham to need Batman Inc. sniffing around as well. Overall, while the story seems to be on a good track, there is a long way to go before it feels like the right direction. I sincerely hope Joker Inc. is the arc that sets the pace that brings the book up to speed! Read Full Review

    While I still wasn't that interested in Professor Pyg here, everything else was a step-up in quality from the previous issue. Ghost-Maker continues to be the book's most interesting character. The inner conflict he faces involving his worldview versus Batman and the Batman Family is entertaining to read. I'm not sure how I feel about Joker Inc. being teased at the end of the book, but I knew something was happening to Raven Red's dad as soon as he said, "I'm not going anywhere." Hopefully Joker Inc. defies my expectations proves to be a good idea.

    There's nothing amazing here that makes this a must-read, but it is pretty good. I just have trouble caring about all these characters that I have yet to be properly attached to. I hope Ghost-Maker pulls an original Red Hood and starts killing villains, but we know that he won't be able to kill anyone we'd miss, so that's a limited storyline. Joker Inc seems very dumb in concept, but so is everything Joker related, so it might fit.
