    The momentum ofBatman Incorporated continues from issue to issue, and the latest doesn't show any signs of slowing down. This is an issue that will leave fans truly wondering what will happen next as there are so many directions it can go with no real indication as to where. Read Full Review

    This is a tense, entertaining issue, but there are so many characters that it often feels like we're just spending a few pages with each of them. Read Full Review

    Overall, this installment feels like a culmination of something bigger and wilder in Batman Incorporated, but I'm just intrigued enough to follow it through. Read Full Review

    As this arc continues, it will be interesting to see how close each member of Batman Inc. skips the line. While I can't see them crossing the line like Wingman almost accomplished, the Joker's test and the consequences for failing will be strong. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Aaron Ray Jr. Jun 13, 2023

    The best aspect of the Bat-Family are their personal connections to one another. While Batman Inc is still struggling to bring that out, the Joker's dilemma will either build or break this team. If Nightrunner's situation is foreshadowing a diaspora, then I totally predict a few members of the team to take Joker's deal. In fact, Gray Wolf, Wingman, and Nightrunner are the most likely to break Batman's rule. Telling roguish characters like Willis Todd to “Kill the Jokers, Save The Hostages” is asking for trouble. Overall, John Timm's line art sets a fun tone, but is often distinctly ugly. The artwork does not impede from the strong moral dilemma. Luckily, Joker's new plan is a welcome upgrade from the abandoned roulette idea in the previous issue. Read Full Review
