    Marquez delivers some beautifully detailed art on every page. I love the different locations and character moments. Especially how the art makes you feel like part of the moment. Read Full Review

    Batman: Killing Time might be one of those few books that I collect in single issue and trade form. Tom King, David Marquez, Alejandro Sanchez and Clayton Cowles may have created a modern masterpiece that you can recommend as someones first Batman story and I can only hope that this team comes back for more!

    While not perfect, the story remains a fascinating and engaging piece of Bat-lore and certainly is one of the best Batman stories of the year pound for pound. Read Full Review

    Ultimately, it's a very strange story but a far more satisfying one than the recently concluded Batman/Catwoman. Read Full Review

    As a final issue to this series, King does a great job wrapping up the story here. What was essentially the heist and mad dash after an ancient artifact comes to an end here with the story behind it all laid bare. He does this using Clock King's own POV and narration to wrap up final story threads, and check in on each major character we met along the way. His, and even Batman's motivations are revealed, and the story comes to a satisfying conclusion. This is a miniseries worth reading and re-reading just to catch everything you missed the first time around. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Aug 2, 2022

    It's an exciting time to be a Batman fan as this story offers some resolution and satisfaction. For a story that toys with time, it's exciting to know regardless of the characters, the creators did something different with the comics art form and made you think a rare thing in Batman comics.

    Dark Knight News - Eric Lee Aug 6, 2022

    Overall, the whole mini-series was a fun crime chase story arc. There were twists, mysteries, and plenty of action. It feels like more than just a typical action comic, without being too ponderous. Batman: Killing Time #6 provides characters and scenes that are fun and enjoyable, so much so that they almost overshadow the series' flaws. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - William Tucker Aug 2, 2022

    Batman: Killing Time #6 does not leave with the same majesty as it started with, but it tried really hard to. What is certain is the glorious art by both Marquez and Sanchez has made this comic a visual masterpiece. And for the majority of the comic the plot is well-crafted and poetic in its narration. The characters are interesting, but their conclusion does not always fit the power they had in earlier chapters of the series. All of these roads were meant to land in the same destination, but many of them hit a dead end. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Aug 2, 2022

    Batman: Killing Time #6 completes the run with a finale that's all exposition and clarifies what we've already suspected. This series was nothing more than Clock King doing something because he had nothing better to do. The art is gorgeous, but the reading experience was intentionally, unnecessarily tedious, and the big revelations fell flat. Read Full Review

    Maybe its not a shock that Kings latest mini-series couldnt stick the landing. This has been a common theme of the majority of his recent work. Hes got plenty of ideas, but continually fails to put it all together even if hes got all the time in the world. Read Full Review
