Gotham City has been remade. Omega reigns supreme. Can Batman finally accomplish what no other hero has and free the world from his dark reflection's shadow? Or is it too late for the recreated Caped Crusader?

    Wrapping this chapter of their solo Batman run is artist Greg Capullo, who delivers more of the signature style on Batmans universe that has become his hallmark since the mid-portion of this decade. From multi-paneled pages to stunning full page pieces, Capullo delivers some amazing work bolstered by the inking of longtime collaborator Jonathan Glapion and the gorgeous coloring by FCO Plascencia.

    Sequential Planet - Geoffrey Luu Dec 29, 2019

    Batman: Last Knight on Earth ranks as one of Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo's greatest stories; this concluding issue absolutely sticks the landing. Last Knight #3 sees the New52 Batman creative team at their peaks as they close the book on the character, delivering an incredible story, fantastic art, and a ton of cameos and callbacks to both the New52 Batman run and the greater DCU. Last Knight on Earth is a must-read for Batman fans; while it's sad to see this version of the character reach the end of his journey, it could not have ended on a higher note. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Wes Greer Dec 18, 2019

    If you haven’t had a chance to get into Last Knight, you must live under a rock first of all, and second you really need to pick up the first two issues as well as this one. I promise you, you will send me an email thanking me for telling you to do so. It is very sad for me to have to wrap this last review up and if any of you want to have a cry as well I am here for you! It is not all that sad though because the team made sure to give this last story their all and make sure they left off with a bang. Last Knight in Earth #3 is available today so please, run, walk, ride you bike, drive, have your mom take you, I don’t care how but pick it up now! Its been a hell of a ride Scott and Greg and from the bottom of my heart, Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Travis Tucker Dec 18, 2019

    This was a fantastic story with what I see to be a very deep meta-commentary on Bruce, Gotham and its place and impact in DC. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Derek McNeil Dec 22, 2019

    In Batman: The Last Knight On Earth #3, Snyder demonstrates the common thread of DC's Rebirth initiative. Snyder presents us with a horrendously bleak dystopian future for the DCU, yet Batman redeems that future, reviving the hope that lies at the heart of the DC Universe. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Dec 18, 2019

    A run like this deserves an equally epic mic drop, and while Snyder and Capullo aren't going anywhere " they're likely the creative team on the next great DC event come summer " this is the perfect ending for their Bat-run. Much like Doomsday Clock, this is destined to be a timeless DC classic. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Dec 18, 2019

    Greg Capullo's art is amazing. He fills the characters with brilliant details and the action is composed like a brutal, beautiful dance. Every panel is gorgeous to look at and they complement the tone of the story perfectly. Read Full Review

    Capullo's art is especially amazing here. These two have had an amazing time on Batman. You honestly couldn't ask for a better ending. It really is the perfect end that Snyder and Capullo have created. Kudos, gentlemen. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Dec 18, 2019

    This is a fitting and satisfying end to Snyder and Capullo's final three-issue arc. It capitalizes on the concept of a Batman who would clone himself, pays off on new reveals of the future, and most importantly makes strong statements about Joker and Batman himself. If this is their final word on the character, they've done an admirable job capturing a unique purpose for him as he serves as a shining beacon to hold the line even when there's only a glimmer of hope.

    GWW - Nick Friar Dec 18, 2019

    Snyder always makes the mistakes believable. Honestly, Snyder's execution of those mistakes in Batman: Last Knight on Earth and Dark Knights Metal is the linchpin in each of those stories. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Morgan Hampton Dec 18, 2019

    It's like you've gotta go through so much hell before you can achieve true happiness, but it's the hell that puts the happiness in perspective and allows you to appreciate it. If this is truly Snyder and Capullo's last teamed take on the Caped Crusader, what a better way to send him off? They have tortured him senselessly over the years, all the way up until the final pages of this book. And finally he's repaid with a younger, less injury-ridden body and a world that he gets to help jumpstart instead of one he's trying to save. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Dec 24, 2019

    Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo do an excellent job ending their Batman run with Batman: Last Knight On Earth #3. They present a story that could very well be the final Batman story told and are successful in crafting a world that captures your imagination. While Batman is the star of the show there are plenty of characters, like Wonder Woman, Dick Grayson and Barbara Gordon, that get time to shine. Having all these characters play a key role in the story made Batman: Last Knight On Earth an even more fitting end to the epic run on Batman that Snyder and Capullo crafted together.

    Batman-News - Casper Rudolph Dec 18, 2019

    The writing, even with its hiccups and flaws, is on point and the art is top notch, and all in all it's just such an epic adventure featuring Batman and several members of the Bat family. If you don't mind wordy comics and if you have an open mind with regards to the way some characters are being written, you're likely to have a good time. Recommended! Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Jason A. Fleece Dec 21, 2019

    Snyder and Capullos collaboration on Batman has been an achievement, any way you look at it, and the first two issues of this series were an exciting part of that monumental task. Its unfortunate, then, that Batman: Last Knight on Earth leaves so much unexplained. Read Full Review

    Last Knight on Earth, in my opinion, was the best Batman comic of the year, with amazing artwork, a weird and psychedelic story, and a firm understanding of Batman's role in the DC Universe. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Dec 18, 2019

    This is a story of wild creativity rather than something refined and harnessed as a narrative - and as such, will not be for everyone. But for those who have already been won over by Snyder and Capullo's voices as comic book creators, they will probably find enough to enjoy with this over-the-top swan song. Read Full Review
