    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

    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

    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

    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.

    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

    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

    If this is really the end of snyder and capullo on Batman, I must say bravo. I loved it, Snyder may have fallen off the wagon since metal with batman, but this series cemented at least for me, his love and great knowledge of the character. It's about Batman being human and not an automaton, cough cough Tom king. Batman is not a depressed maniac who fights an endless war on crime, he is happy, his choices in life may not be the greatest nor end in the a happy ending, but he makes the most of his situation and continues the good fight, while opening his life up to others. This book made me really emotional about that and now that Snyder is apparently ending his story on Batman with this, it makes me even more emotional. Great stuff. And more

    THE GOOD:

    -This was good. It tried a bit too hard at times, but overall I had a fun time.

    -Well, I mean, yeah. The art’s amazing. I think that’s why I liked the last issue so much; it was basically a showcase for Capullo’s art. This issue was more plot-focused, and it took down my enjoyment just a bit.

    -This is a great depiction of Joker. His connection to the story felt forced in that Scott-Snyder-everything’s-connected sense, but as far as his personality goes, he’s the most likable person in the comic for me. His humor’s solid and there was a bit more here in regards to the exploration of his relationship with Batman.

    -I liked the middle of this issue the best. It had a fun, heis more

    I can't agree with Snyder's view on Batman. This is a book full of edgy stuff but lack of true sentiment. Also Snyder's obsession with Batman and the Joker being friends is so weird.

    To give you a scope regarding the deeply intense intimacy found in this issue: Re-read issue 51 of Scott Snyder's run (if you can) and then read this monster. It's a fully-fledged swan song celebrating Snyder's run, Batman + Joker, DC, and superheroes in general. And that's the tip of the iceberg because I don't know where to even begin concerning Greg's insane pencil-work. Then you have the colors, the ink-work, the letterer...

    This is a pure superhero comic (with an edge, of course (Black Label)) through and through. What a way to end the decade. Seriously. Now to wait for the absolute edition...

    Hot damn, Snyder, what have you created? A world that one maxi series can't do justice. There's just too much to tell here, so much to explore, to leave it as it is. And I wish DC does exactly that - while the main continuity is pretty divisive these days, and the percentage of underwhelming, stagnant or boring series seems to be on the growing trend, elseworld comics offer much needed refreshment, unpredictability and freedom for both writers and readers. Last Knight on Earth passes in all three categories. From the beginning, it was a quality series, with its own indisputable identity. I wish there was more comics like this - ones not afraid to take risks and be their own things, but at the same time not change things for the sheer shock more

    This was good. That's it. I had a good time reading it, but I don't think I fell in love with it like everyone else seems to. Maybe it's because I don't hold the same reverence for Snyder's Batman as most people. This was a fun Elseworlds, and that's it for me.

    Holy hell, what an issue. The reveal of who Omega is... its amazing. When i first read it, I was like "What the hell?" but in context it makes perfect sense. Go read this monster, its incredible. It uses the Black Label line to tell one of the darkest but oddly enough hopeful comics, I have ever read. Minimal cursing, tho I would have liked a few F-Bombs, it still deserves it's R-Rating for the sheer darkness and brutality this series has given us. A fantastic end to this legendary run

    Prelude:
    Man, it has been forever since the previous issue of Batman: Last Knight on Earth. Let's see how Snyder and Capullo go with landing this final issue of their Batman.

    The Good:
    Something that this issue highlights so well is Batman's relationships with his family, enemies, allies and himself.

    I love the post-apocalyptic world that Snyder has crafted in this series.

    This series pays issue to every arc in Snyder's run and it is great.

    Omega is an interesting twist. He was interesting enough and stood as a good parallel for the Last Knight Batman.

    Capullo's art is fantastic in this issue.

    A great conclusion to Snyder's tenure on Batman and Capullo's time on the more

    Beautiful. A perfect Batman story, now one of my all-time favorites. Everything in this issue is just insane! The ending was confusing to me, but after thorough study, it all makes perfect sense. The final twist is so compelling and deep, with the Bruce Wayne we've been following being a clone, created to stop the real Bruce Wayne, Omega. Fantastic story plus incredible art equals a perfect mini-series.

    A great end to a great series! Snyder and Capullo really outdone themselves here. I would like to see the Darkseid head hold a bit more power in death and maybe Batman should have left Omega broken instead of killing him but these are small gripes that don’t take away from a good short series.

    It wasnt bad, but not great either.
    However I am quite annoyed by these evil versions of Bruce& him gaining the Anti life equation& enslaving/ abusing everyone is quite over the top. If Bruce gets corrupted, whenever he has some sorts of power then this doesn’t make him look like a hero, because he breaks & betrays his morals way too easily. I honestly also expected more, when it comes to Omega‘s identity. So this is another Batman fanboy story, where he is too overpowered. The other characters, be it villains or heroes arent used well in this issue. They are just there, but don’t really have a purpose in this story.

    As for Joker he is fun in some scenes, but I don’t know, why Batman 2.0. suddenly decides he is a f more
