    I would be lying if I said this wasn't a necessary read if you love Batman and Bruce Wayne. Honestly, we have had a few favorites in the past few months from DC. They are creating these narratives for teenagers that are being done incredibly well. The stories are modern, but they aren't changing the character we know and love. They are not modifying the personality of Bruce, but instead, making the narrative more kid-friendly if necessary. That is important to understand. Read Full Review

    Stuart Moore does a decent job getting this story to the comic book page. The real star here is Wildgoose. His art is vibrant and the storytelling is excellent on his part. He has taken a very standard story and made it great. His art alone is worth the price of admission. A decent book with a great look to it, Batman: Nightwalker was very enjoyable. Read Full Review

    Batman: Nightwalker is an enjoyable take on the Batman mythos, and one of the stronger DC Ink books to date. The story is fairly boilerplate, but there's quite a bit of good character work here, and it's visually stunning from beginning to end. It stands on its own well enough, and piques my curiosity to the point that I want to check out the novel it's based on as well. Read Full Review
