With the power out across Gotham, Batman must haul the not-particularly-cooperative villain responsible, E.M.P., across miles of chaotic city streets, filled with terrified people and opportunistic criminals! Blackgate Prison can nullify E.M.P.'s destructive electrical powers, if Batman can survive long enough to get them there-but what happens if there are two people loose in Gotham with those powers? What then? The mega-talented Jock (Batman: The Black Mirror, The Batman Who Laughs) writes and draws the blockbuster story of Batman's worst night!

    Comic Crusaders - M.R. Jafri Mar 31, 2022

    This book is a worthy read and should be used as a model for how to make a great modern Batman book. The art, the action, the colors and the characters shine through. This book reminds us not only of what a great character Batman is, but what a great character Gotham is and how amazing the comic medium can be when done right. Read Full Review

    It looks great, it's a fast-paced adventure, and it understands that Batman is often at his best when he has no one to rely on. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Ronnie Gorham Mar 29, 2022

    Batman: One Dark Knight #2 brings us to the halfway mark as this is only a three-book series. It'll be fun to see how it all comes together and if Batman can get the power back on for the good citizens of Gotham. This issue has great pacing, plenty of action, and it's one you won't want to miss. Read Full Review
