It got the Riddler. It got the Penguin. It got Deadshot, Hugo Strange, Two-Face, Tweedledee, and Tweedledum. It has left carnage in its wake as it moves through Gotham’s villainous underworld, and Batman finds himself vexed by one very important question: Just what on Earth is it? Now the Dark Knight’s search for clues has him tracking The Joker. But wouldn’t it be funny if the mysterious creature stalking Gotham got to the Clown Prince of Crime first?

    Batman: Reptilian is a mix of style and substance, creating one of the best stories I've seen come out of DC since A Serious House On Serious Earth. Read Full Review

    The story by Garth Ennis is very well done. I love every bit of dialogue here. The artwork by Liam Sharp is absolutely fantastic. He has never been better and this is quite good. Read Full Review

    The artwork in this issue perfectly captures the tone of the story. Sharp's hyper-realistic drawings and intense color work are emotionally engaging. As the story plays out, the horror vibes get increasingly stronger, and the illustrations perfectly reflect that. In terms of visual appeal, this episode will leave you breathless. Read Full Review

    Regardless of whether this is Croc or a new player altogether, Ennis has built this character up to be the biggest bad Gotham has seen, and I can't wait to see Sharp's vision for this creature. Read Full Review

    ‘Batman: Reptilian' #3 continues to present a much darker and cynical Gotham City with a vigilante to match. This issue it's the Joker who's wearing a target on his back. But, can Batman save him in time? Read Full Review

    BGCP - Michael Lennox Sep 7, 2021

    Well, I'm too invested now in the series to blackout and it's been fun watching the antagonist tearing up the various villains and henchmen. This sociopathic Batman, Ennis has created, is far more terrifying than the pantomime “Batman Who Laughs” and takes no prisoners. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Brian Warshaw Aug 28, 2021

    I feel like Batman: Reptilian #3 crosses a line with some of its dialogue that makes its other flaws a bit more stark. It's still a good mystery, and I still want to see where it goes, but I'm more and more of the opinion that I won't be revisiting it ever again once I'm done. Read Full Review

    There is a nugget of a compelling, complex Batman tale in the center of this story, but it feels way too bogged down by both its brutality and its utter banality. Read Full Review
