    Liam Sharp delivers another masterpiece in hyper-realism. His impressive artwork accentuates this dark and twisted tale magnificently. As always, I found the panels emotionally engaging and transportive. And for the final time, I implore readers to treat this series as an art enthusiast collector's edition. Read Full Review

    As for the art, Liam Sharp's work has been reflective of the story's tone from start to finish. The water colors made things a bit confusing in certain spots, but that was largely an effective choice. Would love to see this pair get another shot at flipping another beloved DC character on their head Read Full Review

    However, the pacing of Batman: Reptilian #6 was off-kilter, it all went a bit too quick. The ending felt a bit rushed to me, especially when almost everything else throughout the series has been done at a steady pace. Although, if the last few lines are anything to go by, this may not be the end of our wild Killer Croc Baby. I do hope that there's more added to the series because the ending didn't really scratch that itch, unfortunately. Read Full Review

    On every level, Batman: Reptilian has proved to be an exercise in frustration, and if anything, it's made me want to go back and read Batman comics that are much more compelling. Read Full Review

    What an utter disappointment.Batman: Reptilian promised a legendary creator putting his spin on Batman, but what we got instead was what we've gotten far too often lately: a cowl inhabited by the inflated ego of a creator who thinks he's bigger than the characters that have built the industry in which he labors.

    Ennis has written some brilliant superhero stories over the years, but he's not at home on a character like Batman whose moral code defines him. Read Full Review

    I will definitely pick this up physically for my collection when it comes out. This is so much fun, if you can get over your attachment to a preconception of a character, and let yourself have that fun. If you can't make fun of the things you love, you're a sour sack of shit, honestly. I for one loved how this issue ended with the Nolan Batman technique of not killing someone, yet also not saving them. Whereas I find those movies extremely overrated and their depiction of Batman to be obnoxious, with this I can just have fun with that ending, because this is a ridiculous story befitting of its ridiculous end. Plus, I really doubt this one is going to have fanboys cumming over it, which can only be a good thing.

    Holy shit. What a fun black label story. I'll definitely pick this up in a Hardcover whenever it gets collected.

    We have here the end of a series I was unsure of at the start. Now that is over, I can definitively say I'm glad I read it. I know others had their own issues with it, but I absolutely found the story to be entertaining beginning to end.

    This was a pretty decent story, but with a rather disappointing conclusion. I just feel it could have been better. So much was unanswered and the origins of this thing were never really clear either. But if they're planning a sequel I don't know if I'll bother. Best to just leave it as is and move on. Though I will give this series credit for being one of '21's more interesting Batman stories and a mini-series that actually never suffered delays. Though this issue alone isn't too great, the entire story altogether is pretty exciting.

    Yeah, Batman letting that guy get killed it's totally not in character. It seems to be a theme this week, writers not getting what heroes are. Ennis was always this way so I get that, but Batman is bigger than his edginess.
