Based on the hit video game series from Telltale Games! Having eliminated all the obvious suspects behind the killing of former Arkham employees, Batman breaks into the most secure area of the facility to search their most deeply buried files, only to be ambushed by the villain known as Black Spider. Meanwhile, the search for Deadshot's true identity points toward a family called the Lawtons-a family with a dark and twisted history.

    Its almost a shame this limited run is half way over but Im over the moon excited to see what issue four has in store, especially after that final introduction. Im always open to new ways of diving into the psyche of Bruce Wayne and Sins of the Father truly doesnt disappoint. Read Full Review

    Sins of the Father has established itself as a high quality alternate take on Batmans universe. This is a mini-series, but I really wouldnt be upset if this creative team kept playing in this sandbox. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Mikkel Snyder Apr 18, 2018

    This issue definitely erred more on the Batman side of the of the narrative and vets of the games probably can deduce what this means for the next issue, but Gage has raised the stakes and it's anyone's guess how deep Bruce Wayne will get into when confronting his past. I'm definitely looking forward to the next issue. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Dan Chruscinski Apr 18, 2018

    An exposition-heavy issue still manages to engage as it connects Deadshot and Batman by, appropriately enough, the sins of their fathers. Read Full Review

    While we know that Deadshot is in this and he's on the cover, his presence in the book is minimal overall and it works nicely as it comes across as though he's hunting his prey. Which he is, so it's fun to see how he's doing it while Bruce is still trying to get a handle on it all. This book balances the two halves of his life well and throws in some fun with both Gordon and the board of Wayne Enterprises, which is its own powder keg of chaos waiting to explode. Ienco's artwork is something that I continue to really enjoy but also have a hard time adapting to with these characters. But there's no denying some really strong scenes and panels here, particularly once we get Batman mixing it up with the criminal element. Read Full Review

    There's a compelling central conflict, but its execution isn't quite there yet, as it has to exist in between the moments of a video game. Read Full Review

    Up to this point I've felt that Batman: Sins of the Father was standard at best, but mostly pretty mundane. Issue #3 broke that trend and actually delivered an interesting comic, one that long-time Batman fans are sure to enjoy. Read Full Review
