    Part five of Sins of the Father is definitely my favorite in this short series and it makes me anticipate the conclusion. Although this saga isnt part of the regular continuity, I continually recommend this Batman series to any fans of the character; it reads like many classic stories with a refreshing twist on character developments and evolution.

    Comic Crusaders - Kevin Given Jun 25, 2018

    Batman works best as a detective, but it's always great to see his action skills put to the test too. Here we have a villain that thinks he's every bit Batman's equal and so far he's stayed one step ahead of the dark knight for this entire issue. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Dan Chruscinski Jun 20, 2018

    The penultimate issue of the miniseries sets the stage for one heck of finale by giving us a believable motivation for the actions of Deadshot. The ghost of Thomas Wayne looms large over all the characters and I can't wait to see if Bruce is made to pay for his father's sins. Read Full Review

    Easily the standout Batman comic that DC has done through its digital-first line, Batman: Sins of the Father, which was designed as only a bridge comic for the next Batman: The Telltale Series game is quickly turning into a very interesting story about revenge, family legacy, and how far Batman will go to protect those he cares about.

    Though this series won't be one of my favorites regarding the character, Gage and Ienco are putting out an interesting work that has shades of the familiar but also feels distinctly different. Read Full Review

    All in all, it's a fun edition to the series, but doesn't have the same charm as its predecessor. It does set the stage for an interesting finale, so hopefully the last issue can tie it all together. I've enjoyed the miniseries thus far and tonally it's a perfect interlude to the two seasons, but I was hoping that the penultimate issue would distinguish past its identity as a tie-in like the second act managed to accomplish.

    Batman-News - Daniel Cheeseman Jun 20, 2018

    Due to the amount of action contain therein, issue #5 is a read that flies by but it's worth revisiting for the emotion and artwork on show. Gage and Ienco return to full strength and effectively set up the series' finale. Read Full Review

    Issue #5 of this video game-inspired series regressed to the mean a bit after an outstanding issue last time around. Read Full Review
