    Batman: Sins of the Father was one of the most enjoyable Batman limited series Ive read in some time. An added bonus was that this story is based on a game that I thoroughly enjoy as well. Even though its not a mainstream tale, this is an arc to check out if youre into the current line of King and Tynion; both Bruce and Batman are given focus, bringing more depth to this DC icon.

    This video game tie-in wraps its run after only six issues, bridging the gap between the Telltale series of Batman video games, but Batman: Sins of the Father proves that this is much more than just a simple tie-in. Read Full Review

    The journey into the past is pretty good here and it certainly makes it easier, issue after issue, revelation after revelation, to dislike Thomas Wayne more and more. The fear is that even with Bruce trying to do his best to correct things as he can is that the dislike bleeds into him as well simply because of how much it's dragging him down. Read Full Review

    Ultimately, it looks my initial speculation was right: if you're a fan of the Telltale games and wanted more of that particular tone and story, Sins of the Father will quench that thirst. If you're not a fan of Telltale (don't know why you wouldn't be, though) or want a more impactful Batman storyline, there's a lot of other great starting points you should pursue first.

    This issue brings the arc to a close in a very satisfying way, with the Bat and the homicidal gunman butting heads after a great buildup that intrigued me in the same way classic Batman tales – and the Telltale Games series – did,. Christos Gage manages to include some really touching moments, developing the character of Bruce Wayne and this particular version of Batman in a variety of different ways. Ultimately then, Sins of the Father serves as an intriguing, grounded addition to the established canon, and is well worth a read, particularly if you're a fan of the Telltale Games series.

    Batman-News - Daniel Cheeseman Jul 18, 2018

    Batman: Sins of the Father is a very straightforward tale. It's firmly grounded, there aren't many surprises or moments of levity and it isn't stuffed withcomplexity, intertextuality or subplots. For better or worse, it's theopposite to the kind of stuff most writers are doing with Batman at the moment. Ienco's individual style and diligence in every particular is admirable and fans willappreciate his replication of design elements from the game series. Though the series went awry in the middle, Gage has successfully introduced his own take on Floyd Lawton (who I still felt sympathy for despiteall his goading this issue!), continued the tale of the game's raw, emotional Bruce Wayne and steered the series to a satisfying conclusion.

    The Batman Universe - Dan Chruscinski Jul 18, 2018

    The finale of the series was a bit of a letdown after an otherwise entertaining run. Everything was wrapped up very neatly and a little too quickly, like putting the toys back in the toy box after playing with them. Read Full Review
