    Both stories in this week's Streets of Gotham are fantastic reads with great twists. Paul Dini and Marc Andreyko have hit their strides with the writing and are helped out with really great art. Plus, and perhaps most notably, Damien is written as an interesting character for what feels like the first time ever. Read Full Review

    If you haven't been liking what Morrison is doing over with Batman and Robin (I know I haven't) and are looking for a great Batman series that focuses on Gotham City as a whole and is really interesting and compelling then this is the series for you.

    I was a little worried that Dini taking some time off of "Batman: Streets of Gotham" would derail the momentum that had finally started to build, but if anything I think it's helped in terms of storytelling. "Batman: Streets of Gotham" is that rare series that I think has continually improved as its creators get settled in. That's definitely reason to celebrate. Read Full Review

    The series' Manhunter back-up serial continues to add value to this book every month, and is probably the strongest example of DC's double-feature initiative. This week suffers a bit from the inconsistent fill-in work of Cliff Richards, but the intersection of Kate Spencer, Harvey Dent and Dylan Battles' lives remains as captivating as ever. This back-up could easily support its own title. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Chris Kiser Dec 18, 2009

    Month after month, Streets of Gotham (the Batman portion, anyway) exhibits a clever blend of self-containment and serialization. It is a mixture that can become volatile, however, if its components are not put forth in the right proportion. Read Full Review
