    Batman Tales: Once Upon a Crime is a fantastic collection of stories based on fairy tales. While easily understood and enjoyed by children, the messages shared in each story are often applicable no matter who or how old you are. With the exception of the last story "which is more somber than the rest" each tale is filled to the brim with laughter and wacky moments indicative of everything you might have loved in Lil' Gotham. No matter what, if you're an old fan or a new one I'd highly suggest picking up this book. Read Full Review

    Overall, Batman Tales: Once Upon a Crime is a definite level up for the creative team of Fridolfs and Nguyen, taking the elements that made their earlier stories work and adding more depth, more comedy, and some inventive art tricks. This is a worthy addition to the DC all-ages OGN line. Read Full Review

    Batman Tales Once Upon A Crime is ostensibly a work for young children. But it is an easy, wonderful read for adults as well. While it would do better to stray away from the traditional story-telling a bit more, it is a lot of fun seeing these characters interacting against new backdrops but still keeping the cores of their personalities the same. Batman and his cast have always worked well against new backdrops and different worlds and tales such as these are much more interesting rather than tales that simply place superheroes in high school. The amazing art and solid character work here make this simple book an immense pleasure to read. Read Full Review

    Could have been better written for children, Dustin Nguyen's watercolor impression of the pint sized heroes was pretty fantastic though.
