    While this issue of Batman: The Dark Knight was not as good as its stellar first issue, there is still enough here to recommend due to some truly amazing art by Finch and Williams and some really fantastic and surprising scenes. For now, this book is still worth your time and money. Read Full Review

    Maybe I'm being a pessimist, but I'm not holding out much hope for the rest of The Dark Knight. Delays can be forgiven if the quality of the book shines through. However, with Finch's The Dark Knight I come away pissed that this is all I got after taking so long to release. Maybe this series would be better served as a pin-up gallery for Finch's gorgeous Batman work. Then I wouldn't have to worry about plots or character development. I could just enjoy this book for what it is: an artistic showcase. But even then, who the hell knows how long it would take? Read Full Review

    So many of the revamped Batman line of comics have proven to be a blast ("Detective Comics," "Batman," "Batman Incorporated," "Batgirl") but two issues in, there's nothing new being brought to the table by "Batman: The Dark Knight," save for some increased violence. The plot itself is slightly unoriginal, but even worse it's lethargic in its pace. Add in a slow publication schedule and this is rapidly feeling like a book that needs to be re-thought, editorially. This isn't working. Read Full Review
